US left without active aircraft carriers on the east coast

49
USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75) has encountered serious problems with a malfunctioning power distribution system on board the ship. This casts doubt on the expected deployment of an aircraft carrier this fall.




As explained in the Navy, a breakdown requires an analysis of the problem and subsequent repair work. As a result, the American fleet was left without active AUGs on the east coast of the United States. Now only USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) operates here. However, this AUG is recovering after a difficult 18-month maintenance period for its main pennant. According to USNI News, it is likely that it will not be able to turn around by the planned date, that is, at least by the beginning of the 2020 year.

Truman's problems underscore fragility fleet aircraft carriers east coast. With six aircraft carriers based in Norfolk, only Truman and Eisenhower could be deployed [...] It does not seem that the situation will improve in 2020 either.

- notes the publication.

USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) began preparing for a major overhaul, due to begin in late 2021. Now it is used only for developing piloting skills. USS George Washington (CVN-73) underwent a major overhaul of approximately half (completed as planned at the end of 2021). The latest USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78) still solves nuclear power plant problems and weapons elevators. USS George HW Bush (CVN-77) “stuck” on maintenance that began at the end of February: instead of 10,5 months, it will take at least 28 “due to the backlog of the shipyard.”

It is unclear what will happen next.

- concludes USNI News.

          And a month ago they threw me cons, because I reported on the possibilities of the United States to put on the battle no more than two AUGs, because the rest undergo scheduled maintenance and repairs.

              if you cut the sturgeon) Not three days, but 18 hours, and after a year's repair it went back into operation.

              The rocket was only the initiator of the fire, a lot of ammunition, both hung under the aircraft and stored, exploded on the deck of the Forrestal.
              Sloppy l / s and non-compliance with safety standards sometimes lead to greater losses than targeted actions of the enemy.

              Now the Americans are relaxed. Nobody really threatens them. During the Cold War, at least half of the aircraft carriers were on combat duty, while the rest underwent repairs and maintenance after the campaign.

                Well, it is possible that I was somewhat mistaken in the details, although this is not so important, but the general meaning is clear. When some here talk about the fact that everything was lost - there are as many as ten mattress mats, and we have almost one, with this example I hint that "zuni" is not a "mosquito" or something newer. I think that if a "mosquito" hit, the situation would be much more sad, even lethal.

The fuel from the fuel lines will be drained and filled with inert gas, and all the ammunition will be lowered into the cellars.

    It remains only to wish that the same happens to the AUG on the west coast. Then maybe the world will breathe a sigh of relief at least for a while and American "democracy" will not knock on the doors of sovereign countries.

    A long-known problem: the US DOES NOT have 11 aircraft carriers !!! The fact is that there are about 3 of them at any given time, the rest are not operational. Which casts doubt on the feasibility of their existence. They eat the budget like a vacuum cleaner, but there’s no sense - they can’t even fight against wild barmalei, because it’s always on maintenance. And what will happen, when the Caliber will fly towards them Caliber with the Vanguards from a comparable enemy? And the Gauges with the Vanguards sucked out of the budget in every way less than the 14billion, not counting the service, which in principle could not be put into service by the fellow Ford?

            Now manufacturing-assembly-welding are different. Modules. The damaged module will simply be cut out of the ship and a new one will be inserted, designed in 3-D and assembled by robots. With all connectors, cables, pipes. Therefore, aircraft carriers are laid by two (and the Chinese are making their destroyers as many as four). One shipyard assembles "bows", one "middle part", one "stern". At the fourth shipyard, everyone is put together. Like Lego.
            ----
            And an engineer in the United States (as in Israel) is a prestigious high-paying profession.

                Because the aircraft carrier is not the same as before. Everything in it is on electricity. All systems are new, used the first time.
                Musk employs only 7000 people in the development and production of rockets. And they are world leaders in launching communications satellites.
                What I described works. But not perfect. Robots, as it turned out, do not work well with soft materials, such as car upholstery. And you have to add a person. But, for example, turners and milling machines for the automotive industry are definitely not needed. Welders in the general assembly of ships are not yet replaced by robots.

                    The American press pays attention to problems, and this is good. Just look at the statistics of how many nuclear submarines, destroyers, UDCs of other large ships are produced by American shipyards per year. Without 3-D design and printing, modular assembly, robotization, this would be impossible. Given that the number of employees in these shipyards has decreased significantly.
                    You live in the illusion that everything is about to collapse in the States. Difficulties arise every decade new, but they are very flexibly overcome.

    Slaughter-reinforced concrete logic.

    As a result, the American fleet was left without active AUGs on the east coast of the United States. Now only USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) operates here. However, this AUG is recovering after a difficult 18-month maintenance period for its main pennant. According to USNI News, it is likely that it will not be able to turn around by the planned date, that is, at least by the beginning of 2020.

    Truman's problems underscore the fragility of the fleet of aircraft carriers on the east coast. With six aircraft carriers based in Norfolk, only Truman and Eisenhower could be deployed [...] It does not seem that the situation will improve in 2020

    - notes the publication.

    USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) began to prepare for a major overhaul, which should begin at the end of 2021. Now it is used only for developing piloting skills. USS George Washington (CVN-73) underwent a major overhaul of approximately half (completed as planned at the end of 2021). The latest USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78) still solves nuclear power plant problems and gun elevators. USS George HW Bush (CVN-77) "stuck" on maintenance that began at the end of February: instead of 10,5 months, it will take at least 28 "due to the backlog of the shipyard

    That is, the fact that at least two aircraft carriers - "Eisenhower" and "Stennis" are still in service, in the opinion of the author of the note, means that the fleet was left without operating aircraft carriers? Okay, it's clear that Washington is under renovation. It is clear that there are problems with "Ford" and "Bush" is stuck on MOT.
    But the phrase "Stennis" is preparing for a major overhaul, which will begin in late 2021, just killed. After 2 years, the aircraft carrier is planned to be repaired, and a priori it has already been listed as inactive. It is a pity that such articles are published.

    Not at any time three, but in principle you are right when you say that the Americans do not have 11 aircraft carriers in service. This, in principle, applies to large ships in general. Take our "Eagles". It seems that there are three left, but there is only one in the ranks - "Peter the Great". The rest are undergoing long-term renovation. The modernized EMNIP Ushakov will go into operation, and the Peter will be repaired. And when they say that we need 6 or 8 aircraft carriers, they always give an explanation. For example, there are three aircraft carriers on the Northern Fleet. One at base, one sailing, one under repair. This is not unusual. So it is with the Americans. Some ships are under repair - this is natural

    It’s NOT just forced, but the overhaul period is being reviewed, which makes it possible to have, if not all 11-12 aircraft carriers, then 8 pieces — at least

    Nonsense. In wartime, the repair period will only increase

    In the active phase, there will simply be nothing to repair very soon!

    And I was told in a previous article that I was a dunce because the American aircraft carrier is not drowned at all

    And a month ago they threw me cons, because I reported on the possibilities of the United States to put on the battle no more than two AUGs, because the rest undergo scheduled maintenance and repairs.

    hi
    These are the machinations of the American imperialists and their accomplices.
    Most think that everything is so simple, AUG released, and the whole world trembles. And then they’re not in the house, the more complicated the technique, the less fault tolerance. This is an axiom.
