The Amur shipyards, a unit of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) based in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, launched the Sovershenny corvette on Friday. The ship was built for the Russian Pacific Fleet, a shipyards spokesman told Interfax.

“The ship has been moved from the workshop to the dock. Representatives of the shipyards, the Pacific Fleet and the territorial government attended the ceremony. Equipment will now be installed, and the ship will undergo tests, including sea trials. The Sovershenny is due to join the Pacific Fleet before the end of this year,” he said.
