Bookmark BDK "Ivan Gren" was made at the Kaliningrad plant "Yantar" in December 2004 year. Perhaps the main distinguishing principle of the BDK "Ivan Gren" is the possibility of the so-called non-contact landing of troops on an unequipped coast. This feature complements the function of launching and returning infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers along the bow during sea agitation up to 3 points.
