    Maya destroyer (DDG-179) project 27DDG

    The destroyer Maya (DDG-179) of the 27DDG project is the lead in the series of ships of the new Atago subclass, called 27DDG, which will be built by order of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces. A new subclass of ships was announced in August 2015. The first two ships of the new class are expected to enter service in 2020 and 2021.
    Ships of this class will specialize in air defense and will complement the anti-submarine destroyers of the 25DD project.
    The 27DDG project is an improved version of the Atago project, within the framework of which two destroyers (Atago and Ashigara) were built between 2004 and 2008. Maya-class ships will differ from their predecessor in an increased hull and displacement, which will allow them to place enhanced weapons.
    The destroyer Maya (DDG-179) was laid down on April 17, 2017 under number 2319 at the shipyard Japan Marine United Corporation in Yokohama. On July 30, 2018, launching took place. It is named after Mount May in Kobe and the heavy cruiser of the same name of the Japanese Navy during World War II. Its commissioning is expected in 2020. The cost of the ship is estimated at 1,5 billion US dollars.
    Key Features: Standard displacement of 8200 tons, total 10500 tons. Length 169,9 meters, width 22,2 meters, draft 6,4 meters. Speed ​​30 knots.
    The ship is equipped with the Aegis Baseline J7 combat system and the Northrop Grumman AN / SPQ-9B radar. The list of weapons includes SM-3 Block IIA and SM-6 missiles.
    A new modification of destroyers with similar dimensions received a displacement of 8200 tons. They are equipped with the Aegis American combat control system with the latest version of the Baseline 9 / Ballistic Missile Defense 5.1 software and the Cooperative Engagement Capability data exchange system, which ships of the US and Australian Navy use today.
    The Maya destroyer is armed with SM-3 Block IIA anti-aircraft missiles designed to intercept short- and medium-range ballistic missiles, as well as SM-6 anti-ballistic missiles, which can also be used to attack surface targets.

      SM-6 what kind of missile defense site? This is just an air defense missile, unlike the SM-3. Good, state-of-the-art, large and insanely expensive (5 lyam bucks) .... well, without AWACS it doesn’t greatly increase efficiency in comparison with SM-2.

      Everything is logical there, they are held together by allied obligations with the USA, the USA, in turn, with Australia, South Korea and NATO, each of them contributes to the collective defense. The question on the contrary must be asked why the Russian Federation in this case is building its frigates and corvettes, if they are nothing against such a block of countries.

      It’s just against S. Korea with their SMD-3 RSD and it’s suitable ... actually it’s only against them, RSD, SM-3 and it’s suitable .... taking into account the number of their missiles with nuclear warheads, and indeed, a thing useful for Nippon.

              Vasily, you understand that I am an opponent of those who are shouting here, collecting “pluses”, such as, “Yes, we will tear everyone up, roll out Washington with a vigorous loaf, Israel with bulldozers, Britain is just one tooth for us ...” Even our fighters, charged with the slogans - "Little blood, on foreign territory", the Great Patriotic War recognized that "the German is a serious man and knows how to fight." Well, you can’t be disdainful and capricious towards the enemy. It never led to anything good. It is necessary to prepare for any war with all seriousness and responsibility. hi

For one simple reason, a hundred years after the civil war ended, history has already put things in their place without us for a long time, it's time to live in today's realities.

    Friends, orientate on prices. I'm not going to buy, I spent money on buckwheat and rice.
    Claimed $ 1,6 billion, this is most likely without taking into account design, i.e. net price?
    How much do we have 22350, 22350M?
    How much will a Leader built with a nuclear power plant cost?

      How much do we have 22350, 22350M?

      Who knows? The figure of 22350-450 million dollars goes for 500, but I strongly doubt its correctness. 22350M - it is impossible to imagine, since it is not yet clear what kind of ship it will be.

      How much will a Leader built with a nuclear power plant cost?

      Given the fact that Kirov cost about 3 submarines of Project 971, it could well extend by 3 billion. But this, of course, is all half-finger-ceiling.

