Russia’s United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) will build two or more Ivan Gren-class large amphibious assault ships for the Russian Navy.
"A decision has been made to finalize the Ivan Gren project. In particular, there will be changes in the hull. There are plans to build at least two or more ships under the improved project. However, there is no contract yet," TASS quoted Corporation CEO Alexei Rakhmanov as saying on Monday.
The Ivan Gren class or Project 11711 is a class of landing ship. It was laid down at the Yantar Shipyard in Kaliningrad in December 2004 and put afloat in May 2012. It was accepted for service in the Russian Navy on June 20, 2018.
The second ship of this Project, the Pyotr Morgunov, being built at the Yantar Shipyard on the Baltic coast, is due to enter trials no later than March 2019. In June next year, the warship is expected to start shipbuilders’ sea trials.
