The boats were delivered to Kamchatka in August of this year by the Northern Sea Route and, after being deactivated, they began to undergo state tests, which were completed in the first decade of October. At the same time, an act of state acceptance of the RVK-1324 raid boats Alexander Sheremet and RVK-1264 was signed.

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, boats can effectively extinguish fires on ships and vessels, floating and onshore objects up to 30 meters high, pump water from an emergency ship and provide power to a ship or ship that is de-energized as a result of an accident.
