The second American destroyer (DDG 1001) was put to the test

42
The newest US destroyer USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001) first entered the sea trials, reports Warspot with a link to navyrecognition.com.




On Tuesday, the ship sailed from the Bath Iron Works shipyard located in Bath, Maine, and set off along the Kennebec River to the Atlantic Ocean.

It is reported that “during the first stage of sea trials, the crew and representatives of the shipyard will check the ship’s running performance and the performance of its basic systems”.

USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001) is the second in a series of three new generation destroyers designed for the US Navy. The first of them - Zumwalt (DDG 1000) - was completed in December 2015; in May of this year, it was transferred the fleet. The third ship - Lyndon B. Johnson (DDG 1002) - should be completed before the end of 2018. Destroyers are being built by General Dynamics.



Destroyers are considered experimental ships, which will be the first to receive advanced weapons, in particular, electromagnetic weapons and combat lasers. Due to the high level of automation, the crew of each of the ships will be just 148 people.

The destroyer Michael Monsoor was “laid down in May 2013 of the year and named after SEAL soldier (Sea Seals) Michael Anthony Monsur, who died in Iraq's 2006: during the battle, Montsour covered himself with a grenade and saved the rest of his group, and He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest US military award, ”explains the publication.

      "Hedgehogs, pricked, cried but ate a cactus." Of course, the Zumwalt destroyers also have positive aspects, negative experience, and also experience. But in terms of price and quality, this is one of the most failed projects

        Michael Anthony Monsour, who died in 2006 in Iraq

        Who called him there? Occupant. He died in battles with people fighting for their homeland.
        Eh, the minuses were canceled, otherwise they would have crumbled now.
        This is a "hero" from the category of "poor Germans" tortured near Stalingrad. Scum, and these Germans, and these Americans.

          And what's the difference, who called him there or not? Monsur saved his comrades by covering a grenade with his body. Only for this he is worthy of respect!
          So you don’t have to hobble, just show yourself from the wrong side ...

            I agree. Courage is worthy of respect and the enemy.
            One of our specialists once commented on the death of Sergeant Delta - "He left like a warrior. Peace be upon him."

      Well, yes, the railgun was covered with a copper basin, now with lasers they’ll come up with something, the same ingenious for excuses.
      And so yes, a very necessary steamer.

      Well done so what?
      They already have missile carriers in large numbers and at a much lower price. Zumwalt-s were considered as platforms for railguns, hence the increased power industry. Railguns were abandoned, at least for now, and now all this machinery will wear out completely for other purposes. It’s just that they have money, like a non-smoking shag, that dangles from one extreme to another like garbage in an ice hole.
      And why envy? Waste? God forbid. yes request laughing

        God forbid that the RF Ministry of Defense could boast of the same budget and could spend the same money.
        Yes, we spent a lot of money, on the other hand, we developed and tested new technologies that can later be used on less expensive and more massive projects. You can say they invested mainly in the okr. And this will give a push in the future in technology.

    Seeing, the second floating non-separable power plant of the Zumwalt system went to the test. By the way, I am glad that the railgun subject is still closed due to the high cost. And they planned to put a railgun for this marvel. I wish you happiness, chopped trough, so that you float like an iron, which is very similar.

    Cool ship, what else can I say. If ours could handle this, then they would have arranged a holiday on the forum :) and since all the negative comments, because of envy, well, of course, strengthening the enemy’s power certainly cannot please, but from the technical side and striking power, a good ship.

    All that remains is to grind our teeth with anger ... and we cannot give birth to Project 22350M frigates, and we will upgrade Nakhimov to the blueness ... however, we are building icebreakers very quickly and on time. And why? Yes, because in the Arctic, oil and gas are eaten at least backwards. And there came profit and wealth. And the presence of frigates and cruisers will not bring profit to our bureaucrats. Today I spit all day. Ugh.

      because it is not necessary to put a polymer-redoubt and UKKS on icebreakers, and if they are put on, then they will be built for 10-15 years.

        It’s not about Polent-Redoubt ... with normal financing, we would have finished this Polement-Redoubt a long time ago ... but only to whom did it rest in what place? And in the Arctic, grandmas are not comic. And he is financing the construction of these icebreakers, I am sure, both Rosneft and Gazprom.
        But people feed stories that there is NO MONEY in the country. That is, people are being held for the act of acting. Forgive me for being blunt.

    With all due respect to those present: how much can you spray with saliva? "Destroyers are considered experimental ships that will be the first to receive advanced weapons," a key proposal. Technology and new materials are being tested at this freak. Of course it's expensive ... for now, but! p and n d ostsy persistently move forward, study and most importantly, build. Let's somehow objectively, but with us: [media = https: //topwar.ru/131330-sroki-vyhoda-iz-r
    emonta-bpk-admiral-chabanenko-v-ocherednoy-raz-sd

    "In the Russian Federation plan create a mobile laser to fight ... where are they planning?
    RF CCS get another special aircraft of the IL brand ... the news is when they received it
    Baltic factory can get an order for two more icebreakers ... or maybe NOT to get a nifig at all
    and so on. It's time to finish dreaming, and start judging and sitting ... and then build
