During the mid 1970s, the Soviet Navy saw the need for a new anti-submarine corvette for patrolling the Black sea. The resulting vessel from Project 12412 was named the "Molniya-2", or per its NATO reporting name, the Pauk class. The Molniya-2 was based on the larger Project 1241 Molniya-1 (NATO reporting name: Tarantul class) corvettes, being a lighter anti-submarine variant of the Molniya hull. Pr.12412P is a semi-official designation applied to the initial prototype, which used the larger M-507A diesel engines from the Pr.1241 Molnyia-1 corvette, giving it a small increase in engine power and top speed over the production variant.

Introduced in Update "Wind of Change", the MPK Pr.12412P (Molnyia-2) bolsters an already incredible line-up of coastal vessels at that rank of the Soviet tech tree. Joining the likes of other formidable vessels of similar tonnage such as its sister MPK Pr.12412 in the tech tree and the powerful SKR-7, the "Molnyia-2" brings more to the table than some of its contemporaries. The Pr.12412 has access to a rapid firing autoloaded 76 mm turret with access to two kinds of HE shells, including a HE-VT proximity-fuse shell for dealing with aerial targets (with the help of its radar-aided fire control system), along with a rotary AK-630 CIWS in the rear for dealing with closer and lower flying targets by filling the air with lead at 5,000 RPM. The diverse armament does not end there, as the Pr.12412 also has access to mortars, depth chargers, and decent torpedos all at once, making it a true "jack of all trades, yet master of none" for its class. One must be cautious when playing the Pr.12412 due to its sub-par armour (which becomes even more useless when uptiered to face bluewater destroyers), and to not be too trigger happy with the AK-630 CIWS due to its tendency to jam under sustained fire, and its insane rate of fire depleting ammo supplies very quickly when left unchecked.

Talk about the vehicle's armour. Note the most well-defended and most vulnerable zones, e.g. the ammo magazine. Evaluate the composition of components and assemblies responsible for movement and manoeuvrability. Evaluate the survivability of the primary and secondary armaments separately. Don't forget to mention the size of the crew, which plays an important role in fleet mechanics. Save tips on preserving survivability for the "Usage in battles" section. If necessary, use a graphical template to show the most well-protected or most vulnerable points in the armour.

Ammunition152 rounds
Vertical guidance-15° / 85°

Provide information about the characteristics of the primary armament. Evaluate their efficacy in battle based on their reload speed, ballistics and the capacity of their shells. Add a link to the main article about the weapon: {{main|Weapon name (calibre)}}. Broadly describe the ammunition available for the primary armament, and provide recommendations on how to use it and which ammunition to choose.

Some ships are fitted with weapons of various calibres. Secondary armaments are defined as weapons chosen with the control Select secondary weapon. Evaluate the secondary armaments and give advice on how to use them. Describe the ammunition available for the secondary armament. Provide recommendations on how to use them and which ammunition to choose. Remember that any anti-air armament, even heavy calibre weapons, belong in the next section. If there is no secondary armament, remove this section.

Usage in battles

Describe the technique of using this ship, the characteristics of her use in a team and tips on strategy. Abstain from writing an entire guide – don't try to provide a single point of view, but give the reader food for thought. Talk about the most dangerous opponents for this vehicle and provide recommendations on fighting them. If necessary, note the specifics of playing with this vehicle in various modes (AB, RB, SB).

Be sure to reference text and sources by using <ref></ref>, as well as adding them at the end of the article with <references />. This section may also include the ship's dev blog entry (if applicable) and the in-game encyclopedia description (under === In-game description ===, also if applicable).
