Press Release
Monday, June 25, 2012

Russia’s Coast Guard has accepted a second serial Project 22460 new-generation patrol ship

The ship, named the Brilliant, was developed by the Severnoye Design Bureau and built at the Almaz shipyard in St. Petersburg.

Project 22460 ships are designed to protect state borders and patrol territorial waters, and also to fight sea piracy. The new vessels are intended to replace the Soviet-built patrol fleet.

The lead ship of the project, the Rubin, was handed over to the Russian Federal Security Service’s Black Sea-Azov Frontier Directorate in September 2010. Another serial ship, the Zhemchug, is currently under construction.

Project 22460 ships’ water displacement is 630 tons; they have a maximum speed of 30 knots, an operating range of 3,500 miles, and endurance of up to 30 days.

The 62.5-meter vessels are equipped with advanced navigation and communication systems and a helipad.
