Russian Shipyard to build 4th Project 22350 Gorshkov-class Frigate Hull by January 2018
The Northern Shipyard in St. Petersburg in northwest Russia is planning to build the hull of the fourth Project 22350 frigate Admiral Isakov by January 2018, the shipyard’s press office said. The Northern Shipyard is a subsidiary of Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation.

"Blocks No. 3-4 and No. 2 of the frigate Admiral Isakov have been transferred to the second site of the slipway. Shipbuilders are currently planing the units for their further attachment and welding. The blocks are expected to be attached one another before late July and assembled and welded in August. We are expected to build the ship’s hull by January 2018," the press office said.

The frigate Admiral Isakov was laid down in November 2013. This is the fourth Project 22350 ship. The frigate was named after Admiral Ivan Isakov who had been Soviet Navy Chief of Staff during the Great Patriotic War and had made a significant contribution to the development of the country’s Navy.

The Project 22350 frigate is designed to fight surface ships and submarines on the high seas and repel air attacks both independently and within a formation.

The Project 22350 frigate is flush-decked and has three-island superstructures, a tower mast and a steel tube. The ship has a lower radar signature, which makes it virtually invisible for the enemy’s radars.

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 advanced A-192 130mm gun and anti-ship, antisubmarine and air defense missile systems, including the Kalibr (NATO reporting name: SS-N-27 Sizzler) and Poliment-Redut. The ship is capable of carrying the Kamov Ka-27 (Helix) helicopter and its versions.
