Sohu: One title left from UK title “mistress of the seas”


In China, they comment on the statement of the main military department of Great Britain about the need to optimize the costs of the needs of the Royal Navy. The British defense department intends to reduce the number of surface warships by 2027. It is also noted that it will be necessary to adjust the national shipbuilding strategy in terms of building Type 31 frigates. The first of these frigates was originally planned to be put into service with the British Navy in 2027, but now they are planning to postpone the deadlines for a number of reasons, including financial ones.


Problems are allegedly arising with the order by the United Kingdom Navy of the latest Type26 frigates.

The military section of the Chinese publication Sohu decided that these plans of London are not worthy of a great naval power. In the Sohu material, they openly scoff at the fact that Britain decides to optimize its navy.

From the article:

Once upon a time, Great Britain called itself the mistress of the seas and an empire over which the sun never sets. What now? From the title "mistress of the seas" there is only one name left, and with it, apparently, problems. All this looks like humiliation for Britain. She has always advocated expanding her fleetbut not now.

These ridicule in China is also related to the fact that recently in London they announced their readiness to send their latest aircraft carrier to the shores of China. The British Ministry of Defense attributed this to the need to "prevent the PRC from expanding in the South China Sea."

It is noteworthy that the plans of the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom to "optimize" the Navy are criticized in Britain itself. And Sohu recalls this, pointing to statements by representatives of the retired admiral corps:

With this approach, the UK will move into the second tier of countries with a navy.

    Sohu: One title left from UK title “mistress of the seas”
    That is the rare case when I agree with Sohu.

      when i agree with sohu

      Are they going to fight? Or is she threatened from the sea? Are there colonies that need to be protected?
      The brazen have a very decent, balanced fleet. Maybe the Russian Navy has an aircraft carrier of the Elizabeth level? Or a destroyer, level type 45, or a frigate worthy of type 26?
      MAPL Astyut level? Or the Mace reached TTX Trident II.
      They easily give the countries of the 3rd world, the former flagships of their fleets (Ocean). Really look at things, the brazen fleet is stronger than the Russian Navy. Despite the tonnage. And this is not considering the closest ally ...

        alas, few people understand this. Yes, the British fleet at one time was in a deep peak, but those days are gone.

        And it’s all the more strange to hear derogatory statements from the Chinese, who are completely zero at sea compared to the British.

          Pike used pot liner with destroyers

          Calmly, pr 971 has been old for a long time, they are 30-35 years old, the 3M-14 hasn’t hit anyone yet, HAK and torpedoes, I don’t even say pr 22350, the newest that is, does not reach Dering in air defense, Type 26 for versatility, and built 11 years. The liner did not come from a good life, but because of problems with the BARK and Bulava. It does not reach Taydent, and liquid. Excuse me, what kind of destroyers in the Russian Navy? Can they swim in a separate flock so that no one sees?

            By what characteristics does the liner fall short of the trident?

            And who didn’t get into 3m 14?

            Until type 26, which does not have a normal PCR, and you are talking about universality ??

          but they are NOT FIRST

          They are not the first for a long time, below is a comment from Andrey for this.
          Elizabeth is forming an air group, there is take-off and landing, and we don’t even have a helicopter carrier.
          For Daring, he didn’t say that he was a strike destroyer, but theoretically, you can stick both Harpoon and Scalpel in the VPU. And in terms of dimensions, the SAMPT-P container is quite suitable for an ax.
          Etc. 26 and pr 31 will be embodied in metal, but for 1143 and 1144 I am not sure. Neither Kuznetsov nor Nakhimov will soon be.
          PS: For thousands of tanks in more detail? You mean Syria and LDNR? So this is ... how to say, a necessity.
          Not a single surface ship of the first rank has been built for 30 +++ years. And the Saxons have a small but very scratchy fleet. It is one of the five in the world, unlike the Russian one.

            It is just that pr 26 will turn into metal; one must doubt, since the British are planning another attack on cutting fleet costs. But we have at least 4 frigates including Gorshkov SF will be replenished for sure (the rest four will go to the Pacific Fleet)
            What is there to doubt in 1144 - I don’t understand at all, they are modernizing Nakhimov, there is money for it, the only problem is the timing. Kuznetsov, too, will not disappear.

