In the United States "christened" a new catamaran

USNS Burlington high-speed landing craft at the port of Mobile


In 2008, the US Navy signed with Austal USA a contract for the construction of twelve vessels developed as part of the Joint High Speed ​​Vessel (JHSV) project. The class of high-speed amphibious ships was called the Spearhead, and the project itself was later renamed Expeditionary Fast Transport (EPF).

USNS Burlington became the tenth ship in its class and received the T-EPF 10 prefix for the title. The laying of the vessel took place in September last year, and USNS Burlington is to join US Navy by the end of this year. Two more ships - Puerto Rico (EPF 11) and Newport (EPF 12) - are in various stages of construction.

Spearhead vessels are catamaran-shaped and are used as naval support units. fleet (not included in the combat structure). The displacement of each vessel exceeds 1500 tons, while they can carry up to 600 tons of payload, have a platform and a hangar for a helicopter. Due to the high speed of 43 knots (80 km / h), these vessels are used for the prompt transfer of cargo, machinery, equipment and personnel of the US Navy. "Warspot"

      How many “blacks” should pedal to move this “engine” - a catamaran?

        Very necessary and good ship. Presumably, from the curses and ill-will of users of the site, they will not become bad. And the production speed is impressive! Well done, you can’t say anything!

      I wonder how much this catamaran can accommodate “200” cargo in pieces when sent to its native shores. recourse

        Whatever you say, and the speed of building ships with mattresses is impressive, here we need to catch up to have such a pace of building ships for our Navy.

    Each vessel has a sailing capacity of more than 1500 tons, while they can carry up to 600 tons of payload, have a platform and a hangar for a helicopter.

    A good boat for operational maneuver by forces in amphibious operations, fully in the concept of Amer marines ... Horned under his belly and deeper depth ..

    By the way, if these "Christians" baptize their ships and vessels, then do the Israelites circumcise with theirs? Why cut it off? And what are Muslims doing?

      The pace is more than the practice of building catamarans. Now they would drive to Syria and back. As always, our invent a break-in and ..... silence! Cunning guys will raise, blow dust, and then they will also sell it to us.

          In the photo 616 MRS-Samum ...---- The Samum missile ship is a small hovercraft (MRK) on an air cushion as part of the 41st missile boat brigade of the Crimean Naval Base of the Black Sea Fleet, project 1239.
          It is the largest in its subclass in the practice of Russian and world shipbuilding high-speed combat ship using a hydrodynamic platform - aerostatic catamaran Speed ​​55 knots (101,9 km / h)

    People, abstract a little bit! Leave jealousy, bitterness and bile: look how handsome he is! See how it goes on water, with what little resistance! Yes, our old commander’s boats seriously waved a wave, and here - no wave formation - what an elegant engineering solution! Because 80km / h.
    Yes, you can dig for flaws: the armament power is not like that of a cruiser, there is little aviation - not an example of an aircraft carrier, it does not immediately take an entire regiment of marines - but a handsome man. In addition, he is a simple paratrooper - he will always go to work in serious security.

    An adversary is under construction, needless to say, under construction ... A modern ship is waved to itself.

    the practice of building catamarans is

    The oldest ship in the Black Sea Fleet - a catamaran-rescue submarine was developed back in 1911 by order of the Naval General Staff. As a prototype, a German rescue catamaran was used. See https://topwar.ru/16967-stareyshee-deystvuyuschee
