MOSCOW (BNS): Russian Yantar shipyard has completed the final sea trials of the first Indian frigate 'Teg', a media report said.

According to RIA Novosti, the test was competed at the Russia's Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad.

The frigate which was earlier scheduled to be delivered in April 2011 was delayed due to some funding short falls.

In 2006, India and Russia had signed a $1.6 billion contract for the construction of three modified Krivak III class guided missile frigates.

The other two frigates are still at various stage of development at Yantar shipyard. Each frigate will be armed with the eight BRAHMOS supersonic cruise missiles, it said.

The new frigates namely 'Teg', 'Teer' and 'Trikand' are follow ons of the three Talwar Class warships built for India by Russia and inducted into service around the early part of the decade.