          3-4 pikes are really combat ready, not all in the Northern Fleet. On the SF from combat-ready, only Gorshkov and aviation. The rest is 30+ year old trash. Well, how do you equal him? Right now, all the holes will be plugged by Gorshkov and Kasatonov .. or do you really believe in our watchdogs and corvettes?

            Two are actually combat-ready on the Northern Fleet - Panther and Cheetah, but Severodvinsk is attached to them, and in the very near future, Kazan. The British in the ranks of 3 Astyut but not the fact that all three are combat ready.
            In addition, the British have three “Trafalgar”, but there was evidence that they were all decommissioned due to problems with the reactors. We have 4 more Pike-Bs under repair (that repair from which they come out).
            But, besides this, the Federation Council has 2 Antei in the ranks, and this is very serious. And I would not discount 4 Halibut, also in service.
            That is, roughly, the British have 3 on the move 3 under repair, we have 3 + 2 on the move 1 in the completion + 4 under repair + 4 diesel engines. And I still don’t remember the older 945 (one in the ranks), 9456A (two in the ranks) and ordinary Pikes (two in the ranks) As for me, there is a clear advantage over the Northern Fleet.

              Those. is there any chance that the P-700, which in 30 years, will take off? Remember the experience of Syria? This is me for Antei. There are big doubts about the successful launch of at least half. We have already passed this, for example, 1164 with their Basalts and Volcanoes.
              945 Barracudas ?? Do you know good Soviet torpedoes? Only without the "Fizikoff", and that advertised in. It is unlikely that they are where they are.
              For Peter the Great, and his Fort and Fort-M, well, as if by TTX, he could not intercept either the IV ax or the harpoon, he simply would not see. Yes, and the attack from 3 sides will not reflect, also due to the performance characteristics. And the old man was going to repair, not just like that.
              repair and modernization "Ustinov"

              And what about Ustinov? (There was no modernization, there was nothing to modernize, it is already as perfect as a Lada from 1982 to 2014) What can he do? If only GDP from his deck threatens with a finger! Neither P-1000 nor Fort are relevant. Both production of the 80s, the extreme Volcano - 83 years, will also take off? Well, for the TTX of the Fort I said, there are restrictions on the EPR of the target and channel, not to mention ... more +++ minuses.
              1155, all four pieces are either being repaired or being prepared. And so from year to year, since it is with them that they plug holes. And for Pauline ... it was at 80 he was "powerful", and now
              And 885, how much infa is available, has not been accepted by the fleet. Not a single military campaign. And the lack of, let's say there are no torpedoes, as on corvettes and frigates. The promised 3 years are waiting.
              PS: Maybe I don’t know, probably soon, but I see the prospect like this. It is better to have 2-3 combat-ready modern units than to “feed” the “most powerful” fleet for admirals. But each has its own “boat”, well, there to raise a pennant, a cabin, a sailor, etc. Well, like a yacht, only a service one.

                Their Americans are well aware. I remember when, back in the last century, the American admiral was asked how he was going to protect aircraft carriers from Soviet torpedoes guided by the wake, the answer was: "I will put each aircraft carrier on the Ticonderoga in the wake."
                As for underwater battles in the North, I would not underestimate even the USET-80. Yes, she has a short range, but the real detection distance in the northern seas is unlikely to be more than 10 km.
                In addition, do you seriously think that the KVMF is littered with modern torpedoes? :))) They did not hesitate to send frigates with 4 missiles to combat services.

                Here we take the radar. Daring, which you are so enthusiastic about, has 1 (ONE) radar, which a priori cannot hold 360 degrees (it rotates). Dering’s radar is very high quality, as it can work in both the decimeter and centimeter ranges (two in one), that is, it sees well both in the distance and near above water.
                Peter the Great has an EMNIP (I write from memory) two survey decimeter radars (the rest are sanimeter and millimeter radars), two low-flying target detection radars, a tackle radar, two Fort and Fort-M fire control radars, one for the Dagger, and There are 6 daggers, each of which also has its own SLA radar.

Neither 1144 nor 1164 will be able to repel such an attack. And the lamps will not modernize. At least that's how Sergey grilled.

And I wouldn’t bring down a single one. This is just my opinion. You do not see the target, there is no chance to bring down.

                    Thinking like that is quite incompetent. Excuse me. Our ships have long been imprisoned for the interception of Tomahawks and Harpunov. This is not such a difficult target for air defense systems because of their subsonic speed, vulnerability to radar interference (including means of setting artificial interference).

