The frigate "Admiral Essen" is being promoted to the pre-launch position


The second frigate of project 11356 Admiral Essen, which is being built for the Black Sea fleet at the Yantar Baltic Shipbuilding Plant OJSC (Kaliningrad), is advancing to the pre-launch position, Interfax-AVN reports citing the company's press secretary Sergei Mikhailov
The Admiral Essen will take place on the pre-release, where the lead ship of this series, the Admiral Grigorovich, which was launched on March 14, previously stood.

According to the pre-launch position, the frigate will be saturated with equipment and mechanisms and gradually prepare for launching. It is planned that this event will happen this fall.

As reported, the lead ship of this series, the TFR “Admiral Grigorovich”, was laid at the 18 plant in December 2010, the following: “Admiral Essen” - 8 July 2011, “Admiral Makarov” - 29 February 2012, “Admiral Butakov ”- July 12 2013,“ Admiral Istomin ”- November 15 2013

At the same time, the official representative of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC), which includes Yantar, announced in the summer of 2013 about plans according to which another order for the construction of three frigates of this project would be placed at PSZ. There is still no contract for these ships, although a fundamental decision has already been made by the Ministry of Defense.

The frigates of this project are almost similar to those ships that were built on the "Yantar" for the Indian Navy.

PSZ "Yantar" specializes in the construction of warships and civilian vessels of various classes with launching weight up to 10 thousand tons, as well as in ship repair works. In total, the Yantar plant built more than 100 large and about 400 small civilian ships, repaired over 430 Navy ships and civilian ships.

    I read the news and think, and if only all three trillion were only for the fleet and the aircraft industry. To get out of this?

      It would be bad, Dry. troops rotted, many enterprises were left without orders, the answer is obvious.
      Everything should be updated gradually and evenly, this is all one chain!

          Industry will not get so much money. If only to steal 2/3. Or build new plants that cannot find the right number of skilled workers, and after the re-equipment program is completed, they will in any case be left without orders and will be closed.

    Great news!!! good The Black Sea Fleet urgently needs reinforcement. The main thing, for which we will keep our fists, so that it does not suffer the sad fate of the frigate of project 22350 "Admiral Gorshkov", laid down in 2006, which supposedly should be handed over to the fleet this year and are also going to be sent to the Black Sea Fleet, but the ship has not been installed The artillery mount, although it was promised to be installed immediately after the New Year, the last photos of the 12.04.2014 of the AU have not been installed. crying

      MDA with Gorshkov generally tightened. It’s not funny anymore and doesn’t fit into any framework. It is clear that the frigate is not run-in project, but time does not wait.

      Gorshkov will not go into operation this year, only in the fall they are going to the running gears. Damn this art installation, everything else is on it.

        Photoshop! Look at the wave pattern around the ships - 100% the same! Laziness was to work.

    Great news! Again Mother Russia has to re-arm herself urgently defending herself from her probable friends. We are glad that we have nuclear weapons that sober up any head abroad from trying to take advantage of the restructuring of our army. Let them not hope the 41st year will fail.

      You cannot go far alone with a nuclear weapon. We are methodically surrounded from all sides and looking for a loophole to level out our superiority.

    "Admiral Essen will occupy the place where the lead ship of this series, Admiral Grigorovich, which was launched on March 14, was previously located."

    Let's go, like on a conveyor. This makes me happy. Our fleet is replenished.

    Back in the 86th, 2 BOD and 1 BDK were simultaneously built at Yantar. And one more was preparing for the state ("Simferopol").

    Someone can say for sure this series will be continued? And then, just recently, everyone excitedly wrote that there would be only five pieces and the last frigate was canceled. Very good ship for its price. The price is comparable in value to 20385 corvettes (approximately 13-14 billion).

      They write will be doing the power plant on the "Saturn". "Saturn" of course in terms of parameters and at a price worse than Nikolaev, but if it really works out, then the series will be. But the price will certainly rise and there will be a delay while the power plant is produced, while it is tested, while it is being finished.

    it was high time to start updating the fleet. Of course, it’s glad that there are the least problems with this type of frigate. Only the fleet of such boxes needs an order of magnitude more

    Not that the news pleases the ear - caresses!
    I will surely take my children to Sevastopol to meet Essen.
    The youngest is already squeaking, he wants to gawk at the "zdalovy and klutoy kalabl"

    Russia. forward!

    God grant that the first two ships in the next year safely make the transition to the Black Sea Fleet, without delay!
    And we need a powerful fleet — remember one of the most shameful defeats of our country — the Crimean War — problems with the fleet were one of the most important reasons, the Russian-Japanese main reason for the defeat was the inability of our fleet to resist the Japanese, due to the fact that the system itself was rotted from preparation personnel before the construction of the ships. In World War II, a powerful fleet could significantly ease our situation — the defense of Leningrad and Sevastopol would be stronger, the Germans in the north would act much more constrained, and most importantly, if they could If we cut off supplies of many important materials from Sweden (for example, ore with bearings), then the production of military equipment would be reduced, and I think it’s not worthwhile to say how the situation on the fronts turned around then.
