The US Navy has coded the details of the collision drone with a missile cruiser

The details of the drone attack during the planned cruiser exercises off the coast of California became known. Earlier it was reported that the incident occurred during the planned exercises of the cruiser off the coast of California. According to preliminary data, during the flight at the drone there was a breakdown and he fell aboard a warship.


But later published photos of damage to the USS Chancellorsville missile cruiser, there was a side opening in the ship's superstructure as a result of a missile target.

The 60-cm hole in the USS Chancellorsville (CG 62) URV cruiser add-on with the latest Aegis (Baseline 9) ASM system from the BQM-74 target missile during the Combat System Ship Qualification Trials of this very "latest version of automated battle control systems" .

In the absence of any official explanations, it is rather difficult to determine the exact cause, but our colleague Prokhor Tebin assumes that everything happened because the ship did not plan to actually use air defense weapons during the exercises (except for tracking the object).



When the unexpected happened, it was too late to launch the missiles, and they did not manage to switch the CIWS from manual (which is practiced during the exercises) to automatic mode. If CIWS was used, then to no avail. Those. this event does not tell us that Aegis is godlessly outdated and is not coping with its tasks. But the lack of clear explanations from fleet is surprising.

Recall that as a result of the incident, two crew members of the missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville were injured. Damage to the ship at the moment hidden from prying eyes and all information about the incident kept secret.

    Isn't that yesterday’s photo of a rocket hole in exercises ???? what

    1. The US Navy has classified the details of the collision of a drone with a missile cruiser ..
    2.The details of the drone attack became known ...
    - even not some kind of surasitsa !!

      Yes, yesterday's news was heatedly discussed. But if you look at the size of the hole, then it does not seem that the target rocket hit. I remember in the 87th year our RTOs burned out completely from a missile hit.
      On the other hand, the UAV should be large enough to leave such a hole.

          The message is about the same incident. Only view from the side.

            If they hide it, it’s not everything is clean, but what it means is that they didn’t expect the missile to fly over in the training, it means that the training failed, or the equipment or calculations did not work as it should, in any case, it will be necessary to conduct a flight debriefing and look for those responsible ! Since the prestige of either technology or those who exploit it suffers !!!

        The air target of Chukar is practically an analogue of the Tomahawk in dimensions, and this is at least 533 mm. in diameter plus aerodynamic surfaces and a canopy of corner reflectors and antennas. When hit, the Chukar case apparently did not collapse, thereby the remaining fuel did not leak out and there was no fire. Or maybe the fire extinguishing system worked well.

    And why, then, in the pictures in yesterday's article, water splashes accompanying the target missile are visible? And why then, as they wrote, a remotely controlled target stuck in the side of the ship?
    The tests failed successfully! hi

      This is the left photo, they stuck to see to the mass, this photo has been around for many years and does not apply specifically to the incident.

    Yes, with a "hole" as they say - to hell with it.
    What is important is the FACT itself, the overturning of the myth about the power of the "new system" .... The myth, along with the rocket, also flew into the "hole" called "anal".

      So then it is. Only now it is thought that if the rocket flew into the side, then the destruction would be much more serious. The fuel was not burnt there. Even assuming that it didn’t get inside, it would burn like on board to go nuts. But the photo shows no signs of fire. The drone rolls more under this disaster.

    After the battle, they don't wave their fists. It would be interesting to look at the vaunted Ticonderogs with their weakened hulls if the Russian Granite got there ... Probably, the roof would be blown away ... :)

    the ship did not plan to actually use air defense during the exercises

    Bullshit is all that. In real life, if the target leaves the trajectory, it will self-destruct. In this case, they shot a target at the ship, but with a predetermined miss, which for some reason did not work. The target is an expensive thing like going to sea, "just like that" they shoot with a target at the telemetry range, which means the exercises were planned with live firing unambiguously.

      It is scary to say, but American rednecks targets are caught and reused.

        Yeah .. that is, did not hit. Or didn’t they shoot so as not to upset themselves?

        In principle, training torpedoes are also caught. But purely out of objectivity, I suppose that target shooting was carried out by specular reflection. Then the target is reused. Simple rationality.

      she is self-destructing

      this type of target is reusable
      and until now no one can say exactly what they experienced, but were there any planned live firing at all?

    I think there’s nothing for drones for aerial combat, but for reconnaissance activities and attacks on ground targets.

    If there is a photo, what kind of secrecy can there be? Only damage can be classified.

    And the hole is strange, don’t you? There are no traces of the collision of the wings of the rocket, the hole itself is far from round. No burning marks. How so?

      Yes, it is light. The fuel must have been exhausted.

    hit the destroyer? made a hole there? what joy!! fellow
    and if you seriously think about it, they will draw the appropriate conclusions from this. they are not used to throwing their hats over. but if a combat missile would get there, I would be glad too.

    Dear colleagues! And the ugly Yankees could not test something new, such as a combat LASER. Hence, everything was classified. T.K. all other things being equal, the target rocket had to go with the parameter. According to the safety conditions and the BP courses, this is the way it is supposed to, both with us and with them. Only at live targets they rarely shoot: this is an expensive pleasure. Here is a life story. At the joint exercises, the Baltic Naval Operation (Baltops), was to conduct a counter artillery battle with the implementation of practical firing at a maneuvering target boat under radio control. All NATO brethren "popukat" from their pushenka, but did not get. And then it was the turn of our "Persistent" (em pr.956). The lion clearly took the boat in the machine gun for escort. 130-mm "double-barreled" (AK-130) spat a couple of sighting guns, and then went to defeat, a series of 10 went. But after 6 shells, the rest fell to the place where the radio-controlled target boat. This phase of the teaching was led by a Dane. I remember, he kept on trying: what to do now, because the boat was supposed to provide power supply for another 10 years. In short, in subsequent years we were offered to put the shells in the wake with a 5 kbt offset along the stern of the target. This is how our "gunners" accidentally upset our incredible friends.
