The crew of the anti-mine ship of the base zone "Alexander Obukhov" is dissatisfied with the boat-drone French company ECA Group, he is criticized for the manufacturer's shortcomings. About this to the Central Naval Portal сообщил source familiar with the situation.

According to the crew members, "the boat is still damp and cannot perform all the required functions." The source added that this is partly why he did not come with the ship to the waters of the International Navy Salon.

The Navy has problems with the crew of the minesweeper "Alexander Obukhov"


The commander of the ship, Captain III Rank, Sergey Tikhonov, refused to specify the details of the FlotProm correspondent, but added that during the International Maritime Defense Show, "the boat was at the base, carrying out tasks to protect it." The source of the FlotProm in the Baltic Fleet added that 20 June 2017, the Inspector, from Obukhov for the first time went independently to the Baltic Sea.

28 June, during the IMDS-2017, ECA Group Commercial Director Dominic Mallet told FlotProm that in the next two years the company will organize the Russian production of Inspector Mk2 Russian crewless boats and Seascan Mk2 underwater defense vehicles.

According to Malle, originally the ECA Group planned to supply the Russian Navy with four crewless boats (BEC) and an underwater vehicle for Alexandre-type minesweepers. However, the parties later agreed to supply only three boats. The Russian side has already received two “Inspectors”, another one will be delivered by the end of 2017. The contract value is about 10 million euros.

And although our products did not fall under sanctions, the Russian side refused the fourth boat, deciding to produce them independently.
- said Malle, -
In the next two years, we intend to organize the production of the Inspector boats and underwater anti-mine devices for them in Russia


Since 1936, ECA Group has been developing in the field of robotics, automated systems, modeling and industrial processes. BEC of the company's development is used on the 12700 "Alexander Obukhov" mine defense lead ship.

The base minesweeper of the 12700 project (cipher "Alexandrite") "Alexander Obukhov" was designed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau for the needs of the Russian Navy. Mine defense ships of this type are designed to search and destroy mines in the waters of naval bases. It is assumed that the minesweepers of this project will be the basis of the updated naval mine-defense forces of the Russian Navy.

            Next time, make an insert through the Yu-Tube icon (the penultimate in the comment menu).
            And the mess in the Constitution, which was created by American advisers under Yeltsin, just rolls over. Everything is done to ruin Russia.

            And Fedorov here mentioned that they would bomb (2013), so this is already happening through sanctions.

        There are mutual problems. The traletz was not immediately designed with this boat in mind. On the other hand, this boat from the base application has doubled in serial production.

        Well, and most importantly, the construction method of the stigma played a malicious role. If he was typed in classics, then the head would have problems, and even if the final specification came when the case was formed.

        Immediately, the ailment cannot be eliminated, because two matrices on Nevsky have already been created. And they are the most expensive. Moreover, the following stilts are already cast and they cannot insert a section.

        So the jamb came out - the main know-how of Alexandrite, can only act autonomously without the possibility of reception on the carrier.

          This is no longer a jamb. This is it:

          If from the very beginning it was clear that the dimensions of the hull of the switchgear could not be changed - what then, when ordering the boat, the dimensions were not given as the main parameters? Like, do what you want, but fit into the hull of the boat with such a length, width and height.

    Yeah ... and then it turns out that only 1 person studied the equipment on the ship - and he went on vacation. And the officer replacing him did not read the documentation - he and in his department of affairs above the roof. And to report this ... well, why should the commander receive a hat - it is better to dump everything on equipment.
    There was already a similar picture - in Kamchatka with the “Venom”.
    According to the plan of the operation, agreed at all levels, Venom was supposed to work at the antenna station. Nobody planned to lower the “prize” under water. Unless in the backup version. True, as the head of the expedition knew before going out to sea, all the regular Venoma operators who went through a special training course were on vacation. However, no one paid due attention to this fact at the stage of preparation for the operation. They put on board a poorly trained specialist - and forward, towards the exploits ...
    “Nobody prevented the Pacific from contacting the management and reporting the absence of full-time operators,” says Rear Admiral Vasily Vorobyev, head of the Navy's Search and Rescue Operations Department. - Without any special problems, we could send specialists from the 328th rescue squad to them. We have trained operators in the 40th State Research Institute of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. Ultimately, there are pros in the "industry." Any of them could insure their Pacific colleagues. But the local bosses, so to speak, “hesitated” to disturb us and relied on their own strength. As a result, at an early stage of the deep-sea operation, the Venom was killed ...

    Instead, the Venom sent an AS-28 - with a known result.

I understand for rescue operations, but for a ship, albeit a minesweeper. In order to be sure of the "loyalty" of this complex, it is necessary to completely disassemble, study it.

    To make everything normal, you need to buy or design for a specific carrier ship. This BEC should rise and descend from the board of the minesweeper (as planned by the project). But since, due to the considerable size not provided for the project 12700 minesweeper, the BEC Inspector Mk 2 cannot go directly aboard, of course everything will be bad. In addition, no one has ever bought these boats from this company. Russia is the first. Well, that got raw and not intended for 12700. Money down the drain.
    during the International Naval Salon "the boat was at the base, performing tasks to protect it"

    so can he guard the base ??
    The Inspector Mk 2 crewless boat is a mine control system controlled from a carrier ship. In the bow, an active GAS mine search on a retractable mast (mine search depth up to 10 m, including anchor), towed GOW side view TOWSCA (mine search at depths of 10 - 100 m, including objects at the bottom).
    It is also equipped with various remotely controlled underwater vehicles for the search and destruction of mines. Effective range up to 10 km from the carrier ship.
    Question: how can he guard the base? by what means, weapons? And what is the range from the carrier ship? Those. Is he walking with the AI ​​on its own and guarding it?

    In general, there was information that the minesweepers of the 12700 project would be equipped with Russian unmanned boats to develop the Typhoon consortium. Well, where are these products?
