The construction of the ship was carried out with delays, since it was necessary to correct the mistakes made in the design of the lead ship.
BDK 11711 is able to accommodate 13 tanks or more than 30 armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles. The ship also provides for the deployment of a reinforced battalion of the Marine Corps, as well as the temporary basing of various types of ship helicopters. The ship has a cruising range of 4 thousand nautical miles, which allows you to perform tasks in the far sea zone.