            Nothing looms. The number of false targets in Mace is unknown. The range with the maximum load is the same. The number of missiles on a submarine is a controversial thing; the military needs to know a lot better or less. For example, I don’t know. The trident is many years old, the Mace is new, so somehow we won’t be talking about successful launches in a row. And yes, not 150 but 134. And the last launch 10 years ago, it would be interesting to see now.
            I think that the military actually knows better.
            I do not deny that the Trident will be better, but the Clubs are surely enough for Russia. Let's not forget that missiles on submarines in the United States are the basis of nuclear forces, and in Russia is secondary. Russia has no missiles similar to Trident2, the Americans have no analogues of the Voivode.

        Not. Firstly, in reality, England abandoned the two-state standard before the WWII and Washington only fixed this as a treaty. And secondly, the British Navy and after Washington for a long time remained the best in the world, and when it ceased to be one, it still made England a first-class sea power. In reality, England lost the title of mistress of the seas in the second half of WWII, when the US Navy reached the multi-powerful standard - that is, their Navy became stronger than all the Navy of other countries of the world combined

            Well, actually, it must be considered in general from the very roots.
            Well, let's say I am of the opinion that Hitler, for example, lost the 2nd World War in 1925.
            Exactly at that moment when he wrote Mine camph, and there he proclaimed the true teisises about the Aryans, exactly at that moment he lost. Having bet on 92 million of the Aryan population, this is a little not enough for a world war.

                During the conduct of active hostilities, especially after they became tense, the armed forces of Argentina found themselves in a situation of acute shortage of modern models of military equipment. Troops lacked everything from night vision devices to anti-ship and anti-aircraft missiles. In the context of this problem, the weaknesses of the national military-industrial complex and its critical dependence on sources of import of weapons were fully revealed.

                Amid the economic embargo by its main suppliers, Argentina faced the difficult task of replenishing military equipment and ammunition lost in battle. Weak potential and insufficient production capacities of domestic industry did not fully compensate for the consequences of international sanctions.

                        And where did you see “fortune telling”? An extrapolation of events in the armed forces of England led by M. Thatcher.

        under Thatcher, they still somehow twitched with the Falklands and were very proud of their “victory”.

        They captured foreign territory, but no one screams "Vernitemalviny". And dermocracy is not violated.

              Well, let’s put it in the 19th century and Russia (like all other countries) took over everything that lay bad - at the end of the 20th century it’s stupid to suffer according to what was lost 1,5 centuries ago. And the rights of the Argentines to the Falklands-Malvins are very, very snotty - it was the British who discovered the islands, and it was the British and the French (and not the Argentines) who were the first to establish settlements on the islands, but because of the harsh climate, the English (and any other) presence died out, but Britain never refused the rights to the archipelago. In fact, until the restoration of the British presence, the islands were controlled by American corsairs, English and American whalers and Argentine exiled criminals who did not obey the Argentine authorities - the first and only Argentine governors killed their own Argentine convicts quickly, so from the point of view of international law, the Argentines claim gently speaking little substantiated.

              You are mistaken. The Falkland Islands were discovered either by the British or the Spaniards, and the British claimed their rights to these islands back in 1765. Actually, the French (who had a small settlement in the Falklands by that time) could have argued these rights, but certainly not the Argentines, who they quietly seized their hands, taking advantage of the fact that the British at some point evacuated the population.

                Wrong.

                Maybe I'm wrong, but still there is no exact definition. The story goes that the islands were discovered at the end of the XNUMXth century by D. Davis, the English navigator, under whose command the expedition of the English corsair Cavendish took place. According to other sources, the Spaniards were the first to discover the archipelago. Since that time, almost a war has been waged for the Malvinas Islands. They repeatedly passed either to Britain or to Spain, so there are no indigenous people here.
                I worked in this area and repeatedly went to the islands, everyone speaks English, and people from all over the world, not a very good climate, that people from the metropolis would be rich there.

                  And how does one contradict the other? Only the British organized the production of the necessary weapons, albeit with strain. But Argentina had no where and nothing, and there was no one to establish production. And the fact that the Germans had to start supplying them in connection with the conflict NATO’s flax was discontinued. So what kind of weapon was running out and there wasn’t any new place to wait.
                  Well, if the British sold the fleet, reduced the military, then what are these not leftovers?

