Description: The Project 12061 Murena, Project 12061E Murena-E export designation, is an air cushion landing craft designed to transport amphibious landing equipment and troops onshore while providing fire support. The Murena landing craft can transport up to 24-t of payload including: 130 fully equipped troops; two medium armored vehicles; three light armored vehicles; or one medium main battle tank. The craft can operate with a wind velocity of up to 12 mps and a waves of up to 1.5 meters in height.

The Murena-class vessels weapon system includes two 30mm six-barrel AK-630 guns and eight Igla-1M surface-to-air missiles and can be equipped with 10 to 24 mines. The propulsion system is based on two MT-70M gas turbines each developing 10,000-hp. The gas turbines drive two AV-96 reversible variable-pitch air propellers and inflate the air cushion. Two Volvo Penta diesel generators provide the electrical power supply. All in, the 150-t Murena craft achieves a top speed of 55 knots and has a cruising range of over 200-nm. The hull is made of high-strength non-corrosive aluminum-magnesium alloy.
