        Project 03160 Raptor patrol boats - a series of fast coastal patrol boats. The project was developed at the Design Bureau of the Pella Leningrad Shipyard on the instructions of the Russian Navy. The construction of boats is carried out at the Pella shipyard in the city of Otradnoy in the Leningrad Region. Due to the great similarity in appearance, the project boats can be confused with other transport assault boats of the project 02510 type "BK-16", developed in the concern "Kalashnikov", and produced at the "Rybinsk shipyard". Both projects are based on CB90 speedboats.

          this is right when they honestly point to prototypes, and do not yell, this is ours, it does not have a similar world and other hell.

      Appearance does not mean anything. The layout and cutting are similar, but inside?

        understood, did, in principle the answer was in the title.
        Combat boat speed boat 90 (CB 90) was developed by Dockstavarvet to replace the obsolete boats of the Swedish Class 200 fleet. It is an export version of the Strp 90H, the official Swedish designation H means that the boat is capable of transporting and deploying up to half of the landing platoon fully equipped. The boat was adopted in 1991

      What is there to argue? Ours bought a license from the Swedes. Slightly altered their weapons. We had time before 2014. And now there would be no license.

      Are you talking about “Pella” with its 287 people of average size for 2016?
      But don’t forget that “Pella”, in addition to the “raptors,” is also building RTOs, as well as a civilian fleet - tugboats, fishing vessels. Only at pr.22800 the plant was given a contract for 7 units with the prospect of an increase.
