MOSCOW, January 31. /ITAR-TASS/. The United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) does not rule out possible supplies of three frigates of Project 11356 to India’s Navy, vice-president for the state defense order and military-technical cooperation Igor Ponomaryov said on Friday.
“We’re holding talks with Rosoboronexport to promote the next three ships of Project 11356. There are no concrete applications although there is information that India’s Navy seeks to build the next three frigates,” Ponomaryov said, adding that “The frigate is good with the high stress coefficient - 280 days per year.”
Commenting on the so-called “75i” tender to acquire six diesel electric submarines by India’s Navy, the official said the tender would continue after the elections in India.
“Parliamentary elections will take place in India in the spring and no important decisions will be taken,” he said.
Ships of Project 11356 are designed to conduct military actions in oceans and seas independently and within units as escort vessels. Their military capabilities make it possible to search for and destroy submarines of an enemy, defend combat ships at sea, provide support to ground troops and make landing attacks.
