Australia adopts the first Aegis destroyer

23
Australia officially joined the "AEGIS Club". On the basis of the Osborne Australian Navy held a solemn ceremony of adopting the destroyer Hobart - the first of three ships of the same type, reports "Warspot" with a link to the portal navaltoday.com

Hobart will play a crucial role for the defense, providing new opportunities for the Australian Navy. Using a combination of American and Australian technology, this ship will allow us to work more effectively with our allies.
- said Minister of Defense Industry of Australia Christopher Pyne.

Australia adopts the first Aegis destroyer

Destroyer hobart


Hobart-type destroyers are built according to the SEA 4000 program, according to which the Australian Navy should receive three modern multipurpose warships. The length of the Hobart-type destroyer is 147 m, displacement - 6150 t. Each of the ships will be equipped with the AEGIS system with the Lockheed Martin AN / SPY-1D (V) multifunctional radar and 48-charging universal vertical launcher Mk 41, in which anti-aircraft missiles are to be placed Standard SM-2 and ESSM (in perspective - Standard SM-6 and Tomahawk).

AEGIS is an American naval multifunctional combat information and control system, which is an integrated network of naval means of control, control and destruction. The system allows you to receive and process information from sensors of other ships and aviationBy transmitting the coordinates of targets to their launchers.

The destroyer HMAS Hobart (D39) "stayed" on the stocks for more than two years, but by September last year, Techport Australia still successfully completed the ship, and the AWD Alliance consortium prepared it for transfer to the Australian Navy. The first access to the sea took place last September 13 from the Techport Australia shipyard in Adelaide (South Australia).

Australian destroyers are based on frigates of the type Álvaro de Bazán, designed by Navantia for the Spanish Navy. In the period from 1999 to 2012, the year five such frigates were built, intended for operations as part of a search and attack group led by an aircraft carrier. The second destroyer of the Hobart type was launched in December last year and is now undergoing a series of tests.

    It would be interesting to read the agreement on the use of AEGIS by other countries. It doesn’t work out that the Americans may have a decisive word when using the system or disconnect it by completely disagreeing.

        Maybe you didn’t understand, but the problem is in using this system in wartime, it won’t work out so the system will refuse to work if, for example, Australians try to use it not in the interests of the USA or do not agree on this maneuver?

            No, it’s not funny, it was possible to predict what would make ISIS a sponsor from Qatar, although they sponsored it all together? And now there’s a real split among “friends”

    Aegis Club, cool. Fan Club "SU-24MR". Is this something in the "reserve" of the Bilderbeg mold?

    And they are defending from whom. They live on the outskirts without aggressive neighbors. What, is Russia also threatening? Oh, that Russia. Terrorized the whole world. Even there I will not save from her.
    And I get it. Penguins! Penguins attack (Skipper, Gatalsky, Ricco and Private)

        In fact, they have China not far off. Anyway, any normal country should adhere to Roman wisdom: if you want peace, get ready for war.

      The UK is best prepared for the Russian threat, reducing its army quietly.
      Australia is part of ANZUS, along with New Zealand and the United States, now all Asia-Pacific countries are actively purchasing weapons and Australia is no exception.

      This ship’s CIRCUIT is installed on hundreds of ships of various countries, including frigates of the Alvaro de Bazan type (Spain) and Fridtjof Nansen (Sweden).

    And from whom are other countries with a navy defending themselves? Why should there always be “someone” against whom to defend? Is it simply forbidden to adopt more modern ships? , all the more, it’s not good news what a “formidable naval fist” will be. Already 3 destroyers to replace the old ones.

      Their population is 25 million and is growing due to immigrants.
      Australia, by the way, holds a record: 25 years without economic downturns.
      In general, they are doing well.
      But in the 70s, Australians contemptuously called in Asia: "poor white people."

    Well, Australia, as it was an appendage of the USA, England, remained. Now let them rejoice. One of the Topolino Pooh family is clearly programmed on his head.
