KALININGRAD (BNS): Russia’s Kaliningrad shipyard has begun the mooring trials on the first of the three warship missile frigate "Teg" ( "Saber"), built for the Indian Navy, a media report said.

The ships are constructed at the Baltic Shipyard (CCL) Yantar in Kaliningrad, Russia.

"Mooring tests are a serious, complex and important stage in the construction of ships. Upon completion it will be possible to withdraw the frigate from the factory to sea," ARMS TASS quoted shipyard spokesman Sergei Mikhailov enterprise as saying.

The shipyard plans to launch the main engine of the ship in April and by the end of May or early June, the frigate Tag will go through sea trials.
