These boats are the descendants of the Osa-class missile boat and are a heavily modified version of the Turya-class torpedo boat. The SS-N-2 launchers are the same type as carried on the Mod-Kashin-class destroyers. Following the 1997 Black Sea Fleet partition treaty all Black Sea Fleet Matka class boats were passed to the Ukrainian Navy.
