Future flagship of the Ukrainian Navy passes the first tests

Turkey has conducted the first tests of the new Ukrainian anti-submarine corvette of the Ada class Hetman Ivan Mazepa. This was reported by Turkish columnist Enes Balcı on the social network X.

"The Hetman Ivan Mazepa (F-211) corvette, which is being built by RMK Marine Shipyard as the main contractor, has passed its first navigation tests today," Balci wrote.

Construction of the new Ukrainian corvette began in January 2021: steel was cut and sections were formed. In September 2021, the ship was laid down in Turkey. By that time, 13 sections and the ship's keel had been formed.

The corvette will become the new flagship of the Ukrainian navy after the sinking of the Hetman Sahaidachny in connection with Russia's full-scale invasion.
