Historical Classes

Mine clearance was originally done by whatever type of vessel could easily be adapted to the task. In both World Wars trawlers were employed (in WW II it was the smaller ones of around 300 tons, the larger ones were used for anti-submarine work).


The Royal Navy have had specialist mine countermeasure vessels for many years. The oldest that can currently be traced are the Pangbourne Class. Pangbourne Class Minesweepers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia /**/ @import /skins-1. ...

There were also some conversions of ships originally built for other purposes for special minesweeping. This was mainly early in WWII for sweeping of magnetic mines. The ships selected were of varying origin and age and thus do not form a class as such. Pangbourne Class Minesweepers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia /**/ @import /skins-1. ... The Halcyon Class minesweepers were oil-fired Fleet minesweepers built between 1933 and 1939, they numbered 21 in total. ... This article is incomplete but includes all of the currently available information. ... The Algerine class was a class of minesweepers of the Royal Navy and the Royal Canadian Navy. ... This article is incomplete but represents the best information currently available. ... This page is incomplete but represents the sum of currently available knowledge. ... German soldiers at the Battle of Stalingrad World War II was the most extensive and costly armed conflict in the history of the world, involving the great majority of the worlds nations, being fought simultaneously in several major theatres, and costing tens of millions of lives. ... Mine can refer to a number of things: Mines are tunnels used in mining for extraction of resources. ...


Aircraft may also be used for this purpose, and other countries have done so extensively. The only known use of aircraft by the United Kingdom were the modified Wellington bombers used in 1940/41. Their use revealed the limitations of the technique in that it only works effectively in very shallow water. The Vickers Wellington was a twin-engine, medium bomber designed in the mid-1930s at Brooklands in Weybridge, Surrey, by Vickers-Armstrongs Chief Designer, R.K. Pierson. ... A bomber is a military aircraft designed to attack ground targets, primarily by dropping bombs. ...


It was not popular with ships as such an aircraft flying over a convoy could cause mines to detonate despite all of the ships having effective degaussing. Degaussing, named after the German scientist Carl Friedrich Gauss, is the process of removing permanent magnetism (magnetic hysteresis) from an object. ...
