The specification for the design was issued in 1946. The ships were steel hulled coastal minesweepers and were to replace wartime T301 class coastal sweepers. Following trials the bow shape was changed to improve sea-keeping and more advanced electronics and sweeps were introduced throughout the service lives of these ships.
At total of 37 ships were built at Rybinsk. The last two ships were retired in 1992.
