Today in the town of Primorsk, Kaliningrad Region, a solemn ritual of the first hoisting of the Russian Navy flag took place on the newest high-speed landing boats of project 02510 of the BK-16 type, built for the Baltic Fleet at the Rybinsk Shipyard JSC.

The ceremony was attended by representatives of the command and servicemen of the Baltic Fleet. Rear Admiral Oleg Apishev, Deputy Chief of the Main Staff of the Russian Navy, handed over the Andreevskie flags to the boat commanders. Then, to the sound of the anthem of the Russian Federation, they were raised at the stern of the combat units of the fleet.

This event was preceded by the successful implementation of the program of factory running (ZHI) and state tests (GI), during which all the systems and weapons of the boats were tested for their intended purpose.

After successfully passing the ZHI and GI, the State Acceptance Commission signed acts on the acceptance of boats from the manufacturer’s plant into the Russian Navy. By order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy, landing boats were included in the combat strength of the Baltic Fleet.

For reference:

Project 02510 high-speed transport and landing boats are designed for the transfer and disembarkation of troops, fire support for the landing, participation in anti-sabotage operations, the fight against piracy and terrorism, the transportation of light cargo and participation in rescue operations.

The combat complex of boats is a remotely controlled combat module developed by the Kalashnikov concern. The module has armor protection against 7.62 caliber bullets of the B-32 type and is gyro-stabilized along two axes, which increases its firing accuracy during rolling.
