    Pictures: Russian Navy 2nd Project 22350 Gorshkov-class Frigate Being Fitted Out in St Petersburg

    Pictures published by spotters in Russia show the second Project 22350 (NATO reporting name: Admiral Gorshkov-class) frigate "Admiral Kasatonov" nearing completion at Severnaya Verf (Northern Shipyard) in Saint Petersburg.

    The pictures are showing that the Furke-4 volume search radar is in place at the top of the main mast. The A-192M 130mm main naval gun system is still to be fitted however.

    The frigate was laid down at Severnaya Verf on 26 November 2009 and launched on December 12, 2014. Start of sea trials was scheduled for 2016 but has been pushed back to 2017.

    The lead ship of the Project 22350 series was laid down in early 2006 and set afloat in the fall of 2010. The frigate started its trials in November 2014. Delivery date to the Russian Navy is still uncertain. Launch of the third ship of the class, the Admiral Golovko, is scheduled for 2017.

    The Project 22350 frigate is designed to fight surface warships and submarines in the ocean and coastal areas and repel air attacks both independently and within a formation. The Project 22350 frigate is flush-decked and has three-island superstructures, a tower mast and a steel tube. The ship has a lower radar signature.

    The Project 22350 frigate has a displacement of 4,550 tons and a length of 135 meters. The capacity of its diesel-gas-turbine power plant is 65,000 hp. The ship is armed with the new A-192 130mm artillery gun and anti-ship, antisubmarine and air defense missile systems, including the Kalibr and Redut-Poliment systems.
    The ship is capable of carrying a Kamov Ka-27 (Helix) helicopter or its versions.

    If NPO Saturn has started to produce the engines for the ships of the class, then the delays won't affect the "Admiral Golovko" and "Admiral Isakov" (3rd and 4th ships of the class) that much, so they could be delivered in time. I don't want to speculate, but I think that if "Admiral Gorshkov" (lead ship of the class), will be commissioned in early 2017 (or maybe this month), and Kasatonov will start its trials at the same time, it is likely to be commissioned in late 2017 or early 2018, then Golovko would finish its trials in mid to late 2018, and would be commissioned shortly after that.

    I have heard some rumors that Golovko and Isakov would be commissioned to the Pacific Fleet, which is IMO highly unlikely, since they should be constructed at an other shipyard in the Far East, and AFAIK all current ships of the class will be constructed at Severnaya Verf, and will be issued to the Northern Fleet.

    In the future (around 2025-2030) other fleets will receive such frigates too (except the Black Sea Fleet, which will have 6 Admiral Grigorovich-class frigates,— currently, they have 2 — and the Caspian Flottila, which has 2 Gepard-class frigates)

    Russian Navy to receive 1st Project 22350 Frigate Admiral Gorshkov in first half of 2017

    The Project 22350 lead frigate Admiral Gorshkov will be delivered to Russia’s Navy in the first half of 2017, Navy Chief-of-Staff Vice-Admiral Andrei Volozhinsky said.


    Project 22350 lead frigate Admiral Gorshkov in St. Petersburg in October 2016

    "Shipyards always face difficulties when they develop vessels, especially lead ships. However, this task will be accomplished within the next several months. I am glad that there are no time limits. Thorough work is under way so that the Navy receives a perfect finished ship," Volozhinsky said.

    It was reported in November that the frigate Admiral Gorshkov had completed its state trials but the decision on its joining the Navy would be taken only after all its systems were checked.

    The Project 22350 lead frigate Admiral Gorshkov was laid down in early 2006 and put afloat in the autumn of 2010. The ship 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.

    The Project 22350 frigate has a displacement of 4,500 tons and a speed of 29 knots. The frigate is armed with Oniks (NATO reporting name: SS-N-26 Strobile) and Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) missiles and the Poliment-Redut air defense missile system.

    Yeah, of course it is vastly more important to get ships into service on time because those times were set by god and must be adhered to within the strict bounds of religion and mother nature.

    Then again putting a vessel into service just to meet a deadline that has no other meaning than being an arbitrarily date based on guesses of how long everything takes that did not take into account unforseen problems with the engines and the 130mm guns and the self defence missile systems, is very naive.

    Here is your ship... it is on time even though it does not work but boy I guess you are really happy you got it on time... right?

    Look man you can defend this colossal failure all you wish.

    11 YEARS for a ship of that size regardless of it being built with new tech is a disgrace.

    If this was a carrier that would be MUCH MUCH more understandable.

    All your are saying here means the shipbuilding industry cannot get their heads out of their ass. THe mere fact the systems or whatever isn't done yet is NO excuse after 11 years.

