Project 22350 frigate, Admiral Kasatonov which is the second ship of the Admiral Gorshkov-class has nearly completed sea trials and will be delivered to the Russian Navy by the end of this year.
The new frigate will take part in the International Maritime Defense Show and the Main Naval Parade in St. Petersburg, the press office of the Severnaya Shipyard reported on Thursday.
The Shipyard’s delivery team and the frigate’s crew have held the trials of the warship’s main propulsion unit, the press office said.
During the next stage of the ship’s trials in the Baltic Sea, the crew of the frigate Fleet Admiral Kasatonov and the Severnaya Shipyard’s delivery team checked its main power unit at various speed modes, the operation of the steering and anchor handling systems, the ship stabilizer, the ventilation and air conditioning systems and held several shipboard damage control drills, the statement said.
The shipbuilders are also planning to test the frigate’s towing and mooring systems, communications, navigation equipment, the fire-fighting system, universal washdown systems and special equipment.
The ships in this class had a displacement of 4,500 tonnes, and capacity to carry up to 16 cruise missiles previously. Russia now plans to increase the displacement to 7,000 tonnes and upgrade them to carry 48 Kalibr, Oniks and Tsirkon cruise missiles.
Lead frigate Admiral Gorshkov of Project 22350 is part of the Navy’s Northern fleet. The country will begin testing its home-grown hypersonic rocket Tsirkon from the lead frigate this year.
The country is constructing two more frigates of this type (the Admiral Golovko and the Admiral Isakov) at the Severnaya Verf Shipyard in St. Petersburg.
