54 Ton.

The “Ton Class”Minesweeper sometimes called “Coniston Class”, was designed to meet a particular need, when it was discovered the Russians had developed a “Magnetic” mine which could defeat “Degaussing”, making the steel hulled “Algerine” class of “Fleet Sweeper”obsolete over night.

(The “Algerine” is the subject of another model in the range)

Over 100 of these “Minesweepers”were between 1952 - 59 and where used in every theatre of operations world wide, many of these vessels are still in active service with a number of navies.
