Soobrazitelnyy (Сообразительный - Smart/Astute) is the second ship of the latest class of corvettes of the Russian Navy, the Steregushchy class. The ship is being built by the Severnaya Verf shipyard in St.Petersburg and was laid down in May 2003. It was launched in late March 2010 [3] and joined the Baltic Fleet in the 2011.

The ship is the first of the class to be fitted with the Redut system intended to increase its anti-aircraft capabilities with respect to the Kashtan CIWS previously used. The corvette was shown to the public for the first time at the Fifth International Maritime Defence Show (IMDS-2011) in St. Petersburg.[4]

In April 2017, Soobrazitelnyy and sister Boikiy were escorted through the English Channel by HMS Sutherland.[5]
