Previously, under the previous contract of 2014, during 2015, the Pella plant handed over eight boats of project 03160 to the Ministry of Defense of Russia — four of them planned for the 2014 program, and four for the 2015 program.Of these boats, seven (construction numbers from 701 to 705 and from 707 to 708) are officially registered as part of the Russian Navy anti-sabotage boats. In fact, according to known data, these boats are used in the fleets as part of special-purpose naval intelligence posts. Of these, two boats (P-280 and P-281, the corresponding building numbers 705 and 704) are part of the Baltic Fleet, based on Kronstadt, and the other five (P-274, P-275, P-276, P-838, P-845) - are listed as part of the Black Sea Fleet, based on Novorossiysk and Sevastopol (two Black Sea boats in 2016 were transferred to Tartus in Syria).
Another boat of project 03160 P-344 with building number 706, commissioned in August 2015, was built as a communication boat - in fact, as a traveling boat for VIP transportation. Formally numbered as part of the Baltic Fleet, the P-344 is permanently moored at the mooring complex of the landing stage of the DBR-481 Project 02590 of the National Defense Management Center of the Russian Federation on the Frunze Embankment of the Moscow River, and appears to be used as a personal travel boat of the Minister of Defense Russia.
The lead boat (prototype) of the RM-15 of Project 03160 Raptor, designed and built by Pella, OJSC, on the instructions of the Russian Navy, was launched at the enterprise on August 15, 2013 and commissioned to the Navy in 2014 Thus, in view of the lowered December 14, 2016, the company has built a total of 11 boats of the project 03160.
