The vessel of Pacific Fleet "Marshal Krylov" will be used for launching missiles from the "Vostochny"

The Marshal Krylov vessel of the measuring complex of the Pacific Fleet is on its way from Kamchatka to the port of Vladivostok for modernization in connection with its upcoming use during launches of carrier rockets from the Vostochny cosmodrome under construction, the head of the information support department of the press service of the Eastern Military District told RIA Novosti on Friday Roman Martov.

"Soon the ship will arrive at Dalzavod for repair and modernization. The enterprise has to carry out a large amount of work to improve the measuring complex of the spacecraft. This is due to its upcoming use when launching carrier rockets from the Vostochny cosmodrome," Martov said.

Martov also said that routine repairs are planned on the ship - replacement of household systems, galley equipment, navigational and radio equipment, modernization of communications, medium repair of main and auxiliary engines.

"The repair and modernization of the Marshal Krylov KIK will allow to extend not only the service life of the spacecraft, but also to use it even more intensively in order to ensure the country's military and space activities," Martov said.

The spacecraft of the Marshal Krylov measuring complex is the only ship in the Russian Navy that provides flight design tests and testing new models of rocket and space technology. Its tasks include maintaining communication with automatic stations and astronauts, orbital and telemetric measurements of space objects, participation in combat and experimental launches of spacecraft.
