The US Navy received the Virginia 14-class submarine

45
At the naval base "Norfolk", the ceremony of entering the US Navy's fourteenth submarine (SSN-787) "Washington" class "Virginia" took place in the US Navy, reports TSAMTO.



Virginia-class submarines are being built jointly by Newport News Shipbuilding (a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries) and General Dynamics Electric Boat. The cost of one submarine is estimated at $ 2,7 billion.

Construction of the Washington submarine began in September 2011, the keel laying ceremony took place on November 22, 2014, transferred to the US Navy in May of this year.

Virginia-class submarines are “multi-purpose submarines designed to operate at deep and shallow depths, anti-submarine and anti-ship warfare, attack land targets using sea-based cruise missiles (SLCM) of the Tomahawk, asymmetrical combat operations, delivery to the place of operation of groups of combat swimmers, the installation of sea mines, ”the material says.

In total for the US Navy, consistently improving combat capabilities, it is planned to build up to the 30 submarine of the Virginia series.

"Washington" is the fourth submarine of the class "Virginia" modification "Block 3".

It is reported that this version is modified by 20% compared to the previous one and “they differ in the redesigned nose to accommodate the hydroacoustic station, as well as two new VPT launchers (Virginia Payload Tube)”. They replaced twelve 21-inch individual vertical launch tubes for launching Tomahawk sea-based cruise missiles (TLAMS), which are equipped with the submarines of previous releases.

    And we all Kazan (885m) are waiting ... with flowers and an orchestra. They were looking forward to it ... mattresses for five years of Virgins rivet, and we for 10 years of Ash. But our sailors are heroes, and if anything, with a sapper shovel, they will go to the adversary in the ocean.

      If you didn’t destroy your country regularly under the root, you would also be riveted without problems. request
      As for Virginia, the submarine is certainly good, but after the 20th year, the elk will be retired, and 4 Ohio will certainly be converted too. Given that moose were riveted in the midst of the Cold War, I do not think that virgins will replace them one by one. And this means that a quantitative reduction in subflooding will occur. Trump and the admirals are not in vain worried. The quantitative composition of the fleet is constantly decreasing. And the announced plans to increase to 350 ships are not yet believed. Congress is not giving money for this yet. And the fleet for the United States, as it used to be for the British Empire, is the main power tool. hi

        We have always built a fleet slower and worse than the United States, even with the mighty USSR when almost everything was spent on defense. With what then should we be at the level or even close to the USA today? What does patriotism have to do with Putin, manners and Edro? You are sick?

              The Americans are doing one in seven years, we are the first in nine years.
              Moreover, ash is a full-fledged multi-target, and Virginia can only fire missiles overland.

              You, in life, built something, except for the need in the country. Presented the Quality Control Department and the VP, closed at least one construction document.

              Don’t shout, dear. Our shipbuilders are the least to blame. The main fault of the subcontractors and the financing, well, for an hour the MO itself does not know what it really wants. Hence the shifts in terms and long-term construction.

    Wow ... how flies up .. Maybe you rush to our plant .. give the master class for the production of nuclear submarines? I look on the net all so strong, smart and skillful .. in short, wait ...
    And the second ... Virginia, for starters, needs to cope with pr877,636 .. then 971 .. I’ll put a beer on a dail ... That recent NATO exercises have confirmed. I’m wondering .. what to replace the virgins? Well, we understand .. 855e .. then the Husky wagons .... Will the Americans make another cruise?

      Well, then I would argue ... the 636th ambush submarine, moreover, low-speed (only 24 knots) ... not to cope with it with the Virgin. And here is the 971th, yes ... Our pike have not forgotten how to bite. But their damn little. To modernize them, but to put "vertical lines", and the song would be not a submarine. I have a particular weakness for the Cheetah ... a good devil and the last one in the series, unfortunately.

      Ohio is designing. It’s not clear what kind of animal it will turn out ... I think it will have underwater drones in its arsenal ...
      Yes, according to Husky, we also have complete darkness ... they said something, but what is not yet clear (maybe for the better). He said more than once, we need a hunter of the Lyra type, up to 3000 tons. So that it was speedy, toothy and deep-sea. Then the lag on the multi-taskers would be somehow leveled, since part of the tasks of the Ash-tree could be taken upon by such a hunter with YaSU.
      But I’m sure that life will force us to build such nuclear submarines anyway. But it’s better sooner than later.

    There is no need to make of this tragedy, even if they cook up the fifteenth tomorrow, where are the Americans and where are we, whose territory occupies 1/3 of the land. They just need to have a strong submarine fleet, of course we also need it, but not 15 Boreev and 16 Ash trees each. What for? It is much more adequate and cheaper to develop means of delivery of nuclear weapons capable of traveling hundreds of kilometers a day, using our vast expanses and turn it a lot cheaper and more angry.

    This is the most serious argument of the confrontation between the Americans and Russia. As with our part. I would like to wish Zvezdochka to achieve the Soviet pace of construction. And the Northern Shipyard.
    Interestingly, in how many years can China become the third global player with a powerful submarine fleet? I have no doubt that it will become - and then the Americans will have much more difficult - trying to control all the nuclear submarines of Russia and China at the same time will become impossible and ruinous even for the United States.
