American Zumwalt again interrupted testing due to breakage

73
The newest US destroyer USS Zumwalt on December 5 was forced to interrupt tests due to a breakdown and return to the shipyard in Maine for repairs, reports RIA News Post USNI News.




“One day after departure from the shipyard, harmonic filters failed at the ship, which protect sensitive electrical equipment from unwanted power fluctuations. The destroyer lost the ability to use a complex electrical network with high loads, "- said in a statement.

The resource reminds that the high-tech invisible destroyer, launched in the autumn of 2016, has already been repaired several times: “first it became known about leaks in the ship’s power plant, a month later the heat exchangers were out of service, after which the destroyer had to be towed to the base”.

In addition, the destroyer was very expensive to operate, even by the standards of the US Armed Forces. A shot from the newest cannon, which the destroyer is equipped with, costs the US budget $ 800 thousand, while the cost of the ship itself is 4,4 billion. Earlier it was reported that the Navy had to reduce the purchase plan for ships from 28 units to three.

                  No one will remain in service when hit by a decent caliber. There is no armor at all. 1144 and aircraft carriers are an exception, of course.
                  Over at the Britons, the destroyer sank simply because a PRK with an engine running stuck in it (without exploding).
                  One squiggle - Zamvolt’s caliber allows you to shoot TNW quite far and at the same time it is hardly noticeable. So it’s better - let it break. Constantly. hi

        Can you please tell me why the local sailors have purple automatics? Yes, and pistols stick out purple. I remember that the Americans in ancient times adopted the law that toy weapons should have an unreal color. Or is it still a military weapon? Then why should he have such a color?

    They have a lot of money, perseverance, identity. Talented professionals from all over the planet are lured!
    The first pancake can be lumpy, a negative result can also become a forward movement.
    The best appraiser for weapons is battle / war, but with the help of advertising and ostentatious performances, you can convince many, it was just as planned, i.e. that's right.
    If you connect Hollywood, then this trough (in fact, for now) can fly into space with them. Phantasmagoria.

    Even if we take for granted the above.

    I recall how, being still young and stupid, probably 20 years ago, I offered my management know-how. Do not rush to blame me for bragging, I borrowed the idea myself. But even taking into account the presented foreign developments, I was refused. My boss frankly liked the idea, we discussed this more than once while staying at work, being a straightforward and “old-school” person, he argued that we wouldn’t succeed from the first, from the second, even from the fifth, and on the second unsuccessful attempt we will be replaced by sexual orientation by force (it was expressed in simpler terms). Recently, monitoring foreign resources, I noticed that young children abroad reached the finish line as winners, I am sure that this “idea” will soon come into practice, if it has not already entered. Probably, later we will borrow it.

    Yes, Zamvolt will probably fail more than once in an accident, fire, breakdown. Probably after some time they will refuse him. But this is the development of technology, an attempt to learn and learn new things. And, I am sure of this, the knowledge that is developed "on it" will form the basis of a truly great ship, a work of art.

    Only he who does nothing is not mistaken. I am sad to read most of the comments on this article.

      What's new in it? What new technologies are worked out on it? Look carefully and you will see for yourself that everything "new" in it is already used somewhere by someone. And the only thing that is really revolutionary in it is price.

    I don’t know what exactly is new on it and what exactly technologies are being worked out on it (I’m generally far from shipbuilding). But I’m sure that if a ship with a displacement of almost 15 tons serves personnel of almost 000 people (according to available data, a ship of the Arly Burke class with a displacement of about 150 tons serves personnel of about 9 people; a ship of the Orlan class, Peter the Great) , with a displacement of about 000 tons, it serves about 350 people) there is still something revolutionary in it.
