Aircraft carrier "Gerald Ford" finished sea trials

60
Promising American heavy aircraft carrier "Gerald Ford" successfully passed the factory running tests, which began on April 8 of the current year. According to Military.comIn total, the ship spent seven days at sea and on April 15 returned to the port of Norfolk, Virginia.


Details about how exactly “Gerald Ford” passed the sea trials are not specified. It is only known that all the checks carried out by the military were recognized as successful. "Gerald Ford" was the first in the last 42 of the year to go out to sea a new type of American aircraft carrier. The previous such event took place on 1 March 1975, when the Nimitz aircraft carrier entered the sea trials.

Aircraft carrier "Gerald Ford" finished sea trials


The aircraft carrier was launched in November 2013 of the year. His readiness now stands at 90 percent. The displacement of the aircraft carrier will be about one hundred thousand tons with a length of 337 meters and a width of 78 meters. Draft American ship will be about 12 meters. “Gerald Ford” will be able to reach speeds up to 30 nodes. The crew of the ship will include 4660 sailors.

At present, Gerald Ford, equipped with an electromagnetic catapult for launching aircraft, is being completed afloat. In addition, with 2015, the construction of a second aircraft carrier type - "John F. Kennedy." In the 2018 year, it is planned to lay the third aircraft carrier - the Enterprise. As expected, the metal of the same aircraft carrier of the same name will be used in its construction.

          One semiprecious Zircon pebble is enough for a large ship. Well, maybe two :-) :-) :-) :-)

            It seems to me that the 8-fly “Zircon” is a bluff for the states. Yes, and the name is strange: the circus - ON - that is, the circus is on.

        Beautiful ship! Impressive! Technique is technology, you do not need to find a beautiful and powerful ship only on the basis of a hostile attitude towards the country that built it.

        It’s not tactical to attack conventional missiles with conventional missiles, it’s been a long time since they came up with special heads for torpedoes and missiles.
        Russia calls the system "Ocean Multipurpose System 'Status-6," and it is allegedly capable of traveling underwater to distances of to 6,200 miles. It can submerge to depths of 3,280 feet and travel at speeds of up to 56 knots. The US intelligence agencies estimate Status-6 will carry a multi-megaton thermonuclear bomb payload

        Here the mattresses expressed concern, here is a small piece of translation
        According to U.S. intelligence, the tests took place on November 27. The torpedo was launched from the B-90 Sarov special-purpose submarine; details are unknown. The author of a material on the subject published in The Washington Free Beacon calls the Russian underwater vehicle revolutionary: a torpedo with a nuclear power plant is capable of moving at a speed of 90 knots at a depth of up to a kilometer. The range of the Status is 10 thousand kilometers, the size of the warhead is 6,5 meters. There, according to the Americans, a thermonuclear charge with a capacity of up to 100 megatons can be placed.

          Tactically attacking AOGs with conventional missiles is not entirely correct

          But McCain’s experience suggests otherwise, just one small racket at the right time laughing and repair for many months.
