They are characterized by superior combat efficiency than their predecessors. The optimal combination of acoustic stealth and target detection range, the latest inertial navigator, advanced automated information and control system, powerful high-speed torpedo and missile armament ensure the overall priority of these cruisers. submarines in the construction of conventional submarines.

Project 20380 ships are armed with multipurpose artillery guns, surface-to-air / artillery missile systems, supersonic missiles and automatic artillery launchers. Project 20380 corvettes can carry a Ka-27 helicopter. They move 2,200 tonnes and have a crew of 99.