        Meanwhile, not far from Japan, Russian Pacific Fleet sailors cried under the stormy surge on the occasion of the arrival of "Sea Launch Commander" to Slavyanka Bay. Alas, I was right when in November I wrote that for the Pacific Ocean the submarines of the 636th project are already obsolete. You then answered that "they are being spoken about well", but after 3 months you actually took your words back. Welcome back! good

            Andrey, the logic of the state is also not clear to me. There is no money for the development of new submarines, but there is money for acquiring illiquid junk through a private company. There is nothing to make Sea Launch come to life, and is not expected. In addition to stormy relations. I wanted to talk about the relationship between priority and real opportunities.

      You can’t just compare the cost of building a ship with us and with them. The construction cost also includes the payroll, which we have much lower. Email cost energy and other materials is completely different.
      But the indicator of the construction time of the ship can and should be compared.
      A destroyer of 10 tons in 000 years along with tests. How much our corvette is being built will not even be reminded.

        Why - not really? There are submarines, aviation is. What else does?

          They have the American habit of scoring normal RCC, in a situation this device versus Type52 or 55 will be able to hurt him, but he will not.
          And their submarines hunting torpedo NKs with torpedoes are interesting of course, but somehow suicidal. Aviation, especially basic, is aviation ... especially basic.
          Those. they see the situation as "China is trying to isolate / block us, and we will protect shipping is vital for us." This is not a criticism of them (their position is reasonable), this is a clarification.

            Type 52 can be hurt only if there is an external target designation that they will have no one to give them off the coast of Japan. At the same time, YAPs have had RCCs with a range of 150-200 km for a long time, and now they are cutting through supersonic missiles. By the way, on May there are 8 anti-ship missiles "Type 17"

            (shrugging shoulders) the British sharpened their fleet against the submarines and could not do anything to the Argentinean San Luis - in one case, they pursued her for a long time after she fired by torpedoes, but achieved nothing, although they drove 3 ships with helicopters. In the second case, they did not notice a torpedo attack. 1982, however.

            Well, yes. Without aircraft carriers, you can’t really get out of the base aviation, on the one hand, they make their own “destroyers-helicopter carriers,” and on the other, they constantly improve air-launched anti-ship missiles.

    Maya destroyer (DDG-179) project 27DDG

    The destroyer Maya (DDG-179) of the 27DDG project is the lead in the series of ships of the new Atago subclass, called 27DDG, which will be built by order of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces. A new subclass of ships was announced in August 2015. The first two ships of the new class are expected to enter service in 2020 and 2021.
    Ships of this class will specialize in air defense and will complement the anti-submarine destroyers of the 25DD project.
    The 27DDG project is an improved version of the Atago project, within the framework of which two destroyers (Atago and Ashigara) were built between 2004 and 2008. Maya-class ships will differ from their predecessor in an increased hull and displacement, which will allow them to place enhanced weapons.
    The destroyer Maya (DDG-179) was laid down on April 17, 2017 under number 2319 at the shipyard Japan Marine United Corporation in Yokohama. On July 30, 2018, launching took place. It is named after Mount May in Kobe and the heavy cruiser of the same name of the Japanese Navy during World War II. Its commissioning is expected in 2020. The cost of the ship is estimated at 1,5 billion US dollars.
    Key Features: Standard displacement of 8200 tons, total 10500 tons. Length 169,9 meters, width 22,2 meters, draft 6,4 meters. Speed ​​30 knots.
    The ship is equipped with the Aegis Baseline J7 combat system and the Northrop Grumman AN / SPQ-9B radar. The list of weapons includes SM-3 Block IIA and SM-6 missiles.
    A new modification of destroyers with similar dimensions received a displacement of 8200 tons. They are equipped with the Aegis American combat control system with the latest version of the Baseline 9 / Ballistic Missile Defense 5.1 software and the Cooperative Engagement Capability data exchange system, which ships of the US and Australian Navy use today.
    The Maya destroyer is armed with SM-3 Block IIA anti-aircraft missiles designed to intercept short- and medium-range ballistic missiles, as well as SM-6 anti-ballistic missiles, which can also be used to attack surface targets.

    Serious ship.

    And who is stopping you from installing RCC or KR in the UVP? There are plenty of cells there! And also the Japanese, as a result of modernization, Harpoon packages were “stuffed” between pipes (3-4 each) It's simple, there is a ship, there are reserves. hi hi
