Thanks Allan for your help.

By Wikipedia you can find numbers 302/303/305 as Unnamed Polnocny A class utility landing craft.

By google books i have found this: "Naval Institute of Combat Fleets": 3 Soviets Polnocny-A-class Project 770 medium landing ships 301/303/305
And by World Navis today:
Polnocny A class utility landing craft

Displacement: 770 tons full load
Dimensions: 73 x 8.6 x 2 meters (239.5 x 28 x 6.5 feet)
Propulsion: 2 diesels, 2 shafts, 4,000 bhp, 19 knots
Crew: 40
Cargo: 180 tons
Armament: 1 dual 30 mm AA, 2 18-tube 140 mm rocket launchers
Polish-built, Soviet design. 301 may not be operational.

Number Name Year FLT Homeport Notes
301 -- 1974
303 -- 1974

So i have no name for this old vessel in the monet.
Regards from Switzerland

pressed wrong button, when are we going to be able to edit our comments ?

Anyway, if she is one of this 4, she dates from the mid-60's,probably 1966, and I have to say is looking very smart for her age. Perhaps she had been preserved.

Hi Andreas

Now back on main computer. The Polnocna's are perhaps the least well defined naval ships built in Poland for USSR. 3 Polnoncy A, type 770MA were transferred from USSR to Egypt in the early 70's. Your pic shows pennant number 303, so its probably fair to guess the others were 301 and 302. But as to the original markings, my researches have lead me to believe the three may be from the following...SDK-31, SDK-35, SDK-41 or SDK-42. If anyone who ever worked for Stocznia Północna in Gdańsk could come up with a definitive list for these vessel it would be most welcomed.
