HISTORY: The BK boats were used between 1939 and 1945 on all European fronts from Austria to Stalingrad and in all rivers and were armed with different combinations of turrets and KATUSKA rockets for bombardment with the model depicting a boat with three 12.7mm machine gun turrets from the T-28 or T-35 tank and a 76.2mm T-34 Model 1941 main turret. The BK boat had a 10 man Naval infantry crew and were transported by train to move the units from a river to river and was specially designed to cross tunnels and bridges on board train wagons.
The Soviets used these ships in frontal attacks against other land tanks or enemy infantry with those armed with KATUSKA rockets for bombardment against fortifications or cities (Vienna in Austria was bombed with these ships).
