Hiddensee (corvette)

Originally commissioned by the East German Navy as the Rudolf Eglehofer, the Hiddensee is a Tarantul I class corvette built at the Petrovsky Shipyard in 1984, located near the Soviet city of St. Petersburg (formerly Leningrad). 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.




Sierran's comment: -> There is a 'Tarantul' apparently on display at the museum at Peenemunde, Germany: 54° 8'15.28"N / 13°45'53.41"E.
