MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. The Project 22350 lead frigate Admiral Gorshkov has set off for a final stage of state trials, the press office of the Severnaya Verf Shipyard in northwest Russia reported on Monday.
The Shipyard completed a maintenance inspection of all systems and mechanisms aboard the frigate on Sunday.
"In order to complete state trials, the frigate has set off for the Northern Fleet’s practice ranges where the crew and specialists from the Severnaya Verf, and also from some design bureaus will test the antiaircraft defense and torpedo complexes and the automated control system," the press office said.
During the frigate’s maintenance inspection, the Shipyard’s specialists checked and restored after the previous stages of trials the resources of the warship’s basic mechanisms: turbines, the reduction gear, diesel generators, the systems of the main power unit and general ship systems, deck mechanisms and special hardware items, such as navigation equipment, communications and armament.
The frigate Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Gorshkov is the Project 22350 lead warship. The frigate has been designed by the Severnoye Design Bureau.
The Project 22350 frigate Admiral Gorshkov was laid down in early 2006 and put afloat in the autumn of 2010. The warship started undergoing trials in November 2014.
The second Project 22350 frigate Admiral Kasatonov was floated out in 2014. The third frigate Admiral Golovko is expected to be put afloat in 2017.
As President of Russia’s United Ship-Building Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov said earlier, the Admiral Gorshkov will be delivered to the Russian Navy in late July.
Project 22350 warships displace 4,500 tonnes and can develop a speed of 29 knots. They are specifically armed with Oniks and Kalibr cruise missiles and Poliment-Redut antiaircraft missile systems.
