The world's only exhibited example of a Soviet-built missile corvette, Hiddensee was designed to oppose any naval threat to the East German Coast, and to fulfill this mission carried long-range STYX anti-ship missiles and an array of defensive weapons designed to ensure her own survival. <br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=new/080505/594830admin.jpg>
