The third and second serial. In St. Petersburg, the minesweeper "Ivan Antonov" was launched

The third (second serial) fiberglass minesweeper project 12700 "Ivan Antonov" solemnly launched at the Middle Nevsky shipbuilding plant in St. Petersburg.

The third and the second serial. The minesweeper "Ivan Antonov" was launched in St. Petersburg

Today is a significant day, the launch of the ship "Ivan Antonov". The plant entered the second century with new technologies. Together we are modernizing the plant and getting new results ... Antonov was awarded the title of Hero of the USSR in 22, this is a good example for us how to work and love our Homeland
- said the general director of the plant Vladimir Seredokho.

It was noted earlier that the mine defense ships of the 12700 project will form the basis of the mine-sweeping forces of all fleets.

The minesweepers Alexandrite of the 12700 project are designed by the Almaz Central Metallurgical Bureau.

The marine base minesweeper "Ivan Antonov" is the third and second serial ship of this type. The contract for its construction was signed with the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation in April 2014. It was laid at the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard on January 25, 2017. The ship is planned to be transferred the fleet this year.

Minesweepers of the 12700 project are able to use the latest hydroacoustic stations located both on the ship itself and on remote-controlled and autonomous underwater vehicles, and they have an automated mine action control system. Able to use traditional and traditional weapons. The ships of the Alexandrite series have a unique hull made of monolithic fiberglass, formed by vacuum infusion.

The lead ship of the 12700 project, Alexander Obukhov, is already performing tasks as part of the Russian Navy, the following four ships (George Kurbatov, Ivan Antonov, Vladimir Emelyanov, and Jacob Balyaev) are at different stages of construction.

      Yes, I would also like to ask how long it takes to make one ship, because the hull is being built using the new vacuum infusion technology, and what is the cruising range, can it sail to Syria without refueling?

        Will he be able to sail to Syria without refueling?

        From Novorossiysk to Tartus, the sea is about 2500 miles. See above TTX minesweeper. hi

    Minesweepers underestimated hard workers, as I read the statistics of post-war clearance, that’s where the heroes are !!

    Minesweepers of the Alexandrite type, in conjunction with underwater robots, Galtel type mine seekers, multiply the efficiency of the ships. Moreover, BPPA Galtel is already undergoing trial operation in Syria

        The commentator kills with his primitiveness and dullness of speech and behavior, copying Western commentators .. To apply for programs of infancy, and even if it is not suitable for its boorish and thoughtless behavior, primitive statements would still come in handy ... There was no patience to listen to stupidities and the same stupid behavior .. .

    Is it not dangerous to make a ship’s hull of fiberglass? Indeed, in case of fire, very harmful substances can be released.

      But he does not magnetize, this is the most important thing for him. And plastic is most likely not combustible.

        Nevertheless, the Kurbatov corps was burnt out. Moreover, so that the descent second and first serial Ship pr. 12700 moved as far back as 2019.

      You can think of a magnet tree .. A pleasure yacht made of plastic, I agree, but a warship is far from the best option. Money, yes, eats more during the construction, that's why they pushed this project. And so a tree with fiberglass gluing or just gluing with epoxy. There is such a material Durakor.-rails in fiberglass pasting. Minesweepers always made of wood.

        Fiberglass does not rot and does not swell in water.

          I agree, but for a warship this is not quite suitable material. The fire at Kurbatov showed the essence of this phenomenon. What will happen to plastic in case of fire.

    Hooray! seven feet under the keel! Minesweepers are very necessary!
