The newest British aircraft carrier has flowed two weeks after commissioning

62
The newest, recently commissioned, the largest British aircraft carrier, Queen Elizabeth, has leaked due to a malfunction, the Daily Mail newspaper reports.


According to the publication, a problem with the shaft seal occurred a couple of weeks after the start of service of the aircraft carrier as part of the Royal Naval fleet. Now the ship has to pump out 200 liters of water per hour.

The newest British aircraft carrier has flowed two weeks after commissioning


A problem was found with shaft seal (pump operation). Now the aircraft carrier will go to repair, while he is near Portsmouth
- the newspaper quotes the representative of the Royal Navy.

In early December, it was reported that the aircraft carrier, whose value exceeds three billion pounds, began service as part of the British Royal Navy after the ceremony of "baptism" at the naval base in Portsmouth.

The ship with a displacement of 65 thousand tons and a length of 280 meters is capable of speeds up to 25 nodes. It can accommodate up to 1,6 thousands of crew members, and the standard aircraft group of the ship has up to 40 airplanes and helicopters.

    For a new ship, an almost normal situation: some schools of builders crawled out with the participation of an undeveloped crew. On our ship, on sea trials, a spontaneously bowed bow thruster was torn off altogether - they took several tens of tons of Baltic vodka in a minute. There was still a situation - the anchor surrendered on the move and tore off the chain. The evil brigade commander only then gritted his teeth: Well, look on the sides, maybe it will come up ...

          The Britons always always had cool ships, it was not for nothing that she was called the “trendsetter” in this. They dampened their glory, but very slightly.
          I do not argue, it is difficult to eliminate, it is unprofitable, but only because the units are VERY massive.
          Let's see what happens next, either everything is bad or normal, then we’ll evaluate it.

            their ships were just mostly mediocre (the same jutland would not let the Germans lie less and they have less losses, I don’t think it was a coincidence) they certainly built and were very successful, but mostly by little, and the base of the fleet was average, they just needed a lot and the outstanding ones didn’t always have enough money, so they built it to have enough everywhere

              Sales masterpieces in mass production are averaged, but savings.
              Such beautiful ships all of themselves, Italians built, but few.
              The British, Germans rivals of course, in the battle many factors for victory "work"!
              Now many have lost such a major quality of the fleet, the army. aviation - efficiency, however where to check it, there is one criterion for evaluating this war.
              So it’s better not to, we believe in advertising and all business, let their pride amuse!

      Oh, that was the Paganini of command language! I can’t even reproduce those passages. It happens: you meet something with a person and you understand that you can’t do any better. One of my Teachers, captain of the 2nd rank Vasily Stepanovich Osadchy, a gypsy and Nakhimov recruiter in 1944, had such a shoulder tattoo (a ship under all sails) that I realized that I could not find a master who could repeat or create such a work of art never, so you should not even try. And avoided the holes in the skin. Why then didn’t I decide so with the brigade commander?

    Queen Elizabeth leaked
    Symbolically. It is interesting, and where did the English scrupulousness, accuracy, accuracy go. Or is this not the case with shipbuilders? Something does not stick in the English fleet and army. Probably the result of this attack on Russia and its army.

    In this case, it is difficult to judge how and why this problem arose. Moreover, it is not entirely clear what failed. Either the oil seals (or whatever) of the propeller shaft, or the water pump (again, it is not clear where). Therefore, do not rush to declare the ship crap. Still, the aircraft carrier is a serious car. Do not be likened to the same British - who hailed our Admiral Kuznetsov.

    So 200 liters per hour for a ship of this size is a trifle. I somehow accidentally was in the hold of one of our guard, so there was water knee-deep. And I was told that this is quite normal. Especially large leaks are treated with cement backfill.
