UK will postpone the creation of two new nuclear submarines

38
The command of the British Armed Forces intends to postpone the creation of the seventh and eighth nuclear-powered submarines with Astute-type missile and torpedo armament in order to save money. It is reported TASS, referring to the British newspaper Daily Express, which managed to get acquainted with the relevant document of the Navy.


According to its authors, the construction of submarines "may be delayed." According to experts, this "will seriously affect the [defense] potential."

UK will postpone the creation of two new nuclear submarines


Thus, the British Navy will be armed with six submarines of this type instead of eight, as was planned in the defense program to effectively protect both Vanguard-equipped submarines equipped with Trident missiles and the United Kingdom from the enemy.

In the next decade, according to a British media report, the country's military budget may be reduced by £ 20 billion ($ 27,7 billion). At the same time, plans were developed to reduce the size of the army by more than 14 thousand people. It is intended, in particular, to combine the units of paratroopers and marines.

Astute is the most modern type of British Navy submarines, they were designed in the second half of the 1990-s and became the further development of the Trafalgar submarines. According to the Daily Express, these submarines are equipped with sonars that are able to detect ships leaving New York Harbor, while underwater in the English Channel.

    It is supposed, in particular, to unite the units of paratroopers and marines.
    But it’s interesting, but the fighters of the new unit will bear the name of the MIDDLE kind or what?

      Not bad. Around 7,5 t. Km. Three such sonars can cover the entire Atlantic ...

    It remains to understand which ship left the port of New York.
    They come out there at 100 pieces per hour.

    The British in their repertoire.
    And our submarines chase under their noses, but they don’t hear them.

      each engine makes a unique noise, this print does not make any problem by putting the equipment in key ports. All this diversity can be controlled by a small number of modern sonar buoys and ships in one network, and one supercomputer.

    That's right, then what to finish building them - you can control the oceans from the English Channel. They probably also have torpedoes with the same range. Then this boat is just an invulnerable miracle weapon !!! laughing
    But in fact, the reason pleases, and God forbid that it further interferes with the Britons to build something serious. So that they did not have enough money for the normal maintenance of the army and navy. Even if the Americans themselves continue to drag their NATO on their mighty financial shoulders, they will not be enough for a long time either.

    IMHO linden. About the model 2076 sonar it is usually written that a boat located in Winchester will be able to track a double-decker bus traveling along Trafalgar Square ”(distance of about 60 miles). But 60 miles is about 100-120 km, depending on which miles you measured. But 120 km and 7000 km are still slightly different things.

    And here HZ why. A boat costs about 1,6 billion pounds or $ 2,26 billion. They should have let it down only in 2024 (7th building - Ajax). It's about 7 years. Divide the price by 7 years a year will get only 300 million dollars. Within 10 years, the military budget is planned to be reduced by 20 billion f.s. or $ 27,6 billion. $ 2,7 billion annually.
    Something the British were too clever with their calculations. Although the fact that there are fewer boats is good for us.
