Remember when the most recent 2 Retiviy & Strogiy were laid down at Severnaya in 2015 as cheaper 20380 rather than too expensive 20385?
There was some mention of improved radar which I think we generally presumed = replacing the inadequate Furke with one based off the Pantsir-S2 radar.
Apparently at the laying down ceremony they were unusually furtive with the name plates, allowing only distant shots before they were covered up.
What can be seen is the mast has similar profile to 20385, Puma firecontrol is absent from the bridge.
Seems the purchase orders are for 20385 radar sets rather than 20380 sets so gonna be some kind of 20380/20385 hybrid
