Russian escort Vessel Yaroslav Mudry to begin sea trials in late February

Russian escort Vessel Yaroslav Mudry to begin sea trials in late February 18.02.2009
The escort vessel of the Russian Baltic Fleet Yaroslav Mudry will begin sea trials in the Baltic Sea on February 26.

The ship on February 24 will complete its transfer to Baltiysk from the Kaliningrad, where it was built at the Yantar shipyards, and for two weeks, beginning form February 26, the crew of the ship, together with a group of specialists from Yantar, will practice a number of actions in the framework of in-factory testing.

The Navys flag will be raised on the new ship presumably in late March. The ship now has a crew of 27 officers, 31 sub-officers, and 155 sailors and foremen.

The Yaroslav Mudry has a water displacement of 4,500 tonnes, can sail at a maximum speed of 30 knots, is armed with missile complexes, antiaircraft systems, bombs, and a Ka-27 helicopter. Construction of the Yaroslav Mudry began at the Yantar in 1991, but work was suspended in 1994 due to lack of funding.

The Yaroslav Mudry is the second ship of the 11540 Project, after the Neustrashimy. The Neustrashimy recently took part in an antipiracy mission in the Gulf of Aden.

The 11540 project Yastreb is a promising series of escort ships designed to protect battleships and cargo ships against surface and underwater attacks, search, location, and the tracking of submarines. The ships can also be used to attack battleships and cargo ships, for assaults and other tasks.
