American cruiser stranded in Tokyo Bay

68
US Navy cruiser Antietam, equipped with the Aegis multipurpose missile defense system, ran aground off the coast of Japan, an oil leak occurred as a result of the accident, reports Defence.ru with reference to the agency Kyodo.



"The incident with the ship assigned to the American base in Yokosuka in Kanagawa prefecture occurred on January 31," the agency writes. The propellers are reported to have been damaged as a result of the accident. None of the crew were injured. The ship returned to the base with the help of tugs.

According to a spokesman for the US Navy, "apparently, the cruiser ran aground." How this could have happened, he did not explain. The military man also noted that it is too early to say how long the ship will be under repair.

In turn, the representative of the Pacific fleet US Air Force Clint Ramsden clarified that "as a result of the accident, there was a leak of about four thousand liters of hydraulic oil." He stated that the Navy is currently carrying out "established procedures in place and taking appropriate actions to minimize the impact on the environment."

Recall that one of the bases of the American 7th Fleet is stationed in the city of Yokosuka, located in the Kanagawa prefecture adjacent to Tokyo.

        The Japanese take environmental issues very seriously.

        Uh-huh ... and that's why they calmly pour their LRAO into the sea.
        And how smartly these ecolukhs organized the industrial harvest of whales under the guise of research activities ... every time I look at this, I immediately recall the unforgettable "Adventures of Captain Vrungel":
        An hour passed like this, two, three. It got boring. I went there for a meeting. They let me in. I sat down in a corner and listened. And they are already debating. Just, you know, a representative of one Eastern power, Admiral Kusaki, took the floor.
        “Our common goal,” he said, “is to protect cetaceans from extinction. What means do we have to achieve this noble goal? You all know very well, gentlemen, that the only effective means is the destruction of cetaceans, for with the destruction of them there will be no one to die out. Now let's analyze the case that has become the subject of our discussion: Captain Vrungel, the issue of which is on the agenda, as he himself admits, had every opportunity to destroy the sperm whale he met. What did this cruel man do? He shamefully stepped back from fulfilling his lofty duty and left the poor animal to die out as much as he pleased! Can we close our eyes to such a crime? Can we get past such a blatant fact? No, gentlemen, we cannot. We must punish the culprit. We must take away his ship and hand it over to my compatriots, who honestly carry out the tasks of our committee ...

        This is our commander of Essen, together with representatives of the command of the Black Sea Fleet, inadvertently bent the propellers when trying to set them on the barrels and returned in tugs. But the Yankes ship valiantly and absolutely professionally ran aground.

        How did he manage? In his youth, he himself repeatedly drove ships there (directly at the helm), I agree the navigation there is difficult, therefore pilotage is not recommended, but mandatory. The pilot areas of responsibility are strictly delimited, one led to the place, we wait for the next one, and so on until we get to the place.

      In May 1981, during the surfacing of the American nuclear submarine, the Japanese seiner Maru-13 broke through. Seiner sank and the seiner captain died. We were waiting for him (submarine) in the direction of Busan or Sasebo, but he went to Guam (on the surface, the wheelhouse was damaged). There are enough idiots everywhere, but they have more.

      It's Ticonderoga. It was made on the basis of the Spruens EM and was initially classified as EM. But then, for political reasons, the Tiki became cruisers - the admirals did not like the fact that the US fleet was left without new cruisers. smile
      In fact, "tika" is an intermediate "cruiser destroyer". It was necessary to remove a quarter of the cells of the UVP - and the result was a "pure" EM "Burke". smile

            1923 year, Honda point disaster: Destroyer Squadron 11 (14 brand new "clemsons") during the day conducted exercises off the coast of California, between San Francisco and San Diego. In conditions of poor visibility, the laying was carried out according to dead reckoning ("course according to the compass - speed according to the rotational speed of the propeller"), without taking coastal landmarks. Signals from coastal radio beacons were received, but were considered "unreliable" (the RNS was new and was not yet trusted too much). The depths were not measured: for this it was necessary to reduce the speed, which the flagship did not allow to do - because the exercises were conducted in an environment as close as possible to combat.
            Result: 9 EM out of 14, following at a 20-knot speed, instead of entering the strait, flew ashore. 2 were removed, the rest were written off.
