History of the Project 58250. Purpose and Features
Since 2006, the project was developed Nicholas's Enterprise "Research and Design Center of Shipbuilding", in 2009, the Commission adopted the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense Technology project Ukrainian multipurpose corvette (Project 58250). Ship stronger than standard ships "class" corvette "and by the power of approaching ships of class" frigate ". The ship will be able to do vsepolnotsenno function, missile, anti-ship and anti-submarine warfare. The appearance of the project shows that in its implementation will be used stealth technology.

According to the plan it will consist of 60% of the parts made in Ukraine will fall to other weapons purchased from NATO countries, where partners act Ukrainian shipbuilders companies from Italy, Germany, France and Denmark. The ship is designed on the principle of open architecture — in other words, you can set not only the Western weapons systems, and Russian.
