Russian minesweepers will equip with domestic marine drones

22
Russian minesweepers will arm them with domestic mine development drones. Complex "Diamond" allows seafarers to neutralize barriers from a safe distance without using the usual trawls, according to News.




It is reported that "Diamond" was a replacement for the French crewless system, which was originally planned to be installed on the 12700 project minesweepers.

According to the newspaper, referring to the Navy Commander-in-Chief, drone tests have already been completed. The first set became part of the mine-control equipment of the minesweeper "Alexander Obukhov" in the Baltic Fleet.

“The minesweeper carries on board two small unmanned boats. Upon arrival in a given area they are lowered into the water. Thanks to the plastic case and the low-noise engine, these devices are "uninteresting" to land mines. But the boats themselves can easily detect mines using the onboard hydro-acoustic station, magnetometers and other onboard equipment, ”the material says.

In turn, the boats are equipped with compact remote-controlled submersible sappers, resembling small short torpedoes. These devices are designed to destroy various types of mines.

Boats can operate at a distance of up to 10 km from the minesweeper, detecting and clearing mines at a depth from 10 to 100 meters.

In the past, mines were cleared by a trawl that was towed by a ship. To hook mine mine trawl, you have to go directly above it. It is very dangerous, even despite the plastic hulls of modern minesweepers and sophisticated degaussing systems. Unmanned Diamants will find and destroy mines without jeopardizing the ship and its crew,
told the naval expert Dmitry Boltenkov.

He added that all the leading maritime powers are very serious about the development of anti-mine forces.

Due to their relative cheapness, sea mines remain very popular and widespread. weapons. These products are constantly being improved, they even receive the rudiments of artificial intelligence. With mass use, they can significantly complicate the actions of even the most powerful fleet, especially in the coastal zone. To prevent this, we need modern minesweepers,
The expert noted.

        and replaced so as not to sting. Import substitution. Previously, they planned the Nata technique - because the analogue was not ready.

        With these sanctions, everyone just accelerated.

          Are there any details on this Diamond? Whose development, where is the production?
          And then you never know, a sticker on the new Frenchman was stuck, and here is the import substitution ...

    what a wacky habit of military sailors - to litter with mines, not to be honest - to shoot each other out of guns!

      The times of “knightly fights”, alas, are forever gone. Sea mine, she is a vile lady, but relatively cheap and effective. What else do you need for weapons? Cheapness and efficiency ... such is the economy of war. The mathematics of war.

    It’s forever like this for us: without magic PENDAL we do nothing. They banned the “Mistals” - they began to muddle-tinker - they drew projections, and they built every ersatz like “Twan Gren”. So with the cutters - the French did not give us - let's order them ... Already sometimes it infuriates ...

      Well ordered. Now let's wait. How many years. And so would have already been in the fleet. And in Syria would carry goods.

      It is difficult for Russia to build everything on its capacities. Not the ones that were about the Union. It would be cheaper and faster to order. But alas.

        That's right, they would buy Mistral and sit on the priest exactly, spit on the ceiling, and the French would, like fools, build, load shipyards, earn money for R&D ... We don’t care .... Are you seriously Ukrainian? or just without thinking frozen?

          would build, shipyards loaded


          we have no shipyards that are idle. Everything is clogged with state orders and we build a little, not because there is no order, but because we do not have time to do it faster

          This is for us


          we bought bulk carriers from turkey. And so we would have a good unit in the fleet, on which not only cargo can be carried but also Katrana

          But seriously, are you Ukrainian? or just without thinking frozen?


          even now I do not feel negative for you. I like your posts. I am Russian.

          The enemies of my state came up with Ukrainians. And they invented a flag for them. And their coat of arms is kind of dumb

    As far as I know, the first two minesweepers will be equipped with French "inspectors", because the latter have already been bought and delivered - where will they go now? Will they be sent back to France?

    It seems that the media indicated that the French drones "swelled" in size from the time of the contract to the embodiment in iron and did not suit the Navy, because they did not fit in the designated space on the deck.
    How did our sizes do something less? Or at the expense of performance.

    A correct and useful thing, at the same time to bow their heads to those who invented to put NATO.

    Good idea, by the way. And do not need any aircraft-carrying frigates. Use at least 100, at least 200 drones. And upon return - soft splashdown (in the image and likeness of the returned units of the US space complexes). Further, the selection of a ship with a trawl, if I understand the purpose of the ship correctly, and the thing is in the hat.
