"Roads in Service": the US Navy gets rid of the proposed Ukraine Mk VI patrol boats

The US Navy intends to completely get rid of the Mk VI patrol boats, despite their short service life. According to The Drive, all 12 in service fleet boats will be decommissioned by the end of this year.


According to the newspaper, the Navy plans to get rid of the boats by September 30 or by the end of the year with the start of withdrawal in March. The reason for the "retirement" of the Mk VI patrol boats, the oldest of which is only six years old, is called their inadequacy to modern tasks, as well as expensive maintenance.

In scenarios of modern wars against equal countries such as China or Russia, Mk VIs were considered not very useful. These boats are very expensive to maintain.

- said Major General of the Marine Corps Tracy King.

It is noted that despite the plans of the US Navy to purchase a total of 48 Mk VIs, the fleet purchased only 12 patrol boats at an average price of $ 7 to 8 million each.

However, the American boat building company SAFE Boats International will not stop producing these boats. The thing is that the Mk VI patrol boats will go into service with the Ukrainian Navy. On December 31, 2020, the US Department of Defense issued the first contract to prepare for the start of construction of the first two Mk VI boats for subsequent delivery to Ukraine under the American Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program of intergovernmental foreign military sales.

In total, the Pentagon plans to sell 16 Mk VI boats to Ukraine, totaling $ 600 million, including crew training and technical support. The first six US boats will be handed over to the Ukrainian Navy as assistance, the remaining ten will be bought by Kiev at its own expense. At the same time, it is specified that the delivery of the first two boats will be financed within the framework of the military aid allocated to Ukraine.

In addition to 16 boats, the United States will supply them with weapons: 32 MSI Seahawk A2 remote-controlled artillery mounts (two per boat) with 30-mm Mk 44 Bushmaster II automatic cannons and other equipment.

The total displacement of the boat is 72 tons, length 25,8 m, width 6,2 m and draft 1,2 m. Max. speed - 45 knots. The cruising range is 690 miles at a speed of 30 knots. The crew of the boat is 10-11 people + a possible landing of 7-8 people.

In the standard version, the boat is armed with two 25-mm automatic remote-controlled Mk 38 Mod 2 mounts and six 12,7-mm M2 machine guns on turret mounts.

            After all, it will be possible to stop it only by shooting to kill.

            And this is just that hoh.lyache shit about which I wrote above.
            Remember the stench that spread around the world when you were catching the old hoh. Baby troughs near the bridge.

            There is a huge number of our civil ships in the Azov and Black Seas.
            Hoh .ly will be able to create a problem with the help of these boats.

            We have a big problem - the engine building is disgusting.

            So, you shouldn't throw your hats.

            The boats are new, fast, well armed for their displacement.

            And get them crazy Russophobes.

              After attempting such a breakthrough, all boats and everything that will be nearby can be destroyed right at the basing points. For Georgians, the fleet was reset, and the same can be done with these.

          In terms of dimensions, it resembles a minoski of the times of 1904, and in terms of maximum speed, relatively, too. And the task of the minionocks is to bite and escape ... But now is a different time ... the shells are definitely placed, and not 5% of the covers ...

          As I understand it, these are indicators on a measured mile in ideal conditions. Or, simply calculated. What is most likely.
          You don't think that some displacement boat will try to accelerate 90 km / h during normal waves in the Black Sea of ​​three points? .. This is utopia ... And it is fraught with the destruction of the hull.

        We do not have boats with such speed.

        As a person who has studied the theory of the ship, I will say that if this boat goes at a speed of 45 knots, then it is planing.
        1. Gliding in waves will not work (except for hydrofoils - but there are none), their speed will drop to a maximum of 15 knots.
        2. Aiming on a glider is another task.
        3. A shot from any weapon with a significant recoil will knock down from the glider.

        The most interesting thing is that 30 years ago, Ukraine received from the USSR all the necessary technological and production base in order to cover all the needs of its fleet on its own, and now it receives rubber products and boats (second-hand and "we ourselves don't need ") as something fantastic and rejoice at it. Iran, being in the conditions of sanctions and embargo, independently resolves these issues, supplying IRGC with boats not in dozens, but in hundreds. The last replenishment was 340 boats.

