Russian Navy

Project 133.1
Parchim class

The Parchim class was designed for defensive and patrol operations in the narrow, shallow seas of the Baltic. They were built in East Germany for the Soviet Navy in payment for Soviet economic and military aid. All units were delivered between 1986 and 1990, and were probably acquired as a subsidy for the East German shipbuilding industry. They are generally inferior to the contemporary Soviet-built Grisha in all respects. Once out of shallow, littoral waters, their value would be slight. The Parchim-II in Russian service is a modified version of the former East German Parchim I-class covettes (now in the Indonesian Navy).
