Yantar has been building three Project 11356 class frigates for Indian Navy under a $1.6 billion contract awarded to it in July 2006.
Named INS Teg, INS Tarkash and INS Trikand, the three vessels will be armed with BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missiles, 100-mm guns, Shtil air defense system, Kashtan air defense gun/missile systems, torpedo tubes, and anti-submarine warfare helicopters.
INS Teg, which was floated out in November 2009, is expected to be handed over to India in mid-2011, Mikhailov said. The second and third warships are expected to be delivered in 2011-12, he said.
The second warship, INS Tarkash, was floated out in June this year.
