Project 1171 / Alligator Class

The Project 1171 Tapir Large Landing Ship (Bol'shoy Desatnyy Korabl' - BDK) is a beachable, general-purpose LST-type design with bow and stern ramps for unloading vehicles. Produced in at least four different types beginning in 1966, there are numerous variations in detail between units. Many have been retired, and remaining units may be in reserve, given the Russian Navy's decreased emphasis on amphibious operations.

Large Landing Ship "Saratov" was built by Yantar Zavod, Kaliningrad. Laid down 05 Feb 1964, completed 01 July 1964, commissioned on 18 Aug 1966.

From 05 Feb 1964 to 1992 this ship has name "Voronezhskyy Komsomoletc", in 1992 was renamed to "BDK-65", and from Aug 2000 to present moment - "Saratov".
