Project 12660 Rubin seagoing minesweepers are a pair of minesweepers built for
the Soviet and later Russian navies in the 1980s. Twenty ships of the class were
planned, though only three were laid down. Of the three vessels, two were completed
and one was cancelled by the collapse of the Soviet Union.
The ships are
designed for deep ocean sweeping of captor mines with sophisticated mine detection
equipment. Sweeping gear includes two submersibles as well as conventional sweeps.
Minesweeper Zheleznyakov laid down 28 February 1985 at the Sredne-Nevsky Shipyard,
Pontonny (yard No.56), launched 17 July 1986, commissioned 30 December 1988.
