Kovrovets returns to the shores of Syria

The naval minesweeper of the Black Sea was included in the eastern Mediterranean on the basis of the rotation program fleet "Kovrovets." From a statement by the official representative of the Black Sea Fleet, Captain 1st Rank Vyacheslav Trukhachev:
The anti-mine ship on the basis of the planned rotation will replace the group of the same type sea minesweeper "Ivan Golubets", which operated in the far operational zone for more than four months.

              There will be no other comment.
              One thing I can say.
              When in the distant 1970s he was first on a warship in swimming practice, it turned out to be a minesweeper ...
              So, they didn’t even let us into the post of specialist ....... ... they showed the list of admitted to this room ....
              Of course, something else was said.
              And every day they told something new ...
              Tralshik is such a plain-looking ship ....
              But objects in troubled waters at a distance from the ship it detects, classifies and, if necessary, destroys.

              And if there is no such ship as part of the OVR, then to hell then cruisers and battleships ...

            Well, why is it so disrespectful of a veteran of the fleet !?
            Two Turkish frigates, too, did not regard the Mercury brig as a serious enemy. For which they were shocked to the fullest!
            I dare to remind you about MTSH "Helmsman", which during an air raid on Latakia shot down the latest Phantom-2 at that time
            In addition, he is able to carry out a search and search function. So that all sorts of filiugs do not spoil mine approaches to bases and ports.
            And he was sent to Syria in connection with the mine threat to shipping. 29.02.2016/XNUMX/XNUMX RIA Novosti reported about the seizure of a warehouse of bottom mines by ISIS. Although, in the absence of naval means of setting the MZM, the ISIS personnel are unlikely to be able to set them up, precautions were nevertheless taken.

            Kovrovets could share this experience with the entire Black Sea Fleet, and he would have left for a remake!
            "Kovrovets", factory number 929, was laid down at the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard. Joined the fleet on November 8.11.1974, 07.1982. From 15.02.1992 it bore the name "Kursk Komsomolets", 25.07.1999 renamed to "Gunner", XNUMX - to "Kovrovets".
            He participated in the protection of Soviet fishing vessels in fishing areas in the Atlantic off the coast of West Africa.
            He solved the problems of mine support for Soviet shipping in the Persian Gulf in conditions when the Iran-Iraq war continued. During his first trip to the Persian Gulf in 1987 (196 days), he carried 16 convoys (27 of Soviet ships) through mine-hazardous areas, passing 17 900 miles.
            In 1988, 32 led a tanker and transport through the mine-hazardous areas of the Persian Gulf.
            2006 to 2007 underwent repairs at the shipyard in Streletskaya bay (Sevastopol).
            In February 2016, he launched a mine clearance patrol off the coast of Syria. 25.05 2016 he returned from the BS from the coast of Syria. Based on the results of the combat service, the ship was awarded the Prize of the Navy Group of Companies as the best mine preparation ship.

            And you say "as a combat unit, this wooden vessel = 0."
            Perhaps you still consider yourself a mariman? Oh well...

          Well, obviously they don’t want to hope for chance, as is the case with the same Su-24.

          Friends can quite bring authentic Italian mines of the 40s and drop them, and then when a large landing ship / frigate / transport is blown up on them, they can go to the Echo of War.

          Plus, Tartus has a base already - and there is a trawler laid across the state.

    The naval minesweeper of the Black Sea Fleet "Kovrovets" was included in the composition of the naval group in the eastern Mediterranean based on the rotation program.
    Yes, "Kuzya" and "Petya" - home, and "Kovrovets" on duty. Equivalent replacement? I don't think ...

    Normal rotation of sailors in combat service. We must keep the flag on the sea - we keep it. We occupy the space in front of the coast, avoiding the mischievous thoughts that you can approach the coast and shoot with impunity, as in the case of the battleship "New Jersey" in Lebanon in 1983. And the minesweeper ... well, small in appearance, well, almost unarmed, but try to touch it. Others will do, so the recoil will torture you. Those who do not believe can ask the Georgians.

      Exactly - pensioner! And I still remember him as a "Komsomol member". True, "Kursk Komsomolets". But all the same, in naval practice, he was then the newest, sea (!) Minesweeper.

    Judging by the armament, this is not only a minesweeper, but also a small anti-submarine ship. It would not hurt modern designers to learn how to build ships from Soviet designers, otherwise they will build a missile boat without anti-aircraft defense systems and try to call it a corvette, which indicates unprofessionalism and fraud.
