Russian Navy commissions two new “anti terror” boats

Russia’s Northern Sea fleet commissioned two new Project 21980 (Grachonok-class) anti-terror vessels at the submarine forces’ main base on January 14.

One of the vessels was named as Unarmeec Zapolyarya during the flag-raising ceremony.

The latest two are boats number eleven and twelve in a class of vessels designed to perform water protection and anti-sabotage tasks near naval bases.

The 31-meter boats were developed by the Vympel Design Bureau and built in Rybinsk in the Yaroslavl Region.

The boats are equipped with heavy machine guns, grenade launchers, anti-sabotage and man-portable air defense systems.
