First and classified. The British Navy received an unmanned mine sweeper


The military department does not disclose the name of the boat, but also keeps the volume of purchases secret. It is known that £ 13 million was spent on the development of the first operating model, and the full-scale deployment of the unmanned system will occur next year.

This autonomous minesweeper brings us closer to taking our crews out of danger and allowing us to safely clear sea routes of explosives, be it trade support in global waters and around the coast of Great Britain or the protection of our ships and shores. High-tech design, easily transported by road, sea and air, means that a small team can use the system within a few hours after its arrival at the theater of military operations.
- told Guto Bebb, the head of the department of military purchases of the Ministry of Defense of Great Britain.

The military department indicates that the unmanned minesweeper successfully passed a series of tests in which it confirmed all the declared characteristics for detecting mines and targeting them. This is the first British surface drone fleet, and depending on the success of its operation, the British Navy will make further decisions on the purchase of such systems.

    I don’t know what he was going to trawl there, but he looked like an ordinary pleasure boat.

        Most likely they were mistaken, not unmanned, but useless.

          let German mines trawl, since WWII, it’s safer for us to walk past the island.

      Well, in comparison with the state of the mine-sweeping fleet of Russia, this is even very good.

        And what does not suit you ave. 12700 code "Alexandrite"? It can even be a "squadron" of combat vehicles, and this rattle is a maximum of combat vehicles.
        Secondly, how is it managed? If they are driven by AI, there are no questions! Even the German "troika" will turn sour ... But if on the radio channel - consider that you no longer have it.
        Thirdly, what kind of drones does he carry? Searchers-destroyers or only underwater TLV? And then, heroic divers will destroy the products he has worn on the ground? - Then fire: for hydrodynamic shocks, climb under the water yourself!
        Looking at this picture, I had a clear idea of ​​its radius of action ... Therefore, after working out the area, our submariners again sow the water area with self-transporting clever women, remotely controlled, with a hefty pile of anti-track devices of urgency, multiplicity, channelity for dezh and combat modes and etc.
        But nothing, the picture is beautiful. bully

          And what you do not like pr.12700 code "Alexandrite"?

          Not happy with the number of ships commissioned and the pace of construction.
          Now the Russian Federation has practically no minesweepers; the fleet can be locked in bases with simple mines. as during the Second World War.

      Colleague, hi Thank you for the video.
      But you, as a sailor, understand the raid essence of this rattle !? And the seaworthiness of this soap dish? What about mine action coordination? width of the worn strip? sweeping performance !? Or do they think only on a FVK string to walk? in wartime! Well, I don’t know: only I don’t stick in something, only the little shavens completely hold us for suckers !? (Minzag "Limbit" them in deadwood!) am

        And the seaworthiness of this soap dish?

        What seaworthiness? It’s not even a catamaran, it’s a punt on skegs.
        With a length of 12 meters and a side height of one and a half meters, respectively, in terms of seaworthiness, this is a small vessel of the second class. (Believe me, I understand the small sizes.) This suggests that it is a minesweeper for working inside and the immediate vicinity of port water areas.
        Rђ RІRѕS, For fishing I wouldn’t refuse this (although I have not much less) - it is planing, with an open cockpit, low side, lightweight, WATERFLY, and even if you believe in unmanned vehicles, with a built-in motor guide !!! - give two ...

        ... the raid essence of this rattle is clear! ...

        hi ... How a mobile search engine sensor will come down ... Well, you can hang an electric fishing rod (from saboteurs) laughing

        ... For "Obukhov" (bypassing sanctions) such a "Frenchman" took / Inspektor Mk2 / - then it makes sense (some kind) hi
        As the press secretary of the Sredne-Nevsky Shipbuilding Plant Alexander Malakhov told FlotProm, the Inspektor Mk2 BEC (see photo) is planned to be installed only on the Alexander Obukhov ship. It follows that the remaining three mine minesweepers of Project 12700, which are planned to be built at the Shipyard, will be equipped with crews of a different model.
        It can accommodate a variety of medium-sized DSSs (towed side-scan sonar) to provide a highly accurate image of the bottom surface. LARS (start and rescue system) includes an automatic depth mode and an automatic obstacle avoidance device. Using internal sensors in conjunction with the Ultra-Short Baseline (USBL) positioning system, real-time towed side-scan sonar, 3D positioning and sonar data are geo-localized and timed.

        Sorry for the translation repeat did not correct hi

          And all your examples - they are in order to trawl, here is one even open. And on this you can roll up heifers and spread them aft (sunbathe - do not think that). repeat

    The idea itself is not bad: sailors (like a soldier ...) should be protected, if possible ... But .... to "carry" this "scumbag" after itself? No. Will the ship be on the "hump" (that is, on the deck) of another large ship? I am presenting another business proposal: a "habitable" minesweeper (base, "womb") + drones with "test gadgets" to detect, track, destroy, neutralized
    Iya (if necessary ...) mines and ... various "suspicious" items. As an option, I can offer unmanned mini-boats that are lowered from a minesweeper (bases, uterus) equipped with "gadgets" for ...... see above. At the request of a solvent customer, any of the 2 options is possible. bully as well as a combination .... yes
