Russia will introduce Chinese diesel engines for its Type 21980 Grachonok anti-terror boats after Germany announced that it will no longer supply engines to Moscow, Chinese media reported Wednesday.

China signed a contract with Russia last week for engines for the two Type 21980 Grachonok anti-terror boats with the serial numbers 01221 and 01222. Both vessels are currently being built by Vympel Shipyard. The vessels will be equipped with TBD620V12 main engines produced in China, Want China Times quoted Russian news website Military Parade as reporting.

China will also supply two decelerators and two couplings for the vessel. Russian Navy had placed an order for six Grachonok anti-terror boats from Vympel Shipyard in January 2014. It is still unclear whether all the boats will use Chinese engines, the website reported.
