The Project 1174 (Nosorog) class landing ship (NATO reporting name: Ivan Rogov) is a class of Soviet/Russian dock landing ships (Soviet classification: Large landing ship, Russian: БДК, большой десантный корабль). They were built as part of the 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. 2,500 tons of cargo may be carried.

Ships[edit]

Name Builders Laid down Launched Commissioned Status Notes
Ivan Rogov Yantar Shipyard, Kaliningrad September 1973 31 May 1977 15 June 1978 Decommissioned in 1996
Aleksandr Nikolayev Yantar Shipyard, Kaliningrad March 1976 1982 30 December 1982 In reserve since 1997
Mitrofan Moskalenko Yantar Shipyard, Kaliningrad May 1984 1988 23 September 1990 In reserve since 2002

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 considering to temporarily replace Mistrals with the last two ships of Project 1174, which are still in reserve.[4][5]
