The Yaz-class river patrol boat, also known as Project 1208, is a Russian Coast Guard vessel. The patrol craft is designed to operate in rivers to secure and protect Russian maritime borders, enforce navigational laws and other law enforcement duties, and search and rescue. The patrol craft work alongside other Russian Coast Guard and Navy vessels, such as the Vosh class and the Ogonek class river patrol craft. The single active vessel is assigned to the Amur-Ussuri River network.
The patrol craft have a basic design and are powered by diesel engines. The weapon suite allows the craft to engage surface, ground, and air threats and targets. The patrol craft have cutaway bows to allow for improved navigation through ice. The vessels are constructed with extensive armor.
