Seen at Kronstadt: The Project 852-class survey vessel Admiral Vladimirsky

The Russian Navy operates a number of survey vessels, including the six Project 852 survey vessels, one of which is the Admiral Vladimirsky.

Admiral Vladimirsky was built in Stettin, Poland, in 1975, and displaces 6,600 tons. She is one of the largest survey vessels operated by the Russian Navy, and is due to be replaced by a newly built ship in 2021.

Her five sister ships were:
  • Akademik Krylov (In service 1974 to 2004)
  • Leonid Sobolev (In service 1974 to 1996)
  • Ivan Kruzenshtern (In service 1975 to 1998)
  • Leonid Demin (In service 1978 to 2003)
  • Mikhail Krupsky (In service 1979 to 1995)
