Russian Navy to receive new reconnaissance vehicle on the Day of Navy


The Russian Navy’s first Project 18280 large reconnaissance ship Admiral Yury Ivanov will enter service on Navy Day which this year falls on July 26.

The Ship can keep snoop on enemy ships and aircraft and cripple their electronic warfare systems, Russian media reported today.

“The vessel is designed to provide communication and control of fleet forces, conduct electronic warfare, radio and electronic intelligence, tagging of surveillance components of the US missile defense system and naval SAM components,” Ria Novosti had quoted Anatoly Shlemov, the head of the Defense Procurement and Acquisition department of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, told RIA Novosti earlier this month.
