The ships of the project “Buyan” are equipped with unique propulsion systems consisting of two water jets, they provide the ship with a small draft on the move.
Due to the small draft and high maneuverability, the ship is able to solve a wide range of tasks in shallow water in the coastal zone of the Caspian Sea, on the river and in the mouth, as well as in other “narrow” water areas.
The architectural appearance of the ship meets the requirements for reducing radar visibility, thanks to the use of "stealth technology."
