The Karakurt is a class of corvettes developed for the Russian Navy. Karakurt corvettes are intended to be a more seaworthy, blue water complement to the Buyan-M class corvettes, which had been designed for the littoral zone and are currently serving in Russia’s Caspian Flotilla, Baltic Fleet and Black Sea Fleet. The Karakurt is capable of carrying Kalibr or Oniks anti-ship cruise missiles.
