Description: The Project 11356 Krivak IV is a guided-missile frigate designed to counter surface ships, submarines and airborne threats operating alone or embedded into convoys. It is an evolution of the Soviet Navy's Krivak III class frigates. Due to the addition of stealth technologies and a special hull design, the resulting frigate features reduced radar cross section (RCS) as well as electromagnetic, acoustic and infrared signatures. Equipped with state-of-the-art Russian-made sensors and weapon systems, the Project 11356 frigate is a modern ship with balanced capabilities capable of countering modern Western naval assets. The ship's propulsion system comprises a two-shaft gas-turbine plant each developing 28,000-hp of power which allows for a top speed of 30-kt and an economic speed of 14 knots in Combined Gas And Gas (COGAG) layout. The ship's maximum range at economic speed is approx. 5,000 nautical miles. The electric power is provided by four 800Kw WCM800/5-type diesel generators. The cornerstone of the advanced sensors provided to the Project 11356 frigate is the Fregat M2EM air/surface surveillance radar. A flight deck and hangar allow operation of one Ka-28 or Ka-31 ASW and radar helicopter respectively.

The Indian Navy follow-on Talwar frigates or Talwar 2 is a program resulting of the Russian Navy cancellation of the construction of three Project 11356M frigates due to the propulsion system's gas turbine supplied by Ukraine. The initial agreement between Russia and India was signed in October 2016. Two vessels previously being built by Yantar shipyard for the Russian Navy would be transferred to the Indian Navy. Two new ships will be built by Goa Shipyards in India for its Navy with the powerplants being supplied by Ukraine. All in, the Indian Navy will commission four Talwar 2 stealth frigates beginning in 2019 or 2020 with more ships (2-4) expected to follow under a $4 billion deal.
