The pictures are showing that the Furke-4 volume search radar is in place at the top of the main mast. The A-192M 130mm main naval gun system is still to be fitted however.

The frigate was laid down at Severnaya Verf on 26 November 2009 and launched on December 12, 2014. Start of sea trials was scheduled for 2016 but has been pushed back to 2017.

The lead ship of the Project 22350 series was laid down in early 2006 and set afloat in the fall of 2010. The frigate started its trials in November 2014. Delivery date to the Russian Navy is still uncertain. Launch of the third ship of the class, the Admiral Golovko, is scheduled for 2017.

The Project 22350 frigate is designed to fight surface warships and submarines in the ocean and coastal areas and repel air attacks both independently and within a formation.

The Project 22350 frigate has a displacement of 4,550 tons and a length of 135 meters. The capacity of its diesel-gas-turbine power plant is 65,000 hp. The ship is armed with the new A-192 130mm artillery gun and anti-ship, antisubmarine and air defense missile systems, including the Kalibr and Redut-Poliment systems.
The ship is capable of carrying a Kamov Ka-27 (Helix) helicopter or its versions.
