The press service of Huntington Ingalls Industries, which is building a new aircraft carrier for the US Navy, announced that it was ahead of schedule to build the ship John F. Kennedy (CVN 79), Warspot reports.


With ahead of schedule. US Navy can get a new aircraft carrier ahead of schedule


Aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy is scheduled to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2019, and in 2022 it should become part of the American fleet. At the same time, Huntington Ingalls Industries indicate that these dates can be shifted. At the moment, the ship’s hull is 75% ready (40% total readiness), and its construction is three months ahead of schedule.

In mid-April, the last major part of the hull was installed on the aircraft carrier, which was the 341 of the 447 elements. In Huntington Ingalls Industries indicate that they took into account the mistakes made in the construction of the aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford (the ship was commissioned with a delay of two years), and are now ready to significantly speed up and reduce the cost of building subsequent ships of the same type.

Gerald R. Ford aircraft carriers have a length of 337 m, maximum width - 78 m, displacement of the order of 100 000 t and are designed for 90 aircraft and helicopters. According to the technical description, on these ships it is planned to deploy the F-35, F / A-18E / F Super Hornet, EA-18G Growler aircraft, as well as the MH-60R / S helicopters.

      X moment. The timer has worked. The lock on the opening of the Kingston port side is removed. They started to open. Water began to flow into the hold spaces. Twenty seconds later, the sensors for the presence of port water were triggered. The system identified them as starboard sensors and continued to open the port side kingstones. Three minutes later, a noticeable roll appeared. The duty officer gave the order to sort it out. Two minutes later, the bilge sailor reported flooding. The roll was three degrees and continued to increase. According to the instructions, manual filling of the starboard premises was duplicated. That is, on the control computer, they clicked on the corresponding icon. According to the program laid down, the computer recognized the command as permission to supply water to the port side. Kingston opened to the maximum. Ten minutes later, the roll was eight degrees. The captain arrived on the bridge. He ordered the stop machine, reasonably reasoning that if water enters, then under pressure it happens much more intensively. Twelve minutes from the start, the roll option worked. And the explosive charges of emergency alignment were activated, again from the port side. Water intake increased three times and the roll began to increase rapidly. Three minutes later, the ship lay aboard. Four minutes later, went to the bottom. Everyone who managed to jump overboard was drawn into the formed funnel.

            And this is a passage ...

            That is, you seriously believe that a bookmark somewhere in the hull is able to fit into the control system of a warship. That is, you seriously believe that the opening of kingstones is automated and is done by pressing a computer key. And you seriously believe that by working in the BIUS you can bring the ship to 100 kilotons to the “point of no return” before its crew can intervene? :))))

          If you want, you can do everything ... I believe that an aircraft carrier is a very large wunderwafer for the Papuans ... You don’t need to drown it ... just one rocket to the deck ... It’s sailed away ...

            There are five thousand people to the people. And they built it even more. The options for sabotage are one million per million. From a honey trap for a Negro-helmsman to a plastid pot or onyx beacon in an inconspicuous place.

                  So, what is next? Do you hope with these 100 grams to cause the detonation of something substantial? Seriously?:))))
                  In general, I had no illusions about your level, so I explain - to undermine the ammunition cellar of the modern ship 100 with plastite grams, it's like trying to burn a T-90 attacking tank with a match

              Well, our cruiser Peter the Great, although smaller, is also not small - about 26000 tons of displacement and under 800 crew members. I think a strict selection is coming.

            Well, this rocket still has to fly, and if it does, then they can throw an ax for offense. Well, if this thing was such a useless wunderwafer, then the USSR would not have spent so much effort on building ships of the “killer aircraft carriers”.

            Due to the fact that the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy is scheduled to be launched in the fourth quarter of 2019, and in 2022 he should become part of the American fleet, the Russian Ministry of Defense ordered an additional 10 Onyxes by the fourth quarter of 2019, and to guarantee 5 more by 2022 ... lol

            On an aircraft carrier, you can take away more bananas from foreign shores. Against a protected shore is useless. The larger the target, the less likely it is to miss.

    The thing is that my American colleagues have equipment, tools and supplies at times no worse than ours. Hence the achievements are so great. And our brother, still on his knee, is forced to sculpt. Hence, a lot of unnecessary and bad work, and this is all the time. As before, a sledgehammer works wonders! ..
