Russian Navy Soon to Lay Its New Generation Vessel


Sredne-Nevskiy Shipyard will hold a ceremonial laying of the Russian Navy’s new generation mine countermeasures vessel on April 24.

The vessel, which will carry the name Georgiy Kurbatov, will have a displacement of about 900 tons, a length of 61 meters, and a width of 10 meters.

It will be able to reach a maximum speed of 16.5 knots and carry a crew of 44 people. The ship has a high maneuverability due to the use of effective combination of various thrusters and enhanced comfort conditions for the crew.

The lead ship of the project 12700 Obukhov was launched in June 2014 and is currently being tested.
