    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.

    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.
