Launched the third ship of the LCS Independent class.

14 December launched the future USS Jakscon (LCS-5) at Austal USA's Mobile (Alabama) shipyard, which was another major milestone in the Littoral combat ship program. This is stated in the press release of the US Navy on December 15.


Next week at the shipyard Marinette Marine Corp. in Wisconsin, another LCS class ship, the USS Milwaukee (LCS-5), will be launched.

These ships, ordered in 2010, in the LCS program actually mark the beginning of "serial construction". With serial construction, the Navy will be able to realize such advantages as reducing ship costs and reducing construction time.

“Watching a few ships on Mobile’s embankment is great,” said Captain Tom Anderson, program manager for LCS. "Serial construction is in full swing at both production sites, and we see an important stage in the construction of ships."

The baptism ceremony of USS Jakscon will be held in the spring of next year.

    We also need to change the OVR ships. Soon a very old park will remain. When to wait for a replacement?

      Of course, the deadlines for ships to be delivered to the adversaries are quick ... apparently they hit painfully for delays ... we need to start hitting our hands and back, so that we can move!

        They are hardly beaten. Just expose a penalty in the amount of CSO-th how much, then you will stir faster. And if they have already signed a contract, then they will tear the priests to fulfill on time. Ours in this regard would do well to learn.

        The trouble is that their ideology is out of date. The LTCs are modular with unified standardized weapons, and our MRKs have the same stealth. Firstly built in the old way; secondly they have a zoo of weapons that are very difficult to change according to the task. And their seaworthiness is such that no where but the Caspian Sea and with a very big stretch of the World Cup and the Baltic Sea, can not be used. On the other hand, on fishlessness and perch, pike can be counted.

      You are confusing with another ship. There is a whole cruiser. It’s easy to search.

        I just need to work! I remember recently it was written that for failure to fulfill defense orders, enterprise directors will be fined. 30000 rubles belay

        I think in this situation it is easier to steal and not fulfill the order. Think of 30000 rubles in fine, and what are the prospects from the stolen !! whatWell, then the maximum article of the Criminal Code for negligence !! lol

    What can you say here? An unfortunate fact. This fast-moving fool needs a good torpedo. It is necessary to do, create a controllable, long-term analogue of "Shkval".
    Otherwise: the littoral zone may be ours, since it is a shelf. On the shelf, oil and gas are convenient to produce, on the shelf all fish, renewable resources.

    (Tom Anderson), LCS Program Manager. “Serial construction is in full swing at both production sites

    At such a price apiece, talking about mass production is simply stupid!
    Yes, here you have another purchase correction for the second time in history

    But they didn’t indicate the weapons, they know that Russian weapons on surface, and indeed everywhere, will not surpass! They didn’t disgrace! And it’s not a matter of secrecy, the Americans really don’t know how to surprise the world, I read somewhere that many scientists left from Russia in the early 90s decide to return and the Americans are already prophesying a dead end in military development in a few years!

    New “nuclear trains” will be equipped with Yars-based missiles
    Promising military railway missile systems, the development of which is planned to be completed before 2020, will be equipped with a solid-fuel intercontinental ballistic missile with a multiple warhead. This, according to RIA Novosti, said the commander of the Strategic Missile Forces, Colonel General Sergei Karakaev. According to him, the new missile will be created on the basis of the RS-24 Yars.
    The mass of the new missile for the railway complex should not exceed 47 tons. According to Karakaev, the intercontinental missile will be disguised in a refrigerator with a length of 24 meters. The length of the rocket itself will be 22,5 meters. Externally, the "refrigerator car" will not differ from the usual such car; no need to increase the number of axles. The new "nuclear train" will be able to move along any route, but not along a special one with fortified tracks. The fact that railway missile complexes will be created in Russia again was announced at the end of 2012. The preliminary design of the new train is planned to be completed in the first half of 2014.
