Corvette Ternopol
The Albatros -class (NATO reporting name: Grisha) was a series large anti-submarine corvettes built by the Soviet Union. These ships had a limited range and were used only in coastal waters. They were equipped with a variety of ASW weapons and an SA-N-4 surface-to-air missile launcher. All were fitted with retractable fin stabilizers. Russian type designation was Malyy Protivolodochnyy Korabl (Small Anti-Submarine Ship). The Grisha V class ships were built between 1985 and 1994. This incorporated further modifications with the 57 mm guns being replaced by a single 76 mm gun. About 28 ships remain in the Russian Navy, 2 ships - in the Ukrainian Naval Forces.
