Ship project history: Built under the decision of the War council of Leningrad front from 7/5/1942 for service on Ladoga on the "Road of Life": providing of beleaguered Leningrad by foodstuffs and ammunition and evacuation of citizens. They had strongly pronounced lines of an impromptu of a wartime: so, tender hull was welded from several flat sheets and shared on some sections. They were built in Leningrad in three variants: one-hold (12t capacity), small and big two-holds (15 and 25t capacity). They were originally used as cargo vessels on Ladoga, since 1943 as landing ships on Baltic and Black Sea. In 1944 22 boats were converted to minesweeping boats.

Modernizations: 1945, KT-892: - military load capacity; + sweeps.

Naval service: No significant events.
