    I wonder if the side of the ship of this project can withstand a shot from a 14.5 mm machine gun?

      And why for the anti-mine ships of the base zone protection from a machine gun shot?

          No, it won't. Basic minesweepers, wooden or plastic

      It’s not like a minesweeper’s — it’s not going to stand up to any non-armored ship.

    Only a few days ago in one of the articles on VO there was "Yaroslavna's cry" about the absence of modern minesweepers. Here is another modern minesweeper built ... Thought is material ...

      I would not call it modern in terms of mine action

      Read that article carefully. And also other articles for 12700.
      In short, the construction of 12700 does not solve the problem of the absence of modern TSCs due to the fact that the anti-mine weapons of these TSCs do not meet modern requirements.

    Such a plastic case looks much nicer than a metal one.
    One problem, in case of overshoot, not every shipyard will carry out repairs.
    Moreover, not everyone ...

    Three are in the ranks, two are preparing for testing, one for the descent, two are under construction. It seems like one is preparing for the bookmark, for three more contracts have been signed.
    A lot of? Few? The opinion of the hydromayor, of course, is valuable, but there are others? But you can't really hear them.
    Who will interpret the land boot - where is the truth?

      In total, 2 per fleet, and it's also good if everyone is constantly ready and not to be repaired, or in anticipation of it (breakdowns happen, there is no getting around it). In theory, not enough.

        It seems that 12 were planned. It turns out - three per fleet.
        With regard to the Federation Council, this means: one - in Gadzhievo, one - in Polyarny, one - under repair. The rest ... No tsh, but you hold on.
