MOSCOW (TASS-DEFENCE): The Project 11356 frigate Admiral Makarov built by the Yantar Shipyard in Kaliningrad in west Russia and armed with precision missile weapons will join the Russian Black Sea Fleet in November 2017, the Defence Ministry's press office said.

"The Project 11356 frigate Admiral Makarov is planned to join the Black Sea Fleet and arrive at its home station in November 2017 after it completes all stages of its trials and is prepared for a passage from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea," the press office quoted Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief Vice-Admiral Viktor Bursuk as saying.

According to Bursuk, the ship will make the Black Sea Fleet's operation in its area of responsibility more effective.

The frigate Admiral Makarov was laid down by the Yantar Shipyard on February 29, 2012 and floated out on September 2, 2015. It is the third Project 11356 ship built by the Yantar Shipyard on order of the Defence Ministry.

The first two Project 11356 frigates, the Admiral Grigorovich and the Admiral Essen, were delivered to the Black Sea Fleet on March 11, 2016 and June 7, 2016, respectively.

The Project 11356 frigate is designed to attack the enemy's surface ships and submarines at short and long ranges and fight aerial threats both independently and within a formation.

The Project 11356 frigate is armed with the A-190 100mm gun, air defence missile systems, including the Kalibr (NATO reporting name: SS-N-27 Sizzler) and Shtil systems, and torpedo tubes.

The ship can carry a Kamov Ka-27 (Helix-A) helicopter or its versions.

The Project 11356 frigate has a displacement of 3,620 tons, a length of 124.8 meters, a full speed of 30 knots and endurance of 4,850 miles.
