It's a cable laying vessel operated by the South Sea Fleet, and as far as we can tell, South Sea Fleet have at least 2 of such vessels.

Such vessel is used to lay submarine cables.

"too small". I'd say ships the size of 901 are the exception in terms of replenishment vessels around the world, rather than the norm.
By numbers the USN Supply-class AOE are of the comparable tonnage and dimension, so not "exception".

The average AOE class in most navies s in the 20-30k ton range. Only a handful of navies operate ships in the 45k ton class.

903/a sized ships are closer to the norm while 901 sized ships are the exception.
