The Admiral Grigorovich class (Фрегаты проекта 11356Р/М) is the latest class of frigates ordered by the Russian Navy for the Black Sea Fleet. Six ships (two batches of three ships)[2] have been ordered so far to be built by the Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad.

In October 2016, a contract was signed with the Indian Navy for four ships, two to be constructed in Russia and two in India.

History[edit]

Yantar Shipyard won the contract for the construction of the frigates on 8 October 2010. The contract for the construction of three frigates was to be completed in four years. The lead ship, Admiral Grigorovich was laid down on 18 December 2010 and was expected to be in service 34 months from that date (October 2013). Six similar ships were built for the Indian Navy, called the Talwar class.[3]

The class's original gas turbines were made by Ukrainian state-owned enterprise Zorya-Mashproekt. The company was a center of Soviet maritime gas turbine design and production.[4] The last three vessels remain without engines as of November–December 2014.[citation needed]

After the Ukrainian crisis, Ukraine said it would no longer supply the engines.[5] Instead Russian manufacturer Saturn was initially asked to supply alternative M90FP turbines. However, these cannot be completed before 2019–2020, and this delay seemingly means the Navy would rather use the funds elsewhere.[citation needed]

On 9 December 2015 it was announced that the lead vessel was being sent from the Baltic to the Northern Fleet for the next stage of state tests. Some weapons firings are not possible in the Baltic.[6] The lead ship was commissioned on 11 March 2016.[7][8]

Admiral Grigorivich was deployed to the Mediterranean Sea in November 2016 as part of Russia's deployment to Syria.[9] On 15 November 2016 Admiral Grigorivich launched Kalibr cruise missile strikes against ISIS targets in Syria.[10][11]

Export[edit]

According to a deal signed in October 2016, two frigates of this class will be exported to India and two more will be built in India for the Indian Navy.[12]
