    Shipbuilders float out latest frigate for Russian Navy

    The Admiral Golovko is the third-built and second serial-produced frigate of Project 22350

    ST. PETERSBURG, May 22. /TASS/. The St. Petersburg-based Severnaya Shipyard (part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) floated out the Project 22350 third-built and second serial-produced frigate Admiral Golovko, the Shipyard told TASS on Friday.

    "The frigate Admiral Golovko has been put afloat," the Shipyard said.

    The Severnaya Shipyard earlier built two Project 22350 frigates. The frigate Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov has been in service with the Northern Fleet since July 2018. The frigate Fleet Admiral Kasatonov has completed its trials and is preparing for its delivery to the Russian Navy. The frigate Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Isakov is currently under construction at the Shipyard.

    On April 23, 2019, the Severnaya Shipyard laid down two modernized Project 22350 frigates. Two more frigates are expected to be laid down soon.

    Project 22350 frigates carry two Kalibr-NK and/or Oniks universal shipborne launchers of eight missiles each. The frigate Admiral Gorshkov is taking part in the trials of the Tsirkon hypersonic cruise missile.

    Project 22350 frigates are expected to become the Russian Navy’s most advanced warships in their class. These frigates displace 4,500 tonnes and can develop a speed of 29 knots. In addition to Oniks and Kalibr cruise missiles, they are armed with Poliment-Redut air defense missile systems.

    The Severnaya Shipyard is one of Russia’s largest shipbuilding enterprises, which builds advanced frigates.

    Russia is peaceful country. Spends very little on defense. Sakhalin bridge costs a lot of money and that is priority to connect Moscow with Yuzhno Sakhalinsk by road.

    Each UN member state flies its flag at the UN headquarters. SAA flag is the one flown at UN headquarters, making it the only one that is UN backed.

    So you have no prove that Assad govt back by UN,but instead to troll, go lives in your fairy tales
    And flag of Syria in UN doesn't means UN backed Assad govt

    Its only show Syria is UN member and nothing else, do you have any proofs that any UN officer said that UN backed Assad govt in Syria????

    why are these frigates taking 12 years to build ?

    this is slightly faster at 8 years but that is a seriously long time

    No $$$$, Russia is focusing more on its Air force and Subs than surface ships

    Russia has enough surface ships. The latest Gorshkov frigates and Gremyashchiy corvettes are cool.

    mostly outdated, 70s and 80s era ships, and corvette is nothing in front of Destroyers and Frigates, doesn't able to reach in deep and open oceans like Destroyers and Frigates
