The Admiral Sergei Gorshkov frigate will be floated out on Friday, a Russian Navy spokesman said.

"It is planned that the sea trials of the ship constructed using the latest methods in shipbuilding will begin in 2011," the spokesman said.

The warship is part of an upgrade program of Russia's Black Sea Fleet.

The Admiral Sergei Gorshkov class frigate is capable of carrying out long-range strikes, anti-submarine warfare and air defense missions in distant maritime zones.

The Russian Navy said earlier it plans to build 20-30 frigates of this class in the future to supplement all four of its fleets.
