    Yantar shipyard to build three warships for Russian Navy

    MOSCOW (BNS): Russia’s Yantar Shipyard, which is building three Talwar-class guided missile frigates for Indian Navy, has won a contract to construct three similar warships for the Russian Navy.

    The shipyard will build the first three Project 11356 frigates for Russian Navy's Black Sea Fleet in its Kaliningrad facility.


    “The construction of the frigates for the Russian Navy will be carried out in parallel with the construction of the same-type frigates for the Indian Navy,” shipyard spokesperson Sergei Mikhailov was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti.

    Yantar has been building three Project 11356 class frigates for Indian Navy under a $1.6 billion contract awarded to it in July 2006.

    Named INS Teg, INS Tarkash and INS Trikand, the three vessels will be armed with BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missiles, 100-mm guns, Shtil air defense system, Kashtan air defense gun/missile systems, torpedo tubes, and anti-submarine warfare helicopters.

    INS Teg, which was floated out in November 2009, is expected to be handed over to India in mid-2011, Mikhailov said. The second and third warships are expected to be delivered in 2011-12, he said.

    The second warship, INS Tarkash, was floated out in June this year.
