    [size=16]The Russian Navy expects to receive 40 minesweepers of the project 12700 by 2030[/size]

    The third newest ship of the Vladimir Emelyanov series will be launched before the end of the second quarter of 2019

    This was announced on Tuesday by the commander-in-chief of the Navy, Admiral Vladimir Korolev, at a meeting on surface shipbuilding.

    "Serial construction of mine defense ships is carried out within the framework of the development and re-equipment of mine-trawling forces of the Navy. Until 2030, the Russian Navy plans to have about 40 ships of the PMO project 12700," he said

    Earlier, Vladimir Tryapichnikov, head of the shipbuilding department of the Russian Navy, said that the fleet expects to receive 40 fiberglass trawlers of the project 12700 by 2030–2050.

    The displacement of ships of this project is 890 tons, length - 62 meters, width - ten meters, crew - 44 people.

    Minesweppers are very important in narrow and congested hostile seas surrounding Russia. Minefield cutting of BF and BSF mustn't be an option.

    I guess they solved the last problems with the fiberglass hulls and can now accelerate their production.

    They say that they can produce 3 ships per year, and that full production cycle including trials is 2,5 years.

    СНСЗ уже законтрактовал семь "Александритов", рассказал в февральском интервью Mil.Press FlotProm гендиректор предприятия Владимир Середохо. Он добавил, что сегодня завод способен строить три тральщика в год. При этом цикл строительства сократили с учетом испытаний до 2,5 лет.

    What problems? The fire?

    I thought the main issue is the question of the drone boat since the French one seems to be a bit iffy in capability, too big to be carried onboard & anyway in need of import substitution.

    The 40 number has been floating around for a while.

    Well by 2025 they are probably going to have all the replacement Corvette sized ships they need, so there should be plenty of small shipyard building capacity by then.

    Plus minesweepers have some serious electronics on board but in terms of vessels they are not super complex...

    I don't see them being built elsewhere given it uses a huge mould & infusion gear.

    With "problems" I meant the quality and speed of the work. You have to be very careful when forming the hull with that stuff (no bubbles and so on).

    Maybe they start making hulls that can be towed to other yards to be completed.

    Aleksandrit-ISPUM anti-mine drone http://charly015.blogspot.com/2019/05/robot-de-desminado-para-los-dragaminas.html
    Pics look like a show model rather than prototype or production
    Project 12700 Minesweeper thread - Page 4 05-5157233-aleksandrit-ispum

    According to http://tass.com/defense/1057943 these are already on both 1st & 2nd, being delivered to 3rd with orders for 6 (unclear whether that includes the first 3 or in addition to them) and looking at adding to older mine-sweepers in refits.

    Can't seem to find any info on what capabilities it has dunno
