Survivability and armour
The MPK Pr.122bis has a good armour, her most well defended zone is at the center and her most vulnerable area is the primary weapon. The ammo magazines are not much of a problem because they are well protected.
The crew size of the boat is 60 sailors, which is consequent and makes it hard to knock out the boat just with crew depletion.

The primary weapon on the MPK Pr.122bis is the 85 mm 90-K cannon. A good gun on its own right that only really needs high-explosive shells to handle most of its opponents. Due to the cannon's ability, most battles may only require up to 100 shells to be brought in for the match. The gun has great frontal firing arcs, reaching all the way to the ship's sides to nigh-rear with the ±160° horizontal traverse range. However, the slow traverse speed means that the MPK Pr.122bis shouldn't expect to fight enemies coming in at all sides.
The secondary armament on the MPK Pr.122bis is two 37 mm 70-K automatic guns. With the two placed in the rear, they provide enough firepower to compensate the 85 mm's inability to attack towards the ship's stern. Carrying a full complement of explosive shells can help take care of any boats and planes trying to attack from the ship's stern.
The tertiary armament of the MPK Pr.122bis are three turrets of dual-mounted DShK machine guns, one in the front and two in the rear. Though not as powerful as the 37 mm 70-K guns, these machine guns help supplement the firepower against approaching boats and planes.

The significantly upgraded version of the Project 122 small patrol boats designated Project 122bis MASB has been evaluated by experts as one of the most successful models in its class in the Soviet navy. This version varies from the Project 122 and 122A versions due to its new powertrain, differently-constructed cabin and enhanced anti-air weapons (aft 37mm autocannons), as well as other improvements. The Soviet navy began employing the RGB-12 rocket-powered bomb against enemy subs in 1953. In later versions, the boats of Project 122bis had bomb launchers mounted on their foreward sections for firing these rocket-powered bombs – two rail-type launchers with a constant firing arc that could be aimed horizontally by correcting the ship’s course. The Soviet navy used the submarine chasers of Project 122bis until the late 60s, and they also exported them to many other countries.
