A corvette is traditionally the smallest class of vessel considered to be a proper warship. In modern terms, a corvette is typically between 500 tons and 2000 tons although recent designs may approach 3000 tons. They are usually armed with medium- and small-caliber guns, surface-to-surface missiles, surface-to-air missiles, and antisubmarine weapons. Many can accommodate a small or medium antisubmarine warfare helicopter.
