Most expensive in stories The US Navy aircraft carrier Gerald R. Ford (The Gerald R. Ford) again failed, writes "ExpertOnline" with reference to Bloomberg. The previous failure happened in January of this year and it was also associated with problems with the power plant.


The second time in six months. Aircraft carrier Gerald R.Ford again failed


The ship should begin combat duty in the 2022 year, at the moment it is undergoing planned tests. As noted by Bloomberg, the aircraft carrier is forced to return to the port due to the detected "manufacturing defect", as well as "inappropriate actions of the team." Repair terms are not established yet.

Earlier edition of The National Interest acknowledged that the aircraft carrier of the new generation "Gerald R. Ford" is not able to participate even in the conduct of conventional operations. Experts point out that United States Secretary of Defense James Mattis was even asked to move the test period for the newest ship to 2024.

According to NI, systems critical to Gerald R. Ford are unreliable. Because of this, the aircraft carrier becomes vulnerable to attack. In addition, due to problems with the electromagnetic subsystem of the vessel, seafarers may not be able to provide maintenance or repairs to the ship.

The cost of the newest American aircraft carrier is 12,9 billion dollars. The ship is also the largest in the world. Its length is 333 meter. It can accommodate 4.400 people and 75 aircraft units, including F-35 fighter jets. In the ceremony of commissioning the ship in May 2017, attended by US President Donald Trump. He called the aircraft carrier "100 000-ton message to the world."

    In the ceremony of commissioning the ship in May 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump took part. He called the aircraft carrier "a 100-ton message to the world."

    And .... offset ... 100 000 tons floating ...

      Apparently this aircraft carrier is planned for the 2nd fleet of the FSA, which will operate in the northern latitudes, against us.

    Well, normal. In peacetime, for the United States, all the shortcomings are revealed so that if anything is in all arms. Although the news is purely for Mikhanov.

      Mikhanov knows that normal countries DO NOT adopt raw equipment, they have been testing for several years.
      But this does not apply to Pi.ndos. They first saw the military budget, then officially adopt it with fanfare, and then rake the jambs completely. But the jambs and adopted equipment and machinery, and just the equipment being tested, are two big differences.
      Well it is, for general development.

    ... The shift failed service am :
    Ford's class was designed to reduce picking requirements, but is “sensitive to rotation of the workforce,” simply because the next-generation technologies that it covers are “not well understood,” the report says.
    The Department of Defense's budget for fiscal year 2019 includes a hefty chunk of cash for Ford's fourth aircraft carrier, but the Navy may have to wait a little longer to see that its dreams have actually been realized.

        ... as it turned out, the Pentagon’s latest technical assessment of the next generation of supercarriers shows that the warship is currently unable to perform basic functions during routine operations; The Pentagon called on Secretary of Defense James Mattis to defer critical impact testing of new carriers until a second Ford aircraft carrier, USS John F. Kennedy, arrives in 2024 and the same stress passes - testing to which lawmakers let the fleet get off the hook in June 2017 am hi.

    Well, dead and dead, let the American taxpayers have a headache about this. To say that this is a bad aircraft carrier is unlikely. It may well be that very good. But how can you imagine how many of their “dead presidents" will fly into the pipe if even one 3M80 Moskit anti-ship missile gets into it ... They don’t drown, but they will be repaired for a LONG time ....

    The technique is new, breakdowns are inevitable.
    By the start of the war, they’ll definitely debug it.

    It would be possible to rejoice in minor malfunctions if the war had already begun, but no one would give us such a gift.

      Tu-160 floating aircraft carrier (any) will not drown. He is not armed with anti-ship missiles. He cannot launch a missile strike at a moving target.

    And who was kidding yesterday about breakdowns that Gren can’t reverse, and on Ford all troubles with idle toilets are limited?

    The more complicated the military equipment, the more unreliable it is, if in peacetime (without stress) it does not swim and fly, then what will happen in combat conditions.

      Well, in our fleet, the initial bet was on missile ships and not on aircraft carriers. The Americans, in addition to aircraft carriers, have nothing to fight with the enemy at sea, and the loss of one aircraft carrier immediately reduces the potential of the fleet by ten percent.

        What ??? Is there nothing for the Americans to fight at sea? Where did this nonsense come from? they only have 66 Arly Burke, only this type of ship has more than a dozen in total. fellow

    Well, "Poseidons" appeared in the United States, and not one dozen. A "Dagger", can someone explain to me a bumpkin how an aircraft, going to a hypersonic, surrounded by plasma, is itself looking for an aircraft carrier? Now, if he enters the port, moor, then it’s possible to calculate the exact coordinates and crash! lol hi
