British Navy will not write off two landing ships

40

The military of this country was unhappy with the decision on the possible early withdrawal from service of the British Navy of the universal amphibious assault ships HMS Albion and HMS Bulwark. Many of them believed that this would weaken the combat capabilities of the British Armed Forces. therefore news the fact that the Royal Navy still will not write off these two landing ships was received positively.


This is reported by the British Internet portal UK Defense Journal.

The decision to return the ships to service was enthusiastically adopted as in the Royal navyand the British Marines, which nearly lost their most efficient delivery vehicle. They were glad that the "death of the British landing" was postponed at least until the 30s.

From the early 2010s to the present, these two Albion-class UDCs have been in reserve, awaiting disposal. But the need for their return to service was shown by the experience of the participation of the British Armed Forces in hostilities in Afghanistan and Iraq. Therefore, for them there were tasks provided for by the new defense concept "Global Britain" approved by London.

Now, the Royal Navy will have five UDCs capable of delivering marines over long distances from the British Isles. Albion-class landing ships are capable of carrying on board up to 710 Marines, up to four landing craft, up to 67 armored vehicles and two Chinook HC2 helicopters.

          On the Mistrals, the filling was all ours, only iron and it was dismantled after the refusal to sell. For which the francs, according to the terms of the contract, also paid extra. Having bowed under the FSA, they got a hole in the finances of this company and were forced to sell it to others in order to patch it up, and the shipyard was idle for several months.

            So, in fact, more than 90% of the time, consumables, other maintenance costs would fall on the equipment of a foreign manufacturer .... a special "kick" would come when the manufacturer refused to supply consumables, spare parts, etc.

              Ours bought them not only for their intended use, but also to gain technological experience in building such ships. For this, there was a group of specialists at the shipyard to track the work being carried out and receive the work performed, by signing intermediate acts. Yes, there were losses, but there were also gains. Our hand-wu should have been quicker to attend to the production of our own UDCs, and not to stumble on the choice of options - time is more expensive than the wishes of some admirals.

      So yes Victor! But no matter how they landed, where the "Nord Stream" on the coastal zone will begin to be mounted .. Anglo-Saxons are vomiting farts, just like their satellites in Kiev ..
      They threaten Germany, and Russia too .. Where else can they land?

      It makes no sense. Seriously though, now negotiations are underway on the Estonian scheme for minesweepers. 2-3 ships. The British will write off just 2 pieces soon (buildings of the late 90s) - cheap sale, expensive repairs and modernization (well, how expensive, Estonians seem to have met 50 Euros for all three).

        Renovation and modernization cost 30 million euros
        Modernization is inexpensive, taking into account the fact that almost completely the electronics have been changed to modern
        The modernization is carried out under a contract worth about 30 million euros (35 million dollars) ... The modernization package includes the supply of new navigation systems, sonar systems "Type 2193" (replacing SONAR 2093), combat command and control systems M-CUBE (will replace NAUTIS 3). The project also includes the establishment of a mine action information center and Thales assistance in training specialists for its operation.

        Good minesweepers. The British have a large fiberglass non-magnetic hull, mine detecting GAS, electric propulsion and search submersibles for minesweepers of the late 80s ...

                    Well, of course, in Iraq, the British MP captured Baghdad, Basra and Mosul with one blow?))) I have not forgotten anything?))), Taking into account the qualitative and quantitative advantage the coalition had over Iraq. It is not even funny to cite this operation as an example, if you please - this is a war of different centuries.

    The author of these ships of the UDC has never been (visually, even a schoolchild can distinguish, the UDC has a through deck) ...
    Albion-class amphibious assault ships are amphibious assault ships in service with the British Navy. The type consists of two ships, HMS Albion and HMS Bulwark, ordered in 1996 to replace the obsolete Fearless ships. Both ships were built by BAE Systems Marine at Vickers Shipbuilding and Engineering in Barrow-in-Furness. HMS Albion entered service in 2003 and HMS Bulwark in 2004. The crew of the Albion-class ships consists of 325 people and can accommodate up to 405 more people. It can carry on board thirty-one large and thirty-six small transports, capable of landing the Challenger 2 main battle tank. Also on board the ships are eight landing craft for the landing of troops.
