    The last in a series of three frigates that Russia is building for India at the Yantar Shipyard in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad has completed contractor sea trials, a spokesman for the shipyard said on Friday.

    Sergei Mikhailov said the trials of The Trikand frigate in the Baltic Sea began on February 5 and were completed on March 14.

    “Within this period, the vessel carried out five voyages in the Baltic Sea, each lasting several days,” Mikhailov said.

    The Trikand is currently at the Baltiisk port, preparing for state sea trials. It is scheduled to join the Indian Navy in the summer of 2013.

    Russia and India signed a $1.6 billion contract on the construction of three modified Krivak III class (also known as Talwar class) guided missile frigates for India in 2006.

    The first frigate, INS Teg, joined the Indian Navy on April 27, 2012, and the second, The Tarkash, arrived at the port of Mumbai in India on December 30, 2012.

    The frigates are each armed with eight BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.

    They are also equipped with a 100-mm gun, a Shtil surface-to-air missile system, two Kashtan air-defense gun/missile systems, two twin 533-mm torpedo launchers and an antisubmarine warfare (ASW) helicopter.

    Oh... Kaliningrad Oblast, the Russian exclave between Poland and Lithuania on the Baltic Sea, is a federal subject of Russia

    The aforementioned problem practically spawned the subject of graph theory, which has extensive application in topology (very important in navigation, computer science , electrical engineering , most specifically circuit theory, computer networking). I learnt this during my third semester classes in college.

    Russian Frigate Built for India Starts Final Trials in Baltic Sea


    KALININGRAD, April 5 (RIA Novosti) - The last in a series of three frigates that Russia is building for India at the Yantar shipyard in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad has started final trials, a shipyard spokesman said on Friday.

    The Trikand frigate carried out workup trials on March 14 and was cleared for final state trials on April 4, spokesman Sergei Mikhailov said, adding the trials will last through the end of April.

    The frigate is due to be handed over to the Indian Navy this June, Mikhailov said.

    Russia and India signed a $1.6 billion contract on the construction of three modified Krivak III class (also known as Talwar class) guided missile frigates for India in 2006.

    The first frigate, INS Teg, joined the Indian Navy on April 27, 2012, and the second, The Tarkash, arrived at the port of Mumbai in India on December 30, 2012.

    The frigates are each armed with eight BrahMos supersonic cruise missiles.

    India’s Russian-Built Frigate Completes Sea Trials


    MOSCOW, April 17 (RIA Novosti) - The last in a series of three frigates that Russia is building for India at the Yantar shipyard in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad has completed sea trials, a shipyard spokesman said on Wednesday.

    The Trikand frigate carried out workup trials on March 14 and was cleared for final state trials on April 4, which started on April 8, spokesman Sergei Mikhailov said.

    Earlier on Wednesday the frigate effectively engaged a target flying at 50 meters above the sea level with its surface-to-air missile system, he added.

    The frigate’s Indian crew are to complete their onboard training practice within the next several days and after that it will return to the shipyard for a final inspection.

    The frigate is due to be handed over to the Indian Navy this June, Mikhailov said.
