The Ivan Rogov, or Project 1174 class "large landing ships" are a class of amphibious transports used by the Russian Navy. Originally a class of three ships built during the cold war, only one, the Mitrofan Moskalenko, is still in service.
This ship can carry 2,500 tons of cargo, and the typical load would consist of one battalion of 520 marines and 25 tanks. If no landing craft are carried then the extra space in the docking bay allows for the transport of 53 tanks or 80 armoured personnel carriers.
Three ships were built:
