The timing of the development of a new American submarine can be broken

29
The program to build a new generation of Columbia-class strategic-class submarine cruisers may face cost overruns and unexpected delays due to new technologies that need to be tested, reports Defence.ru with reference to the report of the General Budget Office of the United States.




Management specialists have concluded that it will be possible to determine how successful and applicable innovative design solutions are only during the testing and operation of the first model of a new generation submarine. In particular, “we are talking about testing a reactor with an improved core that does not require intermediate recharging,” also “the power supply system, rocket launchers and propulsion unit are to be tested.”

As a result, at the moment it is not known whether they will earn as expected, whether additional time will be required for their revision and whether their value will not rise above the planned limits. All these circumstances increase the risk that the construction of the first Columbia class submarine will not be completed as scheduled before the 2031 year, the report says.

The timing of the development of a new American submarine can be broken


According to the plans of the Navy, 12 Columbia-class missile carriers will replace 14 Ohio class submarines currently in service. The delay in the creation of a new submarine may affect the nuclear potential of the United States, the Ohio nuclear submarines will begin to decommission fleet as early as 2027 due to the end of the service life.

Initially, the command intended to complete most of the research before the construction of the first submarine began, in order to reduce the risk of budget growth, however, the management noted that the fleet recently signed a new contract to develop individual components and parts of Columbia, “while critical for the entire project technologies remain untested. "

Specialists of the department reminded that this practice led to an excess of the planned budget and delays in the delivery schedule of the newest destroyer Zumwalt and the aircraft carrier of the class Gerald Ford.

The construction of the lead submarine cruiser is estimated to cost $ 12,4 billion, of which 4,8 billion will be spent on R & D. In total, the program of the new generation of submarines is estimated at $ 267 billion for the entire service life of these submarines, which should be more than 40 years. Of this amount, 128 billion will be spent on research, development and purchase of 12-submarines.

    Well, not all of our deadlines are shifted "to the right" ... Well, all the newest and the most modern are created with difficulty, with great difficulty ...

      Saws and kickbacks are welcome. After that, it is possible to work out the technology in parts. Leisurely. Lobbyists have their share necessarily.

      Everything on Boreyam-B is still very foggy for us.
      And Husky also has a lot of questions and uncertainties. Despite the fact that we need a Husky much more than Colombia, USA, given the quantitative superiority of mattresses and NATO as a whole.

          Then go to bed and die right away - the USA is an economic, cultural, intellectual and military locomotive. With all due respect to China, he is far from the States. Where to fall apart, hello? Get up from the monitor, go into the kitchen, wash your face with cold water. Hangover if necessary.

            And yet it will fall apart. And your words “cultural, intellectual” are not applicable to the USA, because the “culture” was stupidly stolen by the Americans from human civilization. The only thing that they brought to the culture is the farting and vomiting scenes in their comedy films, which causes laughter only among Americans. As for the “intellectuality”, here it is also past - Americans from intellect have only money for which they buy their brains around the world.

              Culture cannot be stolen. What nonsense. American writers, laureates of multiple awards, including the Nobel Prize, also stole something there? Edgar Alan Poe, Loughcraft, Bradbury, Hemingway, Selinger, and so on and so forth. Are they thieves? The fact that you’re a stupid idiot and don’t know anything other than American blockbusters only speaks of your poor mind. Here you are obviously a fan of farting and vomiting. Yes, even their blockbusters are utterly higher than the crap that is being removed from us now. Compare Blade Runner, Alien or Interstellar and which thread of Bondarchuk Jr’s vyser. So yes, before the collapse of the States you have to wait a few lives.

                Sir, do not confuse God's gift with fried eggs. Culture has been shaped for centuries, and your "contingent America" ​​is roughly 300 years old. What has she been able to form during this time from cultural values ​​unique to the American nation except that - "What cannot be achieved in a word, can be achieved with the help of Colt"?

                No, they are not thieves, they just form the US culture from a heap of cultures inflicted by immigrants from Europe, Africa and Asia. And yet, yes, Nobel in our time is not a sign of culture and decency. Obama is an example. Having received the Nobel Prize as a peacemaker, he unleashed several wars and shed the blood of tens of thousands of innocent people. He is also a peacemaker-laureate.

                You are an optimist))) but the more disappointing will be when your idol collapses during your lifetime. No, the United States will not disappear, but leadership, both in the economy and in politics, will lose unambiguously, which does not depend on mine or your Wishlist, it just happens.

        I don’t agree. Perhaps the most sustainable thing in the world is the US Navy rearmament schedules. See how the generation change schedules of aircraft carriers, destroyers, and nuclear submarines were carried out. The bowler in the bowler for decades.

          At your reluctance / disagree, people will put a huge bolt.
          Dear, I’m sorry, but you are not looking at those schedules.
          I certainly understand that you are looking at the current "chief" ... but you run the risk of being very mistaken ...
          The next "main thing" is China.
          So smoothly, switch from Hebrew to Chinese, well, at least simplified .... and don’t need to grind the foreskin - learn, do not get anywhere. for you are small fry ...
          in the next century there will be three languages: Chinese, New Russian (Sanskrit will also be included in it) and a new surzhik: a set of "ivvrop" + "Arabic". Options are possible, but hardly much. Once again: Chinese, New Russian, and Novosurgik. if I am wrong, then lift my carcass from a cozy grave - I will be very dissatisfied ...

      Hello, hello! They don’t have a “cabin”, they have a retractable fence with an upper deck hatch, which, judging by the picture, is located above the CPU. By the way, the “tunnel” leads from the 1-th compartment to the partition of the device №1 HAK, that is, the receiver-emitter compartment. But in the tunnel there is a hatch with a coaming platform of the rescue compartment, but it is outside the 1 compartment. The other salvage compartment is in the 3 compartment, which is also a residential and instrument warhead-2, judging by the scheme. And in the 8 turbine there is a tube with a coaming pad ... Through TA, they are unlikely to climb , it’s painfully long: from the 1 go beyond the boundaries of the PC enclosure in the bow, and even on the third deck ...
      So you don’t need to escape from the last compartment ...
