Steregushchiy class project 20380 corvette Soobrazitelnyy launched in Saint Petersburg
Video summary: The sixty percent complete Soobrazitelnyy was launched at Saint Petersburg's Admiralty Shipyard. It is a stealth vessel whose radar cross section is ten times less than previous ships. The stealth characteristics are achieved through the use of special construction techniques. The Soobrazitelnyy will undergo sea trials this year and enter the Baltic Fleet in 2011. About two dozen of these ships are planned.
