DS-RIB: New Tactical Boat for Special Forces

23 August 2021
New Product Introduced at Army 2021 International Military and Technical Forum

Rybinsk Shipyard (a subsidiary of the Kalashnikov Group) has developed DS-RIB, Russia's first inflatable tactical boat designed for rapid transportation of special forces teams.

A unique feature of the DS-RIB tactical boat is its inflation system. It only takes 45 seconds to inflate the boat from a compressed air cylinder. The inflation system allows to do that right out at sea.

Another advantage of the DS-RIB is its extremely compact size. A pair of folded DS-RIBs will easily fit in the trunk of an SUV. When folded in a shipping case, the boat is less than 500 mm in diameter, allowing to deploy it through a submarine's torpedo tube. The boat can also be airlifted unfolded, sling-mounted to a helicopter.

The boat is available in two options:

  • The DS-RIB 450 is 4.5 m long and 1.85 m wide, weighs 70 kg and accommodates eight passengers. The boat is powered by a 50-hp LS engine and has a cruising speed of 50-60 km/h.

  • The second option, DS-RIB 530, can accommodate from 10 to 12 people. The larger boat is 5.4 m long and 2.34 m wide, weighing 110 kg. With two 30-hp SS engines, its cruising speed is 40-60 km/h.
