Communication vessel "Ivan Khurs" is preparing for sea trials

As stated at the "Northern Shipyard", the technical readiness of the vessel is 99%. Now it ends work on the schedule of mooring trials. In particular, the engines, diesel generators and steering wheels are tested in operating modes. Builders perform degaussing ship hull.

The transfer team is preparing for an early exit to the sea trials. Now the team continues to study systems and equipment, participates in exercises for survivability, evacuation from the ship and other stages of preparation for ship control.

The communications vessel has significantly improved the efficiency and operational characteristics of ship power, and extensive automation of control of technical means and weapons has been introduced. "Ivan Khurs" has excellent seaworthiness. The flagship of this series, "Yuri Ivanov", was transferred to the customer in 2014.

      Why do floating helicopters have to fly? Squadrons and military bases freeze and behave quietly in the presence of just such ships, and not warships and the formation of a potential enemy.

        In principle, the thing is not out of place: raise the antennas higher, or look around the horizon - where it runs object of work. smile

        A 1826-mm six-barrel automatic installation, plus MANPADS, in my opinion, a couple of cliffs and a grenade launcher was put on project 30. In principle, it’s enough to fend off vagrants, and for a serious battle, not the type of ship.
