The new minesweeper "Yakov Balyaev" for the Pacific Fleet entered state tests

The newest minesweeper Yakov Balyaev, built for the Pacific Fleet, for the first time independently left the delivery base in Vladivostok and entered the factory sea trials, combined with state ones.

The minesweeper, which passed through the Northern Sea Route and arrived in Vladivostok on October 22 of this year, completed mooring tests and left the outfitting base of the Amur shipyard in the Golden Horn Bay, entering the Pacific Fleet test sites in the Sea of ​​Japan. The crew, together with the delivery team, will have to check the operability of the systems and mechanisms of the minesweeper at sea: the operation of the power plant, steering gear, auxiliary mechanisms, communication, detection and navigation equipment, anchor device. Shipboard tests will also take place. weapons.

The transfer of the minesweeper to the Pacific Fleet is planned before the end of the year.

Marine minesweeper "Yakov Balyaev" is the fourth serial (fifth in a row) ship, which was laid down on the stocks of the plant, however, due to a fire on the first serial minesweeper "Georgy Kurbatov", "Yakov Balyaev" became the fourth mine defense ship in the line of project 12700 "Alexandrite". Laid down on December 26, 2017, launched on January 29, 2020. Named in honor of the Hero of the Soviet Union, sailor, light machine gunner of the 355th separate battalion of the Pacific Marine Corps fleet Yakov Illarionovich Balyaev.

Project 12700 minesweepers are capable of using the latest hydroacoustic stations located both on the ship itself and on remote-controlled and autonomous underwater vehicles, and have an automated mine action control system. They are also capable of using traditional trawling weapons.

Displacement - 890 tons, length - 62 m, width - 10 m. Full speed - 16 knots, crew - 44 people.

    a bit of REALITY:
    What is wrong with the “newest” PMK of the 12700 project?
    At the same time, at the moment, our fleet has anti-mine UOA:
    - 4 TNLA (1 "Mayevka" and 3 STA ISPUM), while at the Pacific Fleet and Northern Fleet (where our NSNF are deployed) there is not a single, and "Mayevka" and STA ISPUM will be blown up by the very first "mine-defender"

        on the one hand - yes
        with another, now we need an EMERGENCY modernization of the PMK TOF
        namely, this was disrupted, and deliberately, under the "sign" of the "bright future" of project 12700 (with the concept of an anti-mine complex outdated for a quarter of a century)

    The first serial "Mayevki" were to receive MT-264 and MT-265 OKVS Pacific Fleet
    They were deleted from the state defense order (back in 2011).
    "Mayevka" is virtually destroyed.
    There are NO other PMO container complexes in the Navy.
    The modernization of the combat personnel of minesweepers was not just disrupted, but deliberately disrupted.

    but deliberately torn off.

    Directly and deliberately, you are more careful with such accusations, it smells like sabotage in the ruling environment. Most likely, as usual, out of thoughtlessness, Russian sloppiness, or out of unwise economy of funds. Or maybe some force majeure.

      And here we come to the essence of what was happening.
      First. Obvious negligent and unprincipled attitude of officials to ensure the real combat capability of the Navy. For example, today, Project 955 RPLSN "Alexander Nevsky" will enter combat service at OKVS (Kamchatka) by only two naval minesweepers, whose anti-mine armament corresponds to the western end of the 60s, and is unable to deal with modern bottom mines. At the same time, earlier "Mayevki" were planned primarily for Kamchatka, in support of "Boreyev" (they were excluded from the state defense order). In fact, today the Pacific Fleet's submarine missile launcher is deliberately not guaranteed. Everyone knows about it (including V.V. Chirkov). No measures.
      Second. One of the favorite occupations in our defense industry complex has become the "process" (not striving for the result), according to the principle "either donkey or padishah." Under these conditions, the very existence of a domestic complex ("Mayevka") that had successfully passed the tests and was developed in a given time and financed, caused a lot of negative feelings (and actions) among some defense industry workers.
      Third. "Personal aspects". For example, the person who blocked the registration of an advertising passport (and the export of Mayevoks) once took an oath, but could not put a sense of duty and deeds above personal petty grievances.
      Fourth. "Import". "Some time ago" it was "very fashionable" to borrow new models of military equipment in the West. I would like to emphasize that there is nothing wrong with that, for example, the purchase of a series, even of outdated western minesweepers-seekers, would be very useful for the fleet, because it is not only “new hardware”, but first of all “experience embodied in hardware” - experience (of modern mine action), which the Navy simply does not have. However, this should not be done at the cost of "crushing" successful domestic developments. In the situation with the new minesweepers, the situation was simple - almost everyone knew about the ISPUM problems, moreover, there were those who really hoped and counted on them - to replace ISPUM with a French complex.
      and further

      on "sausage"
      in the professional environment there are scabrous jokes - "Anyakh WANTS (" sausage ") and Dima WANTS too"
      Dima is Monsieur Benzoruk, the VrIO ZGKV of the Navy "hacked down" the series of "Mayevoks", and is destroying it today in the "Region" in the position of ZGD for R&D

        Well, if you know this, then others also know, and what, no one can knock on the horns of a stubborn ram? Is this an undermining of the defenses, or is he so omnipotent that they cannot approach? Some kind of nonsense turns out, where the naval ones just look.

          and MO? and "competent"?
          good questions?
          especially when, for example, inThe military prosecutor's office of the Northern Fleet disrupts its combat readiness in 2014-2015, demanding approval of the repair and modernization of the torpedo (including the NSNF) with ... Kiev (!!!)
          - and these are DOCUMENTALLY CONFIRMED FACTS, see my deleted article (about "3 dead" _

    It can be seen that it hurt. What is shown was designed for the first time 50 years ago. But, most importantly, something has appeared.
