Russia may (will) offer newest Karakurt-class (project 22800) missile corvettes for sale abroad.
Cutting-edge Karakurt-class corvettes, capable of launching Kalibr cruise missiles, may be exported to a number of Asia-Pacific countries, Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov has announced on Monday. “These ships are pretty good, they have large displacement and are well-armed,” Borisov was quoted by RIA Novosti, adding, “Kalibr is what makes the difference.”
Yes, Kalibr (and Oniks) and, I may add, navalized Pantsir starting from the third hull of the first batch of these ships are what makes all the difference in the world, giving these corvettes a massive fire-power. It was clear from the get go that these ships have a massive export potential. It was just confirmed. Now, expect yet another round of sanctions on Russia and those who would be buying Karakurts.
