The boat of the 21980 “Rook” project was developed by the Nizhny Novgorod Design Bureau Vympel. They are engaged in the construction of the Shipyard "Vympel" in Rybinsk (Yaroslavl region).

According to the manufacturer, the boats are “designed to fulfill the tasks of protecting water areas, and combat sabotage forces and facilities in the water areas of bases and near approaches to them.” They are equipped with large-caliber machine guns, anti-sabotage grenade launchers and portable air defense systems.

The electronic and hydroacoustic armament of the boat allows searching for underwater objects, including small-sized and subtle, such as combat swimmers.

    I hope for the new year, we’ll have time to get the Rowing Sam-1 anti-terror raft .. to create a connection from such boats and rafts. I’m ready to give my Progress-4, only it needs to be painted.
