    Vyborg shipyard will build Project 23550 icebreaking border patrol ship

    https://bmpd.livejournal.com/3915641.html

    According to the newspaper Kommersant, in the material of Yana Wojciechowska and Anastasia Vedeneeva Vyborg Shipyard will be engaged in a military order. The shipyard can build a patrol icebreaker for the FSB ”, the Vyborg Shipyard (VSZ), part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC), is preparing to sign a contract for the construction of a patrol icebreaker for the FSB in March for 18 billion rubles. Two ships for the Navy, under a similar project 23550, are now building the Admiralty Shipyards. For the shipyard, which is engaged in civil shipbuilding, this is the first military order, and its availability, according to Kommersant’s interlocutors, will help the enterprise in obtaining state support....

    This could be Vyborg's entry ticket into Naval shipbuilding plus it's great news for Coast Guard thumbsup

    Interesting choice of name Purga. Smaller border guard icebreaker patrol ship 22120 class also is called Purga. There will be quite a lot of mixing between the ships. Any info when will be the second one laid down? It should be in this month as well.

    Those smaller ships are called Purga-class but none are named Purga (Blizzard)

    These icebreakers are called Papanin-class so there should be no confusion
