It is 120 meters long and can transport at least 13 heavy tanks, as well as two helicopters and a battalion of special assault forces (300 men) with full equipment: here is the new landing ship Pyotr Morgunov that Russia is replacing in the Black Sea. Novocherkassk was grounded on the night of December 26 due to a Ukrainian raid in the port of Feodosia, on the eastern coast of Crimea.

The new ship, Pyotr Morgunov, of the Ivan Green class, sailed from Novorossiysk, on the eastern coast of the Black Sea, and later arrived in the port of Sevastopol, the most important base in Crimea, to confirm that Moscow's fleet was not retreating. Kiev accepted the trick.

The ship entered service on December 23, 2020 and until recently was deployed on the outskirts of the Black Sea areas most involved in the invasion of Ukraine. It has a crew of about a hundred sailors, has a payload of 6,600 tons, and can park 13 tanks or 36 infrared combat vehicles, which are armored vehicles for transporting infantry, in its hold. It uses two 30 mm AK-630M-2 cannons and two AK-630 cannons of the same caliber to defend itself. For reconnaissance and transport of troops, two Ka-29 helicopters and two Orlan-10 drones are used.

However, Western analysts believe that the deployment of the new landing ship is not enough to relaunch the Russian offensive on the Black Sea side. Ukraine's resounding success in the cruise missile attack on Novocherkassk, the most imposing, although older, does not allow it to act. Russian admirals and even lesser crews are sleeping peacefully.
