In Rybinsk launched the third anti-sabotage boat Grachonok of the 21980 project

21980 anti-sabotage boats being built for the Navy as part of the shipbuilding program and entering the fleets are an essential element in the activities that are carried out by the Navy Main Command to create an integrated system of basing ships and submarines at their points of deployment. This base system must be reliably protected. The function of such protection can effectively perform counter-sabotage boats such as "Rook". They are entrusted with the responsible tasks of the anti-sabotage service in the points of deployment of fleet forces, in the waters adjacent to the basing points and in certain sea areas. Along with the construction of ships in the far sea zone, the Main Command of the Navy will continue to pay attention to the development of ships and boats that ensure the safety of the coastal waters in the operational fleet areas
- said Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Navy for armaments, Vice Admiral Viktor Bursuk.

The onboard armament of the “Rook” anti-sabotage boat includes: MTPU machine gun of 14,5 mm caliber, DP-64 anti-sabotage grenade launchers, DP-65A, Igla-1 portable anti-aircraft missile system.
The displacement of the boat is more than 138 tons, 31 length, meter, Width, more than 7 meters Maximum speed, 23 knot, Navigation distance, economic speed, more than 200 miles.

Earlier, in January, in the main closure of the submarine forces of the Northern Fleet, in ZATO Gadzhievo, the Navy flag was raised on two new anti-diversion boats of the 21980 Rook project built at Vympel JSC

      But some ki in Severomorsk set fire to the stern of the TKA-12 monument a week ago (maybe not in the subject, but on the eve of the Victory Day?).
      I, Not a liberal and not a democrat and not a judge of course, but the proposal is asymmetric, to find zaats, throw into the water from the pier and let them swim 14 meters to the shore. In water that has T_-3 Celsius.
      I personally knew A.I.Shabalin, the carp was the truth, but I still communicate with relatives.
      it is not His boat, but somehow foul on the soul.

      Million Dollar Question! - as the Yankees like to say.
      I got a strong impression that some ORNITOLOGISTS, and not sailors, made a nest in the management of shipbuilding!
      Damn, * feathered * they couldn’t even name the PEPO boat in a marine way, well, at least * skuas *, * water cutter *, * cormorant * finally ... They were born in boots, in boots and others they are forced to walk ... miserable! am

    Purely hypothetically: the "yaps" sent saboteurs to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, and they are "met" by such a cute "rookie". After the volley, the "non-strands" of those who want to skoda are reduced significantly.
