This craft was designed and built during the defence of Leningrad. Its original role was to transport supplies to the beseiged city across Ladoga lake, and take back wounded and evacuating civilians. Readily-available parts and simple construction techniques were used, making it quite a numerous vessel.

The Tender is powered by ZiS-5 truck engine and is armed with a 12.7mm DShK heavy machinegun. It's large enough that a deployed boat yard is required to field it.

Like all advanced water transports, the landing tender comes with a mix of infantry units: rifles, assults, DP's, scouts and even commisars. Some of the riflemen are elite sea troops with better aim and more health.
