On UDC Bonhomme Richard of the US Navy, deliberate arson could occur: a sailor was detained

74

On American television, a report was released on the fire on the US Navy's Bonhomme Richard universal amphibious assault ship. The ship caught fire a few weeks ago while at the San Diego naval base. As a result of the fire, the UDC burned out almost completely. Initially, it was reported that the cause of the fire could be a violation of safety rules during repair (welding) work.


Now on the 10th channel of American television, which is an integral part of ABC, material has been released, which says that the investigators consider arson to be the main reason for the fire. A released interim report says one US Navy soldier is under investigation. It is he who is suspected of setting fire to the UDC, which led to multimillion-dollar damage.

From the report:

The fire that took place on July 12 may have been deliberate. Investigators identified the sailor as a suspected arsonist. Several search warrants were obtained for the seaman's home and service area.

At the moment, neither the name nor the specific rank of the suspect has been reported.

In the United States, they say that if this is really an arson carried out by one soldier, then it will be necessary to state the maximum damage ever inflicted by one sailor to the US naval forces. Now in the United States, the question is raised about the lack of control over the implementation of repair and modernization work and about the vulnerability of American ships during repair operations.

A video reminder of how the fire was extinguished at the Bonhomme Richard UDC:

      Not. Why is it so difficult, just Stirlitz and there is a clear trace of Moscow. repeat For the combat readiness of the US Navy has suffered irreparable damage (they have everything flawed, from ideology to the Clintonites)
      It is time for the United States to raise concerns.
      Helicopters with buckets look like a dummy and resemble Duremar (6753 more buckets and our Golden Key). It's time to buy the BU-200.

      Nothing strange, almost any fire is not complete without such a statement. Everywhere "boy with matches." Everything can be attributed to this "boy with matches", and the burned down village, warehouses with ammunition and fuel, and even some kind of UDC and even more so. You can, of course, look for the "Hand of Moscow or Beijing" lying next to the UDC.

    As far as I remember, a nuclear submarine burned down during repairs in the United States some time ago. The investigation found out the reason - set it on fire: one worker wanted to go home early. Well, I collected rags in the bow compartment and lit them in the hope that due to the resulting smoke, everyone will be evacuated and sent home ...
    However, the boat burned out entirely without the possibility of recovery.
    Then the Premier League, now the UDC - but a trend!
    And which ship of the US Navy will be next: an aircraft carrier? cruiser? destroyer?

    To burn a steamer, it is necessary to use firewood. It is necessary that many factors coincide. It burned itself once, extinguished it and did not even leave the field. The boiler room was on fire. They extinguished immediately and competently. repeat

    As a result of the fire, the UDC burned out almost completely.
    Not so sick !!! good
    one US Navy soldier is under investigation. It is he who is suspected of setting fire to the UDC, which led to multimillion-dollar damage.
    There would be more such sailors in the Merikatos fleet !!! good

    "In the United States, they say that if this is really an arson carried out by one soldier, then it will be necessary to state the maximum damage ever inflicted by one sailor to the US naval forces ..." (c) laughing The late McCain's record is at stake.

    Putin's agent !!! one hundred%
    But seriously, HOW could it burn out almost completely? Are there wooden partitions chtol?
    Or maybe they didn’t actively extinguish it and someone will receive such a sickly insurance?

    ... then we will have to state the maximum damage ever caused by one sailor to the US naval forces.

    Something tells me that the submarine will be more expensive yes
    In 2012, America lost its multibillion-dollar attack submarine Miami (USS Miami SSN 755) in a fire caused by a worker who wanted to get home as soon as possible.
    Initially it was assumed that the repair would take three years and $ 450 million, but later this figure was changed to a range of $ 450 to $ 700 million ... On March 28, 2014, the sub was officially decommissioned and is subject to disposal

    It is strange that Russia and VVP personally have not yet been blamed for this fire.