As you say, “there were many aspects there.” The British had to “carry” far away but there was something to carry and on what. And Argentina had nothing to carry and it was nothing impossible to carry in mind full sea blockade.
                      Or do you think that the landing can last long on the island without supplies and support from the air and sea?

                        What kind of rackets? :)))) The British, with the exception of 2 frigates with Sivulfs (SAM), ships were unable to repel attacks of subsonic attack aircraft (Skyhawk) with free-falling bombs. The air defense systems either did not have time to react or could not work at low altitudes (Sea Dart) or were completely useless because they could not get into anyone (Sea Kat) and there was no quick-fire artillery (except for single 114 mm)

                        First, let's see what the Argentines had in the air. Formally, the Argentine Air Force had at the beginning of the conflict 240 aircraft, but there were a lot of problems with them. Firstly, some of them, in principle, were not suitable for battle with British ships, and of those that were suitable, due to a lack of spare parts and, apparently, certain elements of slovenliness, many were not ready. For the most modern aircraft, the statistics are approximately as follows:
                        Super Etandar - total 5, combat readiness 4
                        Mirage III - total 19 (or 21) combat readiness 12
                        Dagger - total 39, combat readiness 25
                        Skyhawk - total 68-70, combat readiness 39
                        That is, yes, on the one hand, it seems that embargoes, sanctions and lack of spare parts have done their dirty deed and undermined the combat effectiveness of the Argentine Air Force. But on the other hand, the British at the beginning of the conflict had as many as 20 Sea Harriers - against 80 Argentina's combat-ready aircraft!
                        Further. In all reviews, it is usually mentioned that Argentina ordered 28 Exocet anti-ship missiles, but received only 5. But the Argentines had other Exocetos - their ships carried 20 launchers for the Exocet, but it was impossible to use them from planes. The Argentines did not dare to give a naval battle but they had such opportunities - they were afraid to fight.
                        The most important thing is that these 5 missiles in the mass consciousness turned into the only weapon of Argentina, they say, as they were shot, all the chances to fight the Argas ended :)))) And this is far from the case.
                        The problem of the British was that they had almost littered with ship's air defense. Their Sea Darts could not work for low-flying targets, and against jet aircraft leaving on a low-level flight, they were practically useless. The most common Sea Kat air defense systems were generally worthless - out of 80 missiles fired, it was possible (possibly!) To get one. Only the Sivulfs worked more or less (but they also overslept 40% of all attacks, but nevertheless in those in which they did not oversleep, 10 missiles shot down 4 aircraft), but the British had Sivulfs only on 2 frigates. English did not have MZA. As a result, for the entire time of the conflict, naval air defense systems and British artillery managed to bring down only 7 aircraft.
                        The enthusiastic harriers have shown themselves to be disgusting machines. In total, on May 1-25, Argentines tried 32 times to attack British ships, 104 aircraft took part in these attempts. The British managed to intercept groups of attacking planes 9 times (before they went on the attack), but managed to disrupt only 6 attacks (19% of the total), in other cases, the Argentines, although they suffered losses, still broke through to the English ships. In total, out of 104 attacking aircraft, 85 were able to attack British ships, i.e. The Sea Harriers were able to thwart the attacks of only 18,26% of the total number of Argentine aircraft participating in them. And this despite the advantage in the quality of air-to-air missiles that the British had!
                        That is, in fact, it turned out like this. The main combat weapon of Argentina was jet subsonic aircraft with free-falling bombs. This, of course, does not attract modern weapons by the standards of 1982, but the problem is that the British did not have any reliable means of opposing EVEN SUCH an enemy. And the Falkland conflict had to be pulled out solely on the decisiveness and excellent combat training of British sailors and combat pilots. A detailed analysis shows that the British fought very skillfully and desperately, but they did not have any effective material part, and they pulled this conflict hardly .

                        It’s kind of ambiguous. From the “working” airplanes of Argentina, almost all are lost, although the British did not have anything to fight. The fleet is also locked in the ports. Moreover, like the air bombs in Argentina, too, not because of problems with the fuses. Missiles turn out all the same are over?
                        And what happens? When the British began to land, they had at least something, like one of the materiel was ships with aircraft, albeit inferior but capable of at least fighting something. And Argentina has landing, without supplies and essentially without support. Plus in Argentina itself with support is not very, to say the least. Well, what's the point of floundering? Even though England does not have much equipment, it’s still better than Argentina’s nothing.

