Vehicle History

In 1984, construction began on a new type of small anti-submarine boat for the USSR. Project 11451 boats, thanks to their high speed, towed sonar array and powerful weapons, were supposed to search for enemy submarines. A group of several of these boats could very quickly move to an area for the chosen search, carry out the search and if necessary, quickly move to new coordinates. Despite the planned large series of MPKs, only two Project 11451 boats were able to be fully completed before the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Meet the MPK Pr.11451!

The Pr.11451 will be added in the Seek & Destroy major update as a new top tier Coastal fleet boat for the USSR. This amazing hydrofoil combines excellent weapons and very high speed and will be a good addition to the top Soviet naval lineups. Let’s have a look.

Coming in with a top speed of 120 km/h, the MPK Pr.11451 is driven by two gas turbine engines, has hydrofoils and can easily overcome shallow water. Thanks to this, this boat will be an ideal assistant when going for capture points in the coastal areas! It’ll be easy to be the first to capture points at the beginning of a battle, and it can quickly get into cover and evade shots. The general disadvantage of hydrofoil boats however, is that if you slow down in shallow water, you’ll probably end up getting stuck, so be careful here.

Alongside its agility, the MPK Pr.11451 also boasts excellent weapons. The main caliber of this boat is an automatic 76 mm AK-176M cannon on the bow, already known to you if you play the MPK Pr.12412 and 12412P. This gun has a good rate of fire, although not much less than the Italian Sparviero cannon. You’ll be able to pick from HE shells and HE-VT shells for use against aircraft or for quickly destroying the crew of enemy boats that are more open.

At the stern of the MPK Pr.11451 is a rapid-firing 30 mm cannon, as well as two rotary torpedo tubes with SET-72 high-speed torpedoes — 8 of these in total.

Because of its size, mobility and firepower capabilities, the MPK Pr.11451 is going to be one of the better Coastal fleet boats in the game. It’s going to be very versatile in battle by charging towards capture points and holding areas of shallow water, divert fire of destroyers and set up torpedo ambushes, and generally be annoying to aircraft. Be aware of your surroundings, and we’re sure the MPK Pr.11451 will bring you victory and pure pleasure in naval battles.

That’s today’s blog. You can look forward to this new boat in the Seek & Destroy major update, coming very soon. See you!


Please note that this vehicle's characteristics may be adjusted before being added to the game.
