Hi Avod

Nice shot but I believe this is BDK-54 Azov. The pennent number on the side is NOT the BDK number. This has caused much confusion and it has made it virtually impossible to fully define the Ropucha class. Janes, for example have listed many more 'numbers' than were actually built. I believe 28 is the total number of the 3 variants, but if someone from Northern Shipyard could confirm this it would be great. !!!. As the Black Sea Fleet people confirm that BDK and pennant numbers are changed periodically, it is very dificult to keep track of these vessels.
