    Nice looking vessel but no hangar facilities for the helicopter landing spot on the bow?

    I wonder if they will use Ka-32 based helos or another type like the Ka-60 or Ka-226T or even UAV helos...

    The up-to-date search-and-rescue ship Igor Belousov built at the Admiralteyskie Verfi shipyard in Saint Petersburg was officially handed over to the Russian Navy on Friday, December 25.

    The ship joined the 79th Unit of the Pacific Fleet’s Emergency Response and Rescue Force based in Vladivostok. The ship will be deployed to the Pacific Fleet in spring.

    The rescuer’s cost amounted to 10 bln roubles, said Viktor Bursuk, Navy Deputy Commander-in-Chief for Armament at the handover ceremony. He announced a four-ship series of this project. It is planned to lay the keel of the next ship in 2017, after gaining of practical experience on the Igor Belousov.

    The ship is designed for rescue of wrecked submarine crews. She is equipped with the GVK-450 deep-sea diving system developed by the Russian company Tetis Pro in cooperation with Divex, Scotland.

    The deep-sea rescue system provides operation of 12 divers by 3-men shifts at depths down to 450 meters, six hours per day during three weeks with the further one-time decompression, and for rehabilitation of submariners either escaped from wrecked submarines by the onboard rescue system Bester or left her independently (in a surfacing cabin or by free ascent).

    As a reminder, the Russian nuclear-powered submarine Kursk sank on August 12, 2000 in the Barents Sea at the depth of 108 meters. Rescue facilities available to the Russian Navy at that time failed to rescue the submariners.

In addition, the device can be used to install sonar markers and lifting of items seized manipulator", - the press service of the defense Ministry.

    "Marlin 350" is equipped with six thrusters, four horizontal and located at the vector diagram. Thanks to the original technical solution of control system construction, and the use of modern element base, the unit is easy to move under water. It can also rotate on one spot and quickly pull back.

    The question of the construction of the Voyevoda support vessel of project 23700

    According to the St. Petersburg publication of the newspaper Kommersant in an article by Herman Kostrinsky, "USC cuts the Voyevoda." The hull of the ship can partially build St. Petersburg shipyards, "part of the hull work on the Voyevoda ship of Project 23700 The United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) may entrust St. Petersburg enterprises - Northern shipyard and Baltic plant. The reason, according to the representatives of the corporation, lies in the high loading of the hull production of the Kaliningrad "Yantar", which builds this vessel at the request of the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The construction order is placed by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, but neither the price of the contract nor the operator of the ship is known. The interlocutors of Kommersant hint at his "special" purpose.

    According to Kommersant's information, part of the corps of the auxiliary vessel Voyevoda of project 23700 can be built in St. Petersburg. Today, at the Yantar plant, which fulfills the order of the Ministry of Industry and Trade for the construction of a product, consider the option that part of the hull works will be transferred to the Baltic plant and the Northern shipyard. After the construction of the hull will be transferred to Kaliningrad on floating pontoons, the interlocutor of "Kommersant" told.

    As Kommersant was told at the Yantar factory, a concrete decision on this issue has not yet been made: a variant with the construction of a part of the hull at the St. Petersburg shipyards is being considered among others. The reason why part of the hull work can be transferred to the Baltic plant and the Northern shipyard was the high loading of the hull production of "Yantar". Today, the Kaliningrad plant forms the hulls of three SK-3101R trawlers (built for the Kamchatka Fishing Collective Farm named after Lenin), the oceanographic research vessel Almaz (built for the Main Directorate of Deepwater Research of the Ministry of Defense - GIHI). At the stage of saturation of the hull is the second large amphibious ship Project 11711 "Peter Morgunov" (built for the Navy).

    The USC also confirmed the information. "Currently, USC is implementing a" distributed shipyard "project involving almost all shipbuilding plants in the western region.As for the project vessel 23700, the involvement of PJSC SZ" Severnaya Verf "and LLC" Baltiysky Zavod - Shipbuilding "is associated exclusively with the loading of production capacities of the Yantar plant, "the corporation said.

    The manufacture of parts of the sections of the corps "Voevody" in St. Petersburg and their subsequent delivery to Kaliningrad are planned by the corporation for the second quarter of 2018. Petersburg factories will perform only hull work: saturation of sections with equipment will remain for "Yantar". "Other shipbuilding plants entering the perimeter of USC, it is not planned to attract work to this ship," the corporation said.

    Kommersant's interlocutors in the shipbuilding industry note that cooperation in assembling ships and ships is used all over the world. So, in the UK three shipyards participated in the construction of the aircraft carrier. In Russia, such examples also exist: the Baltic plant several years ago assembled half of the Mistral corps before it was sent to France. In addition, the argument for placing the hull parts at the Baltic Shipyard and the Northern Shipyard is the weak loading of the hull production at these St. Petersburg shipyards.

    The auxiliary vessel Voevoda was laid in Kaliningrad in the spring of 2017. Even then the interlocutors of Kommersant expressed doubt that the ship would be emergency and rescue, as they say at Yantar. Assumptions ranged from a "special dual-purpose ship" to "a yacht for VIPs" (see "Kommersant" dated 11.04.2017).

    the Kommuna believed to be the oldest ship still in military service. originally a salvage ship and technically it can still do the job but its mostly used for carrying a submersible rescue sub. it started off life in russian imperial navy, then soviet and currently in service with Russian navy.
    info as follows:
    Laid down:12 November 1912
    Launched: 17 November 1913
    Commissioned: 14 July 1915

    currently based in sevastopol the last time i was there i was hoping to see it but i was speaking to a local man who knew about the ship said it had left the dock a couple of days ago. I was reading an article and they were interviewing the captain of the ship which was going through a refit/upgrade and the reporter asked him why Russia was still using such an old ship, to which he replied its simple really its still has a use, and whats the point in designing and building another ship and spending millions of dollars when this does the job you want it to do. I say hats off to Russian engineering. cheers Very Happy

    yes odd indeed, and and looking at it its quite hard to believe its over 100 years old. (107/106/104yrs this year depending what date you go by)

    interesting history though. it survived both world wars, its been looted, continued to operate despite damaged by bombs during siege of leningrad, its lifted subs, boats, aircraft, tanks, vehicles, and even raised a british sub which sat at the bottom of the sea for 9 years, it was later used by the soviets  after 3 years of repairs/testing it was used in soviet service for 22yrs loooool. cheers  its even serviced british E and C type subs. its still takes part in exercises.

    do you have a link to this information?

    i have only read that it suffered light damage in the siege of leningrad but continued to operate. havent seen anything to state that its been sunk once or twice. The old guy i was talking to in sevastopol a few years knew a lot about the ship he was ex-soviet navy but worked on a sub. I asked him had it ever crashed, sunk or major damage in its life he replied no.  but he seemed to know a lot and had friends who served on it. he called it the unsung hero of the russian/soviet navy due to length of service, he said that the ship deserves to have a yearly celebration nd he hopes when it does finally retire that it isnt scrapped that its preserved somewhere, he was in his late 60's i still have his e-mail address he's called yuriy mishin

    Yep extremely odd ship, variously rumored to be a modern Ship of Theseus; basically a big chunk of floating rust & patches on patches on patches, or made out of some accidental super-alloy with another hundred years in it depending on who you believe.

    I like that they keep it around, since 2016 is equipped with an '80s (but upgraded in '09) Priz class mini-sub & Panther Plus ROV.
    From recollection has no decompression chamber though.
