World Navies Today:

Russian General Support Auxiliaries


Revised 18 October 2001
Version 1.02
Compiled and Maintained by: Andrew Toppan
World Navies Today Main Page: http://www.hazegray.org/worldnav/
This list includes all general support auxiliaries: logistics, trials & experimental,
electronic surveillance, survey & research, and miscellaneous support ships over 500 tons
displacement.

Ships not yet commissioned, or in long-term overhaul/conversion, are listed in italics.


Navigation and surface-search radars are not listed. All classifications are purely
unofficial and are based on an attempt to use standard classifications throughout all
navies; they may or may not correspond to "official" designations.

State of the Russian Fleet: Due to continued political, economic and societal chaos in
Russia, the Fleet is in a badly deteriorated state. Even those ships that remain in
commission and theoretically operational are generally unable to deploy, due to lack of
trained crews and lack of funds to buy fuel and stores. In general maintenance is minimal
or nonexistent, and there are no funds to conduct much-needed overhauls, even for major
fleet units. Many ships have been abandoned when repairs or refits came due.

This list identifies those units believed to remain operational, but most of these units are
unable to deploy for the reasons cited above. Ships in refit are listed only when there is a
reasonable chance of them returning to service. Ships laid up pending refit generally are
listed, as they could return to service if funding became available.

Many ships, especially auxiliaries, have been operating in commercial or charter freight
or passenger service to raise operating funds. These are listed as active units, as they
could rapidly return to naval roles if required.

Fleets: The following abbreviations are used to indicate fleet assignements:


NOR: Northern Fleet, headquarters at Severomorsk.
PAC: Pacific Fleet, headquarters at Vladivostok.
BLK: Black Sea Fleet, headquarters at Sevastopol.
BALT: Baltic Sea Fleet, headquarters at Kaliningrad.
CASP: Caspian Flotilla.
RIV: Units assigned to service on inland rivers.
