The modern Russian Navy currently (2017) fields five Steregushchiy-class guided-missile corvettes. Some twelve are planned with seven completed and five in active service. Among the group is the Boikiy (532) built by Sevemaya Verf of St. Petersburg. Her keel was laid down on July 27th, 2005 and she was launched to sea on April 15th, 2011. The warship was formally commissioned on May 16th, 2013 and is assigned to the Baltic Sea Fleet.

Boikiy displaces 2,100 tons under full load and has a length of 343 feet, a beam of 36 feet and a draught of 12 feet. Her propulsion scheme is a COmbined Diesel And Diesel (CODAD) arrangement allowing either full use, or partial use, of the marine diesels to accomplish full-speed dashing actions or general cruising as an economical measure as needed. Power is through 4 x 16D49 series diesel units developing 24,000 horsepower to 2 x shafts. 4 x Diesel generators (630 kW output) are also installed. This arrangement allows the warship to make headway at 26 knots and range out to 4,000 nautical miles. Endurance with onboard stores and fuel supply is about fifteen days for the crew of 100.

The Boikiy mounts the Furke-E 3D air-search radar and the TK-25E-5 Electronic CounterMeasures (ECM) systems. 4 x PK-10 series launchers serve decoys as needed. Armament is 1 x 100mm A-190 turreted deck gun along with 2 x AK-630M Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWSs). 2 x 4 330mm torpedo tubes are also carried as are 2 x 14.5mm MTPU heavy machine guns for extreme-close-range actions.

At the heart of the Boikiy's armament suite, however, is the 32-cell missile launcher housing either 9M96E/M or 9M100 Surface-to-Air Missiles (SAMs). There are also 8 x 3M24 missile launchers featured allowing the warship to tackle just about any incoming ranged threat. To further broaden the vessel's over-the-horizon capabilities is a helipad set over the stern managing a single Kamov Ka-27 Anti-Submarine / Anti-Ship helicopter.

The Boikiy's silhouette is very modern with most of the mass centered on the superstructure. The superstructure is well-contoured to the existing shape of the hull, reducing protrusions that may increase the vessel's signature to prying radar systems. Over the forecastle is the turret housing the main deck gun. The bridge is integrated into the superstructure and offers a commanding view over the forecastle and to port and starboard. The smoke funnel is also integrated and of a low-profile design. The superstructure is stepped down towards the stern helipad deck.

Boikiy was one of the Russian warships featured in the April 2017 incident in which several ships passed through the English Channel and were noted by the British Royal Navy. HMS Sutherland was called to escort the ships as they passed through the waters.©MilitaryFactory.com
