Keel of Russian Navy’s Fourth Project 11356 Frigate About to Be Laid

The Russian Navy’s fourth Project 11356 frigate will have its keel laid on Thursday, the Yantar shipyard said.

 The start of construction work on the Admiral Butakov frigate was postponed in October 2012.

The Kaliningrad-based shipyard is to build a total of six Project 11356 frigates under a contract with the Defense Ministry.

The lead warship in the series, the Admiral Grigorovich, was laid down in December 2010, the second, the Admiral Essen, in July 2011 and the third, the Admiral Makarov, in February 2012.

The shipyard is to hand over the six warships to the Navy between 2014 and 2016.
