The Russian Navy is expected to take delivery of the first Ivan Gren large amphibious assault ship of project 11711, in the second half of the year.

At present, the Ivan Gren amphibious assault ship is at the stage of trials at the Yantar Shipyard in Kaliningrad. The sea trials of the large amphibious ship Ivan Gren were suspended in late October 2016 over problems with its degaussing system and the warship had to return to the shipyard.

On 11 June 2015, shipbuilders laid the hull of the second ship of this project, the ‘Peter Morgunov’. The Kaliningrad shipbuilding factory Yantar plans to complete construction of the ship in 2017.

The Ivan Gren large amphibious assault ship of project 11711 is designated for landing operations on adversary-held territory, transportation of combat hardware and equipment. In peacetime the ship is engaged in humanitarian operations. The ro-ro construction allows the armor to move by the tank deck from bow to stern ramps.

The two-island ship has a hangar in the stern superstructure. It can accommodate one helicopter but due to the moving device which expands the length of the hangar it can house two helicopters. The hull and the superstructure are made of steel. The warship can carry 13 tanks and 36 armored personnel carriers. The marine strength is 300-380 men. Instead of the landing force the warship can carry 1500 tons of cargo.
