Russia has a new missile corvette, the Project 22800

via Sputnik.
Russia’s newest small missile corvette Karakurt (project 22800) packs a formidable arsenal, including multipurpose missile launchers, an automatic cannon, an air-defense missile system and powerful electronic-warfare systems.

In terms of firepower, the Karakurt-class corvette will outperform the Buyan-M missile boats, but will be much smaller.
The sip was designed by the Central Naval Research & Design Bureau "Almaz" in St. Petersburg. The flagship of the project is being constructed at a shipyard in St. Petersburg.

A total of eight Karakurt-class missile corvettes are currently under construction, and the Russian Navy plans to have at least 20 such ships in the coming years.
Then this...
 Despite its size, the corvette boasts a versatile arsenal of advanced weapons, including the 3S14 missile launcher capable of firing Kalibr cruise missiles and Onyx supersonic anti-ship missiles.

Don't know what to make of this one.
