Second Project 22350 frigate to begin Russian Navy service

7th July 2020 - 10:06 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Admiral Kasatonov will enter service with the Russian Navy this month as the first serial-production  Project 22350 frigate, TASS reported on 6 July.

The state-run news agency cited an interview in Russian MoD newspaper Krasnaya Zvezda with navy Commander-in-Chief Adm Nikolai Yevnemov, in which he said: ‘The ships of this Project confirm the inherent operational characteristics laid out by the designer and the manufacturer. The Project 22350 has large modernisation potential and will be further developed relative to some shipborne systems and armament.’

Project 22350 vessels can reach speeds of up to 29kt and have a total displacement of 4,500t. Armament includes Oniks and Kalibr missiles and Poliment-Redut air defence systems.

Admiral Kasatonov is the second Project 22350 frigate to be constructed by the Severnaya Shipyard, which is a subsidiary of United Shipbuilding Corporation.

First-in-class Admiral Gorshkov entered service with the Russian Navy in July 2018 and the third Project 22350 frigate, Admiral Golovko, was laid down in February 2012 and floated out in May 2020.

Three more Project 22350 frigates are in various stages of construction at the Severnaya Shipyard.
