Second British Aircraft Carrier Launched

72
Yesterday, without special celebrations, the construction of the dry dock of the British shipbuilding enterprise Babcock Marine in Rosait (Scotland) was launched and towed to the outfitting quay of the aircraft carrier R 09 Prince of Wales - the second ship of the type Queen Elizabeth being built for the British Navy, reports bmpd.




The ship was removed from the construction dock under heavy fog conditions, which gave the action an additional touch of mystery.



“The production of sections of the second ship Prince of Wales was launched in May 2011, the ship was built in the construction dock No. 1 Babcock Marine in Rosaite since the end of 2014. The baptism ceremony Prince of Wales was performed on 8 on September 2017, the resource reminds.



The launch of the aircraft carrier for testing is scheduled for mid 2019 year. It is expected that the ship will reach alert in 2023 year.

It is noted that "Prince of Wales will be the largest ship of the Royal fleet в storiesBecause, in view of the changes and improvements made to the second ship project, it will have a full displacement of 3000 tons more than Queen Elizabeth (the design final displacement of the latter in most sources is defined as 70600 tons).

        Remember how two fighter jets fell into the sea during the execution of a combat mission from the smug Kuzi due to gross pilot errors.

            It does not matter. During one combat mission, 2 aircraft were lost in separate incidents. This is what matters. I don’t remember such a situation with the Anglo-Saxons you hate. And if it happened, I can imagine how much joy and relishing you would have

              Moscow. The 21st of April. INTERFAX.RU - The American F / A-18E carrier-based fighter bomber crashed while landing on the US Navy aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, Fox News reported citing a statement from the US Seventh Fleet. According to the statement, the pilot managed to eject, and he was picked up from the water. The pilot was not injured.

              The incident occurred in the Sulawesi Sea south of the Philippines during a regular flight F / A-18E. The military is investigating the causes of the incident. At the same time, according to Fox News, the statement is unclear what the current state of the F / A-18E is. The U.S. Navy carrier strike group, led by nuclear-powered aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, is currently moving from Singapore to the Sea of ​​Japan. According to representatives of the Navy, the purpose of these maneuvers is a demonstration of US power off the coast of the DPRK. The group is expected to arrive in the region next week.

                By the way, mig29k wasn’t even lost. Rather, partly. The 29th returned to the ship but there were problems with the cables and it was launched into the waiting area to wind circles above the ship. Here, honestly, the pilot is also to blame a little - he circled to the last, which ultimately led to the engine stopping on the glide path due to the complete exhaustion of fuel and had to leave the ABSOLUTELY CORRECT NEW MIG29 !!!! He had to send all these commanders in the ass and chuhim on Khmeimim - a maximum of a strict worker would have gotten it. Well, su33 here, of course, there is no doubt the cables.

                  England is a Great Sea Power, steadily observing the sacred maritime traditions. The aircraft carrier is named in memory of the battleship of the same name that participated in the battle with Bismarck, and, subsequently, died under Japanese bombs. On the Black Sea, the leader of “Tashkent” and the destroyer-seven “Impeccable” heroically died under German bombs. And where are the ships of the modern Soviet / Russian Navy, named in memory of THESE dead ships?

            Who cares?! The fact that Kuzya is a bucket of bolts and fuel oil and the combat value of Kuzya is not particularly high, against the Navy of the same "little shaves", I am generally silent about Americans. The trip to the coast of Syria was a purely propaganda campaign for domestic consumption, for a bunch of lards several planes were taken to Syria. Fell into the sea Drying and Mig is just the bottom! After all, they armed, coordinated the aircraft with Kuzi from the ground, and not with Kuzi, there wasn’t such a 24-hour continuous conveyor of bombing as the US Navy did.

    The joke is that the mistress of the seas of Britain has not been shining for a long time, and for the projection of force, as the Yankees do, the Britons again do not shine in any way. Unless again to adjust to the Falkleans and scare Argentina ... again, if they get scared.

        On the topic - the projection of force, the conventional name of a very complex military - logistic operation. It is not enough to have a large, combat-ready army; one must be able to relocate a sufficient part of these troops to the proposed theater of operations. Technically a very complicated operation.
        So, not many people have such an opportunity, especially outside their territory!

    Although they are under the warm wing of America, they are still trying to be “on a level” militarily. Of course, Russia’s introduction of this Prince of Wales is absolutely up to the mark, we are with England in different weight categories (they are green to compete with us). But what does a country like Germany think about this? Or have they already spit on everything and men in skirts and stiletto heels are going out for all sorts of stocks?

      The universal confrontation between the Bosh and the Britons! When was it? They are kind of like allies, harnessed to one cart, and on the irradiation it is clear who!

        Yes it was once. 70 years ago, 100 years ago. So yes, they are all in the same cart now. But as they say, a dagger is good for someone who has it. So I wonder, the Germans will pay and repent for a long time, pay and repent.

          But this is a really interesting question!
          Plus, the Britons seemed to have split off, in part, from a large European ship!
          Time, time will tell us, especially in Bosnland not everything is in order!

    England is no longer the mistress of the seas ... the shame with their ships all continues ....

    Remember how two fighter jets fell into the sea during the execution of a combat mission from the smug Kuzi due to gross pilot errors.

    Congratulations to the Royal Navy with a new thing !!!

    Oh come on! Have you forgotten about the mattress carrier? Also lost a couple of planes after Kuzi?

    Britain is an island. Plus mistress of the seas (was). Her status of such "compasses" put. Whether she will apply them someday or not is a big question, but I think she can afford the content. By the way, did you notice the number of tugboats involved in the movements? And you say why do we need so many tugboats ?! There are not many attendants, however. Good evening to all.

        Well, what to do, what to do ?! Capitalism is in the yard. Everything around is capitalist, everything around is not mine. For what they fought, they ran into that (right now, I recall a bunch of sayings). God bless him - to work tomorrow. I will strengthen the defense power of the country. It’s more like holidays. Exhausts for 10-11 hours stoke however.

    After a couple of years they will have a modern core of the surface fleet:
    2 aircraft carriers, 6 destroyers, 12 frigates. Not dense, but not empty for an ocean power.

      Most likely in a couple of years we will not care what they have with the fleet.
      The fleet is a big expense, the big fleet is oooh ...
      They know, they mean masters in fact. but they won’t be able to .... we need something from that ???
