Military Review

The Pentagon has rejected the accusations of auditors in the ill-conceived project of a new generation of submarines

19
American auditors have recently prepared a report in which they expressed doubts about the technical characteristics of new-generation Columbia-class submarines declared by the Pentagon. The military reject the findings of the Accounts Chamber.




In particular, the department doubts that the new development is “mature enough” technologically and will be able to meet the standards of scientific and technological progress.

At the moment, it is not known whether they (submarines) will work according to plan, are detained (in production) or cost more than expected,
quotes a report RIA News.

The Pentagon responded to the claims of the auditors, stating that the Navy is in control of the situation with the costs of the Columbia program, the schedule for its implementation and the characteristics of the submarines, including the risks associated with their design.

The Columbia class submarine program is capable of displaying the necessary technical capabilities at an affordable price in time for meeting the strategic requirements
said a spokesman for the US Navy Command Systems, William Coach.

Columbia submarines should replace the Ohio submarines. According to reports, their length will be about 170 m. New submarines will be able to carry 16 three-stage ballistic missiles "Trident II" in vertical mines with a length of 13,4 meters. It is planned to build 12 such submarines. The first boat should be built to 2028 year. The claimed service life of Columbia is about 40 years.

        The fact that in fluff is unambiguous (the meticulous controller got from Trump). And on the other hand, it’s simply impossible, albeit with an error, to build a new boat at an agreed price. There is only one thing on paper, and when assembling inconsistencies one cannot avoid, the product is new.

    or cost more than expected
    Judging by the new American planes, which were getting more expensive every week at the development and production stage, the nuclear submarines also expect the same. Americans learned to cut the military budget better than ours.

      It is easy to run a duck on a topic and point to non-existent accounts.

    Yes, which auditors? Audaud and sit yourself upright. Don’t bother spending good money on serious uncles. They have everything under control. Scheme Ford-Siwulf-Zumwalt-Columbia - it still works smile

    The Columbia submarines should replace the Ohio nuclear submarine. In total, it is planned to build 12 of such nuclear submarines. The first boat should be built by the 2028 year.

    Exemplary headlines for American media in 2028:
    The Columbia submarine sank upon entering the sea - the hull is corroded by sea water.
    The Pentagon cannot report on the $ 100 billion spent on the construction of Columbia submarines.
    The number of Columbia submarines required has been reduced from 12 to 2 due to the increased cost.
    The Pentagon requires NATO partners to buy unfinished Columbia submarines.
    Despite the sanctions, the United States is purchasing titanium from Russia for the construction of Columbia submarines.
    Elon Musk promises to build a conceptually new battery-powered submarine.

      Rather, due to the inflow of sea water through the stealth hatches, ala F-35)))

      The title in 2028 will be: "The first boat Columbia transferred to the US Navy."

    Well, of course, the Pentagon rejected the accusations of the auditors, a new project - a new cut in the budget.
