Managing Director of the KMZ holding (Kingisepp Machine-Building Plant) Mikhail Danilenko revealed details about Russia’s first unmanned boats, or sea drones, for which the first water-jet propulsion has already been assembled.
We call it a disposable boat. It is shallow-drafted, flat, with a minimum height above the water surface for low visibility. Speed is about 80 kilometers per hour, range is more than 200 kilometers. The payload is about 600 kilograms: it can be TNT, special cargo, escort and reconnaissance equipment.
The boat can work as a platform for an aerial drone.
