Russia’s Severnoye Design Bureau is ready to integrate the BrahMos strike missile system into the armament set of Project 11356M frigates for the Indian Navy.

The step for integration follows once they are ordered by India, TASS reported Wednesday.

"No problems will emerge with the integration of the BrahMos strike missile complex into the frigate.” , Severnoye Deputy CEO and Chief Designer for Special Hardware Vyacheslav Senchurov said.

“We have already integrated this system earlier into the other three Project 11356 frigates acquired by the Indian Navy," Senchurov said at the LIMA-2017 international maritime and aerospace show in Malaysia.

The Severnoye Design Bureau is the developer of Project 11356 warships for the Russian and Indian Navies while Project 11356M frigates are the follow-up of this series.

The first three out of six Project 11356 frigates operational in the Indian Navy are armed with the Russian-made Club-N strike system (the export version of the Kalibr cruise missile complex) while the other three vessels are outfitted with the Russian-Indian BrahMos multipurpose missile system that is capable of hitting both surface and ground-based targets.

Director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy at Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec Viktor Kladov said earlier that the planned contract for the delivery of Project 11356 frigates for the Indian Navy would be implemented under the "two plus two" formula:"Two frigates were planned to be built in Russia and delivered to India, meanwhile the other two would be constructed by the Indian ship-building industry at one of its shipyards.
