Aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle undergoes maintenance after a long voyage

French Navy aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle put on maintenance after a long voyage. The French carrier strike group had earlier returned to the port of Toulon, participating in joint maneuvers with naval forces of other countries in the format of the Clemenceau-2019 mission.


Aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle undergoes maintenance after a long voyage


Initially, the long-distance campaign of Charles de Gaulle was associated with a scandal. It arose due to the fact that the French authorities announced the dispatch of an aircraft carrier to the shores of China. In Beijing, such a move was regarded as unfriendly. At one stage of the Clemenceau-2019 mission, a French aircraft carrier called at the port of Hong Kong. Some Chinese experts said it looked like France’s attempt to demonstrate support for protesters in this city. But in the end the passions subsided, and Charles de Gaulle departed back to France.

The group of ships, in addition to the Charles de Gaulle itself, included the frigate PLO Provence, the frigate air defense Forbin, and the supply ship Marne. The group was also accompanied by submarines. The group also included a Danish-built frigate Nils Juel belonging to the Ivar Huitfeldt type (not to be confused with the Danish Navy corvette Nils Juel written off in 2009). Until recently, it was reported that this frigate is being tested.

It is noted that the means aviation aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle made about 2700 take-offs and landings during a long hike.



In total, the French aircraft carrier traveled about 36 thousand nautical miles, calling at the ports of Egypt, Malaysia, Cyprus, China (Hong Kong) and other countries.

      Also noticed this. 2700 take-offs and landings - this is solid. Deck pilots and crew gained a lot of experience.

        There are several big issues with this:
        - This is an initially passive strategy. Not a single passive strategy has brought victory for 300 years already.
        - one cannot be sure of this. That is, this is the problem and the RISK of any asymmetric weapon. If it does not work, then it will be too late to change something. A thorough check can only be in a big conflict - that is, if it worked, an excellent solution, if not, then the failure is complete.

        Well, the last with the killers of aircraft carriers is not very. They will not stand at Kronstadt and in the Sevastopol bay. They will maneuver in the ocean / far sea zone. Where it will be difficult to target designation. It will be difficult to enter the launch line. Especially with submarines it doesn’t work out very well now = 636 in the far / ocean will not be very applicable, Ash-trees are being built slowly, or rather very much more thoroughly. 949A - you have to break through the far frontier from the Virginia heap, and taking into account the strong ICAPL deficit (in the north it’s barely enough to ensure the deployment of a naval strategic nuclear forces, in Kamchatka only 1 ICAPL Kuzbass for all occasions) = a breakthrough will be without cover and will be destructive.

      Of course we don’t need it, we are a land power, we don’t have overseas possessions and aircraft carriers for Russia are just a burden, it’s better to sell Kuzya as long as there are buyers, certainly not only construction, but the maintenance of an aircraft carrier in Russia is nonsense, it’s better to sell it and create a dozen instead Premier League, or for example 23 tank battalion! 2000 tanks, that is, a doubling of tank troops so necessary for defense! and how many of these billions can be made by mbr, s400, iskander, aircraft, instead of an unnecessary one unfit vessel destroyed by one missile or sea mine .....

      They have almost all distant ones :). These values ​​are standard for ShdG - every year on average (even if you include years of repair there), it takes about that much (since 2001 it has traveled> 700k mmil) and ~ 2500 flights are made from it

    French authorities announced the dispatch of an aircraft carrier to the shores of China
    Pleased the Americans, heated relations with China. Which of the achievements deserves more attention is decided by the French. And the aircraft carrier, at least occasionally, but must make campaigns, otherwise it will rust at the pier.

      He has been in working condition since 2001 - the values ​​indicated in the article are usual for him. Half of the service life was left for him - it was just the repair / modernization of the middle of the term.

        This cannot be called a service. Small trips in between repairs. It was officially accepted into the fleet in 1997, and not in 2001. How long will it last? Let’s see, but I don’t think for a long time.

          Your persistence in upholding stupidity unfortunately does not surprise, but can at least read something on the topic?
          Once again: every year for a while Service (this is precisely since 2001) passes on average over (18 years passed> 700k nautical miles) 38k nm (that is, in fact, this year it almost reached the average). This includes all the years including repairs, no matter how you count them. He spends on average> 150 days at sea a year.
          Similarly, on raid ~ 2500 take-offs / landings annually.
          These figures correspond to similar ones (and if we count departures per tonne of VI, the SdG is even higher) for the US Navy. For comparison, the TAVKR AK had the longest trip not so long ago - while it went to Syria, it spent about 120 days at sea (that is, it did not reach the average amount of SdH). The number of flights from Kuznetsov is not known, but as I understand it, this is less than 2000 for the entire time of service. Actually, although ShdG is not the most built-up ship of the French Navy, the IMF of the Russian Federation does not even have a single unit that was at least close in terms of fusion to the performance of ShdG.

              If you are in the past a sailor of the Navy, can you say something about the deposition in the Russian Navy? Did I somehow incorrectly express myself about it and made a mistake?
              You definitely did not serve in the French Navy, so you can’t add anything personally on this score, while you are not interested in publicly available information on the topic, but it is enough for verification.
              So why ask a question if you really are not interested in the answer?

                Glory to God did not serve in the French Navy. Tell me how many times de Gaulle crawled to Toulon on one TZA, that is, not combat-ready, but in your opinion it is like a military campaign. Just fortunately for the French, TZA they broke in turn, because they did not hang out in the middle of the ocean without a move.
