The landing craft “Serna” was designed by the Central Design Bureau (TsKB) from the “SPK named after R. E. Alekseev” in the city of Nizhny Novgorod. At first, such boats were created for use in the dock chambers of landing ships, but they are used independently.

Landing boats of the “Serna” type are distinguished by high speed due to the use of the principle of movement on an artificial gas or air cavity, which is located on the bottom of the hull. The hull itself is made of aluminum-magnesium alloys with anti-bullet and anti-fragmentation armor. The ship features an open tank platform. The boats of this project are intended for transportation with subsequent landing on an unequipped shore of advanced landing units with full armament in the amount of up to 92 people, as well as military wheeled, tracked and other military equipment weighing up to 45 tons.

They belong to the ships of the 4th rank. Named in honor of the common trumps (Russian “chamois”) – an artiodactyl mammal from the goat subfamily.
