    Indian Navy released an RFI (last month) for the outright purchase or lease of 3-5 Mine Countermeasure Vessels (MMCV).

    Indian Navy is a former operator of the Natya class (Project 266M) known here in India as the Pondicherry-class minesweeper.

    Russian Navy is also modernizing its mine warfare capabilities with the Alexandrite-class (project 12700) mine counter measure vessel. The second-hand MCM vessels that India seeks may therefore come from Russia.

    Strange that only one ship so far has ended up in the Baltic Fleet.

    The newest mine defense ship "Vladimir Yemelyanov" arrived at its permanent base in Sevastopol, having made the transition from the Baltic Fleet to the Black Sea Fleet, the press service of the Black Sea Fleet said on Monday.
