Russia and India earlier signed a contract for the construction of four Project 11356 naval frigates. Two of them are planned to be built at the Yantar Shipyard in Russia’s Kaliningrad, while the other two will be constructed at India’s Goa Shipyard Limited (GSL).

“Our usual construction time is 36 months, and I hope we will meet the deadline,” Rakhmanov said in response to a question.

Project 11356 or the Naval frigates are developed to attack rival surface ships and submarines and countering air attacks independently or in cooperation with other ships in a naval task force.

The frigates are armed with 100-millimetre artillery piece A-190, Kalibr and Shtil missiles and torpedoes. Every such frigate has a displacement of 3,620 tonnes and a length of 124.8 meters and can carry a Ka-27 helicopter. The 111356 frigate’s full speed is 30 knots and its operational range is 4,850 miles.
