    A little bit slow but good against backward enemies.

    Another proof IMO they need more landing ships. Helicopter carrier are good but they are not enough for landing operations.

    More Ivan Gren but also another 20 lighter landing ship to support them.

    They already propose a 1600t ship for export. They have plenty of shipyards that coukd build them. That's an easy job with no complicated systems.

    Add a Palma or pantsir CIWS and they could be used to protect bases or ships when they don't use it for landings. They can also carry a weapon container with redut missiles or kalibr and use the control of a nearby Gorshkov. It also has a pozitiv radar for radar coverage or adanced radar to detect missiles far away froma foration. Loosing one ship isn't a problem as it woud be empty.

    With 40 such ships they would be fine.

    It means ships with no Roll On Roll Off capacity can be used for landing vehicles... any flat decked ship with cranes could be used... they don't need to be specialist beaching vessels, which means cheaper simpler ships could be used that during peace time could be doing other more useful things.

    Another proof IMO they need more landing ships. Helicopter carrier are good but they are not enough for landing operations.

    With two 30K Helicopter landing ships on the way, and likely another two follow up vessels, together with upgraded and modified Ivan Gren ships I think they should be pretty fine.

    If ships with deck cranes can be used in support then they should be pretty much OK with the helicopter carriers and a few Grens for the four fleets.

    Would think they would have two new Ivan Rogovs at each main fleet... Northern and Pacific, as well as a few Grens at each, plus a couple of Grens in the Black Sea and Baltic Fleets...
