KALININGRAD, June 7. /TASS/. The Admiral Essen first production-standard Project 11356 frigate was commissioned for service with the Russian Navy on Tuesday.

The Russian Navy flag was hoisted onboard the frigate in a ceremony at the Yantar Shipyard in the westernmost port of Kaliningrad. The new ship will be assigned to the Black Sea Fleet.

"We are very satisfied with the ship. It has a balanced weapons suite - an artillery system, the sophisticated Kalibr [NATO reporting name: SS-N-27 Sizzler] missile system and a well-balanced up-to-date Shtil-1 [SA-N-12 Grizzly] surface-to-air missile system," Navy’s Shipbuilding Department Chief Vladimir Tryapichnikov said after the ceremony.

The frigate was laid down in July 8 2011 and floated out in November 2014. Its official tests took place in the Baltic and Barents seas and were completed on May 30 this year.

The Black Sea Fleet is to receive six Project 11356 frigates. The lead ship of the family, the Admiral Grigorovich, was delivered on March 11, 2016. The third frigate in the class, the Admiral Makarov, is scheduled for delivery in the third quarter of 2016.
