"Don" Class Submarine Depot Ships

Units built: 7 ships from 1957 to 1962
Displacement: 9000 tons, full load
Length: 140 meters
Beam: 17,6 meters
Draught: 5,4 meters
Armament: 4 guns, 3,9' (100 mm.) in single mounts.
"Dmitry Galkin" has 8 - 25 mm guns in twin mounts.
Propulsion: 4 diesels, 2 shafts, 14.000 bhp., - 17 knots

I believe that this unit is the "Dmitry Galkin" because of the characteristic "Vee Cone" antenna on the aft mast, and also you can clearly see the 4 twin mount 25 mm guns.
The pictures are taken in the Bosporus Strait off Istanbul, Turkey,- on May 23,1980
