    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.

    Order of the commander of the naval minesweeper "Vladimir Yemelyanov", dated November 14, 2019, No. 245

    Despite the acute shortage of qualified personnel in the Navy of the Russian Federation, there are cases of unfair performance of their duties. So, as a result of simple but inept movements of Lieutenant Shapovalov Alexander Valeryevich, on November 14, 2019 at 6:30, Shapovalov's wife Eva Alexandrovna, instead of the future defender of the Motherland, gave birth to a girl, Evgenia - weighing 4 kilograms and 51 centimeters tall.
    I order you to congratulate Lieutenant Shapovalov Alexander Valeryevich on the birth of his daughter for the unscrupulous unperformance of his duties in manning and strengthening the glorious Russian Fleet. To throw Lieutenant Shapovalov Alexander Valeryevich overboard in the Baltic Sea; to give out 100 grams of vodka. In the future, consider him a bungler until correction. The order should be brought to all personnel, executed immediately.

    and

    Minesweepers (and other ships) in Sevastopol

    Nice pics... interesting they are still using the AK-230 twin barrel 30mm cannon on those ships.

    I would have thought an upgrade to a newer gun would have improved logistics and made supply and support easier because the old twin barrel AK-230 fires a different 30mm cartridge to the current guns used in the Navy and Air Force and Army.

    The new round is the 30 x 165mm, which is quite powerful, especially at 5,000 rpm in the 6 barrel gatlings, but the old AK-230 had a much more powerful 30 x 210B round that was more powerful than the 30mm round of the A-10... (30 x 173mm).
