    Will likely have RPGs and small arms on board for engaging threats...

    Together with the 30mm gatling on the nose and likely HMG like Kord or KPV mounts around the place they should be able to get most vessels to stop on demand.

    Of course the speed boats and helicopter are probably "armed" too.

    For the Helo a Ka-29 with rocket pods and ATGMs and light cannon would also be very persuasive too.

    Uran missiles are too expensive for a simple patrol boat.

    And of little use.

    The extra equipment just to actually be able to use Uran would make the boat 2-3 times more expensive... might as well fit Rif while you are at it...

    This patrol boat will be dealing with yachts and fishing boats... the 30mm gun on the nose is probably already over kill as most of the time they will simply land a group of soldiers on the target boat in question and take her over...
