"Epic fail": British sailors mistakenly torpedoed their nuclear facility in southwest England



The next exercise of the British naval fleet almost turned into a tragedy. An emergency occurred during maneuvers on the HMS Argyll warship. The sailors accidentally fired a 45-pound torpedo in the direction of the shipyard. As a result of the incident, only by a miracle no one died. The fact is that in the torpedo at that moment there was no warhead, the British press writes.

The press service of the Royal Navy confirmed the incident. "We confirm that the incident occurred aboard the warship HMS Argyll when the ship was docked at the Plymouth naval base. During the exercise, an unloaded torpedo was launched in the direction of the shipyard. As a result, no one was injured," service edition of The Telegraph.

The Daily Mail said that the incident occurred at the time when Argyll was conducting a system check. A projectile fired randomly flew about 200 meters and crashed into a metal container in which nuclear fuel was stored to refuel nuclear submarines.

Whether the submarines themselves were in the dock at that moment is unknown. The British military left this question of journalists unanswered.

As a result of the incident no one died. The military and the witnesses of the incident got off with a slight fright. Nevertheless, the exercises were suspended. In fact, an emergency investigation is being conducted, during which the causes of the incident are to be established.

Note that the HMS Argyll - the oldest ship that is in service with the British fleet. He was launched in 1989 year. In 2009, it was repaired, which cost the British treasury 20 million pounds.

With this money the ship was equipped with the latest equipment. Now Argyll has anti-aircraft missiles, spear launchers, 4,5-inch guns and two 12,75-inch torpedo tubes Sting Ray.

The Argyll incident is not the first such incident in the United Kingdom. In early March, a shell was fired on a plain in Salisbury, where seafarers often train from a base in Plymouth, which deviated significantly from the course and didn’t explode in one of the nearby villages.

        Notable warriors:


        Because of the frosts, British Marines froze to diapers and refused to participate in exercises



        At Norway’s northernmost military base in the town of Porsanger in the Finnmark region, the British Marines refused to perform combat training missions due to low air temperature. Her Majesty’s subjects stated that they are not able to train in conditions where the temperature drops to minus twenty degrees.

        The base commander of the Norwegian base, Lieutenant Colonel Trond Thomassen, justifying the British soldiers, explained that they have a special attitude to health and safety. They sit in the barracks and flatly refuse to undergo any kind of professional training whenever the thermometer drops below eight degrees.

        Complicating the situation is the fact that in such a cold, soldiers cannot use the diapers that are given to them for the duration of long exercises because of the inability to put toilet stalls in forests, in the mountains and in other rough terrain. Worth the urine to cool as the genitals begin to freeze, and in two military personnel the genitals literally froze to the inside of a disposable diaper. The British soldiers were not able to pour into the snowdrift, as ethnic Norwegians still do, the young generation lost these skills.

        For the Norwegians themselves, this situation caused only a grin. So Labor Norwegian politician Ida Kathrine Balto Bjørnbak told reporters that she was amazed at how soldiers behave. “Let's hope that there will be no winter, no war!” She joked. In her opinion, extreme weather conditions should only temper soldiers. She noted that at NATO, exercises at a temperature of eight degrees are considered “cold winter training”.

        “Eight degrees in northern Norway is a beautiful fall day,” Balto explained. “But we must remember that people from all over the world represent NATO: they are Germans, Spaniards, and Italians. They all live in completely different climatic conditions, ”she concluded.

        True, the Norwegians are perplexed as the ancestors of these same marines fought with the Germans at Narvik. The then British fairly tolerated the April and May cold and courageously fled from Norway not at all because of the cold. Moreover, even their farther ancestors survived frosts in the cold Russian Crimea a century and a half ago, besieging Sevastopol for 11 months. "Yes, the Norwegians conclude, - the Englishman is now not the same."

          Representatives of the command of the British Navy reported that the Russian missile cruiser was discovered in 30 miles from the coast of Scotland. The royal fleet of England was taken by surprise and while the Russian missile cruiser sailed along the coast, England only had one military ship that took 24 hours to reach the area where the Russian Navy was located.

        here are "British scientists" ..

        I am personally interested in the issue of radiation safety of the basing point. How can you store nuclear fuel for a submarine (I think the journalists called TVELs that way - "packages") 200 meters from the NK parking lot and in an open-air iron container, through which you can easily "fill" 45 kg with a torpedo? And where did this happen? Maybe not in Plymouth, but in Devonport? then everything falls into place.
        Devonport is the Royal Navy's naval base near Plymouth, on the border of Devon and Cornwall. The largest of the three British naval bases. Navy Devonport - the only British base capable of providing all types of support ships with a nuclear power plant. The only such ships in the Royal Navy are nuclear submarines.

        So they checked whether it would shoot or not.

        Of course, I am not a torpedo submariner and not even a sailor, but I think that it is not possible to accidentally launch a torpedo. Due to the technical features of torpedo tubes. Although who will take them to NATO there?
        1) First, a torpedo accidentally ended up in a torpedo tube. (This is 200 meters from the nuclear container!)
        2) Then some "whisperer" (probably imagining a Russian bear in fear), who was standing nearby, whispered so that the necessary pressure was created in the torpedo tube for launch.
        3) Well, there may be a number of reasons in general. a) The start happened because someone worried about their genitals threw their frozen diaper overboard and hit the frightened "whisperer". From what he "whispered" even stronger and the torpedo left its deployment. b) The same flying diaper was blown away by the wind on the start button. c) A sailor passing by got entangled in laces and falling, quite by accident, touched the same fatal start button *. d) * you can continue your fantasy with your options wink *

        But seriously. Well, we understand that this cannot be. So another conclusion suggests itself:

I just can't imagine that any captain of the Russian nuclear submarine is completely autonomous, even with a salary of almost 1/2 mulion of our titanium rubles (when I go on alert, and even for the phrase "wooden rubles" I minus hard on all forums available to me).

