The lead frigate "Admiral Gorshkov" is now at the final stage of state tests. The delay in transferring it to the fleet is associated with the delivery of the Polymer-Redut air defense system. Hopefully, in December, the last rocket launches will be successfully completed, and the ship will be accepted by the fleet. That is, we do not lose such hopeDeputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov told reporters.
According to him, “depending on the delivery of the Polyment-Redut air defense system on Admiral Gorshkov, the situation with Admiral Kasatonov (the first serial frigate of the 22350 project) will be immediately clear.”
All general access systems and units of this ship have already been commissioned, there are no complaints about the Severnaya Verf. Only the counterpart "Almaz-Antey" is kept with the delivery of the above-mentioned system,added Borisov.
