Aleksandrit class minesweeper (Project 12700) is a new Russian minesweeper class being constructed for the Russian navy. The first ship was laid down on September 22, 2011 and was launched in June 2014. A total of 4 ships are planned to be constructed. The ship's hull is made of monolithic fiberglass and shaped by vacuum infusion which gives it advantage in minesweeping.
