The newest destroyer of the British Navy broke down in the Persian Gulf

52
The newest British destroyer Diamond, which became part of the Royal fleet in 2011, interrupted his mission in the Persian Gulf. The reason for the sudden completion of the "Allied Support Operation" was the problem with the screw, which can only be fixed at the factory shipyard, reports The Times.


The 45 HMS Diamond squadron, costing 1 a billion pounds, has problems with a propeller that cannot be fixed in the sea, despite the efforts of sailors
- writes the edition.

The newest destroyer of the British Navy broke down in the Persian Gulf


It is assumed that the warship will return to the home port after ten days.

This accident left the British Navy without 45 type destroyers, since the other five ships of this project are in Portsmouth due to scheduled maintenance, shortages of sailors and problems with engines that do not work well in warm climates.

Note that in February of this year, the diamond destroyer Diamond took part in NATO maneuvers in the Black Sea. During the exercises, the ship was assigned one of the main roles in protecting the allied Ukrainian fleet from missile and air strikes. The ship is equipped with a complex and expensive air defense system. There is a set of Sea Viper anti-aircraft missiles with a range of up to 70 miles, artillery installations and torpedo tubes. On board the ship may be up to 60 British Marines.

However, the American media ridiculed the newest British destroyer, which turned out to be completely defenseless against submarines. As reported by The National Interest magazine, referring to Rear Admiral Chris Parry, destroyers of the Daring type “rumble like a box with wrenches” and can be seen by an enemy submarine 160 kilometers away, RG-Sil reports.

      As far as I remember, the Persian Gulf is a black place for ships of the Navy of Small Britain. Constantly problems with power plants or with screws. Seven feet to him over the chimney.

      amusing, but the British themselves relate to the quality of their technology as well. in "The IT Crowd", a purely British series, there is a scene where a man is trying to put out a fire. the fire extinguisher does not want to work and he begins to read the instructions. comes to "made in the UK" and with the words "well, then it’s understandable" puts him aside and begins to look for other ways to extinguish the fire. like a trifle but significant wink

    worth £ 1 billion ... the other five ships of this project are in Portsmouth due to planned repairs, a shortage of sailors and engine problems

    I wonder how many times has Admiral Nelson rolled over in his grave? And everyone is going to fight with Russia (in words) knowing that no one is going to attack them.

    HMS DIAMOND D34 - TYPE 45 DARING CLASS DESTROYER

    The main weaponry of the destroyer “HMS Daring” is the “PAAMS” anti-aircraft missile launcher with “Aster-15” and “Aster-30” missiles with a range of up to 80 kilometers. Also on the warship are six Sylver systems for the vertical launch of eight Aster missiles by each installation. In addition, the destroyer is equipped with artillery weapons of one installation of a caliber of 114 mm for delivering attacks on coastal fortifications and two 30 mm guns on manpower of the enemy. The design of the ship provides for the installation of "Phalanx".
    A system is installed on board the warship that will provide an automatic warning of a torpedo attack, deploy false targets for reflection and give tactical advice on maneuvering the ship.
    The destroyer "HMS Daring" is equipped with systems that can track up to 1000 targets at the same time and capable of intercepting cruise missiles, identifying them.

            Destroyers of this class are equipped with two Rolls-Royce WR-21 gas turbine engines with an exhaust gas recirculation system to increase power. Each engine is capable of developing power up to 34000 hp.

            It turns out that the “Diamond” was a cheap piece of glass?

            “Diamond” turned out to be “strazik”. The air defense range is not particularly outstanding, there is no anti-aircraft defense at all, it rattles so that the Allies laugh and constant problems with the engines. Phew, didn’t you miss any of the “virtues”? Despite the fact that this destroyer is equipped with the most modern and advanced equipment, he managed to damage the screw. That's very interesting - how? request

                Oleg, welcome hi It may well be that, I'm far from shipbuilding. But then the ship can still move on its own and arrive at the repair site on its own. This is not a loss or very severe damage to the screw in case of mechanical impact.

    Total that it turns out the destroyer in the cost of 1 billion pounds + 280 million pounds to fix errors with engines = about 95 billion rubles.
    The frigate of project 22350 is 18 billion rubles. taking into account the fact that it’s half the size, we’ll take 36 billion rubles. at the same time, theoretically, Russia could build at least two destroyers.
    But there are many who cannot claim that the West is better in any situation and the engines are more powerful and nature is brighter there, etc.
