Frigate INS Tarkash built by Yantar shipyard (Kaliningrad, Russia) left the yard for India.

Being officially handed over to Indian Navy on Nov 9, frigate INS Tarkash (F46) left Yantar shipyard on Nov 14 and headed for Baltiysk port. There the Indian ship replenished all supplies needed for long-range cruise and laid a course for Mumbai on Saturday, Nov 17.

"Except for the crew, there is an aftersales service team onboard the ship. They are representatives of the shipyard and contracting companies manufactured arms and equipment", reports ITAR-TASS referring to the shipyard's press service.

During the 1.5-month long cruise and throughout the one-year guarantee period, specialists will control operation of the ship's systems and eliminate defects, if needed.

At present, Yantar continues building of the third ship in series for Indian Navy. Frigate INS Trikand (F50) will be delivered to the client in June 2013. The ship is currently passing dockside trials.

Project 11356 frigates developed by Severnoye Design Bureau are designed for naval warfare in remote sea zones independently and within task units as escort ships. Their combat capabilities make possible to search and hunt enemy submarines, carry out antiship, antiaircraft and antisubmarine defenses at sea, support inshore campaigns and assist in landing assault operations.
