General Director of "Yantar": New BDK project 11711 received an increased displacement

The second pair of Project 11711 BDK, which is being built at the Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad, will have a larger displacement and landing capacity. This was stated by the general director of Yantar Ilya Samarin.


The second pair of the large landing craft "Vladimir Andreev" and "Vasily Trushin" was laid down on the "Yantar" according to the modernized project 11711. Compared to the first ships of the project, the new large landing ships have an approximately 40% increased displacement, which in turn implies a greater landing capacity of these ships ... The transfer to the Navy is scheduled for 2023-2024.

The third and fourth ships of this project are now under construction, the deadline is 2023-2024

- leads "RIA News" Samarin's words

He explained that in the course of changing the project, the displacement of the new large landing ships was increased by 30-40%, they have a slightly different layout and superstructure, a larger helicopter deck, there are two hangars for the simultaneous basing of two helicopters. He did not give other details of the modernized project 11711.

Currently, the Russian Navy has two Project 11711 BDKs - the head Ivan Gren and the first serial Pyotr Morgunov. Both ships became part of the Northern fleet... They have a displacement of 5 thousand tons and a landing capacity of 13 tanks or 300 marines.

Earlier it was reported that the third and fourth large landing ships will have a displacement of 6-7 thousand tons.

          Helicopters can fly where there is no normal air defense. And if the defense is normal, then the ships will not even approach the coast.

                    And where does Russia?
                    For our country, landing operations from the sea are not so relevant and will not be decisive in a hypothetical military conflict.
                    This is possible only on the Far Eastern borders (Kuriles / Kamchatka). And impenetrable air defense does not exist ...

                UDC is, in fact, a huge floating barracks (high-tech) with aircraft reinforcement. The UDC should not break through anywhere, this is not a battleship. Its task is to land a marine battalion as quickly and efficiently as possible. All.

    A couple of fighters will come from the shore, knock down the turntables with distant missiles, and then they will deal with that small fry that floats on the water. Whether it is the case when a huge fool rested right on the shore, covering his landing with artillery, and unloading the equipment along the ramp immediately into its native element (on the ground), moreover, one that was not able to swim from birth (for example, tanks)

          Two helicopters in the hangar, 2 helicopters on the take-off sites. Total: 4.

          It is a crime to keep helicopters when crossing open helipads!

          Well, then the cruiser Moscow also carries 2 helicopters and a corvette 20380, and even a patrol ship 22160. Only this is not. How many places in the hangar - so many permanent bases. Gren 1, new Gren 2. Overload, sea transport of helicopters, shuttle - this is a different story, again, if it squeezes, the same frigate 11356 can drag the Mi-8/24/35 to Syria / Libya / Sudan on itself.

    And there are only two helicopters. Nedoudk

    Last year, two UDCs of project 2 of the "Ivan Rogov" type were laid down in Kerch, with a displacement of up to 23900 tons and up to 40000 helicopters each.

    BDK in 5000-7000t. Are you seriously? For the entire fleet 2 BDK? What are 13 tanks or (OR) 300 Marines for? As a familiar marine from the Pacific Fleet said, "suicide bombers". When was the combat landing operation carried out after the Second World War?

      At least the operation to force Georgia to peace in 2008. BDK marines were disembarking.
      Korean War, Bay of Pigs Landing, Vietnam War, Falklands War, Desert Storm. Landing operations were carried out everywhere.

        This is not disembarkation, but unloading - even a cruise liner could handle it.

      But this does not mean that they cannot happen. The marines are not suicide bombers, but the first line. Someone must be there. The approximate survival time of a tank crew is 5 minutes, does this mean tanks do not need to be built?

      300 Marines - they don't move on foot. And the reinforced battalion is not only tanks and armored personnel carriers, but also MLRS, air defense, engineers, chemists, self-propelled guns, if necessary, and other equipment.
      And without support from sea and air, such operations are not carried out.
      And the landing of the MP is just the first line for the landing and breakthrough, other troops must go further.

    I bring to your attention that 4 helicopters will be based on the large landing craft, and what you saw on the deck of 2 pieces means only that only 2 can take off from it at the same time.

    So they have to go to the Pacific Fleet. Do you not know? For the rotation of troops in the Kuril Islands just right. In Kerch, others will do, closer to the Mistral project

    I won’t get it: the displacement increased by 40%. Okay. The layout has changed. Okay. Have the engines remained the same? Does that mean you had to sacrifice speed and range?

      If the displacement has increased, it means that the volume of double-bottom tanks has increased, the fuel reserve for any one has increased. Without tanks, there is no double-bottom sea-going ships. And about engines, there is not a word in the article.

    Two oddities. The project is actually different, but the number is the same. Is there really not enough numbers? And the second - for disembarking directly on the coast is too big. Too little for power projection. Again the path of compromises.

    So who ordered the Mistral for us? The State Department? Our dear ones, and if they gave it away now, they would tell us fascinatingly about the new ships.
    And yet, I am not a sailor, but in my opinion such ships do not sail alone in the sea. Where is the squadron? "Rooks" are not enough. crying hi hi hi

    In everyday life, I clarified on these projects). There are no water tanks in the cabins !!! Those who served in the navy know that there are 10 liter tanks in the cabins, for washing, etc., etc. Ie. I collected water in the supply tank and use it (water is supplied to the sea on a schedule three times a day for 10-15 minutes). And here they are not !!! And the water is also in the sea on schedule !!! During my visits, I was on NATO ships, after which I was very disappointed in the organization of life with us (elementary things) !! (((

    Project 11711, on the drawing board, is more than 20 years old. The capabilities of shipbuilding have increased (yes, it is desirable and faster, and more, would be), and the requirements of the Navy - accordingly. And both new large landing ships are for the Pacific Fleet. The BDK is not the fastest-changing category, however, keeping in mind the age of the drawing board project and taking into account the operational specifics of the Pacific Fleet, the development of the project is logical.
    ######################
    New 11711: 7000 - 8000 t standard. According to plans 04/2019 and repetition 02/2021 - in service 2023, 2024. Both - Pacific Fleet. The timing is aggressive, and it seems that it has not shifted to the right in 2 years. Considering the experience with Morgunov, 2023 is doubtful.
    ######################
    11711: 5000 t standard. “Ivan Gren” was founded in 2004, entered service in 2018. “Petr Morgunov” was laid down in 2015, entered service in 2020. Both are SF.
    ######################
    For reference, Soviet BDK 775: 3450 t. Standard. 28 entered service 1975 - 1991. 3 of them under the project 775 / M (weapon modification). All 4 fleets. Built in Poland. Currently 15 in service, 1 in storage.

    Strange! Such a person does not operate with exact numbers! 30-40% - this is some kind of nonsense for people who "hawala"! Knowing our construction speeds, it is highly doubtful that this miracle will be delivered on time !!! Again, the timing will shift to the right !!! China offered to build, for example, frigates .... Why not! He bakes them like pies! Armament was put on its former !!! Russia is not in time! War is coming, but nothing in the army, practically NO! Some cartoons, which they hope to Intimidate the West! ! In the Russian Federation - nuclear ammunition is in special warehouses! Imagine - the first and disarming blow has been inflicted on you! Who, on what and the keak will go to these Special depots !!! It's just ridiculous and painful! Again, 1941 is planned !!! Only Russia after Such a blow will not rise! These are not spillikins and No one is going to joke! A multi-walker does not understand this? Or all his activities are to divert the eyes !!! Russia is being prepared for TOTAL DESTRUCTION !!!!
