Moscow, Feb.25 : Three Russian warships will be made for India by April 2012, top officials of the Yantar (Amber) Shipyard in Kaliningrad in Russia's Baltic enclave, have said.

The RIA Novosti news agency quoted project manager Viktor Bashanin as saying that the first warship's three-section hull would be completed this April and transferred to an open slipway in order to make room for the second frigate. The keel of the third frigate will be laid on May 27, 2008.

The workers believe that 27 is their lucky number because the shipyard laid the keel of the first frigate on July 27, 2007 and construction of the second warship began on November 27.