    Who is the most shouting about the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons ??? The correct answer is USA !!
    And now we look what they have set up ::::::::

    "Military Parity." The draft budget of the US Air Force for 2015 provides for the integration of B61-12 nuclear bombs on F-16 and Tornado fighters of the Air Force of five NATO countries, fas.org reports on March 13. Equipment of aircraft for carriers of nuclear weapons will begin in 2015 and will be completed in 2017-2018.
    Equipping tactical aviation of non-nuclear countries of the bloc with nuclear weapons will significantly enhance the power of the NATO nuclear forces in Europe. Nuclear weapons will be equipped with fighter bombers F-16A / B of the Air Forces of Belgium, the Netherlands and Turkey, and also PA-200 Tornado of the Air Forces of Germany and Italy (in the photo).
    Nuclear bombs will also be equipped with American fighter-bombers F-15E (integration began last year) and F-16C / D, strategic bombers B-2A, as well as fifth-generation fighters F-35A Lightning II, which will later replace the F-16. The US Air Force plans to equip all F-35 fighter jets in Europe by 2024 with nuclear weapons. F-35, capable of carrying nuclear weapons, will be supplied by the Air Force of the Netherlands, Italy, Turkey and, possibly, Belgium.
    From the mid-2020s, B61-12 nuclear bombs will be equipped with the new generation of heavy bombers of the US Air Force LRS-B.
    Re-equipment of aircraft under the carrier of nuclear weapons includes software upgrades, operational flight tests with full weapons integration. In 2015, seven flight tests of this nature are scheduled. The launch of the fully operational 61-12 nuclear bombs is planned for 2020 year. More than 1 billion are planned to be spent on this program, another 154 million will be spent on ensuring the safety of nuclear bases in Europe.
    The integration of American nuclear weapons into combat aircraft of non-nuclear-weapon States that have signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) is at least debatable and contrary to NPT norms.
    How the expansion of the number of countries in Europe that have gained access to nuclear weapons will affect the "bold reductions" of non-strategic (tactical) nuclear weapons of the United States and Russia on the continent to create a nuclear-free world in the future, is another question.

      Fighter bombers F-16A / B of the air forces of Belgium, the Netherlands and Turkey will equip nuclear weapons

      Nah, not equipped! if they are not finalized to version F-16C / D. And this denyushka costs considerable. USerams have yet to modernize the B-61 nuclear aviation ammunition to the 12 modification. For which the Pentagon requested $ 2,0 billion. So there is a big waste ahead.
      And it's not a fact that the planes will break through to an object protected by a strong air defense system. I believe that after the Iskander strikes on the AVB, not many of them will rise into the air at all.

    The press wrote something stupid and everyone picked it up. This frigate is a Type 23 Duke class. You can open Wicca and see! It is in service with England and Chile. There is no torpedo armament on it. It has a cannon, a few bunches of automatic weapons, a Harpoon anti-ship mount of the age of our old cruise missiles and a Seawolf air defense system. ALL! There is also a jammer. So I think that Western journalists mistook this self-propelled obstacle for a torpedo. But it is only 300mm in diameter and weighs 43kg according to various sources. This, in principle, cannot explode, because it is intended for other purposes. For example, take an enemy torpedo away from your ship. A real torpedo does not fly 200 meters from a torpedo tube. She either immediately flops into the water or flies tens of kilometers and falls into the water in the area where the enemy is located, if it is a missile torpedo.
    It is felt that the intelligence of Western hacks is approaching zero!

      Apparently something happened there, but an article from the series "one of my acquaintances heard that someone saw something"

      45kg there are no torpedoes, but oh well. Let the number make a mistake. Anyway 200 m will not fly. Rave
      And imagine a picture: A ship standing in a dock (i.e. not on water) fires an 45-kg torpedo. Which flies through the air 200 m. And gets into a barrel for storing fuel for refueling nuclear submarine reactors!

      By the way, they were built with the expectation of a service life of 18 years - at 91m it was put into operation - at 09m it was recapitalized - everything is strictly according to the regulations.

    The sailors accidentally fired a 45-pound torpedo in the direction of the shipyard. ... An accidentally launched projectile flew about 200 meters and crashed into a metal container

    News that goes from the media to the media, which went through the transfer of unprofessional journalists, finally acquires bizarre significance.
    Now, in order, judging by the primary sources, the following happened.
    The frigate HMS Argyll (F231) was located at the Devonport Naval Base in Plymouth. As a result of a military headache, a training torpedo of 324 mm was launched. torpedo tubes like Sting Ray. The ship stood at the pier, a torpedo flying a couple of meters flopped to the ground and drove into the fence. The incident is over.
    Now where and what came from.
    metal container containing nuclear fuel for refueling nuclear submarines

    Write this can only boob! Nuclear fuel! Stored in a metal container! The container itself is 200m away. from the pier! Fuck just from the imagination of the writer. It began with the ship standing at the base of the nuclear submarine, but the nuclear submarine was not there ...
    An accidentally fired projectile flew about 200 meters

    This is from the story of what happened earlier at the firing range when a projectile deviating five miles fell near the railroad track before reaching 300 yards.
    Well, the last
    Sailors accidentally fired a 45 kg torpedo

    The torpedo had 45kg. BB in the warhead, in the sense of a combat variant 324mm. torpedoes.
