Two new vessels for the Russian Navy will be laid down simultaneously at the Northern Shipyard in St.Petersburg: the warship is the fourth vessel in the Admiral Gorshkov-class of frigates, and the other is the second in a new class of intelligence vessels, reports Barents Observer.

The keels of the two vessels will be laid down on November 14, 2013, when the Northern Shipyard celebrates its 101stanniversary informs Barents Observer, citing 'Lenta'.

The frigate, which will be named Admiral Flota Sovetskogo Soyuza Isakov (“Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Isakov”) , is the fourth in Russia’s new series of multipurpose frigates to replace the country’s old Udaloy-class destroyers.

Frigates of the Admiral Gorshkov-class are built with stealth technology and  will be able to execute long-range strike, anti-submarine and escort missions in remote areas. They have a displacement of 4,500 tons, a speed of 29 knots, a range of 4000 nm at 14 knots, and endurance of 15 days.

The intelligence vessel will be named “Ivan Khurs”. The 95 meters long and 16 meters wide vessel will have a displacement of 2500 tons and will be classified as a special communications vessel without any armament. The first vessel of the class, “Yury Ivanov”, was laid down in 2004 and put on water in September this year says Barents Observer, again citing a 'Lenta' news item.
