New US aircraft carrier is half ready

53
The company Huntington Ingalls Industries announced its success in building a new aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy (CVN 79), reports portal scout.com. John F. Kennedy is the second aircraft carrier of the Gerald R. Ford type, which are being built to replace ships of the Nimitz type.


According to the shipyard, at the moment, the readiness of the ship is 50%, construction is carried out in accordance with the approved plan. Thus, the U.S. Navy will be able to get a new aircraft carrier in 2020. In addition, John F. Kennedy will cost the fleet $ 1,5 billion less than Gerald R. Ford (its construction cost almost $ 13 billion).

Gerald R. Ford aircraft carriers have a length of 337 m, maximum width - 78 m, displacement of the order of 100 000 t and are designed for 90 aircraft and helicopters. According to the technical description, on these ships it is planned to deploy the F-35, F / A-18E / F Super Hornet, EA-18G Growler aircraft, as well as the MH-60R / S helicopters.

The USS John F. Kennedy is the second in a series of ten ships of the Gerald R. Ford type. The new aircraft carriers will replace the Nimitz-type ships that have been in service since 1975. Gerald R. Ford - the third generation of nuclear aircraft carriers, carrying military service in the US Navy. The first of these was the Enterprise type, but due to the high cost of the ship, the program was limited to a single instance that served from 1962 to 2012 for the year (altogether six aircraft carriers were planned), "Warspot".

          This is the SECOND aircraft carrier of the new series. He is in the middle of construction.
          And the first one is already in the fleet.

        There was a “loud" voice from Estonia. No, from the territory of the "occupied" Baltic. Of course, you just need to bow before the American "power", because a pair of their aircraft carriers will cover half the country in their area.

      Gigantomania is a contagious thing ... a flock of pieces that way a hundred small Zircons will hit the target more reliably than one big Zircon along which the entire USA AUG escort will shoot.

        There has already been debugged production, although for so many years we had to fix everything. All enterprises of the military-industrial complex should be nationalized, the government should appoint the salary of the management, but responsibility for marriage, failure to meet deadlines, for quality, for waste should be fully borne. The leader must answer with his head and all his property.

          Gorbachev and his companions threw us back 50 years at least ago, and given that this fact is now unlikely to be corrected (the legitimate plunder of the country by the "elite", the prospects are rather sad. recourse

          On it will be first 1/3 F-35S and 2/3 Hornets. On trial.
          And then 2/3 F-35S and 1/3 Hornetov. That's what sailors want (today).
          It is conceived that the Hornets-Grolers will crush the EW anti-aircraft defense, and the F-35 will wet

        Electromagnetic
        EMALS is a huge linear induction motor, that is, an engine whose rotor is not round, but elongated along the starting strip. The engine segments will alternately shut off and connect, dispersing the aircraft. The starter has a special trolley to which the plane clings to the front landing gear and moves between two guides with electromagnets, like on rails. After passing the carts, the electromagnetic sections are turned off, and those to which it approaches are turned on. This significantly saves energy.
