Military Review

The armament of the destroyer Zumwalt was too expensive

147
The shells for 155-mm cannons mounted on the newest US destroyers USS Zumwalt turned out to be too expensive - the cost of each reaches $ 800 thousand, reports RIA News Defense News post.




“Such a high price is associated with a sharp reduction in purchases of Zumwalt destroyers. The production of ammunition for them was not massive, but piece and costly, ”a military source told the publication.

The weekly recalled that initially the US Navy planned to purchase 28 ships, but in the end this number dropped to 3's. The first is already commissioned in October of this year.

“Two 155-millimeter cannons are mounted on each of the destroyers. They can only work with LRLAP (Long Range Land-Attack Projectile) guided high-precision projectiles specially designed for them, ”the article says.

The armament has passed all the tests, there are no complaints about it. The only problem is very expensive. Therefore, the command intends to abandon the LRLAP.

The military has already begun to look for alternatives. “The difficulty lies in the fact that the USS Zumwalt automatic projectile feed system is designed for LRLAP. Find similar ammunition of the same size is unlikely to succeed, it is necessary to completely change the software, ”writes the publication.

Most likely, they will not find a replacement in the near future, and the destroyer will have to take up combat duty without ammunition, the weekly concludes.

        Nobody canceled the laws of the economy, so the not-so-successful destroyer will cost a minimum of shells that have already been fired. The Napoleonic plans of the creators of this monster are more and more hindered by either technical problems or lack of funds.

      I read the comments and am amazed ... Gentlemen! Promising destroyers are building mattresses, aircraft carriers are laying, multipurpose nuclear submarines are being handed over to the fleet ... and what do we have? MAPL Kazan when at least sent for testing? Is everything good with corvettes and domestic gas turbines? The last destroyer when we had it built?
      Why are you sitting gibbering? Unlike us, mattresses build ships of the ocean zone, test new technologies, lay nuclear submarines and modernize the fleet ...
      Or will we rejoice in the transfer of RTOs to the fleet and believe that they are capable of drowning a destroyer or adversary cruiser? Are you seriously?
      Why are you sitting here grinning?
      In addition to mattresses, British, French, Germans build and lay serious surface ships and submarines, and this, for a moment, is also NATO forces. And we sell unfinished corvettes to Indians. We have been building multipurpose nuclear submarines for 20 years. We drive the old Kuzya as a young man and are very angry that Europeans are laughing at him. But when Henry Ford built mattresses, few said that it was the 11th ATOMIC US aircraft carrier with an air wing many times greater than Admiral Kuznetsov. But they laughed amicably from for the problems that arose during the tests of an aircraft carrier on mattresses. Do you hear yourself, gentlemen?

            And the second: instead of stupidly sitting and gossiping over the fact that mattresses are developing their fleet, which, by the way, is the most powerful in the world, can we talk about what is going on with us?

        Why do we need such "promising" shnyags? Throw in crazy money and send them on alert with empty barrels? And judging by the map - if we are a "sea" power, then not too much. Or as at the beginning of the last century - they overstrained, built dreadnoughts-battleships, which remained at the berths (and BOTH) of the war. And the war came, and no rifles, no cartridges, no field artillery, no shells for what they managed to scrape together. Whisper!

          To avoid this, you need a balanced fleet, which includes ships of the coastal zone and submarines of different classes and purposes, and ships of the first rank. That build the same mattresses. And we today, above the frigates we did not rise in the building. Destroyers are not being built, we are not laying cruisers ... I will not say anything about the aircraft carrier. And what about the submarines we have? We plan the Varshavyanka, whose project has been around for decades. How much do we develop anaerobic plant? The Germans have such a SU for a long time and is not anything supernatural.
          We’ll talk about nuclear submarines? When will MAPL Kazan be sent at least for state tests, do not remind? And the mattresses, meanwhile, are transferring the 13th Virginia Class MAPL to the fleet. They laid another Borey. Just do not say that the Mace, its main caliber flies as God puts on the soul.
          And where is the balance of the fleet? Most of the ships we have built in the USSR. Moscow is almost 40 years old!

But so that our merchant ships would sail smoothly across the seas and oceans without being afraid of anything, I’m afraid it’s not enough, just as it’s not enough to beat our heels in the chest and say that we are a superpower.

