    Still, how correctly the name of the minesweeper sounds - Belyaev, as in the title, or Balyaev, as in the text.
    P. S. Good luck

      the minesweeper “Yakov Belyaev” is named after the Hero of the USSR Sergeant Yakov Dmitrievich Belyaev

      Yakov Belyaev was born on March 15, 1918 in the village of Pikhalevo (now does not exist, until 1964 was part of the Zavolzhsky district of the Ivanovo region) in a peasant family. He worked at a construction site in Kineshma.
      In September 1938, Belyaev was called up for service in the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army. He took part in the Soviet-Finnish war, was awarded the medal "For Courage". Since the beginning of World War II, he was at the front
      Sergeant Yakov Belyaev commanded an armored car of the 69th separate reconnaissance battalion of the 100th Rifle Division of the 20th Army of the Western Front. He distinguished himself in the first battles with German troops. On June 25, 1941, in the vicinity of the village of Ostroshitsky Gorodok in the Minsk region of the Minsk region of the Belorussian SSR, an armored car crew destroyed a German tank and three motorcycles. During subsequent battles, the crew of the armored vehicle under the command of Sergeant Belyaev was part of the cover detachment, which provided the withdrawal of the 100th Infantry Division
      On July 6, 1941, in a battle near the villages of Gibailovichi (now Znamenka) and Somra, the Belyaev’s crew destroyed 4 enemy vehicles with infantry in them. On July 7, in the area of ​​the village of Somra, Minsk region, the crew took an unequal battle with 7 German tanks and armored cars with infantry. Belyaev destroyed the tank and the all-terrain vehicle, but his armored car was also knocked out. Until the ammunition ran out, Belyaev continued to fire from a burning car. He was buried near the village of Somry, Krupsky district, Minsk region. In 1961, the remains of Belyaev and his comrades were transferred to the Krupka district center
      By decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of August 31, 1941 for “exemplary performance of command missions at the front of the struggle against Nazi invaders and shown courage and heroism”, Sergeant Yakov Belyaev was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union (posthumous)

          He entered into the search engine a question: in honor of whom the minesweeper "Yakov Belyaev" is named. Yandex issued this result. In any case, the minesweeper bears the name of the hero of the USSR who gave his life for his homeland. Eternal memory to both Yakov Belyaev - both the soldier and the sailor

    All this is certainly wonderful. But what kind of military specialty is this? I know the machine gunner, I know the assistant machine gunner. I don’t know the gunner of the light machine gun.

    Great. They wrote that we have few minesweepers. But here's a question: if you attach a cable to a helicopter, I don’t know, "Zaporozhets" and they sweep the water area, will it work? Will tear it apart with a mine, attach the "Oka", and so on ...

    like a spoon, the whole workshop occupied.
    waiting for the cons; and from the censor.
    After all, "a small spoon ..." is trolling and the use of forbidden turns of the Russian language, and it will be clear who drank the whole of Russia - everyone is measuring with glasses, not spoons.
