    To test the new Admiral Makarov frigate's Shtil-1 self-defense missile system, Russia's Baltic fleet ships performed firing exercises in the Baltic Sea, off the coast of Kaliningrad region.

    The Admiral Makarov frigate kicked off the final stage of its official tests on April 14. While missile boats simulated an attack on enemy ships, the Admiral Makarov frigate struck an aerial target. The Project 11356 (NATO reporting name: Admiral Grigorovich-class) Admiral Makarov frigate is the third vessel in its series. It was laid down by the Yantar Shipyard in Kaliningrad on February 29, 2012 and floated out on September 2, 2015. The first two Project 11356 frigates, Admiral Grigorovich, and Admiral Essen were handed over to the customer on March 11, 2016 and June 7, 2016, respectively.
