Minesweepers Alexandrite able to find "smart" mines

19
The new minesweepers of the 12700 Alexandrite project with fiberglass hulls are able to find mines “able” to dig in the ground, reports TASS report of the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Navy for armaments, Viktor Bursuk.




“These minesweepers are designed to combat the mines that are now in service with a potential enemy and fleets of world powers. This is by no means the mines of World War II. This is a fight against the so-called “smart” mines, which are capable of burrowing into the ground and being completely invisible to ships that are not equipped with special means, ”said Bursuk.

According to him, “the minesweepers of the Alexandrite project should form the basis of protecting the ships of the Russian Navy for at least several decades.”

“Design thought does not stand still. In particular, already on this ship ("Ivan Antonov", the third ship of this series) will be used crewless boat, which will allow you to safely trawling personnel in shallow water ", - said Alexander Shlyahtenko, general director of Almaz Central Design Bureau.

In turn, Bursuk added that only such ships would be created for mine-sweeping forces, since "they are universal in size and possess the newest domestic weapons for mine search."

Help agency: "minesweepers" Alexandrite "project 12700 designed by CMDB" Almaz ". They are equipped with the latest hydroacoustic stations, located both on the ship itself and on remote-controlled and autonomous underwater vehicles, and have an automated mine action control system. The ships have the world's largest monolithic fiberglass hull, formed by vacuum infusion. "

    On these ships should be imported components and equipment. Could replace, or without it managed?

      There are no ships yet. The article is written about our distant and wonderful prospects. 1 combat unit on the Russian Navy. And there, you see, and the sanctions will be lifted!

          Pavel, welcome! Necessary and promising, no doubt. Black Sea Fleet, Baltic Fleet, Northern Fleet, Pacific Fleet, Caspian Flotilla. How many do they need and when will they appear in service? At that pace, in about 15 years.

            Vyacheslav, my compliments! The main thing is to get the Alexandrite project off the ground. And do not slow down, then, you see, and not in 15 years, but earlier.

              The head "Obukhov" was accepted into the fleet in December 2016. In 2011, it was laid down again for 5 years from bookmark to delivery. The rearmament program includes 11 units until 2020.
              Maybe early !?

                  I understand that there are problems with the development of fiberglass hull manufacturing technology, few plants are ready for this.

    These minesweepers should be made in a large series, but it is not done. The highest value is when the product is put into operation, and then everything is not completely understood and mines are buried that they still cannot deal with. Allegro with the release, in general.

    Very reminiscent of the Italian "Lerici" true 1985 year of entry into operation. TTX are about the same. Also plastic. The Yankees and Australians built their Osprey and Helen on their basis and with the help of Italians. And it seems that the Osprey has a monocoque body and a larger displacement.

    Fiberglass (monocoque) minesweepers of the Osprey type of the US Navy went into operation in 1993-99. in the amount of 12 units. They are slightly larger than Obukhov - 881 / 959 tons of displacement (620 tons from Obukhov), the engines are a bit more powerful, otherwise the parameters are approximately the same, except for weapons: the Osprey has only a couple of machine guns and it is not designed for combat, The "Obukhov" is the 1X6 30-mm AK-306 and 2 PU "Needle" (8 missiles). In addition, Osprey can perform only one of two tasks at the same time - either search or trawling (both search equipment and a mechanical mine-sweeping are not placed at the same time). But it has a new integrated ICWS combat control system.
