Norfolk shipyard sues US Navy over USS Bataan

25

It became known that the Norfolk shipyard had filed a lawsuit against the US Navy in a United States federal court.


Representatives of the shipyard report that the command of the Navy refuses to pay for the work carried out on the landing ship USS Bataan (LHD-5). This ship once featured in scandalous reports: the United States used it as a prison ship, in which terrorist suspects were kept without trial or investigation.

The US Navy allegedly expressed dissatisfaction with the performance of the contract by the contractor. In response, the contractor provides data from independent experts, which, in his opinion, must prove that all work carried out at the BAE Systems NSR shipyard corresponds to the order.

The claim states the amount that the shipyard intends to sue from the US Navy. This is about $ 1,2 million.

The essence of the order was as follows: "to update and improve the military-technical capabilities of the landing ship." At the same time, the Navy began to make additional requirements already as the contract was fulfilled by the shipyard. The shipyard notes that they made adjustments to the ongoing repair measures, but in the end, the Navy refused to pay for the repairs.

The Navy counters, saying that it has come to this, since the shipyard has not fulfilled its obligations on time.

Now it is expected that the dispute between the shipyard and the naval forces could drag on due to the appointment of additional legal and technical expertise, which will take not only time, but also significant funds. These funds will have to be paid to the party that loses the case.

      The joke is that the ship is named after the epic trendyules, which the Japanese wrote for the mattresses and in honor of which General MacArthur, who threw his soldiers to death, received the stigma of a coward and a deserter and the nickname "Baatan Fugitive" laughing

        There was also a second battle for Bataan, with strictly opposite results - the Japanese were defeated.

          Only in the 45th year, nothing epic happened. It seems that the troops, 15 times superior to the enemy, with complete domination in the sea and in the air, could not force the garrison to capitulate ... In general, a feat to name ships in his honor did not work out. But the first one was epic, especially considering that the Americans with the Filipino troops were much more Japanese ... The memory of this will live forever! In the form of floating concentration camps under a striped flag ...

            There was no garrison there, in 1945 the Japanese fortified themselves in the mountains, and in two weeks they were almost completely killed.
            In 1942, the Americans held out from January to April until supplies ran out.

              Heroically! 110 thousand in defense in fortified positions against the landing from the sea in 75 thousand in total laughing Then they meekly surrendered, since the commander escaped in front of his screeching in early March. Of course, this is a feat of a scout, in the sense of a heroic override, almost 300 Spartans ... In honor of this, the floating concentration camp was named, tk. in 1945 the Japanese no longer had a garrison, which means that it will obviously not work to name it

                There were no 110 Americans.
                And there was no garrison in 1942 either.
                There were no garrisons at all.

                      110 thousand troops on the one hand, against 75 on the other. I already understood that you are on the portal - at work, but you are burning - it's cheap.

    Did the customer start adjusting the technical specification right during the work? Can not be, this never happened before, and again the same. smile

      It's amazing ... We are already used to the misuse of funds, kickbacks, financial violations, counterfeit spare parts, and America, I think, too. And in any army in the world, to a greater or lesser extent, this happens. We are trying, as best we can, to plant such would-be contractors. But just like that, easily, the state! and threw it for money ... We have never seen anything like this ...

    America is a country of litigation. Every nail is spelled out in the contract. I don’t believe that you can just change the technical specification in this case.

    Yes, you need to burn the ship and all the business then, since they do not want to pay. Ask some Juan to light a cigarette somewhere not "there."

      Is the ship at the shipyard? They write that somewhere in the region of Iran or Syria.

    Strange, but that the shipyard, which is located on the territory of the naval base, is not a naval one? Is she private?

    The ship - the Wasp type - is very actively used by the Americans in a variety of tasks, from humanitarian to military operations against the ISIS-banned deck Harriers.
    Perhaps a graphic illustration of why the UDC is needed.
