Problems with the bottom topography were not confirmed: the US Navy carrier group led by USS Dwight Eisenhower passed through the Suez Canal

35

The US Navy confirmed information that an aircraft carrier strike group led by the aircraft carrier Dwight Eisenhower passed through the Suez Canal, entering the Red Sea.


It is noted that a group of warships and escort ships from the US Navy followed the canal, which opened for shipping after the unlocking on March 29, together with the USS Dwight Eisenhower aircraft carrier. Among them are the missile cruiser USS Monterey, the destroyers USS Mitscher and USS Thomas Hudner.

In the US Navy:

The passage of our aircraft carrier group has confirmed the navigable Suez Canal. The channel functions normally, allowing large warships to pass through.

This statement came after the Western expert community suggested that after the situation with the container ship Ever Given and the work carried out to remove it from the aground, problems with the bottom topography could arise. It was assumed that the topography of the bottom of the Suez Canal could affect the passage of other large ships and vessels.

Problems with the bottom relief were not confirmed.

Command 5th fleet US Navy:

We appreciate the Egyptian efforts to ensure safe and smooth shipping on this critical route.

It should be recalled that earlier in the United States they stated the need to "change the logistics of operations of the Navy ships in connection with the blockage of the channel."

The Suez Canal Administration is now going to sue the container ship operator for about $ 1 billion.

          If this container ship is cut into ferrous metal and handed over at 20 rubles per kg, will it be possible to repulse the fine?

        The pilot smoked, the rudder was jammed, the GPS was dead, the halyard was wound on the radar antenna, the wheelhouse was de-energized, but you never know the reasons!

          You would also imagine that someone else stuck a couple of Daggers into the bochin for this president - a trio of Daggers to determine the correct lethal dose of this powerful medicine. laughing

    So the submarine "Rostov on Don" all the same drove "Dwight" out of the Mediterranean? And two grandiose dumbbells within a week it would be too suspicious. Well, at least he will stay nearby in the Aegean Sea. Probably not destiny again.

            The width of the canal is 120-150 m along the water surface, 45-60 m along the bottom. Eisenhower at its widest part 76,9m. The depth of the channel is 20m. In Panama, the depth is 12m - and this figure is taken into account when designing ships.

This means that the need to change the logistics of the operations of the US Navy has disappeared, they have experienced pilots. bully

    Well, thank you, Lord!
    And I was so worried, so worried (and worried) - will the US AUG pass! I couldn't eat straight.
    Passed ... Now I am calm for world peace.
    And democracy in all democracy.

    So we took pictures of his peers, he went across the seas and oceans in 77, and I finished school. By the way, he has 4 propellers and probably the same number of rudders. So what kind of kraken he needs.

          Should intelligence report something to you? Where did you get the idea that you slept? And what, in your opinion, should have been done, to intercept the transports over Poland or Ukraine?

    The Nimitz-class aircraft carriers have EMNIP draft of 11,3 m. The channel depth is 22 meters. How can an aircraft carrier run aground and block the channel?

    The depth of the channel is 20m.

    22 meters
