PROJECT 12418 MOLNIYA Guided Missile Boat

Companies & Organizations:


Project 12418 Molniya guided missile boat is designed to destroy warships, transports, and landing craft in the open sea.



Weapon employment in Sea States up to 4 without course/speed limitations at max allowed propulsion power, and in Sea State 5 at a speed of up to 22 knots inclusive;

Safe seagoing ability at reduced speeds in Sea States 7 and 8;

Innovative design incorporating over 30 inventions.


Main propulsion plant

The boat is powered by a two-shaft GGTA M15E1 gas turbine propulsion plant. Electric power is supplied by one DGF2A 100/1500 and two DGR2A 200/1500 diesel generators.
