The Orlyg Class Tender is designated to perform repairs and maintenance of the Royal Noryan Navy's shore and seagoing equipment. With a complete repair department onboard, the Orlyg can repair any surface ship that did not need a dry dock for hull repairs. A dive shop allows for underwater repairs to be made, however such repairs are limited. Outfitted with two stationary center-mast main cranes, the Orlyg Class can move heavy equipment to and from other ships or docks to be repaired and then reinstalled. Two smaller traveling cranes could move up and down each side of the aft portion of the ship's upper deck, which allow equipment to be moved virtually anywhere needed.
The tenders also have a full supply department that could provide any tended ships alongside with stores, such as food and drink, ammunition, fuel, water, and medical/dental services. The administration department could serve as a floating Personnel Support Detachment and a dispersing center for payroll. The ship's store also serves many personnel, both tended by and stationed aboard, with personal items such as grooming supplies, snack foods, tobacco products, books, uniform articles, and more.
