    Kalashnikov Begins Delivery of Assault Landing Boats to Russian Forces

    Kalashnikov Concern, part of the state corporation Rostec, began serial deliveries of assault landing boats for the special forces of the Russian Defense Ministry, according to official statement.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia’s famed small arms maker, the Kalashnikov Concern, which is actively expanding into new market segments, on Wednesday began it first deliveries of the BK-10 assault landing boat and the BK-16 multipurpose amphibious boat to Russia's Special Purpose Military Units (Spetsnaz).

    The multipurpose amphibious assault boats, developed by the concern's subsidiary — "Rybinsk Shipyard" — were showcased for the first time at the International Maritime Defense Show in St. Petersburg in July 2015.

    "Kalashnikov Concern, part of the state corporation Rostec, began serial deliveries of assault landing boats for the special forces of the Russian Defense Ministry," the statement reads.

    The boats can reach speeds of up to 40 knots (about 46 mph) and have a cruising range of some 400 nautical miles. According to the manufacturer, their technical characteristics and equipment are on a par with foreign competitor while their price is much lower.

    Russian Navy Creates Spetsnaz Units to Hunt for Enemy Saboteurs

    Two special units are being created as a part of Russia's Naval Fleet which are designed to detect the enemy saboteurs in Russia's coastal and littoral waters as well as undertake reconnaissance in an enemy-controlled territory, izvestia.ru reported.

    The newly created military units are being equipped with "Raptor" boats which can be used during the storm and develop speed up to 80 km/h. The soldiers will also use unmanned flying machines "Tachyon" which can detect the enemy at the depth of several meters.

    "There are two new units being created now. One in the Pacific, the second in Crimea," a representative of the Russian Defense Ministry told the newspaper.

    According to the spokesman, both squads are experimental, with their main task being to protect the coast from the enemy sabotage and deploy reconnaissance groups in an enemy-controlled territory.

    As director of the Center for Strategic Study Ivan Konovalov told the newspaper, coastal and littoral waters have long been actively used by special forces around the world.

    "To protect the entire coast is very difficult, so it is quite convenient to deploy unnoticed reconnaissance and sabotage groups to the territory controlled by the enemy and raid its coastal facilities," Konovalov said.

    According to the expert, there are three similar groups in the US Navy equipped with special boats for operations in coastal and littoral zones. The UK armed forces also have so called SBS boat groups (Special Boat Service) which operate at the shore and undertake covert reconnaissance, intelligence gathering and other activities.

    The BK-16 appears to be just a slightly smaller version of the Raptor.

    The work of Russian combat swimmers in Syria, guarding the ships of the Navy in the port and on the roads of Tartus, continues the practice of using naval special forces in the USSR to protect domestic shipping and warships in dangerous waters. About this Lente.ru reported a source in the Russian law enforcement agencies.

    According to the press, all categories of combat swimmers work in Tartus: miners, engineers, scouts. They work out a whole range of activities, ranging from anti-sabotage and mine clearance to ships, ending with the exploration of the most convenient places on the coast, where enemy combat swimmers can land.
