The Yantar Shipyard in the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad will start on Friday the construction of a new Krivak IV class frigate for Russia's Black Sea Fleet.

The lead ship of this series, Admiral Grigorovich, was laid down on December 18 of 2010, the second ship, Admiral Essen, was laid down on July 8 of 2011 and the third ship, Admiral Makarov, was laid down on February 29 of 2012.

Yantar should hand six frigates over to the Navy between 2014 and 2016.

In 2011, the Yantar shipyard received a new order for another three Krivak IV class frigates.

A Krivak IV class frigate is equipped with a 100-mm gun, a Shtil medium-range air defense system, Club-N supersonic anti-ship missiles, two Kashtan point defense systems, two twin 533-mm torpedo launchers, and an anti-submarine warfare helicopter.
