The Ivan Gren class, or Project 11711, is a class of landing ship that is being constructed for the Russian Navy.

The first ship is being built in Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad. The vessel will have a displacement of 5,000–6,000 tons and will be able to carry up to 13 main battle tanks or 36 armoured personnel carriers and 300 marines.[3] The first ship in the class was laid down on 23 December 2004.
