Primary armament

Main article: 90-K (85mm)

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.

Secondary armament

Main article: 70-K (37 mm)

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.

Anti-aircraft armament

Main article: DShK (12.7 mm)

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.

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).

Pros and cons

Summarise and briefly evaluate the vehicle in terms of its characteristics and combat effectiveness. Mark its pros and cons in the bulleted list. Try not to use more than 6 points for each of the characteristics. Avoid using categorical definitions such as "bad", "good" and the like - use substitutions with softer forms such as "inadequate" and "effective".




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.
