The sixth mine-sweeper of project 12700 "Alexandrite" was launched

62

Another mine defense ship (minesweeper) "Pyotr Ilyichev" of project 12700 "Alexandrite" was launched. The ceremony took place at the Sredne-Nevsky shipyard, the press service of the enterprise reports.


The Pyotr Ilyichev is the sixth Project 12700 Alexandrite minesweeper, laid down at the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard in July 2018. The transfer of the ship to the customer is scheduled for the summer of 2021, the ship will become part of the Pacific fleet.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Navy Nikolai Evmenov, who was present at the ceremony, said that this project had shown itself well and the construction of minesweepers would continue. So let's hope that the series of Project 12700 PMO ships will not be limited to 10 minesweepers as previously planned.

The sixth "Alexandrite" was named "Pyotr Ilyichev" in honor of the Hero of the Soviet Union, the Pacific Fleet sailor Pyotr Ivanovich Ilyichev, who closed the embrasure of the Japanese bunker on August 18, 1945 during the Kuril operation in the battles for the Shumshu island.

Minesweepers of the 12700 project are able to use the latest hydroacoustic stations located both on the ship itself and on remote-controlled and autonomous underwater vehicles, and they have an automated mine action control system. Able to use traditional and traditional weapons. The ships of the Alexandrite series have a unique hull made of monolithic fiberglass, formed by vacuum infusion.

The 12700 project was developed by the Almaz Central Marine Design Bureau for the Russian Navy. These mine defense ships have a displacement of about 890 tons, the length is 62 meters and the width of 10 meters, the crew has 44 man.

        This is, if very mildly.
        But if it is straightforward and tough - it is necessary to create modern automated systems for finding sea mines and combating them, they need to be created yesterday. This is where the problem lies, along with torpedo and anti-torpedo.

                The problem is that these systems have completely different barbets.
                It's not even about them, but the fact that the Shell M has a very impressive under-deck space. It is far from always possible so simply, if it was not thought out in advance, you will be able to organize it there ...
                In any case, this leads to a strong rework of the blueprints and a possible major change in the superstructure.
                Are such perturbations real on a specific project ... That is to think for the designers of these steamers.

                Pantsir-M eats up one combat module (tower) with an ammunition capacity of 7100 kg, plus the command module must be squeezed in. And the total displacement is only 890 tons. A bit cramped.

        No need to exaggerate, I don’t suggest anymore. Now everyone is working under air raids, remember at least Karabakh. At sea there will be the same situation. I proceed from the principle of protecting our sailors and soldiers by any means, not depending on the cost. This minesweeper is not a basic one, but a sea one. If I'm not mistaken. The radius of the Shell 40 km is a good umbrella. Nobody will let us clear mines in greenhouse conditions.

            The carapace even protects the lousy "bayraktar", in contrast to the "needle" and "willow". Leaving a ship of such a displacement, in fact, completely without air defense - well, that.

          But Carapace will not save the minesweeper if the enemy has overwhelming dominance at sea and in the air.

          But no one keeps minefields under the protection of destroyers and cruisers and aviation. They put mines mostly on the enemy's shores on the sly and directors quickly dump them from there. And, as a last resort, the protection of minesweepers can be organized without turning them into a warship armed to the teeth.

        Here the infantry was given a portable anti-aircraft complex - why? There is a normal air defense. So with a minesweeper, why not put an ultra-modern small-sized air defense system on a ship of a suitable displacement, whatever its purpose.

          These ships are already built slowly, and they cost a lot. Installing the Carapace will increase the cost and complexity of the project even more. But can one Shell be able to reliably protect the ship from the attack of two or three fighter-bombers?

          A multipurpose frigate, which should already be built in a large series for the fleet, or a specially designed highly specialized ship. How much money did it take to create a completely new project? Of course, a sea minesweeper is cheaper than a frigate, but you can't call it "cheap" either.

          Yes, enough. If you remember that this is a BASIC minesweeper.
          "Basic minesweeper - a class of special-purpose warships with a displacement of up to 500 tons, designed to search, sweep and destroy mines in the waters of naval bases and basing points, as well as in coastal areas (50 miles), escorting ships (vessels) through mines obstacles and minefields. "
          Now the question is - why does he need something more than MANPADS, if his main work is in the base? It should be borne in mind that the basing sites should be covered by aviation.

          As for the size, then the question is in the unification, tk. on the basis of this corps, it was supposed to make a series of patrol ships. It is there that you can put something more powerful from the air defense and it is not a fact that you need it).

          By the way, project 22800 has the same tonnage and the same dimensions and it has Pantsir-M, which can fight simultaneously with four targets, including anti-ship missiles

    Seven feet under the keel!
    As for the weapons, the minesweeper has the task of detecting and destroying mines, for this there is enough available. You should not make a multi-functional monster out of a ship designed to solve a certain range of tasks.

    In Soviet times, I was on business at the Sredne-Nevsky plant, at Pontonnaya. Then the small trawler of project 1258 "Corundum" was collected in Cuba. And I was even in the export team from the beginning.
    Well done for not "upsetting" people, equipment and technologies. And they glue ships with the name of the stones - "Corundum, Alexandrite, Sapphire, etc."

    I envy.
    And in our area ...
    Movement "Kometa" - the head for the installation of the wings today. The third launch of the A40 (the same one) today. Lord, when will he leave for Novorossiysk?! .. He has been there for a year and a half as he has to lay out the open spaces of the sea and install booms.
    Nightmare. We also have a second A40.
    By the way, and the second "Cometa".
