In the nearest two years, Caspian Flotilla (CF) will receive three Project 11770 Serna landing boats; that will considerably improve landing capability of the flotilla, reported RIA Novosti referring to a spokesman for the Russian Navy.
Besides, construction of landing ship Ivan Gren
is going on at Yantar
shipyard in Kaliningrad for Russian Navy.
That large-size landing ship was laid down in Dec 2004, but construction went slowly due to non-systematic financing and lack of professional staff. The ship was put afloat on May 18, 2012 and is to be handed over to defense ministry in 2013, reports RIA Novosti
