    What's the point in making unmmanned patrol boat ? Patroling means checking. Most of the time you control fishers so you need manned crew to check documents.

    Patrolling for mines and demining. This is a "robot" boat to be used by the new 12700 minesweepers replacing the French model they presently use.

    So it carried by a mother ship. And how does it work for demining ? Does it carry some mini torpedo or depth charges ?

    If you read post number 134 on the previous page by George you would see a description of the french model this model is replacing.

    It is not a patrol vessel, it is a demining robot.

    Thanks I didn't saw it. So it's remote controled and can operate 10km from the mother ship.

    Most mine hunting ships are not metal... they are often GRP so having the mines explode a long way away from your boat is a good thing.. Smile

    BTW for those not familiar, GRP is glass reinforced plastic... a sheet of glass is very fragile, but form it into fine strands and it becomes a very strong light material like glass fibre.

    11 BK-10's and 6 Bk-16's under construction for the Navy. Another BK-16 has already been delivered for trials. These are fast assault craft for inshore patrols and assault landings. The number represents the number of combat troops each can carry. They can be carried by larger ships such as the 22160 and 23550 patrol ships. The BK-16 is a smaller version of the Raptor 03160.

    Vishnya-class Intelligence Ship Karelia rejoined the Russian Pacific Fleet

    The Dalzavod Ship Repair Center has completed the builders’ sea trials of the Karelia medium intelligence ship following comprehensive repair and retrofit. After that, it was handed over to the Pacific Fleet, Dalzavod’s press service reported to the online agency Flotprom.

    "The sea trials program has been successfully completed. The ship’s main propulsion plant, main units and mechanisms, navigation and communication equipment were tested during the sortie into the sea," said Dalzavod’s executive director Igor Evdokimov. "The ship rejoins the Pacific Fleet with the extension of the mean time to repair for five years."

    The ship Karelia had been mothballed for more than 10 years until January 2014 when Dalzavod started comprehensive repair and retrofit of the ship. In the process of recovering the ship’s technical readiness, the main engine, all units and mechanisms were repaired, and advanced navigation and communication equipment was installed. All the spaces of the ship were repaired and the the living conditions for the crew were improved substantially. Just like on the large landing ship Oslyabya, handed over to the fleet in the spring of this year, modern polymer coatings and painting techniques were applied during repair work.
