    The Build Specification of ASW Corvette released in July 2003 specified a displacement of 2500 tonnes and achievement of maximum speed of 25 knots and cruising speed of 18 knots at ambient temperature of 400C. GRSE clarified (November 2005) that it was not in a position to ensure stipulated weight as per Statement of Technical Requirements approved by the Navy. At the time of signing of the contract in June 2012, MoD increased the displacement to 3170 tonnes. Audit observed that the actual displacement of the first two Corvettes (3017 and 3018) delivered was 3384 and 3490 tonnes and the maximum speed achieved was 23.9 knots and 22.8 knots. The drop in the achievement of the specified speed was mainly on account of increase in weight of the ASW Corvette by over 800 tonnes from initial envisaged 2500 tonnes
