boats of various displacement were used in the Navy of the USSR. Project 376 cutters
were a large series of cutters that were built for the Soviet navy as well as
civilian users starting in 1955 and are in use up to this day on the rivers and
harbors for Russia. In total, more than 600 boats of this type were built. The
