In the right part of the cloth there are crossed sickle and hammer of red color – the symbol of unity of the workers and peasants.
Down the relief image of the ship stands its classification: “Submarine Chaser MO-IV”. Over the figured ribbon stands its full name: “Maly Okhotnik” (Little Hunter”).
All the pins from the series are made of aluminum alloy with the safety pin fastening. The method of painting is cold enamel.
Submarine Chaser MO-IV is a legendary soviet military boat, which can be called a mini-cruiser. The frontier guards were the first troops in the USSR who had wooden patrol boats, but such high qualities as seaworthiness, speed, maneuverability gave them the green light. After some modifications and installation of anti-submarine rig they became submarine chasers. Three rudders and three engines provided the boat with high speed and reliable control. The hull lines were also a success. A tiny “MO” did not capsize in storm and could easily ride the waves. “The underwater exhaust” of the engines reduced the noise coming from the boat. It was extremely important for sudden and covert operations, especially by night.
