Russian Navy ship disabled while being in Syria, towed back to Black sea Naval base

Russian Navy Landing ship ORSK suffered engine (one of two) breakdown during her regular trip from Naval base Sevastopol, Black sea, to Syria, and had to be towed back to Sevastopol by Navy tug MB-304, passing Bosphorus on Jan 3. Turkish bloggers didn’t miss this transit and posted a lot of photos in social nets.


Russian Navy Landing ship ORSK, Project 1171 (Tapir), commissioned 1968, displacement 4650, capacity up to 1500 tons of cargo and vehicles, crew 55, Black Sea Russian Navy Fleet.
