Russians to Buy Amphibious Assault Ships subject logo: WarPr0n
Posted by: badanov

This is a big deal. Russians currently have no, as in zero, amphibious assault capability. Two to three of these in the Caspian Sea would give them transport they desperately need in that theater.

The story said some Russians believe this is a bad deal, while others said the Russians just want access to western technology.

If this deal, the licensing, goes through, this will mark a huge change in Russian naval/marine doctrine. I doubt this means it will change their littoral naval doctrine much, but it can give them capability where little before existed.

If you have something to add, Fire Away!
