The second of the three. US Navy received Zumwalt type destroyer Michael Monsoor


Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001) - the second in a series of three new-generation destroyers designed for the US Navy. The first of them - Zumwalt (DDG 1000) - was completed in December 2015 of the year and in May last year entered the disposal of the US Navy, passing sea trials. The third ship of the series - Lyndon B. Johnson (DDG 1002) - is in the final stages of construction.

The program to create a new generation of destroyers was launched in the US in the 90-s and has undergone many changes. It was originally planned to build a destroyer 32, then the program was gradually reduced to two ships, after which the US Department of Defense allocated funds for the construction of a third ship of this class. Americans consider Zumwalt-type ships experimental, on the basis of which a series of destroyers will be developed to replace the Arleigh Burke type.

USS Michael Monsoor is one of the largest and heaviest ships in its class. The destroyer length is 183 m, full displacement - 13 200 t. Basic armament includes 80 launchers for missiles, two artillery mounts and two anti-aircraft installations Mk. 110 caliber 57 mm.

        Yeah, they always look at the price. If only because drown this iron and the country's economy will receive a very serious kick. And to give him cover from the usual forces of the fleet ..... Could it be easier to build 6 pieces of simple missile frigates? The total power of a volley is not worse, and sinking 6 units is immediately more difficult than one .... And this is even if you are sitting on a printing press. Well, you can’t print without restriction. The economic icon will collapse.

          Well, are you all worried about them? Dear boat, not expensive. We should not think about the price for Americans, but about the answer to this "miracle." That we can oppose it. Well, of course, that the answer was much cheaper.

        Lesha either I or skis wrong ..

        I’m reading ... Basic armament includes 80 missile launchers, two artillery mounts and two Mk anti-aircraft mounts. 110 caliber 57 mm.



        As costs increased many times, and the number of ships of this class dropped from 32 to just three, the widely publicized Advanced Gun System (AGS) artillery seemed to be useless, as the price of a 155 mm Long Range Land Attack Projectiles (LRLAP) shot up from dozens thousand dollars to at least 800 thousand dollars per unit. These dramatically increased costs prompted the Navy to abandon plans to purchase any additional LRLAP. Thus, in the foreseeable future, Zumwalt will not be able to rely on the use of its heavy-duty and extremely expensive guns, as promised.

        With its current price of $ 800 thousand per shot, the LRLAP shell provides the same 11 kilograms of explosive as the 700-dollar M795 ammunition. Of course, LRLAP significantly surpasses it in range and accuracy, but at a price ahead of 1100 times. The Tomahawk cruise missile, carrying a 500-pound warhead and costing $ 1 million, provides about 30 times the payload of $ 1, and is 15 times ahead of LRLAP in range. If we also take into account the complex and bulky automatic stores of the new Advanced Gun System and the automated loading and unloading of ammunition, we get an unreliable system that provides truly tiny explosive power for every dollar invested.

        Missionless warship

        Zumwalt is a real disaster. It is clear that he is not suitable as a first-line ship. Given that his cannon is “castrated,” his role as the main asset of anti-submarine operations is in question, anti-aircraft combat qualities are inferior to the old workhorse, the destroyer of the Arleigh Burke class, and its protection from radars is far from advertising promises, it seems that Zumwalt is a ship without a task.

        And if so, how will the Navy use Zumwalt? Eric Wertheim, author and editor of the book The American Naval Institute’s Guide to Combating the Various Fleets of the World, noted that “with only three ships, this class of destroyers could become something like a (exceptionally expensive) technology demonstration project. And he is not alone in his opinion.

          "It is clear that he is not suitable as a ship of the first line" ////

          Where does this conclusion come from? He has 80 missile launch cells. The Americans began the release of their new generation RRC LRASM. This will be his first-line weapon in the fight against enemy squadrons. And his guns nevertheless are the most long-range in the world (although not as much as they wanted).

            IMHO Naval battle with enemy squadrons has not been relevant since the middle of the 20th century. Zumwalt was conceived as a representative of "diplomacy of destroyers": stealthily approached, hit targets on the shore, depending on the result, "demonstrated the flag" and technological superiority or quietly washed off. Well, it turned out to be too expensive for these purposes. winked

        The guns have already been abandoned. Shells in the cost of the Tomahawks came out. laughing
        They haven’t come up with a replacement yet. According to the plan, they were supposed to interact with littoral ships, but there was also a bummer. This year not a single littoral will achieve combat readiness. Epic Fail. hi

            The English fleet has always had innovations. But there have always been assembly defects. Super-quality Angichans never suffered. Any leakage of oil seals, vibration - the disease of many large ships. Especially, built just a couple of copies, not massive.

          Yes, I partially agree. But, the use of plywood and wood in the production of the superstructure of this destroyer is not very similar to advanced technologies. Although it is clear that this is to facilitate the design. And in this regard, I have a question - what will happen to this add-in when a wave of a strong storm hits it?

              No high side will save from the big wave. This destroyer will hang out in a big storm, like a sliver on the waves, and I doubt very much that the plywood will withstand the onslaught of waves in which there are more than one hundred tons of water.

      hi On June 18, 2016, a baptism ceremony was held at the shipyard. The ship was named USS "Michael Monsoor" (DDG-1001) in honor of the 2nd class foreman Michael A. Monsoor (1981–2006), who died during the Iraq war and was posthumously awarded the Order of Honor. The godmother was Sally Monsoor, the mother of the deceased sergeant Monsoor, who, according to maritime tradition, broke a bottle of champagne in the bow of the ship.

    Engines: 2 x Rolls-Royce Marine Trent-30 GTU. Power 78 MW.
    Armament:
    Radar weapons: AN / SPY-3.
    Tactical strike weapons: 20 × UVK Mk.57 for 80 Tomahawk, ASROC or ESSM missiles.
    Artillery: 2 × 155 mm AGS AU (920 rounds, of which 600 in automatic loaders).
    Anti-aircraft artillery: 2 × 57 mm Mk. 110.
    Missile weapons: RIM-162 ESSM.
    Anti-submarine weapons: RUM-139 VL-Asroc.

    On December 04, 2017, he left the shipyard and went along the Kennebek River to the Atlantic Ocean to pass the first stage of sea trials. On December 05, during testing, problems arose in the electrical system and the ship returned to the shipyard. On the destroyer, a harmonic filter failed to protect the equipment from voltage surges. As a result, he lost the ability to use a complex electrical network at high loads during the tests bully .

    In fact, the ship is innovative, the only question is demand. For example, following the results of Tsushima, linear battlecruisers were cut, as a result: Doger Bank and Jutland proved the fallacy of such a path. But the solutions tested on them were used on other ships. I think the same thing here: Zumwalt is a colonial ship, and if there are no colonies, why use it?

    In any case, he met expectations or not, but decided to build an experimental series. It is possible that similar ships in architecture were most likely planned by us, but they didn’t go. And what are expensive? Well, single ones are always expensive. Remember our "goldfish".
    Something implemented on these EMs will probably be used in a series of new destroyers that will replace Berkov
