The basic project of the Russian frigate of project 11356 was based on the use of power plants from our SE Zorya – Mashproekt. When organizing its production of frigates of the 11356 Talwar project, India also decided to use power plants from Zorya – Mashproekt.

In May 2020, India ordered from our state-owned enterprise the supply of the M7N.1E propulsion system, consisting of two DS71 turbine turbines and two DT59 afterburner turbines, which will be installed on one of the future Talwar-type ships.

It is also obvious that these two M7H2 units will also be supplied for future Indian Talwar frigates.

According to Defense Express, more than 150 Zorya-Mashproekt gas turbine engines are currently being operated on Indian Navy ships.
