US admiral: US Navy loses advantage over Russia and China

25
US Navy Command is exploring the possibility of increasing its fleet in connection with the allegedly growing threat from Russia, China and Iran, reports Look with reference to Fox News.



Currently, the US Navy has 276 ships, "but many of them have been idle for several months or even years, waiting for maintenance, upgrading or certification," said Admiral John Richardson, Marine Operations Manager.

We must reverse this trend,
he declared.

According to the agency, there are several options to increase the power of the US Navy - "the restoration of mothballed vessels, the extension of the life of existing ships, the construction of new ships, more effective management of the current fleet." At the same time, the option of restoring canned ships has its critics.

We would spend many years and hundreds of millions of dollars to get them back,
quotes the publication of a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, Tom Calender.

At the same time, he noted that the command is studying each option to increase the power and capabilities of combat forces.

According to Callender, one of the acceptable options is “speeding up maintenance, repair and certification.” However, it all comes down to a serious shortage of staff.

Over the past few years, the backlog in repair has become a serious problem,
he said.

Earlier, the US Navy stated that by 2022, the number of ships in the fleet should have reached 310. In total, over the course of 30 years, the fleet combat composition should increase to 355 ships.

      Why's that laughing Or again, our submarines do not count laughing After all, the admiral advised because of the massive armament of our even modest ships of the near zone with long-range Caliber, as well as excellent coastal complexes and the capabilities of naval aviation. The Chinese only spoil nerves in the South and East China Seas.

        Because the Chinese are smart enough not to go far from their borders.
        And in Russia, all the oceans, except the Indian, are close to the borders. We have no choice but to denote our presence everywhere. But it would be a mistake to consider the Chinese fleet weak. Yes, he did not pass the verification of the war, but they are preparing for the war responsibly. Because they know war is inevitable.
        So the Chinese fleet is at least equal to the Russian one.

          China is locked in these seas. The Strait of Malacca is understandable, but the Japan-Korea-Okinawa-Taiwan chain also creates a barrier to access to the Pacific Ocean. The Chinese fleet commander at one time said that China needed to break the sea blockade, so he rushed to build the AUG and distant zone ships. This is extremely beneficial for us, since the ground army of the PRC will be halved (equal to ours), moreover, the main fighter will be a marine, which is even better for our borders. In addition to the critical dependence of the Chinese on marine supplies of food and energy, the Chinese threw themselves into the last colonial redistribution of Africa and Latin America.

          the Chinese fleet is not equal in shock component.
          he only built up good opportunities for patrolling and surface control within a radius of 1000-1500 km from the bases. In the field of air defense, PLO, submarines, he is still far from cool. The Chinese fleet still does not have decisive superiority over the fleets of neighbors (Japan, Australia, India, Vietnam, Hong Kong, India, etc.)
          They only indicated what constitutes a serious force.

      No matter how much money the warriors give, there will still be little. And there is also a lobby for the interests of producers and a political lobby ... so this statement is a simple routine.

        Greetings! hi
        If Winnie the Pooh had composed his chant about money, then "Money is a strange thing! No matter how much there is - and immediately there are none! laughing

        Actually, I’m scared to imagine how much money their floating economy is eating. If the whole World ceases to play in the US dollar (that is, subsidize their power), then what will they support their war machine for?

        They are already going to take money for bases (!), And not pay rent. Vaughn, Merkel for the maintenance of the Pendoc base has already rolled out 350 lard Eureka. And she immediately combed her turnip. If it goes like this, you see - the Geyropeytsy from NATA run away ... laughing

        It’s not easy to talk about the Euroarmy — and the Geyroarmy and NATU will not be pulled stopudovo — either.

      Not tolerant. African Americans have become spoiled, give them the job. One even climbed into the presidency, for 8 years he did so many tricks that until the end of the days of the United States there would never be a “dark little” head of state again.
