As reported by RIA News, a representative of the Department of Information and Mass Communications of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for the Navy, Captain 1st Rank Igor Dygalo said: “Currently, as part of fleet the lead ship of the project 12700 Alexander Obukhov is located and is carrying out tasks, and the second ship of the PMO Georgy Kurbatov ship is on the slipways of the Sredne-Nevsky Shipbuilding Plant under construction. In the near term, it is planned to build about 20 Project 12700 mine defense ships for the Russian Navy. ”


The ceremony of laying the third minesweeper under construction is scheduled for January 21 at the Sredne-Nevsky Shipbuilding Plant (St. Petersburg).

Russian Navy will get 20 minesweeper project 12700


The anti-mine ship of the 12700 Alexandrite project was developed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau and is a new generation of minesweepers. The anti-mine contour of the ship is formed using the newest, highly efficient sonar stations located both on the ship itself and on remote-controlled and autonomous underwater vehicles. At the same time, the ability to use traditional trawling weapons remains.
The displacement of minesweepers is 890 tons, the length of the 61 meter, the width of the 10 meters, the travel speed at full displacement of 16,5 knots, the crew over 40 people. The ship has high maneuverability due to the use of an effective complex of various thrusters. This ship has a unique, the world's largest monolithic fiberglass hull, formed by vacuum infusion. The advantages of the composite hull are lower mass and higher strength compared to low-magnetic steel hulls, which increases the survivability of the ship when searching for mines and increases its service life.

In general, according to the Russian Navy’s chief command, the mine defensive ships of the new generation of the 12700 project will significantly increase the effectiveness of the actions of the mine-sweeping forces of the Navy.

        And in more detail, what's French there. By the way, forum users enlighten, the power plant on it is ours? Will there be no problems?

    Anyway, it looks very similar to the "Yakhont" for this series once started a service - have been very good for those times ships CSI. It's a shame that this series will be built with a "Russian swing" - for ten years, and the time is coming!

        until 2021, just a contract for 6 minesweepers - this is without a long tradition of moving the deadlines to the right. So much chatter was already from them that they were already tired of taking seriously

      Restless, this was promised to you (us) by the Nobel laureate, a certain Gorbachev by the name of M.S. This is the most worthy gentleman and demand your apartment, as an honest and decent person, he will build it for you and hand over the keys, and will report, I am sure of that. With the upcoming housewarming.

    Who in the subject tell me, mine weapons are generally standing by our probable opponents, is it relevant with modern shipborne detection tools?
    Has it been used since 2MB?

        Thanks, I read it.
        But she has nothing to do with my question.
        The discovered mine is useless, then why the hell do you need special mine action ships, when now even fishermen are looking for fish using echo sounders!?!?
        In general, I did not wait until you (not personally you are Stirbjorn, but readers of VO) give birth to something to my question and started to google it myself, and so. Europeans have no sea mines at all, completely and absolutely. The Americans had insignificant reserves and were even sold for export, but they didn’t have any roles in the fleet, they just left them ... so, just in case, they have flamethrower tanks from the times of Vietnam just in case, they are in storage, no one does not take seriously.
        ...
        There would be a real threat of mines, they would simply put on the nose of combat (and not very combat) ships the NUR corrected block (not only with classic missiles, but with small missile torpedoes) range and accuracy are not needed there, if only at a distance of 100 meters to get into a sea mine (which can’t be small), you can also use anti-torpedoes, my invented version is several times cheaper and does not contradict physics and common sense.

    They will build a hundred years. At a pace as it is now for sure.