    There is NO defending this failure. Also this ship HAS it's engine so don't even use that here.

    Agreed.  The Zumwalt Class is an unmitigated disaster. Or maybe you mean the LCT?....

    By contrast, the Gorshkov may be well behind schedule, but she is a useful design and will be a huge leap forward for the RuN once all the bugs are resolved and the engine supply issues are resolved.  Until then, test her until she breaks and make 100% sure that all of her systems, sensors and weapons function as intended and that she is fully fit for purpose.

    We aren't talking about another ships here.

    I have no doubt it will be a good ship, just saying this timeframe is beyond absurd.

    It shouldn't take them 11 years to sort out all these bugs, hell they still haven't gotten the Redut to work fully.

    Russia has a major problem with it's ship building industry in getting things done on time.

    To pretend otherwise does nothing.

    I am quoting you Seig but this is directed at everyone and I have to start somehow:

    This is not fast and Russia does have problems with naval construction. This is no mystery.

    However this most recent news you seem to be arguing over is at least month old. At first I assumed it was some big news that got all of you guys to lose your mind but it was just false alarm. This delay is nothing new.


    And as for delays in general I will repost something I wrote elsewhere:

    I personally have one very simple rule about Russian Naval construction: ignore vessels whose construction started before 2010. I just don't take their delivery speed into any assessment.

    Reason: before 2008 Georgia incident nobody in Russia gave 2 sh*ts about military and navy in particular. So let's say it took them couple of years to get off their asses and you get year 2010.

    I will gladly criticize any ship whose construction started after that point but as for stuff before that, when they come, they come.

    Call it force majeure and save yourself (and others) some hassle.

    If I'm right, the naval versions of land based air systems are done by a different design bureau. Maybe that's the problem. Like I said before It's the implimentation of system that has issues not the building part. The second ship of the class is ready when it comes to its construction. It's not really shipbuilders that are bad, it's the engineers of these systems.

    Gorshkov is a small frigate compare to what's done abroad. It should be build very fast. Kilos and Grigorovitch frigates are done normally. I don't know but they probably will do the next ones faster once they resolve all the issues. They really need Gorshkov frigates, they will be the backbone of the Russian Navy, at least they should build those which will replace sovremenys.

    Kilo class is proof that they can get things done when they have their sh*t together.

    As for Gorshkovs they need to build them in several shipyards. Like Karakurts.

    If it is that important platform then give it priority.

    Well said Papa,
    The bolded part is the key factor.

    Some members here think that the new frigates (Gorshkovs) are the most important thing for the Navy.
    They are not.
    The Navy's priorities are different from the priorities of some forum armchair generals. In addition, priorities change from time to time depending on geopolitics, finances, military objectives etc.

    A few years ago, the Black sea fleet had only one old submarine (Alrosa) which was most of the time in repairs and overhauls. Priority was for the 6 new Kilos which were built quickly. Same applies for the Grigorovich frigates which were being built in decent timeframes until the Ukrainian sourced engine problem occurred. Same can be said about the Buyan missile ships.
    Currently the priorities seem to be the Karakurts and more recently the minesweepers.

    Sorry, the Gorshkov and Steregushy classes are not that high on the priority list. The Ivan Gren is also not an eagerly waited ship as long as there are enough Ropuchas and Alligators for the Syrian express.

    Russia has a major problem with it's ship building industry in getting things done on time.

    Given the context no it isn't an absurd time frame.

    First of all for the period of the 1990s there were no orders, no contracts... all the infrastructure was rubbish and obsolete... the workers likely earned a living driving taxi cabs or other such work.

    When you get a contract to build a ship the first thing you have to do is totally retool the factory and then the next thing you have to do is hire an entire workforce and train them on the new equipment.

    Even after doing that you now have the pleasure of building ships the Soviets and Russians never built before. They are of a totally new design paradigm... ie not just a new class of vessel but a new concept in ship building with a modular multirole design with weapons and sensors and systems for roles no previous Russian vessel was ever capable of.

    More to the point the new systems are rather advanced... Poliment Redut has an active phased array radar of significant size this has to be integrated and operate with dozens of other new sensors and systems... you can just put them in the ship and expect them to work perfectly.

    Next you have problems with propulsion... even if everything else was perfect they could not have gotten the ship operational without propulsion system and they are only just ready now as a Russian made product.

    Then you have issues with the main gun and the SAM system... but because this vessel will be modular and multirole it does not matter if it takes 15 years to get it into service because once all the problems are sorted out they can make dozens of them, and they should be able to make them fairly quickly once everything is working.

    Shouldn't we blame almaz antey for not fixing the redut
    on time?

