Indian Navy may be replenished with Russian naval minesweepers "Alexandrite"


According to the portal, Russia made an offer to India to build minesweepers during a recent visit by Indian Defense Minister Rajnat Singh to Moscow. Details of the possible agreement are not known, but it is reported that, if signed, India will be able to build an export version of the minesweeper of the 12701 Alexandrite-E project at its shipyards. These marine mine action ships will need to replace Pondicherry type ships in the Indian Navy 12.

The publication does not exclude that New Delhi will agree with Moscow, as it is in dire need of sea minesweepers.

The Russian 890-ton minesweeper is designed to provide mine protection for naval bases, coastal marine areas, detect and destroy mines of all kinds, provide mine protection for ships, exclusive economic zones, conduct mine reconnaissance, and also for laying minefields. Its body is made of monolithic fiberglass formed by vacuum infusion. The lightweight fiberglass hull of these ships is the largest in the world, offering the best protection against corrosion, long service life and service life.

The armament of this ship can be an automatic 30-mm gun AK-306, 8 PU MANPADS and heavy machine gun weapons. Cruising range - 1500 nautical miles, speed up to 16 knots, autonomy up to 10 days, crew - 44 people.

The minesweeper can be equipped with Alister 9 autonomous underwater vehicles of the French company ECA Group, K-STER C lightweight disposable anti-mine vehicles and Inspector-MK2 unmanned surface vehicles for searching and clearing mines without entering the minesweeper itself into the danger zone

- stated in the material.

    Russia has offered India the transfer of mine construction technology for this project

    Yeah, it's like our Lukashenko - at first he opened a joint factory for the production of tractors in Belarus on the territory of the countries where they were supplied, but now he is surprised that they are not buying. )))
    So why buy if you yourself built a factory there? )))
    It seems that Russia is on the same rake ....

        Does the Russian Navy need minesweepers? The admirals themselves shout that the situation with the trawlers is "awful".

      BMW, Mercedes and other well-known companies produce their cars in Russia.
      This is not a rake, but a business organized in this way.
      It doesn’t work differently, at least in sales of Indian equipment.
      You can certainly not work on this scheme.
      Then work and make a profit, having occupied this market niche, there will be others.

        Are you opening a BMW / Mercedes screwdriver assembly plant from a full-cycle plant and with the transfer of technology can you tell? )))

      His mistake is that enterprises are still in state ownership, and the market capacity of countries has not been studied.
      After all, sales managers don’t go to enterprises, fields, gardens, don’t offer potential customers their equipment. They just sit in warm, summer condos, cozy offices for salaries and a cup of coffee indulge in and look at those who apply for the purchase of equipment and spare parts as flawed, I didn’t miss another word .. Their life was a success.

      This is not a rake. This is a tough requirement of the Indians at all their tenders, without which you can simply fly past the contract. For 20 years they have been buying weapons only under the condition of partial or complete transfer of technology and partial production inside India.

      Well, besides the Indians, no one offered to buy them. There is definitely nothing to lose. And for production, we need components that will come from the Russian Federation. Plus license deductions. And the needs of Alexandrites in Russia are high - there are definitely enough plans for a 10-year period, or even more. For good, you need to change all 40 minesweepers available to them. And the capabilities of the SSC allow for the delivery of approximately 2 units per year. Th even for 20 years should be enough.

    -The minesweeper can be equipped with ... K-STER C ...
    Interestingly, "Alexander Obukhov" also had to be equipped with this French mine search system (search K-STER I and mine destroyers K-STER C), which came under sanctions.
    Found a replacement?

      So they said directly at the "Military Acceptance" "the device is not ours, but we have already developed our own", though only about one (!), They kept silent about two more. Even if they are Russian, only God knows how many imported components there are.))

        Alex, what will they put on the Alatau road minesweeper being built for Kazakhstan?
        And the French, in addition to supplying equipment (under an agreement), undertook to supply documentation for the production of the system in Russia.

          The country of the manufacturer was not even named, they only hinted at the "legacy of the Mistrals".)) And nothing about the documentation is completely silent ...

      EMNIP, the French "Inspector" was stuck on "Obukhov". Which "unmanned vehicle" does not fit on the minesweeper itself. sad

    Our fleet is sorely lacking minesweepers ... like the rest of the types of ships. We cannot sell the ships to the Indians ourselves, but we can sell the construction technology ... This sale has nothing to do with our aircraft, nor with our shipbuilding, because all the money will dissolve in the USC and holdings more thinly. The plant will only receive orders to prepare, collect and send documentation for the same salary.
    Another piece of news that the main success in life is to sell something!

    Russian minesweepers with a Frenchman sounds good.

    Unfortunately, we ourselves cannot produce in the required quantities. Production capacities are not enough. And he wants money. It is necessary to sell something other than gas, oil and electricity.

    About 3 years ago, a mine of defense stated that we needed about 60 minesweepers.

    * Russia proposed to India the transfer of mine construction technology for this project. *
    Why transfer technology?! .. Kind people.
    Then the thought dawns that there are more advanced technologies in the country! But I don’t know anything about them ...
    Here UA- was firmly condemned, (including myself) that they, along with * Bison *, sold the technology of the same welding of AMg, AMts in an argon atmosphere. But, then from total lack of money. And then what? ..
    Although for the export of ships and ships, the loading of plants with orders, I with both remaining hands are categorically!

    We don’t have enough engines for our minesweepers, what will the Indians put? The project to process under foreign diesel engines? But it will be another ship.
