    Sure, but except the high north there are a lot of choke points around the russian coasts. That´s why they are building subs as carriers. But some ships (Kovalew, Alexandrov, Elbrus) could also be used, just like any freighter with cranes. Like this one:



    You could fit quite a few Poseidons in there. And it would be a nightmare for the west to keep every "civilian" russian ship in sight.

    Actually I would think a roll on roll off type vessel would be much better suited to the role of carrying and releasing Poseidons... and during their down time they could be used for other roles....

    This is supposed to be the 2nd ship of the project laid down (russian-ships.info), chronologically, that is. I guess that the Volga shipyard in Nizhniy Novgorod is simply faster or less under pressure by other projects.

    Helicopters make most ships more capable and flexible.

    Nine new hydrographic vessels to be built for Russian Navy by 2021

    The Navy will get the first of them in 2019


    MOSCOW, January 2. /TASS/. Two small Project 19910 vessels, two large Project 23040G hydrographic boats, two newest large Project 19920 hydrographic boats and three large Project 23370G large hydrographic boats will be built for the Russian Navy before 2021, the Russian Defense Ministry’s press service said on Wednesday.

    "The construction of two small Project 19910 hydrographic vessels is currently underway," the ministry said, adding that they would become part of the Russian Navy in 2019 and 2020 respectively.

    In addition, the Nizhegorodsky Teplokhod shipyard is working on two large Project 23040G hydrographic boats. The shipyard earlier completed the construction of two similar vessels for the Baltic Fleet. The Navy will get the new ships in 2019.

    Meanwhile, two large Project 19920 hydrographic boats for the Northern and Pacific Fleets are now under construction. It is also planned to build three large Project 23370G hydrographic boats by 2021, the Defense Ministry said.

    Apparently there is an effort to try to standardise several Auxiliary types into a modular format using the same basic hull, different superstructures https://flotprom.ru/2019/%D0%9E%D1%81%D0%BA3/

    What do we have here?

    From left to right:
    - container ship/freighter
    - fleet oiler/replenishment ship
    - oceanographic survey or submarine rescue ship?
    - heavy-lift ship

    Seems to be an expansion of the Zvezdotchka/Akademik Kovalev line.

    Those helipads are perfect for the modular Tor that was tested on Grigorovitch.

    Why waste the helipad? Look at the foreship. Cool

    The helipad allows a 360° radar coverage.

    On the forship you can install a s-300V4 launcher with the radar on the same chassis Very Happy
