In Peru, factory testing of the amphibious assault helicopter AMR 156 Pisco, built at the shipyard SIMA, began bmpd.




It is reported that the construction of the ship was carried out according to the project and with the assistance of the South Korean corporation Dae Sun Shipbuilding & Engineering Co., Ltd.

The contract for the construction of two ships was signed in 2013 year. Initially it was assumed that both of them would be transferred to the Navy in 2015.

Construction of the first helicopter carrier cost about $ 60 million began only in the second half of 2014. The second ship was laid at the end of last year.

“The landing helicopter docks are relatively small - standard displacement of 7300 tons, and total displacement of 11390 tons. The ship is 122 meters long, 22 meters wide and has a draft of 4,9 meters. The power plant consists of two MAN B&W 9L28 / 32A diesel engines with 3000 hp each, providing a speed of up to 16,5 knots. The cruising range is up to 14 thousand miles, ”the article says.

The ship has a small dock chamber, which houses two 23-meter landing craft type LCU, and on the cargo deck - up to 24 units of armored vehicles of the LAV II armored personnel carrier class. The flight deck has two runways for Sikorsky UH-3 / SH-3D class helicopters. 157 manned crews and up to 400 marines are stationed on the ship.

    Factory tests of a landing helicopter dock ship began in Peru

    Well, why is it? So what would it be? what
    For landing ships, we need the concept of "war on foreign territory." Why is Peru completely incomprehensible. They cannot pull any expansion or support from an ally. So why was there money to spend on a landing ship? Moreover, the ship itself, without landing facilities, is simply a big "tin".
    In general, it is not clear. request negative

      Indeed, why a country with 2000km of sea line. A country with 2 Marines brigades, with equipment (LAVs, Pegasus). With Chile's best "friend" (who has his own DKVD), amphibious assault ships are needed? By the way, Chile is still thicker than Fudr. But when Peru introduces both ships - here Peru will become THICKER.

      Especially at a cheap price (three rook).

      As for the rest, they have everything. TDK they have. Small boats too. Helicopters - Sikorski, Bell. Yes, even 2 Mi-17 can be kept - if without a hangar base (on the runway).

      Type in Yandex "the second Pacific war." Old grievances apparently make themselves felt.

    Clearly, aggression against the United States was conceived. Landing in California. While the Americans are in Syria, Afghanistan and Europe. Wring out the peninsula and hello to Hollywood ...

    Outwardly resembles the Dutch "Johan de Witt". When he was at the naval salon in St. Petersburg, he was offered to us as an alternative to Mistral. I managed to visit it, the ship was successful. If they took it, maybe there wouldn’t be this headache with the Mistrals, and Grena wouldn’t have to wait so long .... The Peruvians built their own in 4 years ...

      Johan is different. He is bigger. Another architecture. A joint venture of Spain and the Netherlands with the active inclusion in the cooperation of the defense industry of the EU and the USA. Most likely there would have come across coordination even then.

      Makassar (this is Makassar in localization for Peru, there is for the Philippines - Tarlak has already delivered 2 ships) - a very successful project that is being actively bought up (won Malaysia recently). The bottom line is that it is an adult DKVD with modularity, which offers:
      - a landing battalion with equipment, with all standard landing methods (2 TDK, amphibious on its own for marine infantry groups on BMP / BTR, helicopters, high-speed boats), on a pier, an expedition expeditionary ship or a floating platform.
      - unlimited seaworthiness, good driving performance and autonomy.
      - a large% of convertible areas - that is, it is a universal ship that can be converted directly to the task on the go.
      - the modularity of the project itself, there are any variations, for any energy, with a long and short dock camera, with a large and small hangar, with 2 and 3 platforms.

      And all this for only 50-65 million dollars, at the highest construction rate in Surabaya (20 months). Peru decided to get hold of the technology and modernization of the Sim shipyards - so they suffered and doubled the term.


      And yes - you can buy it even now. Moreover, at a discount or even barter for Su-35 - instead of palm oil at 50% of the price of the aircraft.


      There is a slight inaccuracy in the article - all rights to the project now belong to PT PAL Corporation. They are engaged in its marketing, development and construction. Koreans are a contractor.

    Can we buy this ship and order a dozen more in Peru? For such money in Russia we can’t even build a hull, not like a ship with such a displacement

    Yoptit Peru! Shame and shame! We can’t do a helicopter carrier ourselves.
