As the news portal Flotpromreferring to the source, the ongoing negotiations between the Russian Federation and India concerning the construction of the minesweepers of the 12701 Alexandrite-E project are close to completion.



"Alexander Obukhov" project 12700 "Alexandrite"


Delhi is exploring the possibility of acquiring this type of minesweeper to 10, some of which will be built at Indian shipyards. In 2015, the ongoing negotiations with the Indian side, which had the intention to organize the licensed production of Alexandrite, were reported.

In comparison with the minesweepers intended for the Russian Navy, the export version has a new tank shape and a bulwark that is designed to increase the ship’s seaworthiness.

India approached 10 order for Alexandrite type minesweepers

Project 12701 "Alexandrite-E"


The ships of the Alexandrite project have the largest hull of monolithic fiberglass in the world, formed by vacuum infusion. Replacing steel with this material led to an increase in service life and a decrease in the mass of the structure while maintaining its strength.

The project provides for the formation of a mine control circuit using the latest, highly efficient sonar stations located both on the ship itself and on remote-controlled and autonomous underwater vehicles. At the same time, the ship can be equipped with traditional sweeping armament. With a displacement of about 890 tons, the Alexandrite accelerates to the 16,5 node. The main purpose of the ship is to search and destroy mines in the waters of naval bases.

    Question. Will we give the technology back to the Indians? It's like selling crude oil instead of gasoline. No, I understand everything .... But we conclude contracts with technology transfer so much with India ......

      Well, firstly. Part of the ships is being built with us. Secondly, if there will be production in India, then it will be licensed. There is not a word about technology transfer in the article. The hull can be made with us. By the way, what kind of engine is the minesweeper? Chinese?

        Firstly.

        My stinging five cents ....
        And remember - in 90, only the dead did not laugh at the fact that Zhirik blurted out. Like, our soldiers will wash their boots in the Indian Ocean ....
        After all, they will wash the boys - even if they are not boots, I don’t know what they have there, not the seaman, but they rinse something?

      Here is the key word, we won’t give it away, but we will sell it if that is! If we sell, it means we have better, not one you are so smart! There is not a comic struggle for the Indian market, we have long-standing traditional relations that cannot be lost! Here colleagues with the American flag wrote that we are losing the indian market, let's see wink

        For the Indian market is not a comic struggle

        And the Indians are well aware of this, so every time they put forward conditions for the transfer of technology. And they often engage in outright blackmail (possible waiver of the contract) under various pretexts. In a word, business.

      If they want 10 stigmas - then the matrix too. Although there is a question with autonomous devices. The one that was planned doubled from the project laid down in the calculation of the stigma to the serial product. As a result, he doesn’t interfere, only towing, with all the restrictions.

      The first ships cannot be changed already, for they are cast, and the construction feature plays a bad role here. For the body itself can no longer be changed if cast. And in order to change something, it is necessary to sort through the matrix, and this is long and expensive.

        Yes, they did. I didn’t understand one thing - whose jamb turned out to be. And by the way, I can’t find a photo where this device is moored to the stern of Obukhov. And recently there were ... request

    The case is lightweight and durable. The problem will be with patching holes in it. Welding will not help.

      On the contrary, it’s easier to repair. Plus, the case itself is actually eternal. Problems will only be with extensive damage, they did not see the level of the cargo ship and broke the board. Then yes. Trouble. But there, already everyone will have trouble.

      Judging by the profile picture, are you related to Gazprom? Then why ask questions with an obvious answer?

    The lowered contours of the bow of the hull were initially puzzling. Correctly the Indians demanded to raise the tank on the stem, less will dig into the wave. But the bulwark is probably superfluous.

    It seems like the Indians constantly get into a pose and begin to look towards the Americans. French, etc. And then, somehow modestly, they again sign an agreement with the Russians. Apparently, our military merchants learned not to respond to the "Eastern Bazaar" and Hare Krishna street concerts.

    But how did the Indians realize it. To what extent it is still a malicious nation, then give-sell, another third. The brains themselves do not have enough, and hands are not growing from that place. It’s somehow better to jump on vines!
