Today there was launched a domestic rocket artillery ship "Kazakhstan". This event is significant owing to the fact that this is the first ship built by a national company "Ural Plant "Zenith" and it enters the inventory of Kazakhstan’s Navy in the year of the 20th anniversary of Kazakhstan's army.
 First Kazakhstani ship
The event was held in a festive atmosphere. Deputy Minister of Defence of the Republic of Kazakhstan Sergei Gromov noted that nowadays the military-industrial complex was dynamically developing and launch of "Kazakhstan" ship proved that.

 Akim of the West-Kazakhstan oblast Nurlan Nogayev, the command staff of Kazakhstan’s Navy as well as veterans of the Armed Forces, representatives of local authorities, the staff of JSC "Ural Plant "Zenith" and personal crew of the new ship made a congratulatory speech. 

Rocket-artillery ship is designed to carry out combat missions in the Navy responsibility areas in the Caspian Sea to ensure the security of the state. Its full displacement is 250 tons. The ship is equipped with rocket and artillery weapons, modern communications and navigation. In the future, Kazakhstan's Navy will adopt in the inventory two more similar vessels.
In the current year it is planned to put into operation a training station for damage control, which will be launched in 2016. This is another domestic plant project for the Ministry of Defence.

At present time JSC "Ural Plant "Zenith" is a part of the military-industrial complex of the country.
