In the British navy, ship "cannibalism" flourishes

36
Surface ships, submarines and aviation The British Navy is forced to "eat" their own kind. The Telegraph newspaper reported that the Royal Navy was "mired in cannibalism" due to a prolonged lack of funding.


In the event that the repair of equipment is impossible to make due to the lack of parts, the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom permits to remove them from other combat units. Such a process in the army is unofficially called "cannibalism."

In the British navy, ship "cannibalism" flourishes


According to the report of the National Audit Office (NAO), over the past few years, the number of pieces of equipment of the British Navy, which became the donor of parts, has doubled. Repair Services fleet they call the situation “an epidemic of cannibalism,” which significantly undermines the morale of the military.

The most common "cannibalism" frigates are Type 23, Astute-type submarines and Merlin helicopters. In this case, the NAO indicate that the price of the process of moving parts is often higher than the cost of itself. In addition, when dismantling equipment, other parts are often damaged, which aggravates the situation with a shortage of spare parts.

Last year, the Parliamentary Committee on Defense has already criticized the British Department of Defense for miscalculations regarding the fleet. According to parliamentarians, due to unprofessional management, the number of combat-ready ships in the near future may decrease to 19 destroyers and frigates, which is a “dismally low” number. In addition, it is planned to write off 2035 frigates before 13, and financing the construction of ships to replace them "is a serious concern," reports "Warspot"

          No need, by any means! Let them "eat" and relish further! The higher their appetite, the weaker their fleet!

      Churchill is credited with saying: “The main traditions of the British fleet are: rum, whip and sodomy.” Now cannibalism has been added. The lights of civilization.

      It was so. In the early 90s, in order to go to sea, they collected spare parts from the entire division ...

      That's true what !!! The mistress of the seas was blown away, then the submarine crashed into some fishermen, then ran aground, they generally lost their British scent! In general, they have women in the navy, not so long ago the captain of a boat was removed for a sekas with his subordinates while sailing !!! I AM DEEP SHOCK !!! And the commander of the land "usa" is generally unconventional ..........

        finally Britons have long been blown away ... and, in all areas ... the maximum that was enough for them was to be caught up in war crimes by Americans around the world !!! negative negative negative

    Even 2-3 years ago it was possible to replace “British ...” with “Russian ...” The meaning would not have changed. The Britons need to fight hard with someone, get sanctions, you see, and cannibalism will begin to disappear.

    The motto - "England - the mistress of the seas" has long been a thing of the past. Today, in the Western armies in the first place is non-traditional service, transgender people, corruption and sexual scandals with senior officials.

    The same thing happened at the Soviet Navy. At the naval department, officers told us about this.
    Maybe this happens on the Russian Navy, but they won’t write about it.

      Yes, this can happen not only in the Navy. Just, apparently, due to a lack of finance, this phenomenon has taken alarming proportions. Or they are thus asking for extra money.

    Cases usually heavily adjust official statements.

    In fact: the West was really afraid of the USSR and the ATS. English tanks and so on. The state of the aircraft was maintained appropriate.

    The state of modern aircraft in all Western countries proves that yelling about "Russian aggression"- these are the sounds made by the sphincter, and nothing more.

    If the mouth of Westerners is aligned with its opposite, then only regret can be expressed.

    Great Britain does not need a navy, except for the necessary minimum, because no one is attacking the Anglo-Saxons, and is not going to attack.

    there are no minerals on the British Isles, there is no oil and gas, no coal, and even then ... imported workers (all kinds of Poles are Baltic), they are unlikely to get revenge on colonialism, not at that time, so there’s no point even attacking them, if only some Indians or Africans decide to sail the old grievances ... so they don’t need the fleet as such. although who knows what comes to their mind.

      Why do they need oil and gas?
      A collection of hundreds or thousands of Russian nouveau riche of various levels fully compensates for the lack of minerals. The last birch trees breed in London ...

    That's right. It was the same with us. Have we really lived up to the fact that they have come back to haunt them. There is a proverb, do not dig another hole.

    Wonderful! In my air times (1974-1995), removing parts "like this" was a crime. But it was a long time ago and not true (the details were removed and set). Then, when the aircraft collapsed, thanks to the EBN ghouls and the family, I looked at the cannibals of Russian Railways. I don’t give a damn, but when there is nothing to replace emergency sections or ODR (acute defective rails) ... Flaw detection is bullshit! Need capital investment and repair kits for the road! But this is not! No! No!
    People! Think three times before you board the train! He may be handsome, but he is driving in landmines! "
