Description: The Project 22350 multi-purpose class frigate has been designed to perform anti-submarine (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) in support of blue water operations. The ship design is based upon Project 11356 frigate built for the Indian Navy and also features stealth technologies. The Russian Navy intends to procure between 10 and 20 such ships through 2015 to serve with the Russian Navy's Baltic, Black Sea, Northern and Pacific fleets. Originally, the lead ship was expected to be commissioned in 2011 but is planned to join the Russian Navy in late 2017 or 2018. The Project 22350 implementation has been delayed to due to the availability of proper gas turbines which were produced originally in Ukraine.
The Project 22350M is a follow-on class destroyer with improved performance including a stealthier ship design and increased firepower. The new ship may feature increased displacement (8,000 or 7,000 tons) and mission endurance to support operations overseas in support of Lider-class destroyers. The lead ship of the improved Project 22350 is expected to be commissioned by the Russian Navy by 2026-2029.
