Russia to float out new frigate on Friday

MOSCOW (BNS): Russia will float out its new Admiral Sergei Gorshkov frigate on Friday.

The warship, which is the lead ship of the Russian Navy's Admiral Sergei Gorshkov class frigates, has been designed for the Navy’s Black Sea Fleet.

“It is planned that the sea trials of the ship constructed using the latest methods in shipbuilding will begin in 2011,” a Navy spokesman was quoted as saying by Ria Novosti.

The frigate will be able to execute long-range strike, anti submarine and escort missions in far sea zones. It has a displacement of 4.500 tons and a length of 132 meters.

Russia plans to build at least 20 to 30 such vessels for its navy.
