IDEF 2021: Ukrainian SRDSC showcases Kaira-150 multitask craft

The Ukrainian State Research and Design Shipbuilding Center (SRDSC) showcases a model of Kaira-150 multitask craft during IDEF2021, the International Defense Exhibition hold in Istanbul, Turkey from 17 to 20 August 2021.

This was reported by Navy Recognition.

The special mission configurations proposed by the Designer for the Kaira-150 multitask craft include patrol boat, counter-diver boat, mine countermeasures vessel, coastguard board, fast response search and rescue boat, firefighting boat, diving boat, training boat, and emergency ambulance boat.

The ship is powered by two diesel engines and can reach a full speed of 27 knots, she will feature a steel hull and aluminum, or alternatively, composite superstructure and the forward superstructure can be mounted artillery weapons, including a 30-mm cannon, a MANPADS ( man-portable air defense systems) IGLA type SAM's and two 12.7 mm Heavy machine guns.

The platform will feature a U.S. brand ship stabilizing gyro that, unlike conventional counterparts, doesn't rely on the forward speed of the ship to generate a roll stabilizing moment, meaning it can stabilize the ship while slow or even at anchorage. This would contribute to crew comfort and productivity, especially while on high seas.

SRDSC is an affiliate of the Ukroboronprom State Defense Industries Group and the leading company in design/development of surface vessels in Ukraine.
