Russian Navy To Get Reconnaissance Ship For Monitoring US Missile Defense Systems

Russia has planned to deliver Ivan Khurs communications ship to its navy in December 2016 to monitor US missile defense systems.

"The Ivan Khurs communications ship is planned to be launched in the second quarter of 2016… Shipbuilders intend to pass the communications ship to the Russian Navy in December 2016," a spokesperson of Severnaya Verf shipyard said Friday.

The Ivan Khurs would significantly outmatch its predecessors, RIA Novosti reported Friday.

The head of the Russian United Shipbuilding Corporation order department, Anatoly Shlemov had told in July that the Ivan Khurs will monitor US missile defense systems, among other tasks.

Russia-developed Project 18280 ships are designed to provide communications, support radio-electronic warfare, and carry out intelligence-gathering activities.
