The large landing ship of the ocean zone of the 775 project is designed for transportation and disembarkation on both equipped and unequipped coast with a small slope of the bottom of the landing force forces with military equipment. The ships were laid and built at the shipyard "Stocznia Polnocna" in Gdansk (Poland) in the period from 1974 to 1985 years. Total built 17 ships of this project.

Large landing ships of project 775 (Ropucha I according to NATO classification) - a series of Soviet BDKs. Designed for landing amphibious assault on the unequipped coast and the transfer of troops and cargo by sea. Able to transport various types of armored vehicles, including tanks. The ships of the series are the basis of the Russian landing fleet. The project 775 landing craft was to be replaced by a series of ships of the new project 778. After the collapse of the USSR, in 1992 both unfinished ships were cut into slipways.

    What is all old. Everything is beautifully painted from far away, and in the vicinity you can see more than a dozen layers painted on rust.

    Living in Baltiysk, he always looked with pride at the 775 project passing by the BDK, IMHO one of the best projects.
    There is "Kaliningrad" or "Korolev" - beautiful, powerful smokes into Syria, the Atlantic or the North Seas, and you know, they will cancel all weekends and layoffs from the enemy for the coming days, a trifle, but nice wink
    and the article is oily, and the photos are mediocre,

    The main means of delivery of goods to Syria. goodOne thing is bad, in the near approximation there is no replacement for them. Poor Gren is still tortured and will not surrender, not to mention the series.

      That's it. On more often specialists would be delivered there and equipment. It’s interesting, do we have such vessels on conservation? I think they are vital.

    And a few more interesting facts about pr755.
    Pr755 transferred to Yemen was converted into a cargo ship.
    Ukrainian pr755 "Kostyantin Olshansky" - one of the most popular in the Naval Forces of Ukraine, went to the United States and Libya (during the war).

    Not only from the Poles, but also from the Germans. Those built the IPC. Small anti-submarine. And Grena, as an amphibious assault, is most likely not to be used at all. Most likely, as weapons transport. From the idea of ​​building a pontoon bridge between the ship and the coastline for landing (as provided for Gren), probably even the UDC laughed with all their holds!

    Oh and bloopers heaped up in the article lol
    "Ocean Zone ..." - no comment. When we didn’t repeat the fate of the ferry "Estonia" at that time, the fate of the ferry "Estonia" a little bit, all the GKPs across the ocean zone rejoiced. laughing
    They were given the status of BDK in 1983, before that they were KFOR. I had the honor to go to all three Pacific Fleet more than once. What can I say: the project is not very bad if they are used according to the TTZ. For indoor marine pools - better and not necessary. Going to Kamchatka, a week on the roads and vice versa is already a search for habitat conditions and fresh water reserves. Problems with EC: the Poles made triple redundancy - remote control with GKP, a semiautomatic device with PEZH and manual emergency. Guess what remains of the job.
    The article is no plus or minus. Not enough data was taken. It was possible to take data, modifications and the fate of the ships from Apalkov, for example, and attach the photos used.
    Someone asked for conservation? Nope. all on nails.

    Yes, it’s very unfortunate that their projects for the Baltic have easily adapted to the World Cup. Now Indonesia is stubborn in high - it has all the corvettes (IPC 1331) fool

    Well, they didn’t give it, but they did it.
    If I remember correctly, these are 13 units of project 1331 (those same Germans). They call them "Brochim" type corvettes. Very good boats. They are in their own place and in the very place where they are needed.

    Ropucha (polsk.) Toad. They themselves are Toads! I do not like NADOVSKY chased.

    DCN engaged Stocznia Remontowa in Gdansk as a subcontractor for the construction and equipping of the central and rear sections for the French Mistral. Now, USC has moved them, distributing the order to the Baltic Plant.

    Yes, if the chief executive officer found such rust on our Azov, and the copper did not sparkle with gold, the whole team would be like cancer. I served at the Azov shipyard in 1981-1984, cleanliness and order were brought to absolutism. After each exit and shooting, everything was painted, cleaned, rubbed
