One question, what was the rationale of a Tanker like this for the Navy. Supply between harbours? it seems too much able(read Oceanic) for that.
I really don't have accurate data ... To assume is, that the oiler is supposed to supply submarines in to the open sea ... and other ships as well ...
Perhaps for the case to increase the autonomy of the fleet in case of war ...
I suppose you don't know if they made any supplying training in open seas, maybe photos of Perun with fleet ?
