Description: The Project 21630 Buyan, Project 21632 Tornado export version, is a new generation of river-sea type gunboat designed to protect Russia's 200-mile maritime economic zone and provide naval gunfire support for counterterrorist operations. The ship features stealth technology and is equipped with large- and medium-caliber dual purpose guns. Due to its shallow draft (up to 2 meters), the ship can perform missions in shallow waters, in river mouths, particularly delivering troops directly to the beach. At the same time, its design features enabled safe navigation in stormy conditions (at sea state up to 6) and use of weapons at sea state up to 4. Its water jets ensure speeds of up to 25 knots under any conditions, provide high maneuverability and controllability, reduce noise and running vibration, and are not prone to damage in shallow waters.

The Project 21635, also known as Sarsar, is a small missile ship derived from the Buyan class gunboats. The new vessel was introduced by Rosoboronexport at the Army-2018 exhibition on August 21, 2018.
