The Project 12300 Scorpion missile gunboat (corvette) is designed to engage enemy surface ships, boats, and transports both autonomously and in cooperation with naval attack forces.
The boat's hull and superstructure are slanted (seven to ten degrees and more), and other stealth technologies are also employed to reduce its radar signature.