                "Mattresses have a balanced fleet, but what about us today?"
                I am forwarding your question to the General Staff. People are more competent than you, dear, the opinion is apparently different from yours. Moreover, do not live in the present day, look boldly into the future and believe in your State.
                "Dear, who is talking about catching up and overtaking? The talk is about building a fleet that is adequately and guaranteed to be able to react and resist threats, both from the sea and from land."
                Dear, where did it say about "overtaking"? Be more accurate and correct, it will only benefit you. And, explain how you can "adequately and guaranteed" "react and resist" with less advanced means? Parity should be at least. Does the concept "asymmetric" mean anything to you? And how will the OCEAN fleet, adequate to the leading powers, help us "withstand threats, both from sea and from land." Where? In the Baltic? In the Sea of ​​Okhotsk? In the North Ice Ocean? Hawaii? Will help the fleet adequate to the threats. And our threats are not in the Indian Ocean.
                About the demonstration of the flag and calluses, it’s you, dear, in vain. It doesn't suit you. But is something threatening our merchant fleet? I do not hit the heel in the chest - my legs bend badly. And I consider Russia a superpower without cheers-patriotism. Whatever you think about it ...
                "... But you decided to push for politics here, speaking about the conditions ..." Politics, among other things, is the reverse side of the economy. What will you "push" about the economy of that period? And who signed Order No. 69-P of February 4, 1992? You probably did not catch or missed this year. And how they actually stole, breaking into the Mediterranean TAKR "Admiral of the Fleet of the Soviet Union Kuznetsov" I remember. Without most of the crew and wing. Rescued. And then Kravchuk would have let him go under the knife or sold it to the Chinese. Enough reminders?
                And do not wang for the Mace. Everything will be as it should.
                "So why bother at all, dear! Maybe, well, his this fleet and we will sit quietly on our mainland and hope that they will not see us?" And again - do not distort dear! My point is that you shouldn't support one ally at the expense of another. And remind me, where in the entire history of Russia was the main battle fought? Priority? Both us and the existing fleet are well seen.
                Yours! hi

        Even if it were ... an expensive shell, what purpose could it have? Just as planned by the creators?
        To expensive high-tech facilities - this is in China and the Russian Federation, but Zamvolt would not be allowed to reach artillery shots. There remains only countries to which the ship can approach a distance of 110 km. But they do not have sufficiently expensive targets that would justify the use of these shells.

        But no one has thought of the following thought. With one shell you will not sink any ship. Theoretically speaking, the destruction of, say, a battleship will require shells at a price almost exceeding the price of this battleship itself.

          They were going to put these guns on Burke III series.
          Then there would be a large series and a lower price.
          But it seems they have changed their minds. Apparently, the application concept has changed.
          These shells were hardly planned against us, rather against China. hi
          In the modern fleet, the battleship is only Peter the Great, and then with a stretch.
          And Sheffield - Exocet's engine was enough to burn out and sink.
          The warhead did not even explode. So everything is not so simple.
          In any case, the news is good - we won this arms race!

          With one shell you will not sink any ship.
          They want to work with this artillery against coastal targets, support their landing. Heavy artillery systems cannot be dragged with you in the first wave of the landing and aviation cannot constantly "hang" in the Charlie zone. And there is always a whole battery at hand. Bullet, I don’t want to- - it's cheap after all ...
          They have the option to either buy expensive shells or create a cheap shell for this system, but then the missile accuracy of the fire is lost and the Marines will not receive the required support.

      I'll give you one example ... Remember this MAPL SIVOULF "SEA WOLF"? Very expensive, which was released in only three copies. And it seems like everything is fun, maybe expensive and impractical. But the mattresses scratched the pumpkins, thought, and began a series of Virginia-class nuclear submarines, so to speak, the economy version of Seawolf, which, by the way, is one of the best in its class.
      And today, the United States with Illinois has 13 such MAPLs, with the series supposed to be 30 units. But why talk about it, if you can stupidly not notice this?
      Taking into account the whole NATO Ocean Fleet (Germans, French, Americans, etc.), we need to build ships and submarines twice as fast as mattresses, so that we can effectively withstand this marine machine. And we have been building Ash trees for 20 years, and Boreas with us without the main caliber go to the seas in fact.

          But what cannot be drawn is production and research facilities. If Zamvolt was built, then something else was not built. It could be much more dangerous for us. So Zamwalt makes me happy, even though it is a "platform for new technologies".

          I said nothing about development, development is always good, and money in this case is always a lot of money.
          But can one compare (once again, without taking into account the development) the construction of the T-4, facility 195, S-47 with the construction of the Ship?
          After all, all the technologies that are in it - could (once again - without taking into account development) be tested on other ships in the order of modernization. It will be much cheaper and 6 most importantly, more efficient.
          As for airplanes and tanks (once again, excluding development), their prototype is comparable in cost with the modernization of old aircraft and tanks, and therefore it is not correct to compare S-47, T-4 and Zamvolt (again - excluding development) .

          Mace?? Are you seriously? The mace has a specific purpose and necessity, and, unlike Zamvolt, no one justifies it as a "platform for experiments", etc. Although, as on any new model, everything that has been developed is tested on it.

      Do not rush with phrases the meaning and meaning of which you do not understand. They can print wrappers, of course, but they won’t be able to buy anything for them inside their USA. The dollars that they print go mostly only to foreign markets, they do not spin inside the US itself, otherwise they would have inflation of hundreds of percent. So don’t grind nonsense, they won’t buy anything.

        But the problem is that some dollars flow into others through loans and other projects. Otherwise, how would a fifth of the SGA eat and buy?

        In general - my opinion - the whole world will forgive the debt of treasury in exchange for the soft withdrawal of the SGA from the world stage.

