United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) is about to lay down the first destroyer with missile defense elements in 2016, said the head of USC Roman Trotsenko on June 22.

"The question is a 6-ship batch of new destroyers with elements of missile and space defenses", Trotsenko said at the press conference during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, reports RIA Novosti.

Trotsenko did not specify what exactly missile defense element he meant. According to him, designing works on the new destroyers have started, "the first ship will be laid down in 2016".

The project is developed by Severnoye Design Bureau, Trotsenko added. "The ship will be constructed in St. Petersburg. Most likely, the order would be halved between Severnaya Verf and Baltiysky Zavod shipyards", noted the corporation's director.

"In fact, that would be mobile stations of Russia's space defense in the World Ocean", Trotsenko described the new destroyers.
