Russia Conducts Naval Drills Testing Raptor Speedboats

The Russian Caspian Flotilla has carried out naval exercises testing its Raptor high-speed boats used to secure its naval formations and counter hostile infiltration attempts.

During the test, counter-sabotage troops simulated the interception and neutralization of a group of enemy combat divers, who were attempting to plant explosives to blow up flotilla ships.

Known for their high speed and manoeuvrability, Raptor boats are equipped with heavy machine guns and automatic grenade launchers.

These boats feature an automated turret with a 14.5mm heavy machine gun and an electro-optical system that can detect targets up to 3km away. However, this machine gun can be replaced with an automatic grenade launcher if required by the mission profile.
