The US Navy refused to extend the life of 27 destroyers "Arleigh Burke"

The US Navy refused to extend the service life from 35 to 45 years of first-generation Arly Burke-class missile destroyers. This was reported by Defense News with reference to the Assistant Secretary of the US Navy for Research, Development and Procurement, James Goerts.


As explained in the command of the US Navy, we are talking about 27 class destroyers "Arly Burke" versions of Flight I and Flight II, put into operation from 1991 to 1999. The service life of these ships under the project is 35 years. Earlier it was proposed to upgrade them in order to extend the service life to 45 years, but this decision was recognized as economically inexpedient.

This is a difficult decision, but it is necessary to strike a balance between cost and defense.

- said in the Senate, James Gurtz.

It is noted that this decision casts doubt on the implementation of Donald Trump's plan to increase the number of warships of the US Navy to 355 units, since fleet from 2026 to 2034, 27 Arly Burke class destroyers will be withdrawn.

Note that at present, Arly Burke class destroyers equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles and Aegis missile defense are considered the main naval ships of the US Navy.

According to the latest data, the US Navy includes 67 destroyers of this class, a contract has been signed for the construction of another 10 ships, and it is also planned to order an additional ten units.

        Which present ? They will be given a loan, since there is no money to buy These destroyers. And even possibly at preferential rates. And modestly silent about the "remote control and management." And we will have at our side a sort of "cow cake" with missiles on board ...

      What does Trump have to do with it? Donald just drowns for an increase in the naval composition of the fleet.
      And the fleet is being reduced by pests-evaders from the general line of the party. smile

    When I hear about a reduction in the naval composition of the U.S. Navy, I have a growing sense of proximity to the end of the story: the whole world is at the feet of the U.S., there are no opponents capable of serious armed resistance and the available naval equipment and weapons (as an instrument of global domination by concept Mahan) seems to be "masters of the world" redundant. Ideological enemies are too weak or insignificant, all elites knelt, bought estates and moved families and money to the metropolis.
    But this is a deceptive sensation. "When they begin to say" peace and security ", then suddenly they will find a perniciousness on them." (1 Thess. 5.3)

        No one bothers to preserve them, and, if necessary, minimize patches and use them as a launcher for tomahawks.

        The impression, of course, is deceptive. But such a decision is made on the basis of some analyzes and conclusions. No one is engaged in analytics as much as the Yankees, they have these reports on thousands of pages. And then they come to such a strange decision. What is this talking about? The fact that our corvettes without air defense is complete nonsense for a serious fight? I agree. That the number of our frigates is so insignificant that it cannot be taken seriously? Well, yes, of course. So these reductions are a bad picture for our fleet.

          What decision did they make? Do not spend money on the modernization of the Burks of the first or second series, but by 2031 put into operation 24 destroyers of the 3rd series? In my opinion, the decision is more than justified, since the electric vehicles of the latest series are very different from the ships built in the 90s. To bring them up to at least IIA level, it will be necessary to re-build the hull bravely, change almost all the electronics - and despite the fact that the ships after that will last only an extra 10, of 15 years. Apparently, the United States decided not to follow the path of Russia (with our gold-diamond Nakhimov), but simply to build new ships.
          Moreover, their decision does not in any way affect the overall combat capability of the Navy - on the contrary, the fleet will receive new ships, probably under new weapons (the latest versions of Tomogavkov and KR LRASM).

            and besides, they firstly can afford it, secondly they will actually be built, and thirdly they will be built in an acceptable time frame.

      You have the wrong idea.

        I was just saying that this impression is misleading. As for the strength of nuclear weapons, the decision to use them will be made by politicians, not the military. And with this, it doesn’t matter with us, sheer collaboration. no A decision on the use of nuclear weapons can only occur if they and their interests are personally at risk of collapse.

    Here it is necessary to react to hypersound, to Poseidons, to the S-500. Yes, and the way out of START3 - okay loot - at least fall asleep with greenery, but with competencies in combat units it is no longer a fact that it will be possible to build up quickly.
    But this is a fiasco in the battle for the oceans, especially against the background of the pace of the commissioning of destroyers by China.

    And it would seem - where does Ukraine come from? No kidding.
    And so, Americans can afford it, they will simply replace Berkov with the top blocks.
    For a second, we have only two Soviet-built destroyers-pensioners: “Admiral Ushakov” and “Bystry” pr 956.
    Instead of joking over Ukraine, look at what we have. We ourselves would have grabbed Burke ourselves if someone had given it.
