US Navy Presents Ship Procurement Plan to Congress

14
The command of the US Navy presented to Congress a long-term shipbuilding plan, implying an increase in the number of warships to 355 units by 2048, reports REGNUM.




The document contains plans for the purchase of ships for the US Navy from 2019 th to 2048 year. The main idea of ​​the plan is to accelerate the commissioning of new ships and stimulate the development of the country's shipbuilding capacities.

In particular, it is proposed to commission new aircraft carriers more than once in 5 years, and every 4 year. The basis of this proposal is the timing of decommissioning and repair of existing ships, which do not allow to constantly have 12 aircraft carriers in service.

It is also planned to purchase annually two Virginia-class multi-purpose submarines, and in parallel with this, the 12 will build new strategic Columbia-class submarines.

In addition, the Navy intends to extend the service life of part of warships and submarines in order to bring their total number to 2050 units by 355.

Recall, during his election campaign, the current president, Donald Trump, declared the need to increase the number of warships of the American fleet. According to open sources, by the end of 2017, the U.S. Navy had about 280 ships and more than 520 auxiliary vessels.

        Do you call the country washed by three oceans and 14 seas - continental? And Peter 1 apparently had nothing to do, the Navy was building? Oh well!!! Nothing hurts you? lol

          Hunter.
          You do not quite correctly understand the "maritime" and "continental" powers.
          Consider an example. Russia. The main trade routes are land. The main directions (military) - defense and attack - land. No one denies that Russia has access to the sea, but our mentality is continental.
          In contrast - England. The USA is the main trade route and the military route is the sea. The main feature of the mentality: sailed, bargained (attacked) - sailed away.

            Dear Sofa General! I'm afraid that you do not quite correctly understand the “maritime” and “continental” powers. And who in general tied you to the continent? Are you going to the Arctic (the main resource field) on ice, racing with polar bears? And to defend the heritage of our children, will you also go there in a tank? And the northern sea route, apparently on the advice of the old toad Albright, share the whole world? And the emerging markets of the same Brazil, India, African countries, Latin America - on ships under boat protection - will you supply?
            You correctly Komrad Nexus wrote about the balance. There is no RUSSIA without a strong fleet! hi

        The conversation is about the balance of our fleet. And today we have a warp on a warp. For example: The number of SSBNs relative to the number of multipurpose nuclear submarines. We are strengthening the coastal zone, and we are not building ocean surface ships of the first rank. Further ... We will upgrade Nakhimov, and in the ocean, who will cover our KUG with him from the air? No one is talking about trying to keep up with mattresses. We have the same 10 aircraft carriers to anything. But in order to feel normal in the open ocean, we need both multipurpose nuclear submarines in the proper quantity and surface ships of the first rank with air cover.

      100 billion a year for modernization and replenishment of the fleet, what can I say, With such funding, even Zamvolt and its problems seem to be just an annoying misunderstanding that does not affect the general condition of the Navy.

    I heard about the news through a dream saying that Leonov’s reconnaissance ship scanned J. Ford at the edge of the US Avik? That the steering wheels at the Ford flew into the garage had to be repaired, no one knows?

    It is proposed that new aircraft carriers be put into operation not every 5 years, but every 4 years.
