The new generation of British submarines haunts failures

24

Despite serious budget cuts, the UK plans to spend around 10 billion pounds on new military equipment in the coming 160 years. Most of the funds should go to the construction of nuclear submarines of a new type.


However, from the very beginning, the multi-billion dollar project was overshadowed by scandals due to development errors and technical problems. About why London does not want to abandon this project, causing a very ambiguous reaction, said the correspondent of RT Sarah Firth.

    Americans order helicopters in Russia, and the British can embody Russian submarines. A lot of money! And we will help as Vietnamese: in Baltiysk we will teach to use equipment and walk unnoticed.

      It would be fun, except for helicopters for amers, submarines for Britons, and more rockets for the NATO missile defense to shove them!

        The failure of the Britons and Americans is making me feel good,
        I think that the mood is rising not only with you !!!! But there is but in the form of the first phrase in the publication.
        The UK plans to spend about 10 billion pounds on new military equipment in the next 160 years.
        I would say the words of the movie hero from Swadba in Robin, then they will rob. The treasury is empty, England has been engaged in its entire history, whether by sea robbery (Middle Ages), or robbery. In the early 90s, Russia was robbed, now they have taken up Egypt, Libya, Syria, and they are looking at Iran. So, most likely, the replenishment of the budget of this state will occur, as always, at the expense of others.

          It’s high time for the British to take their expenses on nuclear submarines not in pounds, but in pounds laughing
          As for the project itself, it seems that they ... just got lost. They started to shove automation there not because of its necessity, but in pursuit of fashion. So they screwed up ...

          And still rob, much less, of course, but still.

          Why, lightly, if you catch up, so that later they would develop new crutches for yourself, and not think about boats and robberies yes

      The British will not allow them to take their pride, and in society there will be an Achtung, as from the France-Russia deal on the Mistrals, only a thousand times worse laughing

    If the engineers had no difficulties in designing and manufacturing anything, there would be no progress.
    Humanity has always asked itself the question, “why?”
    I am convinced that even in the production of light bulbs or radio, Edisson or Popov-Marconi experienced difficulties.

      They talk about the corrosion of parts and try to somehow connect it with the electronics. Without a competent question, the lack of answers from BAE is not surprising ... and also called herself Sarah :)

      In principle, I agree ... But when !! The submarine to bring it is not even a “mace" to bring to condition. The flag is in their hands, of course, but I don’t envy ... Our latest series have also started without problems, but quickly. And this is with us. With our problems. And they kind of should not have such problems ...

      They will do everything right, Always the first-born of the new series presents problems that were not there before, The same is with us, the Premier League is a junction of the latest technologies and they bring surprises about which we did not know, This is progress, Especially in offshore construction It’s not possible to foresee everything at this level. Do you think we have no problem then I don’t think whose fun it is to write all sorts of rubbish,

    The construction of the British Navy is carried out in accordance with the "Armed Forces Development Program for the Period Until the 2015 of the Year." According to her, construction continues four (out of seven) new-generation “Astute” type submarines, which will replace the Swiftshur-class nuclear submarines. On 27 of August 2010 of the year, the main submarine, the Estyut, was introduced into the combat structure of the Navy. The commissioning of the second submarine - "Em-Bush" - in 2011 year. The third and fourth (Artfal and Odeshes) are at various stages of construction. In addition, it was decided to build the fifth and sixth buildings of this type. A little, but effective.
    And the 20 Britons did not have years of collapse and degradation of the shipbuilding base, dispersal of sensible workers at the IP, an - "a stone flower does not come out!" They did not have our Soviet backlog. An "not everything is so smooth in the kingdom" (in the text - Danish) b .. lyadsky.
    With the help of amers, they will certainly bring the electronics to mind, replace the navigation system and will no longer hang around in shallow water ... Nevertheless, it’s nice that this prim audience is not so smooth, they have problems, and not just Bulava and me.
    PS. Our boats are more beautiful! Yes, and the propulsion of the body is better! - purely in appearance.

    Additional efforts to build the UK submarine fleet were caused by a joint program with the United States to ensure the closure of its oceans sector. Life makes its own edits. There are plans. The possibilities are not very.

    I do not see any super-problems. The boat is new, not worked out, so small problems are not surprising. In our history, all this was also. So derogatory statements are in my opinion inappropriate. If the problem is in electronics, then replacing all this is not difficult, now everything is modular ...

      Namesake! You would at least occasionally read the posts of members of the forum: there are a lot of interesting things, maybe you would learn something, learn something useful for yourself. And if you don’t want to get into the wiki, you will read that “On 27 of August 2010 of the year, the main submarine, the Estyut, was introduced into the combat structure of the Navy. And you're talking about the holes of the 80's!
