Carriers of Zircon missile systems will receive new weapons systems and equipment
Modern Russian frigates of project 22350 are being modernized. The first in line is Admiral Gorshkov. It plans to improve electronic equipment: radars, reconnaissance equipment and electronic warfare systems. They will also update the electronic filling - it will ensure the reliable operation of Zircon missile systems. Changes were made following the operation of two ships of this series. Experts note that frigates will become more powerful and reliable.
First in a series
It is planned that similarly all frigates of project 22350 will be finalized, sources in the Ministry of Defense told Izvestia. New ships of this type will be built taking into account the experience of operating weapons systems, life support and control on existing combat units.
Good news and unsurprising given that Gorshkov was laid down in 2006. This represents the typical evolutionary improvement of technologies (plus design improvements made during the protracted commissioning of Gorshkov), those systems that will be rolled out on the serial builds (Golovko onwards?) are being retrospectively applied to Gorshkov and maybe Kasanatov.
