The Pacific Fleet received two Project 23040 search and rescue boats

The Pacific Fleet was replenished with two Project 23040 search and rescue boats at once. According to the Ministry of Defense, state tests of the RVK-1324 Alexander Sheremet and RVK-1264 raid boats were completed in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky on Friday.

It is reported that an act of state acceptance has already been signed, and a ceremony will soon take place for the acceptance of boats into the squad of rescue ships of troops and forces in northeastern Russia. The boats were delivered to Kamchatka in August of this year by the Northern Sea Route and, after deactivation, they began to undergo state tests.

According to the test results, an act of state acceptance was signed. The boats meet all the requirements for search and rescue ships of the Naval fleet (Navy)

- said in a statement.

The total displacement of the boats of the project 23040 is about 118 tons, the hull length is 28,09 meters, the width is 5,56 meters, the draft is 1,5 meters. The speed is about 13,7 knots. The crew is three people, as well as a diving group of five people. They have a high power-to-weight ratio and ice class, which allows them to work confidently on external roads and outside them at a distance of up to 50 miles from their bases. The boat is a further development of the A160 project series, as well as the ZT28D Pelican diving boat.

Diving boats of project 23040 are capable of diving operations at depths of up to 60 meters with sea waves of up to 3 points, as well as prospecting operations using a small-sized remote-controlled unmanned underwater vehicle and a towed sonar.

In addition, 23040 boats can effectively extinguish fires on ships and ships, floating and coastal facilities up to 30 meters, pump out water from an emergency ship and provide power to the ship or ship de-energized as a result of the accident.

      Alas! Without AUXILIARY FORCES - modern The fleet is nothing more than a "group (squadron) of warships"! Moreover without any Support! request
      PS Well needed! Badly needed (!) these "kids" for us! Their "predecessors" - for the most part, "left" their resource! It is necessary "something think!"

        Yes, it's A160! Thanks.
        My heart told me correctly.
        Only I took part in a small diver. They put a manipulator at the stern.

    A good raid boat with the ability to go to the outer roads. But, again, they saved on the staffing of the crew - the economy is bad. Crew of 3 people plus 5 seconded (no one knows where) divers. All, presumably, from among the civilian personnel. What about tasks? The captain will have to, violating the Labor Code, schedule divers to service a towed side-looking sonar, a remotely controlled unmanned underwater vehicle, to supply hose lines when extinguishing fires, to deploy drainage systems and much, much more. Who will be in charge of the galley? How to work around the clock? It should be borne in mind that civilian divers in the Navy are an endangered species. It is very difficult to find a specialist for such a salary. The designer and the shipbuilders worked, they made not a bad boat! But these cadre managers took a good job and did it.
