The Admiral Grigorovich (Project 11356) frigate of the Black Sea Fleet is based on the Talwar-class frigate. 

The Admiral Grigorovich-class incorporates a stealthy hull design. The hull and superstructures were designed to have low radar, acoustic and infrared signatures.

The frigate features a flight deck at aft to carry a Ka-28 or a Ka-31 helicopter.

Admiral Grigorovich measures 124.8m in overall length and 15.2m in width, and can complement a crew of 220.

The frigate is armed with the Club-N anti-ship missile system. The missiles are launched by eight-cell 3S-14E under-deck launcher complemented by 3R-14N-11356 fire control system and 3C-25E acquisition radar.

India operates six Talwar-class frigates, which are the Project 11356 predecessors developed for exports. 

According to a deal signed at the Russia-India summit in Goa in October 2016, 2 frigates of the Admiral Grigorovich class will be exported to India and 2 more will be built in India for the Indian Navy.
