Yantar is a special purpose intelligence ship operated by the Russian Navyís Main Directorate of Underwater Research since 2015. The vessel is homeported at Severomorsk, where it is attached to the Northern Fleet.

The ship is alleged to a spy ship but is designated as an oceanographic research ship by the Russian Navy. The U.S. Navy has stated that the submersibles are able to sever cables miles beneath the oceanís surface.

The Yantar was designed by the CMDB Almaz Design Bureau (design #22010), in St. Petersburg, and the hull was laid down on July 8, 2010. It was launched in December 2010, and concluded its sea trials in 2015. It was constructed at the Yantar Shipyard in Kaliningrad.

It has a length of 108 meters and a displacement of 5,320 tons. It uses diesel-electric propulsion for a top speed of approximately 15 knots. It officially has a crew of 50.
The Yantar can act as a mothership to mini-subs. The submersibles are reportedly a Konsul-class submersible and a pr.16810 Rus-class submersible. They are reportedly capable of operating at depths of up to 6,000 meters.