          But in the light of the flashed information that we are conducting research on the piezo-coatings of submarines, which are both sensors and emitters, mines may appear that distort the picture - for example, it will be visible as a school of fish.

      Turn a blank for a shell - yes. But here it’s a completely different matter, a guided projectile is a rather complicated device. During the 2-th World War, even the USSR saved on everything it could. Even in 44-45 years. And here is one shell, $ 800 thousand, and then, in the conditions of economic recovery and the availability of resources.
      It turned out that two shells are more expensive than one Tomahawk missile launcher. Well, how were they going to fight them?

      And he did just everything to reduce the cost of production, and not vice versa. In the USSR, they understood perfectly well that the war is won not by piece, expensive wunderwaels, but by massive and cheap types of weapons. Take the example of at least the same Tu-2, it began to be mass-produced only in 1943, when the turning point in the war was already obvious, but the whole the industry is brought to full capacity. The "carcass", in contrast to the "Pawn", was more expensive and complex, so at the initial stages only "Pawns" were made. Pe-2 produced more than 11 thousand, and Tu-2 only a little more than 2,5 thousand, and for the entire time, and it was produced until 1952. And so much more. So you write nonsense.

    Great ship! I like very much, the similarity to the dreadnought of the beginning of the century is also very stylish ..... I bought it, but ...... a little expensive. )



    The dreadnought Szent Istvan was considered the most powerful weapon of the Austro-Hungarian imperial fleet. He was called the "invincible giant." Sailors were very fond of taking pictures on the background of the ship. They were proud to serve on this delicious dreadnought. Everyone was confident in the coming glory. It never occurred to anyone that this “crown diamond” could be destroyed.

          What is it made of? What is so expensive.

          The ship is armed with two 155-mm "super-guns", firing guided active rockets (Long Range Land-Attack Projectile, LRLAP), capable of hitting the enemy at a distance of 80 nautical miles (148 km). The shells for these guns have a length of 223 cm and weigh 102 kg. The guns have a rate of ten rounds per minute on the barrel and are capable of releasing 600 high-explosive shells in half an hour. According to US naval experts, anywhere in the world there is no equivalent to such weapons. However, it is possible that the shells for these guns will not be adopted by the US Navy, writes the military-analytical publication Defense News One of the US Navy officials in an interview with Defense News said that because of the excessively high price, three or four have already been considered LRLAP replacement shell options, including the Excalibur Army Guided Projectile from Raytheon and Hyper Velocity Projectile (HVP). The latter is a project developed by the US Navy Naval Research Service and BAE Systems. In the case of replacement of ammunition for guns AGS, naturally, changes in the software of the destroyer artillery fire control system will be required. We will have to resort to the rearrangement of the mechanisms for the automatic supply of ammunition in the tower gun mounts of the ship. They are currently designed to hold 300 LRLAP shells, but it is unlikely that ammunition developed by another company will have exactly the same dimensions.

        The cost of a projectile for a railgun is several times lower than the cost of other anti-ship missiles, because this is a blank only flying at great speed (the projectile speed can reach nine thousand kilometers per hour) over a distance of 150 - 350 kilometers! The defeat of objects occurs due to the transition of its huge kinetic energy into heat.

          It is believed that Zumvolt can do this from 150 km - that is,
          not coming close to the shore, as it was before.

          The overlay is that it was expected that ultra-long-range shells would be
          cheaper than cruise missiles. But it turned out - no.

          And all sorts of deep bunkers will be hollowed by aviation with special bombs -

    https://topwar.ru/35714-esmincy-tipa-zumwalt-o-se
    godnyashnem-sostoyanii-korabley-buduschego.html
    In the nose of the destroyer DDG-1000, it is proposed to install two AGS artillery systems with 155 caliber guns. The AGS system is a gun turret with advanced underdeck units. An interesting feature of this artillery installation is ammunition. Despite the caliber, the AGS system will not be able to use existing 155-mm ammunition. Especially for the new naval artillery, an LRAPS projectile was created. Active-reactive ammunition is similar to a rocket: its length exceeds the 2,2 meter, and after exiting the barrel, it must spread its wings and stabilizer. With its own weight 102 kg projectile can carry 11-kilogram warhead. Using inertial and satellite navigation systems, an LRAPS projectile can hit targets at a distance of at least 80 km.

    The total ammunition of the two artillery systems will be 920 shells. In the styling of the automatic loading of both systems AGS will be 600 ammunition. The length of the projectile made it necessary to apply several interesting solutions in the design and operation of automatic loading. So, ammunition will be fed to the gun in an upright position. To do this, before loading, the barrel of the gun must be raised to a vertical position. Shooting is possible with an elevation from -5 ° to + 70 °. The original automatic loader, according to official data, provides the rate of fire at the level of 10 rounds per minute. Declared the possibility of shooting long lines.

    Promising destroyers build mattresses

    This is not a promising destroyer, this is a stillborn project, the army refused to purchase products on which. Presumably, not just having drunk bourbon, but having discovered fatal flaws. Total: an unexploited trough (no radar, no ammunition), conceived for the purposes of PR of American technological superiority, turned into zilch.
