Russia's Caspian Flotilla to Get New Assault Ships

The Russian Caspian Flotilla will get new missile ships and assault ships this year, a military spokesman said Saturday.
The flotilla's naval infantry will get two small-sized missile ships by summer and three amphibious assault ships by spring, said the spokesperson with the south military district.
The Caspian Flotilla will also get two service ships later this year, the spokesman said in a statement.
Currently, Russia's navy is composed of the Pacific Fleet, Northern Fleet, Baltic Fleet, Black Sea Fleet and Caspian Flotilla. Stationed in the Caspian Sea, the Caspian Flotilla is the oldest Russian military flotilla.
The navy will receive more than 50 new warships by 2016, including 18 surface warships, 30 special-purpose and counter-subversion vessels, and six multi-purpose strategic submarines, according to a
statement made earlier this week by the Defense Ministry.
