Cost of Project 11711 landing ship Ivan Gren built for Russian Navy by JSC Yantar Shipyard was RUR 5 bln, reports RBK referring to press service of Kaliningrad regional administration. The ship will be launched on May 18.

Along with Mistral-class amphibious ships being built in France, large landing ship Ivan Gren will form the core of Russian Navy's landing forces, reports the regional administration.

Large landing ship Ivan Gren was laid down at Yantar in Dec 2004 and was supposed to make the lead ship in the 4-ship series. Through the construction, the Navy three times changed technical specifications; 22 considerable changes were introduced into the project. That resulted in long delays in construction. Up to now, the ship's final technical appearance has not determined yet. Scheduled keel-laying of the first serial ship was canceled.

The ship is designed for landing operations, transportation of combat vehicles and equipment. Ivan Gren is capable to carry up to 13 main battle tanks, up to 36 armored personnel carriers or infantry fighting vehicles, or a 300-men boarding party.
