Project 159 Petya class

The Petya was a light frigate that was produced in larger numbers than the similar Mirka class, indicating a more successful design. A total of 45 Petyas were built for the Soviet Navy between 1961 and 1969 -- 18 of the Petya I type and 27 of the Petya II type. All 'Petya-I' class corvettes were discarded by 1989, all 'Mod Petya-I' by 1990-91, and all 'Petya-II' by 1994. The Petya III was the export version.
