The Project 11356 escort ship (frigate) is designed to destroy enemy surface ships, submarines and air attack assets. It can operate autonomously, within task forces in maritime theatres of war, as an escort ship in convoys, etc.
- improved seaworthiness thanks to roll stabilisation (with UK6-1 roll stabiliser);
- reduced secondary radar, infrared and electromagnetic signatures due to special design and layout measures;
- low underwater noise and interference with the organic sonar system;
- operations in a wide range of climatic conditions.

Main propulsion plant
The frigate is powered by a two-shaft gas-turbine plant developing max power of 28,000 hp on each shaft at ambient temperature of +15°C. The power plant is managed by Burya-11356 control system.
Electric power is provided by four 800 kW WCM800/5-type diesel generators supplying three-phase AC/380V/50Hz under control of Angara-11356 system.
