The only French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle R91 is afloat again


Flagship of the French Navy fleet It was put on repair in February last year. After completion of the modernization and reloading of nuclear fuel, the ship will need a few more months of repair work, which will be afloat. At the same time, in the fall of this year, Charles de Gaulle should go for testing, and next year will return to the arsenal of the fleet.

The aircraft carrier was launched in the 1994 year, and seven years later entered service with the French Navy. For more than fifteen years of combat service, his wing has repeatedly participated in international conflicts. The French Ministry of Defense believes that after repair and modernization, an aircraft carrier can be actively used for another twenty years.

Charles de Gaulle is the only aircraft carrier in the French Navy. Originally planned to build two of the same type of ships, but the construction of the second aircraft carrier was canceled due to the high cost of the lead ship. The length of Charles de Gaulle is 261 m, the displacement is 42 000 t. The Charles de Gaulle air wing has up to 40 aircraft (fighters, radio reconnaissance planes, helicopters), and the ship can carry a maximum of 100 aircraft. The crew of the aircraft carrier (including the wing) has about 2000 people, and another 800 paratroopers with armored vehicles can be placed on the inner decks.

    For some reason, the time spent in the dock for repair for the entire service life is not indicated, the number of calls for repairs significantly exceeds the number of participation in military campaigns

        A slight hint of Kuzyu? So besides problems, there is still such a focus - heavy dirty fractions of oil are used in the transition - fuel oil is the cheapest, but in combat use it is possible, for example, to switch to diesel fuel, and the smoke will disappear somewhere, completely

            But does "Peter the Great" smoke and press on pity? Do nuclear submarines smoke too? Where do you get out of, confuse the warm with the soft, let's compare it with a sailing yacht, or with windsurfing, there is higher speed, and there is no smoke, and generally environmentally friendly, there is neither fuel oil nor radioactive emissions

      There was an article on American ABs - so, depending on the length of service, from 1/4 to 1/3 of the total service life they spend in repair. And this is considered normal.
      Actually, that is why the United States has so many ABs - so that at least half of them are ready for war. smile

      If you specify all the time in repairs and what is left for military service - it will turn out very ugly. And if you also call the amount spent on repairs, it is better to hang yourself right away.

          If we take the typical composition of the air cover in the 80s (peak number of decked wings), then even less:
          2 iae - 12 “tomcat” or “hornet” each

There, the Libyans in the 80s tried to secretly approach the AUG, hiding among the fishing ships or pretending to be neutral and turn off all the radars. AUG REBs discovered and classified Libyan RTOs after the very first inclusion of an emergency radar station for fishermen / neutrals - after which Libyan ships were hit by “intruders”.

    Last weekend, Xinhua News Agency reported that a second Chinese aircraft carrier left the Dalian Shipyard and went to sea to conduct sea trials. It should be commissioned by the Navy of the National Liberation Army of China in 2020.

    The pace of construction of the aircraft carrier, which, according to various sources, is either called “Shandong”, or so far has only the number of the project under construction, 001A, is impressive. Preparatory work began in 2013. Two years later, the formation of the hull began in the dry dock of the shipyard. And in April last year, the ship was launched. And so he already went to the test.

    Our problems are that in recent times humiliating situations for us near Syria have happened too often, and the forces of the Russian fleet are practically not growing.

    Only three frigates have been commissioned in this century: Admiral Grigorovich, Admiral Essen, and Admiral Makarov. And it's all. Everything else, and even then in a small amount, dates back to the last century. In connection with the current sad situation, the Russian Navy is considering the acquisition of eight frigates from China.
