The Ivan Rogov class, Soviet designation Project 1174 Nosorog (Rhino), is a class of landing ships (large landing ship in Soviet classification) built in the Soviet Union. The ships were built as a part of expansion of the Soviet Navy's amphibious warfare capabilities in the 1970s.

Project 1174 has both bow ramp and well deck; it may operate as either a LST or as a LPD. A typical load is one battalion of 520 marines and 25 tanks. Up to 53 tanks or 80 armoured personnel carriers may be carried if the well deck is used for ground vehicle parking. In total, 2,500 tons of cargo may be carried.


Mitrofan Moskalenko was decommissioned after the Russian Ministry of Defence determined modernization would be as costly as buying a new ship.[1][2]

Both Aleksandr Nikolayev and Mitrofan Moskalenko were put to the auction for scrapping in 2014.[3] In 2015, with the decision of the French government to not deliver two ordered Mistral-class amphibious assault ships for the Russian Navy, it was considered to temporarily replace the Mistrals with the last two Project 1174 ships that are still in reserve.[4][5]

On May 27, 2019 the Mitrofan Moskalenko caught fire at the shipyard in the port of Severomorsk.[6]
