Yantar Shipyard plans to complete the Tushil first frigate of project 11356 for India in 2023, shipyard CEO Ilya Samarin told TASS.

“Next year we plan to complete the Indian frigate. The warship prepares for mooring trials.”

The Tushil was launched in October 2021. The Tamala second frigate of project 11356 prepares for float.

Yantar was building six frigates of the project for the Black Sea fleet, which received Admiral Grigorovich, Admiral Essen, and Admiral Makarov. The construction stopped after Ukraine refused to sully engines for the frigates. Two frigates, the Tushil (former Admiral Butakov) and the Tamala (Admiral Istomin) are currently being built for India.

Russia and India signed contracts in November 2018 for the delivery of four frigates of project 11356. Two frigates will be built by Yantar and another two by Goa Shipyard Limited.

Frigates of project 11356 fight submarines and warships in brown and blue waters and repel air attacks both independently and within formations. They are armed with A-190 100mm artillery gun, antiaircraft missiles, including Kalibr and Shtil (BrahMos in India) and torpedo armaments. The warship can carry a Ka-27 helicopter or its modifications. The displacement is 3620 tons, the length is 124.8 meters. Full speed is 30 knots and the cruising range is 4850 miles.

About Project 11356 frigates

The Indian Navy already operates six Talwar-class frigates. Also as the Project 1135.6, it is a class of guided-missile frigates designed and built by Russia. A modification of the Krivak III-class frigates, the Project 1135.6 Talwar-class is fitted with a number of « Make in India » sub-systems.

The two follow-on Project 1135.6 frigates are to integrate the BrahMos cruise missile system in place of the 3M-54E Klub-N anti-ship missile and “advanced sensors”.

The Project 1135.6 warships are capable of reaching top speeds of 30 knots, have an endurance of around 30 days. They have a length of 124.8 meters and a displacement of about 4,000 tons. They are fitted with a flight deck to carry a helicopter for anti-submarine warfare missions.

The new frigates will deeply bolster Indian Navy capabilities in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) as the service is dealing with a shortage of 10 frigates out of the 24 that it needs.
