US Navy: American industry will easily cope with the task of building additional ships

US defense enterprises are ready to bring the number of ships in the composition fleet up to 350 if Trump sets such a task, passes RIA News Statement by Chief of Staff of the Navy, John Richardson.


US Navy: American industry will easily cope with the task of building additional ships


Recall, in his election speeches, Trump promised to increase the number of ships in the US Navy to 350.

“If it is funded, then it’s a matter of working closely with the industrial base, and they are definitely ready to do it,” Said Richardson.

According to him, “the current goal of the US Navy is to expand the fleet from around 290 ships to 308, but it can be quite simple to fulfill the new target in 350 ships.”

The admiral noted that the “limiting and training of workers for the construction of new ships” could be the only limiting factor.

According to US media reports, Navy officials are still counting on how much the fleet will cost. As Richardson himself stated, funding could come from the “supplementary budget allocations for 2017 a year.”

        I also don’t understand why to fight? Couch General Damn.
        We don’t stamp so many ships, stupidly we won’t pull on finances, capacities and personnel.
        It is easier to develop anti-ship systems.
        I think Shoigu has a big head, probably there are ideas on measures.

            We, unlike you, do not need the whole world. The Russian Federation is not an empire, and it is not going to enslave, slander, rob, and put anyone in a dependent position. hi
            We are always guided by reasonable expediency. We do not need a fleet consisting entirely of AUGs. 2-3 We will have any aircraft carrier-nuclear submarine, but no more. You still can’t defeat us without dying yourself. Our nuclear weapons are being upgraded on time, as planned, unlike yours. hi I wish you success with a cut of the amerobudget for the "needs" of the Navy!

              Calm, no nerves. BP Colonel Dmitry Trumpov, fulfills the plan for the final ruin of the United States. Joke. But in every joke ... I absolutely do not understand what it will give for the USA, the possession of three hundred and fifty ships, instead of two hundred and ninety. Well, you can still build five hundred ... maybe a thousand. And then what? What will it change?

                Every Arleigh Burke hotel can cause enormous damage, both at sea and on land, and in the ranks with AUG and AWACS, opportunities increase thanks to developed communication and information exchange. "Extra" 40 ships are two AUG, or one on constant alert. But even I doubt that the Americans so need to increase the fleet, they already have it impressive, there is no one to fight on two fronts.

            The guarantor of the world was and will be in the form of nuclear weapons and, accordingly, their delivery vehicles.
            Even if we blow up all the nuclear weapons at home, you will not like it very much.

        Right ... right. That's just, I'm afraid that when our "mighty" industry begins to reach the aforementioned level (about "catch up and overtake" in general ... well, you get the idea) it will "breathe its last breath." Unless, of course, we return to the "Stalinist methods".

          In Stalin's times, a highly skilled worker was the hero of books and films. Today, there is simply no one to make ships or airplanes. More and more people want to be lawyers, officials, deputies, doctors of sciences or, in extreme cases, managers. And those wishing to turn the nuts and cook "sealed seams" on the fingers of one hand. This is not fashionable, not a trend.
          In general, you need to prepare fresh engineering and working personnel. And this is not done very quickly.

            If specialist welders, electricians, locksmiths, etc. experienced craftsmen don’t pay the money that they cost, then there will be no fashion for that. On the contrary, terrible and irreversible processes will begin, there will be nobody and no one to share experience with. It is these hands and heads that realize the ideas of engineers, the same ships.

                Not really. We, unlike all of the above, are a more continental country. And most of the defense budget goes just to the land part. By the way, in 15 years, if sclerosis does not fail me, the USSR built 4 Project 1143 TARKs, and the 5th Ulyanovsk was almost completed. Moreover, all this was built from scratch, as before, we actually did not build aircraft carriers.

Apparently, I am not the only one who suspects that they not only earn money there, but also print green papers as much as they see fit. And one does not interfere with the other. That's just painfully cleverly they planted the whole world on this wrapper. (But that's a completely different story.)

    The more floating "toys" the mattresses have, the more expensive the fleet and its maintenance. And, given the established trend towards the rise in the cost of US Navy ships in comparison with the estimate by 2-3 times, I can only be glad for Trump's decision. And the budget will be allocated for the country's construction capacities and their expenditure will be transparent to taxpayers. So far, the President of the USA is fulfilling his obligations.

    Well, in theory, they work at an average pace, rivet "Arleigh Burke" for themselves, DKVD (LPD). Something to replace the "Ticonderogs", something to replace the old "Arlie Berks" 91-93 years, with the problems of the buildings (three are staked on the walls for 5 years).

    Perhaps they will go into a new project, with a new reckless cut of the budget, and their fleet is in order and without these "accelerations".

    Couch troops (bench army, kitchen generals; English armchair warriors) - the common name for the harsh Internet warriors fighting for Truth ™ and Justice ™ in such recognized disciplines of the special Olympiad as history and politics, on news sites, forums and social networks .
    The expression "couch troops" arose long before these of your internet and originally meant white-ticketers and all the other nerds who had successfully declined from military service. The first regular divan divisions of the Runet began to form during the forced peace of a pocket army of one violent tie-eater, and at that time were still not so fierce and numerous. In peacetime, various military Internet experts are attributed to this branch of the armed forces, capable of determining, following a trace of a meteorite, that a rocket must have hit it.

    A massive conscription into divan troops began in February 2014 in the light of the events taking place in / on Samostinnaya.
    Designed for hot battles on the Internet or for quick deployment on social networks, penetration of enemy news feeds into comments, and widespread propaganda of individual analytics. Often used as slow reaction and self-defense forces.

    Originally, sofa soldiers were the exclusive prerogative of Mother Russia, but soon the treacherous Ukrainians unscrupulously communicated this Internet development of the Russians. In the light of some events, it turned out that Ukraine has at least a smaller number of military men, and in order to give it more power, they decided to streamline and organize this Svidomo structure, giving the official name “Cyber ​​Hundred”. It is also noteworthy that all military operations by both sides are conducted in the great and mighty Russian language (or the Finno-Ugric dialect, to whom it is closer), so the uniqueness of this protracted information war is that the language barrier as such does not exist, which still gives Great prerequisites for fomenting holivarov.
    Sofa tactics - put forward proposals for the leadership of troops in hot spots. Prosral X? Yes, because they led d ..... s! You had to do Y!
    Couch armourers are a subspecies of geopolitics who pay close attention to weapons. Ours have only X, and these Y! Excuse me, but where do these guys Y come from if it is only in service with ?
    Sofa engineers are, in turn, a subspecies of sofa gunsmiths. Often, they post technical specifications and talk about the application as if they themselves designed and attended the tests, although for the most part they won’t even be able to make out Kalash, and they won’t distinguish BMD from BMP without the Internet.

    When the USSR, in the mid-80s, leveled up with the United States in armaments, a third of the production related to military products was mothballed. The economies of the Russian Federation and the United States are not comparable. The atomic weapons are weapons of the poor, if they are in the right hands.

    The boat with 4 "Gauges" can easily cope with any medium-tonnage cruiser. And especially if he is "packed" like a fisherman. But God don’t let us all see it in reality.
