Caspian Flotilla Takes Delivery of New Modular Boat
The rescue squad of the Caspian Flotilla in Russia’s Astrakhan Region has received the first of four Project 23370 modular boats. This information was presented by the press service of the Southern Military District.
“The crew of the new motor boat will have to pass exams in accordance with the course of the preparation of rescue vessels. The new boat has been adopted by the rescue squad of the Caspian Flotilla,” the press center informed.
It should be noted that a shipyard in Astrakhan has already built four Project 23370 modular boats for the Caspian Flotilla. The remaining three boats will be adopted by the rescue squad in the first half of 2015 after passing all the stages of state tests. The Project 23370 boat is the Russian Navy’s first vessel based on a modular approach that provides new capabilities for Search and Rescue Forces of the Russian Navy as a whole and of the Black Sea Fleet in particular.
