The first-in-class Project 20385 corvette Gremyashchiy made its public debut in Russia's Navy Day parade in St Petersburg on 28 July.

The corvette represents a further development of the Project 20380 Steregushchiy class, from which the Gremyashchiy 's sensors, communications, and fire control systems are not thought to be significantly different, if at all. The key difference is in the Project 20385's missile armament. While the Steregushchiy-class corvettes are armed with two quad launchers with containerised Kh-35 (3M24) anti-ship missiles and the 12-cell vertical launch system (VLS) for the Redut (9K96) shipborne surface-to-air missile (SAM) system, Gremyashchiy is fitted with the latest iteration of the Agat Concern's 3S14 modular VLS and 16-cell Redut SAM VLS.
