Ukrainian border guards received Metal Shark boats from the USA: what is known about them

The United States of America handed over Metal Shark high-speed boats to the Sea Guard of the State Border Service of Ukraine. They are already used to protect the sea and river sections of the border.

RBK-Ukraine reports this with reference to the State Border Service.

As noted in the department, the boats are equipped with modern navigation, control, automatic fire extinguishing and video surveillance cameras, which makes them maneuverable, fast and ergonomic.

Border guards are already using them on the sea and river sections of the border for protection and defense, and they are also involved in ensuring the security component of the maritime corridor in the Black Sea.

Please note, the exact type of boats is not specified, but judging by the published photos, Ukraine received the Metal Shark 45 Defiant. These boats have a solid aluminum construction, and the length of their hull is 13.8 meters, width – 4.6 meters. Boats can develop a speed of 35-40 knots.
