Laid down the keel of the second Hobart class air defense destroyer for the Australian Navy

The Alliance AWD Consortium announced 3 February in Adelaide, Australia, the groundbreaking ceremony for the keel of the Brisbane Hobart class destroyer.


Brisbane is the second of three Hobart-class destroyers ordered for the Australian Navy.

As TSAMTO previously reported, the Australian government signed 2007 of the year with AWD Alliance, including ASC, Raytheon Ostralia and the MoD’s Arms and Logistics Organization (DMO), a contract worth around 8 billion Australian dollars (6,7 billion US dollars) for the construction of Hobart class destroyers, created on the basis of the F-100 destroyer project of the Spanish company Navantia.

ASC is the main contractor for the construction of the destroyers Hobart, Brisbane and Sydney, which is carried out in a modular fashion. The blocks are manufactured at shipyards in Adelaide (ASC), Melbourne (“BAE Systems”), Newcastle (“Forgax”) and Ferrol (“Navantia”). Three additional sonar units will be built in Spain and the UK.

After the assembly phase is complete, the destroyers will be launched and will undergo a series of sea trials.

The keel laying ceremony for the first AWD destroyer took place at ASC’s Adelaide facility in early September 2012. It is planned that it will be launched in the coming months. One of the following key points for the destroyer "Hobart" will be the activation of the combat system after its tests on ground-based facilities.

According to the schedule, the Australian Navy Hobart (AWD-01) will be delivered in March 2016, the Brisbane (AWD-02) in September 2017, and the Sydney (AWD-03) in March 2019.

    Great news BUT for Australians.
    <<The keel of the second Hobart class air defense destroyer was laid for the Australian Navy.>>
    We do not even have such ships in the project.
    And the last destroyer for the Russian Navy was built 20 years ago.

      As I understand it, an average of two and a half years per destroyer? In my opinion is not bad?
      Something tells me that the Australian Navy will receive them by the due date?
      I’ll go and have a cup of tea!

        Actually 3.5 years. And it's not "not bad", but oh..no. When we already have ships not for 8-10 years to build.

      No

      The last destroyer (BOD "Admiral Chabanenko") was handed over to the sailors in 1999

      Around the same time, the destroyers "Important and" Thoughtful "were transferred, but a year later the flag of the Navy was lowered on them and they were sold to China

        Well, the shepherd has never been classified as a destroyer, although it has strike weapons. And Sarych, too, can hardly be called a destroyer, since his limited capabilities are poor. These two projects were supposed to work in tandem then they made up a sufficient connection itself.

      This is the most progressive method. When a project is assembled not on one super-shipyard with the corresponding cash costs, but on a heap of enterprises, while completely complete units are delivered to the assembly site and assembled like LEGO! First of all, it allows you to speed up the construction (you do not have to wait until these are built to build it - and they collect everything in parallel, and if there is a delay, then the delay is on 1-2-3 blocks, and not on the whole ship), secondly cheaper, third more technologically.

    And how you want to hear "In Russia, at such shipyards, ten new-generation destroyers, five ATRKRs were laid down (delivered !!!), all Orlans were repaired and modernized, another 15-20 nuclear submarines were commissioned, etc.). It's a shame for the state!

    An orbital combat group must exist and must be fully prepared for launch every day.

    And if in order to achieve the security of Russia and our friends, an autonomous, eternally and repeatedly operating shock-blocking complex "Death Star" is needed, it must be created.
    And no excuses, such as "expensive", "unaffordable" - 57 types of weapons combined in it, capable of operating in 18 environments, with a destructive power of 20 Megasuns, with a sensitivity to the flame of 3 matches in enemy territory, with a speed that ensures interception of all types of missiles at a flight distance of no more than 500 km, based on an artificially controlled stealth asteroid - the technologies created for it will provide parity to all mankind in confrontation with disgusting smelly green men from the cosmo-democratic intergalactic bank for reconstruction and development.
