"The hunt" failed: the newest British ship broke down after the start of the campaign

80

P-224 HMS Trent



Royal's newest warship fleet worth about £ 100 million, broke down at sea just days before his first military campaign.

According to Western media outlets, the power plant of the HMS Trent patrol pennant has failed. The engine failure occurred shortly after he went to sea for the second time and spent only three days in open waters.

The ship was captured at the moment when it was "dragged back to the port", writes the Western press. HMS Trent was to join the NATO mission "to hunt terrorists and human traffickers." He left his home in Portsmouth, UK on 3 August. Gibraltar was the first port to enter the pennant.

The battleship was heading for the eastern Mediterranean when "something went wrong." The captain unrolled the pennant entrusted to him and they managed to return to the Gulf of Gibraltar on their own "sails", but then tugs were called to help enter the harbor.
The Royal Navy later reported that the ship was damaged and is now awaiting spare parts for repairs.

The P-224 HMS Trent was laid down in October 2015 at a shipyard in Glasgow, launched in March 2018, and commissioned on 3 August this year. It belongs to the Batch 2 type - the third generation of British river-class patrol ships, designed to combat piracy, smuggling, terrorism, fishing protection, border patrols, and naval defense. HMS Trent is the third ship in this project out of five.

It seems that this time the newest British ship will not be able to take part in the "hunt for terrorists", moreover, deployed in the eastern Mediterranean, where the situation already looks very tense.

      A great shame and humiliation for a warship that is like this in peacetime "dragged by the nostril"...

      You can certainly recall similar cases with the ships of the Russian Navy, but who is Russia -
      this "regional power","a gas station country with a torn economy", compared to Great Britain,"mistress of the seas"with her Grand Fleet?

        And if you read the article carefully:
        "The captain unrolled the pennant entrusted to him and they managed to return to the Gulf of Gibraltar on their own" sails "
        The engine did not fail completely. The ship reached Gibraltar on its own.

              So it is so, but what if tomorrow is a war, and it does not walk, but only floats. Maybe it is necessary to extend the time of sea trials, and not to throw "on the hunt", otherwise it will not take long to turn from a hunter into a trophy. hi

                Well, in general, it is not noticed that British squadrons or
                individual ships of the first class were accompanied by tugs
                in their foreign campaigns.
                That is, somehow they cope. recourse

                  Maybe because the number of squadrons, ships of the first class and even tugs has been greatly reduced? The American warrant comes with an auxiliary fleet and does not show off, and only fashion magazines do not write about the decline of the British fleet in Albion

        Lukoil, by the way, is an excellent oil. Steamers ride on it in my company. Yanmar, Wärtsilä, Volvo-Penta. On old steamers SKL and Skoda - they work perfectly. For a month, they wind up 500-600 hours, the military never dreamed of this.
        We have now even abandoned the practice of changing oil "by the hour" on new ships. Each steamer has an express laboratory, and the oil is checked at the 200th hour of operation, and then every 100 hours. Replacement only when the analysis shows that the parameters "floated".
        Plus, in Lukoil, it is something that can be ordered directly from the brand's representatives, and you can be sure that they will not bring an underground shmurdyak.

    And it was necessary to help the British, to repair their ship, as the Americans helped in the Arctic Ocean, when their nuclear submarine froze into the ice of the ocean. For Russia, prestige, but for NATO members, a shame on the whole world! laughing wink

    "....It belongs to the Batch 2 type - the third generation of British patrol ships of the so-called "river class"(River-class).... "

    And why not stealth, then we are not afraid of pirates. And a little more serious enemy, so immediately we are looking for an invisible hat. I will give advice the best disguise from everyone, this is to take so much on the chest so as not to see anyone and then no one will see the English ships.

    The girls "break" - the equipment refuses. After a failure from an inoperative state, it is transferred to an operable state.
