14,5 mm naval thumb machinegun designed to destroy air, coastal and surface targets. PU provides destruction of surface and coastal targets at ranges up to 2000 m at altitudes up to 1500 m. Cartridges with B-32 armor-piercing and incendiary bullet, BZT armor-piercing tracer and instant-action incendiary bullet of MDZ are used for shooting at surface, coastal and air targets.

The lead patrol boat of the 12200 project was built in 2006 (No. 200) in the city and put into trial operation for a year by the Border Guard Service of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation. According to the results of his tests, it was decided to launch the Sobol in a series of 30 units. In 2008, the first factory boat of this project was built - serial number 201. In 2009, 6 units were built - factory numbers 202-207. In 2010, the 2 boats of the 12200 project — 208 and 209 No. were launched, and the 3 boats, No. 210-212, were also laid. This is at the St. Petersburg "Almaz", in 2010, two more boats were supposed to be laid in the Vladivostok "Eastern Shipyard". The Black Sea Fleet received 5 units, the Baltic Fleet - one, for the Pacific Fleet build two boats.

Two boats were sold to Turkmenistan on the Caspian Sea.

In order to unify the "Sobol" in the future will replace boats of all projects of a similar class, which are in service with the border guards of the Russian Federation. For the Russian frontier guards, the Sobol is supplied in a version that has only a machine gun in service.

    Boat for the protection of Putin's dachas and palaces on the Black Sea. He can shoot fishing boats well. But the real missile and artillery boat Scorpio (project 12300) was ruined without releasing a single one!

      12300 and 12200 projects of different types of ships ... have you read the purpose of the Sobol in general? Try to stop a Japanese fast schooner with a Scorpion with a maximum speed of 38 knots.

    I support! However, judging by the political situation, there will be no interruptions in import purchases for the next 5-6 years.

    I'm somewhat confused by the outboard steering system. It may require regular qualified prevention, which is quite difficult to carry out in teams with a tense moral and psychological climate. koly

    Not happy with one thing - a whole bunch of foreign components.
    Is there a consistent serial boat, but purely Russian?
