India might consider acquiring four warships from Russia’s Yantar shipyard, which has built six frigates for the Indian Navy, Ria Novosti quoted the Shipyard’s chief Oleg Shumakov as saying on Wednesday.

"We will explore the possibility of new orders to build [vessels] for the Indian fleet. In any case, India has already said it is interested in acquiring four more advanced modified ships," Oleg said.

Representatives of the shipyard are expected to discuss the question of future contracts during talks in India later in February, Shumakov added.

He described the shipyard's experience in building Talwar-class frigates for the Indian Navy as "fruitful and mutually beneficial."

The firm has delivered the last of the three guided missile frigates to India in 2014 based on $1.6 billion contract signed in 2006.