    I would say yes if the process of navalising a SAM system simply consisted of taking the wheels and tracks off the land vehicle and inserting the whole vehicle hull into the deck of a ship with the sensors mounted up somewhere high to have good fields of view.

    The actual task of navalising anything is difficult and complex... a land battery of S-350 vehicles don't operate within 50m of very very powerful AESA radars of different types and also within 50m of Pantsir and other radar based systems and other jamming and decoy systems and of course several radar directed guns of various calibres.

    The Seawolf missile was able to hit a 114mm shell in flight but missed an incoming Exocet missile because the radar the Seawolf used to track targets was jammed by the satellite communications system the Sheffield used to communicate with London... crap like that can cost you a ship in combat...

    The Gorshkov might just be a frigate but it carries the C4IR system that all other Russian vessels will be carrying leading to a fleet of AEGIS class type vessels that will be very potent and able to operate as a networked team.

    They really need Gorshkov frigates, they will be the backbone of the Russian Navy, at least they should build those which will replace sovremenys.

    They have already stated that Udaloy class vessels are going to be refitted with Uran missiles... not much use for an ASW destroyer like the Udaloys were, but better than nothing for an ASh Destroyer to replace the Sovremmenys... which makes sense as their propulsion is likely more reliable.

    The Russian Navy does not need to be a huge fleet so there is nothing critical about getting hundreds of ships into service any time soon.

    Via Balancer forum, Gorshkov is in dry dock with a bunch of scaffolding up around superstructure.

    Just a bit of maintenance/spruce up or maybe some upgrades?

    Well it is a new system... it could be as simple as that... but then why would it only effect the long range missiles?

    Russia's 2nd Project 22350 Gorshkov-class Frigate Adm. Kasatonov to Start Sea Trials this Summer

    The trials of the first serial-produced Project 22350 frigate Admiral Kasatonov will start in the summer of 2017, Former Commander of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet Admiral Igor Kasatonov said in an interview with RIA Novosti news agency.

    "The second Project 22350 frigate Admiral Kasatonov will start undergoing trials in the summer of 2017. The ship is planned to be delivered to the Russian Navy in late 2017 - early 2018," Kasatonov said.

    As President of Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov told TASS earlier, the Project 22350 lead frigate Admiral Gorshkov will be delivered to the Navy in 2017. A decision on the delivery time has already been made, he added.

    The Project 22350 frigate is designed to fight surface ships and submarines and repel air attacks both independently and within a formation.

    The Project 22350 frigate is flush-decked and has three-island superstructures, a tower mast and a steel tube. The ship has a lower radar signature, which makes it virtually invisible for the enemy’s radars.

    The Project 22350 frigate has a displacement of 4,550 tons. The capacity of its diesel-gas-turbine power plant is 65,000 hp.

    The ship is armed with the new A-192 130mm artillery gun and anti-ship, antisubmarine and air defense missile systems, including the Kalibr (NATO reporting name: SS-N-27 Sizzler) and Redut-Poliment complexes. The ship is capable of carrying the Kamov Ka-27 (Helix) helicopter or its version.

    I don't know it for sure, but I think that the ideal production rate of the frigate would be at 1, maybe 2 ships per year.

    First Project 22350 Frigate Admiral Gorshkov to be Delivered to Russian Navy in Late July

    The lead frigate of Project 22350 (NATO reporting name: Admiral Gorshkov-class), the Admiral Gorshkov, will be handed over to the Russian Navy in late July, President of the United Shipbuilding Corporation Alexei Rakhmanov told journalists.

    "New deadline has been fixed as test trials of armaments have been completed. I believe it will be strictly observed this time as by the end of February we shall complete the inspection and return to the test range with weapons which have to get the lettering necessary for inclusion in the fire power of the warship," he said and specified the new deadline is the end of July.

    The Admiral Gorshkov had its keel laid in early 2006 and was floated in the autumn of 2010. In November 2014 it sailed out for the first test trials. The second frigate of the series, the Admiral Kasatonov was floated in 2014. The floating of the third warship, the Admiral Golovko is scheduled for 2017.

    The Project 22350 frigate displaces 4,500 tons and accelerate to 29 knots. She carries, inter alia, the Oniks (SS-N-26 Strobile) and Kalibr (SS-N-27 Sizzler) missile systems and Poliment-Redut surface-to-air missile system.

    I have seen some reports that indicates that the first two frigates of this class will be delivered to the Black Sea Fleet.

    Why? Question dunno

    The BSF is already receiving Project 11356 ("Admiral Grigorovich"-class) frigates, why would they need Gorshkovs?
