The Greek Navy operates four ships. Three vessels were commissioned in 2001: Kefallonia (L180) was purchased used from the Russian Navy but has been upgraded, Ithaki (L181) was completed in Ukraine, and Zakynthos (L183) was built in Russia. A fourth vessel, Kerkira, was launched in June 2004 at St Petersburg yard and was commissioned in January 2005.
Hovercraft, Transportation - Drydocks
The Russian designed Zubr or Project 1232.2 class (NATO reporting name Pomornik) is the world’s largest military hovercraft and serves as a Landing Craft air-cushion (or LCAC). Note that the Bora is bigger but has side walls so it is not considered a true hovercraft because some of the side structure is in the water.
Zubr is designed to sealift landing assault units (such as marines or tanks) from equipped/non-equipped vessels to non-equipped shore, as well as transport and plant mines.
