“The work is proceeding smoothly,” Rakhmanov said in reply to a question about the progress of R&D work on Project 22350M ships.
It was reported earlier that the Severnoye Design Bureau integrated into the USC had developed a preliminary design of the Project 22350M ship in 2019. In February 2021, CEO of the Severnaya Verf Shipyard Igor Orlov said that the time for the laying of the Project 22350M lead ship had not been determined yet.
At that time Rakhmanov said that the Severnaya Verf Shipyard would start to build Project 22350M ships after its upgrade. The shipyard is planned to get a new slipway for the construction of green-water warships in 2022.
