Russia’s Pacific Fleet will soon get six diesel-electric submarines, eight corvettes and also a destroyer, nuclear-powered subs and small missile ships armed with cruise missiles, Pacific Fleet Commander Admiral Sergei Avakyants said in an interview with the Defense Ministry’s newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda on Wednesday.

“Until the end of 2018, we are planning to accept the Project 20380 corvette Gromky for service. This is the second corvette of this Project specially built for the Pacific Fleet under the rearmament program,” the admiral said.

The warship is currently at the final stage of shipbuilders’ sea and state trials. The naval flag will be hoisted aboard the corvette in late December, the Pacific Fleet commander said.

Next year, the Pacific Fleet will be reinforced with the Project 20385 corvette Gremyashchiy. The crew has already taken its place on the warship whose construction is nearing completion in a planned manner, he noted.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
