    Mine clearing system? On water?

    Holy shit, what's the game plan here?


    You put mines on the beach to counter landing force. You can deploy them also in the shallow water where the vehicles will touch the ground.

    Very high speed clearing of lanes where vehicles like BTR-82s can drive up the beach without having to worry about mine rollers etc.

    You can expect a lot of mines near any suspected landing spot for the Naval Infantry.

    Well actually before they land they will send recon forces to find the best locations for landing and if they find a prepared defence then they will likely choose somewhere else to land.

    Some times there is not a wide range of choice, but with the new ships and helicopters and presumably hovercraft they are developing they could certainly land in places not suitable for boats and move inland in a bit of depth and then move down the coastline and attack a port from land and sea to land troops and equipment... the VDV could cooperate by seizing an airfield nearby that could start landing forces too...

    Not many countries in peace time could get away with mining their best shallowest beaches, and as shown if they do then landing ships with mine clearance charges can be used to very rapidly clear the way.

    The biggest problem with mines on a beach is that the tide often moves them... which makes it a real bastard to manage when you are walking down what you think is a clear zone and boom.

    Of course modern mine systems use two way communication so you can turn them on and off... turn them off and let the enemy land partially and then turn them on and hit them with an airburst artillery barrage that wont destroy any mines and let them try to escape over the mines... all sorts of nasty games can be played.... of course the Russians would just launch Bereg and BAL and Bastion at the ships as they approach the coast along with Kinzhal from MiG-31Ks...
