It is a steel single hull vessel without a crew. Vertical masts with a net between
them are installed on the deck. On the tops of the masts, special corner radar
reflectors are installed, which significantly increase radar visibility, and allow
the use of anti-ship missiles on them, as well as the use of naval artillery firing
radars. The registration of the effectiveness of hits is recorded by net breaks
between the masts, as well as high-speed film and photo equipment (recently -
video equipment). The use of a target barges is possible both as a fixed target
and on the move (in tow).
