The Project 22350 frigate is designed to fight surface warships and submarines in the ocean and at sea and repel air attacks both independently and within a formation. The Project 22350 frigate is flush-decked and has three-island superstructures, a tower mast and a steel tube. The ship has a lower radar signature, which makes it virtually invisible for the enemy’s radars. The Project 22350 frigate has a displacement of about 4,550 tons and a length of 135 meters. The capacity of its diesel-gas-turbine power plant is 65,000 hp.
