Russia lays keel for fifth Project 12700 minesweeper

first_img Russia’s Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard held a keel-laying ceremony for the Russian Navy’s fifth Project 12700 minesweeper at its shipyard in St. Petersburg on December 26.By order of the Russian Navy chief Admiral Vladimir Korolev, the ship was named after the Soviet Union hero Yakov Balyayev.The vessel is scheduled to be launched and handed over to the fleet in 2019.The lead ship in this class of minesweepers, the ‘Alexander Obukhov’, has already entered service while the three following ships ‘George Kurbatov, ‘Ivan Antonov’ and ‘Vladimir Emelyanov’ are at different stages of construction.Project 12700 minesweepers have the largest fiberglass body in the world, according to the Russian defense ministry. A monolithic-fiberglass hull provides for greater survivability during mine countermeasure operations and weighs less than a low-magnetic steel hull.The ships displace 620 tons and measure 61 meters in length.Russia plans to build a total of 40 vessels in the class.Aleksandrit-class minesweeper Alexander Obukhov at sea.

France to build fifth nuclear Barracuda-class submarine

first_img French defense minister Florence Parly announced on May 4 that another Barracuda-class nuclear attack submarine was ordered for the French Navy.According to a defense ministry statement, the decision to order the fifth boat in the class was made during a defense ministry meeting on May 2.The new generation nuclear submarines are built by Naval Group under a framework contract signed with the French defense procurement agency (DGA) in December 2006.France’s 2019-2025 White Paper includes the construction of a total of six submarines in the class: Suffren, Duguay-Trouin, Tourville, Dupetit-Thouars, Duquesne and De Grasse.Suffren, the lead boat in the class, was initially expected to be delivered to the navy in 2017 but current predictions say the submarine will be delivered in 2020, some three years late.Barracuda-type SSNs will replace the six Rubis-class boats currently in service. The Barracuda weapons payload will include next-generation type F21 heavyweight torpedoes, SM39 anti-ship missiles and MdCN-type naval cruise missiles. The boats will also be fully equipped for missions with NATO naval forces and special operations.In addition to funding the procurement of another Barracuda-class submarine, the defense ministry announced the launch of the development phase of the Tiger Mk III attack helicopter modernization program which will ensure the Tiger weapons system operational capability beyond 2040.
