    A serious tug - ice class Arc 4 (independent sailing in continuous ice up to 0,6 m) and a rather powerful crane with heave compensation. The only thing that raises a question, looking at the size of the tug and its bow fenders, is how it can tilt other vessels to the berth ...

      What could be the problem? Normal fenders. Surely everything has been calculated and tested many times

        You don't quite understand. In the photo, the fenders are actually minimal. With such a size and mass of this tug, it will obviously leave damage to the turned vessel, simply smash its side. Even small harbor tugs, some not very successful Soviet-built projects, left dents on the turnable ships due to the not optimal shape of the bow and insufficient fender protection. The tug simply missed her. And here such mass and inertia, power is not even particularly important in this case.

          Well, then you need to disperse the designers and constructors. According to you, there are goofs in the KB.

      He can butt like a ram ..... push .... Tires from Belazovs in Kamchatka cannot be found ...... Fenders, unless ..... In the century past, transports from BMRT and BATMs were shielded by them ... ..

    It is very good that the glorious Yaroslavl Shipyard, which built 40 Project 745 sea tugs in Soviet times, took up the production of larger "real" sea tugs, project 23470. Under the USSR, tugs of this size, sea and ocean, were built in Finland.
    It is very gratifying that we have finally started ourselves. Long and successful tug service in the harsh conditions of Kamchatka!

      After all, some kind of icebreaker should carry it along the NSR, so why should the motor resource and fuel be spent on both ships?

    And it's good that we are learning to use our capabilities and advantages. As far as I understand, he got to the North using inland shipping routes, without access to the Atlantic.
    As noted, Andrey Stepanov crossed the Northern Sea Route in tow.
    The tug covered all the way in tow ... laughing

    From Yaroslavl - to Sevastopol. And from Sevastopol - to Kamchatka through the Northern Sea Route. Applauding standing! lol
    And in the Far East, such tugs cannot be made in any way ??? There, it seems, they used to make nuclear submarines ... Or is it such a special scheme of "getting Russia off its knees" ??? Wonderful miracles ... (and there is nothing more to say).