                        Who told you this? :))))) By the beginning of the landing (night of May 21), the Argentines lost only 9 relatively modern aircraft (or maybe less, too lazy to look, but definitely not more than 9). 11 more screw (!) Attack aircraft, which had no value, were destroyed by the SAS landing.

                        The Argentine fleet was not barred by anything but its fear of going to sea. British surface ships never in the course of the conflict blocked Argentine ports on the continent, and submarines left there long before the British disembarked. The Argentines were afraid to throw the fleet into battle, although they had superiority in aircraft and quite modern anti-ship missiles on ships.

                        And who is to blame for this? :)))) The Argentines themselves, who, apparently, did not observe storage rules. In any case, the issue could be solved relatively easily by testing the bombs in the warehouses, sometimes aviation is worth training with real ammunition :))) The Argentines did not do this and, accordingly, did not identify problems with fuses in a timely manner.

                        You were mistaken a little more than completely. It was after the landing that the most massive sorties of the Argentine Air Force took place. Of the 247 sorties that took place from May 1 to May 25, 163 were made from May 21 to May 25, that is, the most fierce battles took place within five days after the start of the landing. Later, until June 19, there were about a hundred more sorties.

    Many reasons.
    RCC Exosset was not very.
    I read that the “Sheffield” just burned out, when it hit the warhead it didn’t work, the fire arose from the remote control, the superstructure was aluminum.
    There were several direct hits of air bombs in ships, but there were no explosions.
    The main attack aircraft of the Argentines was Skyhawk, which flew at the limit of range from the continent and did not pull against Khirier in an air battle.
    But the fleet completed its task.

    Matvey, under Thatcher, they still somehow twitched with the Falklands and were very proud of their “victory”. But the victory was some kind of pyrrhic, how many ships they lost there? Well, since then nothing at all.

    Welcome hi
    Why pyrrhic? The islands conquered thousands of kilometers from their shores, under the nose of the Argentines, near their ports, bases, airfields, etc. Losses in people and aviation caused the Latinos more than they themselves lost, in principle, norms, no?

        Yes, in terms of technology (especially air defense), the British screwed up. Substandard air defense systems, the absence of MZA on ships, the absence of AWACS, the Harrier without radar .... The British were lucky in the sense that the Argentinean technique was even worse.

        But after the Falklands, the British (and not only them, but all the countries that followed the conflict, including the USSR) made the proper conclusions.

        Quote: Sea Cat
        the game was hardly worth the candle

        was worth it. Britain would lose face in the face of the international community if it allowed Argentina to prevail, or if it wiped itself and let things go on the brakes. Avoiding reputational losses of this rank is worth the money spent. The British showed that they were still worth something, although they had an operation almost on the verge of a foul

Nuclear submarines fail faster than they change. The cruiser, which is supposed to replace the "Ticonderoga," has not yet begun to draw, and the existing cruisers are massively sucking. So, not everything is so bad. As one of the great said: "Do what you must, and let it be that will be."

    Once upon a time, Great Britain called itself the mistress of the seas and an empire over which the sun never sets. What now? From the title "mistress of the seas" there is only one name left, and with it, apparently, problems.
    the Chinese press so far is wishful thinking. KVMS is still a pretty powerful thing. They contain quite a lot of modern ships (Deringi are considered one of the best destroyers in the world, Wengard submarine missiles and Astyut-class multipurpose submarines are very good), including two aircraft carriers.

    Of course, if Britain continues to reduce the Navy, it will slide to the level of Russia or even lower. Moreover, for the British it will be fatal - they traditionally developed the Navy, the fleet was the main striking force, the army was never a priority.

      At one time, Europeans and Americans built their plants in China, invested a huge amount of money, which gave him a leap in economic development. Only because of this, China now does not correspond to Africa in terms of living standards. The Chinese were not able to build an efficient economy without outside help; you don’t have to run far for an example - Mao and his “big leap” and subsequent famine are hard to forget. And after that they will "roll out the accounts" of Great Britain and the USA ?! Over the past thousand years, these “haulers” have not won a single significant bit of war; their hands are still short enough to “roll out” something there. I must admit, in this confrontation I sympathize with the West, they are better enemies, but the enemies are old and familiar than China, from which it is not clear what to expect, which, gradually expanding its sphere of influence, will reach (or have already reached) us.
