The Project 22350 frigate Admiral Gorshkov was laid down in early 2006 and put afloat in the autumn of 2010. The ship started undergoing trials in November 2014.
The second Project 22350 frigate Admiral Kasatonov was floated out in 2014.
The third frigate Admiral Golovko is expected to be put afloat in 2016.
