Krivak lV class frigate ordered for Russia's Black Sea Fleet 

The Yantar Shipyard in the Baltic area of Kaliningrad is to start the construction of a new Krivak IV class frigate for Russia's Black Sea Fleet.

The Admiral Makarov is the last in a series of three Krivak IV class frigates built for the Russian Navy under a tender won by Yantar in 2010.

The first two ships in the series, the Admiral Grigorovich and the Admiral Essen, are at various stages of construction.

All three warships are expected to be delivered to the Russian Navy in 2013-2014.

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.
