The Russian Navy Zubr-class amphibious vehicle is designed to deliver amphibious assault units, including marines and tanks, to unequipped shores, as well as transport and plant naval mines.
The vehicle can carry three main battle tanks, or ten armored vehicles plus 140 troops on board. The 57-meter-long Mordovia has a standard full load displacement of 555 tons and moves at a speed of about 110 kilometers per hour.
Aside from firing on sea and air targets, the Baltic Sea drills saw the Mordovia sealifting BTR-82 armored personnel carriers and marines to a new beachhead. The vehicle is part of Russia's Baltic Fleet.
