KAZAN, May 10. /TASS/. The Russian Navy may place an order for Project 22800 small missile ships with the United Ship-Building Corporation, Head of the Navy’s Ship-Building Department Captain 1st Rank Vladimir Tryapichnikov said on Tuesday.
"The ships may be constructed by an enterprise of the United Ship-Building Corporation but a final decision has not been made yet," Tryapichnikov said.
According to him, there are plans to build a big number of Project 22800 ships.
The first two Project 22800 ships were laid down at the Pella Shipyard in the Leningrad Region in northwest Russia in December 2015.
Another Project 22800 vessel was laid down at the Morye Shipyard in Feodosia in Crimea.
The two enterprises do not make part of the United Ship-Building Corporation.
The first two Project 22800 ships, the Uragan and Typhoon, are planned to join the Russian Navy in 2017 and 2018.