                        Your private affair yes but remember, some characters distorted their native Russian so much that they became a meme ...
                        The dictionary of William Shakespeare, according to researchers, is 12000 words. The dictionary of a Negro from the cannibalistic tribe "Mumbo-Yumbo" is 300 words.

                        Ellochka Shchukina easily and freely managed thirty. Here are the words, phrases and interjections, meticulously chosen by her from all the great, verbose and powerful Russian language:

                        1. Rude.
                        2. Ho ho! (Expresses, as the case may be, irony, surprise, delight, hatred, joy, contempt, and contentment.)
                        3. It's famous.
                        4. Gloomy. (In relation to everything. For example: "Gloomy Petya has come", "Gloomy weather", "Gloomy case", "Gloomy cat", etc.)
                        5. Darkness.
                        6. Horror. (Creepy. For example, when meeting a good friend: "creepy meeting").
                        7. Boy. (In relation to all familiar men, regardless of age and social status).
                        8. Do not teach me how to live.
                        9. As a child. ("I hit him like a child" - when playing cards. "I cut him like a child" - apparently, in a conversation with the responsible tenant).
                        10. Crr-rasota!
                        11. Thick and handsome. (Used as a characteristic of inanimate and animate objects).
                        12. Let's go in a cab. (Spoken to her husband).
                        13. Let's go to the taxi (male friends).
                        14. Your back is white (just kidding).
                        15. Think about it!
                        16. Ulya. (Affectionate ending of names. For example: Mishulya, Zinulya).
                        17. Wow! (Irony, surprise, delight, hatred, joy, contempt and contentment)

                        The words remaining in extremely small numbers served as a transmission link between Ellochka and the clerks of department stores.

    I will not say anything about the effectiveness of these boats to defend and attack in the coastal zone, but Ukraine needs to calm down with wet dreams of conquering the World Ocean and focus only on its piece of the Black Sea - for this, the independent budget will pull from 10 boats of this type, but that's all the rest will need to be sold and no longer built! In Nikolaev, to create a museum of the grandiose success of Independence - against the background of sold-out shipyards, a rusty missile cruiser "Ukraine", next to the smaller "Sagaidachny" and a submarine "Zaporozhye" welded to it, then a boat that Petya releases on his Forge and a rubber boat with patches from Americans - so that the soul of every young fellow at the sight of this spectacle overwhelms his soul with pride and greatness of the achievements of Ridney Nenka! laughing

    Kiev will buy out at its own expense... At the same time, it is specified that the delivery of the first two boats will be financed within the framework of the military aid allocated to Ukraine.

    Few Ukrainians receive IMF loans. Even Americanosoffskoy military "aid" is received with puppy delight and devotion in the eyes.

    Initially, it was not clear why the fleet needed these boats. They are the maximum for the coast guard. They do not meet modern threats. For instance:
    The Turks launched an unmanned boat. They plan to purchase 100+ pieces. 11-meter boat is capable of speeds up to 65 km / h, range - 400 km, weight - 2 tons

      Miracles however

      The boat costs 7 lyamas - and its service (judging by the supply to the country 404 lol lol ) - 30 million belay
      Again, you can scare others with aircraft carriers - it's money in your pocket, when you are "all over the place!"
      and these boats are only for the coast guard, no more ...

    Expensive, but we will give it to the brotherly people for pumping gas, let them buy boats, they will also have a salute

    Where does Ukraine get the money for the construction of Turkish frigates and the purchase of expensive boats?
    But they also buy bayraktars and other equipment
    For 3 years they had no money for normal armor for armored personnel carriers and suddenly appeared again, and the financial situation only gets worse every year - so who finances this rearmament?

    If it is necessary to destroy a poor state, it must be presented with an aircraft carrier.

    They can drink these combat boats. Or exchange it for money, and for money to buy a green cage near the hut, the hut itself, and of the piglets. Or a hatynka somewhere in Nemetchina. Or in Kanadchina. Housekeeping in their favor in those parts is very honored.
    Moreover, this option, about the economy, is more reasonable given the gloomy Ukrainian prospects. The lads who have access to this property will not click their beak.
    American boats and European lace panties are not suitable for survival, you can't eat them, and you can't keep warm in panties in the cold.
    In general, the Ameros provide the opportunity for normal tribal relations for the natives. They will receive this illiquid stock, sell it and be able to maintain their own cute farm traditional way of life.

    For Americans, "too expensive to maintain" but for the poor ukrov just right!
