Vlasov said that the ships that will be supplied to Kazakhstan, "is fundamentally different from those that were built for the Navy of the Soviet Union and Russia." "Basically, it comes standard equipment, which is almost all imported. Thus, the main power plant, at the request of Kazakhstan, is German, sonar system — the French intended for mine reconnaissance and mine destruction, "- said the deputy director of the plant.
Answering the question of whether foreign equipment in these minesweepers prevails over the Russian, Vlasov said that "the trawlers will have our body, our propulsion system, meaning there will be standing domestic steering columns, thrusters, and most importantly — it will be installed Russian automated control system for Mine Action. "
"So — he concluded — the most important element of the ship — weapons — will be Russian."
However, he confirmed that he intended for the Navy minesweepers Kazakhstan will have a large number of foreign equipment, mostly French company "IKA-Robatiks"[Meaning the ECA Robotics — bmpd]."The choice was made in favor of the French, because the company has been supplying machines in general industrial use, and the resolution of NATO is not required, especially as the French do not have any obligations to NATO in this part," — said Vlasov.
"The fact is, almost raid trawler converted into a mine hunter: he will search for and discovery of mines using autonomous underwater vehicles, and the destruction of landmine detection will be carried out remotely from the ship underwater vehicles," — he said.
"At the same time the ship will serve traditional trawling using our trawls," — said Vlasov. Responding to a question, how many of these hunters mines Kazakhstan wishes to receive from Russia, a spokesman for the Mid-Nevsky Shipyard said, "One and a memorandum on the second. In 2015, we will have to take them first. "
