Ship project history: Designed in 1934 under guidance of Yu. Yu. Benua. In 1936 the lead boat passed trials and project was launched in a batch production. Boats were intended for service on Amur, but were used on various theatres, both rivers, and seas. They had armoured citadel and deck house; machinery consisted of two aviation motors. Boats were armed by two turrets from T-28 or BT-7A tanks. The AA armament under the project included a cupola with twin 12.7mm MG, but because of low rates of issuance of the latter considerable part of boats was armed by 1 single 12.7mm or 1 twin 7.62mm MGs instead.
    Since 1940 as standard armament turrets from T-34 tank with regular 76mm/41.5 guns (part of boats received turrets with 76mm/24 guns) were accepted. Displacement has thus increased to 38.6/43.8t. At expense of improved motors endurance grown to 365nm. However in 1940-1942 in connection with cessation of issuance of T-28 tank turrets and deficiency of T-34 tank turrets part of boats was armed by 2 76mm/30 Lender AA guns. Since 1942 some boats instead of aft turret received 1 24-rail 82mm rocket launcher or 1 16-rail 132mm rocket launcher. Subsequently for deck wetness reduction wider clearing bar was established, the breadth thus increased to 3.96 m. Since 1945 serial boats additionally received 37mm MG. Total displacement of boats by the war end grown till 48-52t.

Ship protection: Hull and CT had bullet-proof protection, guns placed in standard tank turrets. 76/30mm 8K guns were on open mounts without shields.

Modernizations: many boats were re-armed by various schemes, mostly as presented in the table.

Naval service: No significant events.
