Admiral Flota Sovetskogo Soyuza Gorshkov (Russian: Адмира́л фло́та Сове́тского Сою́за Горшко́в) is a frigate of the Russian Navy and the lead ship of the Admiral Gorshkov class. She was laid down in 2006, launched in October 2010, and is set to start mooring trials in May 2012. The ship was expected to join the Russian Navy in 2013. However, she was then expected to be commissioned in November 2015 due to delays during construction and outfitting. The ship remained in a quay for a full year in an almost completed state due to an engine fire requiring a replacement of one of the gas turbines and also awaiting the delivery of the main gun. The ship will be the largest warship to join the Russian navy in over a decade and is named after Sergey Gorshkov.
