The destroyer John McCain returned to sea 2 years after a collision with a merchant ship

44
USS US destroyer John S. McCain (DDG-56) returned to sea after a repair that was caused by a clash in 2017 off the coast of Singapore. This was notified by the 7th fleet of the US Navy.




Currently, the ship has left its pier, located in the Japanese city of Yokosuka, and is heading into the "open" waters. Work has been ongoing at John McCain since mid-December 2017 after the accident on August 21, 2017. Now the first stage of sea trials is underway, as a result of which the ship will return to active service as part of the main surface forces of the 7th fleet USA - 15th destroyer squadron deployed in Japan.

During marine tests, the ship and its crew will conduct a series of demonstration tests to assess whether the ship's on-board systems comply with the technical specifications of the Navy.

- The 7th fleet of the US Navy said in a statement.

Tests are subject to navigation systems, damage control, mechanical and electrical equipment, military equipment, communication devices and a power plant. At the same time, as indicated, according to the results of the repair, the ship received improved capabilities and greater impact power.


Recall that in the summer of 2017, the destroyer collided with a merchant ship in the Strait of Malacca. Then 10 sailors of the US Navy warship were declared missing. After some time, the commander of the Seventh Fleet of the United States Navy Scott Swift resigned.

    So it’s not clear that the hole from the next blow will be more or less? belay

        More precisely, in honor of just two McCains - grandfather and father.
        My grandfather was still in WWI - he accompanied convoys across the Atlantic. In WWII, he commanded the base aviation in the south of TO during the time of Guadalcanal, then took command of the aircraft carrier group of TF58, and in October 1944 became the commander of the entire "American aircraft carrier roller" - TF38. Died four days after Japan's surrender of a heart attack.
        My father fought the whole WWII on a submarine, during the Vietnam War he commanded the Pacific Command and was a hawk from hawks, constantly demanding the buildup of US naval power and the confrontation of the USSR at all key points.

        Petersburg in poverty, the missile who shot down McCain’s plane
        Retired Lieutenant Colonel Yuri Trushechkin, who had once shot down the future US Senator John McCain in the skies over Vietnam, died in St. Petersburg yesterday, Fontanka.ru reports. For a long time, Trushechkin suffered from cancer. In recent years, he lived in a dilapidated house in Krasnoye Selo near St. Petersburg to retire in the amount of 10 thousand rubles.

        2009-01-17 12:42

        After leaving the reserve, Trushechkin first lived in Riga, and then moved to Russia, where he received no help from the state. He poked around in rented apartments and, according to his wife, lived almost in the basements.

        In the end, in Russia Trushechkin was given a room in a communal apartment. But not as a reserve officer, but as an internally displaced person.

        “I received nothing for my service in the armed forces,” Trushechkin himself says on the surviving video.

        The last years of his life, the offender McCain huddled in a dilapidated hut in the Leningrad Region and lived in poverty, watching on television the successes of the American pilot, whom he had once shot down.


        McCain died, surrounded by honor and respect, including in Vietnam, where a monument was erected to him during his lifetime.
        By the way, their disease was similar.

        Such is the gratitude for the service. Somehow things are very at odds with beautiful words

          Or maybe it's easier - Senator McCain was the representative dynasties and the elite. Grandfather is a four-star admiral, the son of a planter. Father is a four-star admiral, and after retirement, Reagan's naval adviser.

          If McCain was an ordinary "guy of the people" - his fate could be completely different.

    It seems nonsense that two ships cannot disperse in the open sea, but all the insidiousness is that there are no landmarks in the sea and it is impossible to understand by eye how the oncoming ship is going to bypass from the right, or to understand from the left without reference to the landmark impossible, happened fishing you’ll go to sea on the 10 km, you see the oncoming boat it seems that it’s next to the right, and it bypasses you from the other side and far to the side.

    The name "John McCainen" has nothing to do with the senator, these are the admirals of the Second World War in the Pacific. Doesn't anyone fear that there are more than 60 such destroyers in service with the US Navy, + to some extent in varying degrees of readiness? Repair for shipyards is not difficult: certain deadlines or others are indicated, modernization, etc. - what's the difference! 80 launchers for one hit - are you kidding me? Well, I got a hole and that - look at the accident rate of our ships (if anything, pl - this is also a ship).

    During the repair process, they could upgrade to level IIA, replacing the gun mount and increasing the number of cells. It is not yet known what the process of modernization was
