A video of the transportation to the British shipyard Rosyth aft of the Prince of Wales aircraft carrier under construction appeared online. To arrive at the assembly site, the largest section — unit IV — traveled 965 km around the northern tip of the United Kingdom, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.


HMS Queen Elizabeth

“A construction weighing more than 11 thousand tons containing the engine room, hangars, residential decks and purpose compartments was built at BAE systems in Glasgow. A block the size of a six-story house was taken out of the shop on a multi-wheeled trailer and loaded onto a barge driven by three tugboats, ”the RG video commented.

On the way section was 5 days. Upon arrival, she was placed on dry dock, where she “met” the rest of the ship.

The Prince of Wales will become the 2 aircraft carrier of the Future Aircraft Carrier (CVF) project, which is being built taking into account the use of the deck version of the F-35 and helicopters of various types. The lead ship of this project, Queen Elizabeth, will be commissioned with a year late - in 2016, the shift to the right was due to problems with the supply of fighters. It is planned that the Prince of Wales will receive its squadron in 2020.

    The aircraft carrier as a whole was not bad. Two minuses - lack of catapults and non-nuclear SU

      And the lack of a normal deck-based aircraft does not bother? Or do you think that before the launch of the aircraft carrier, all problems with the F-35 will be resolved?

        Given the tasks that he will perform (the bombing of villages without air defense systems) - no, not annoying. Although in general, the F-35 project is unsuccessful. But let's not start a conversation on the traveled along and across the topic hi

          Your attitude towards the F-35B is more than understandable, more than contemptuous. What are the advantages of overcoming air defense (not the village) has domestic aviation?

      The use of catapults and aerofinishes in the initial project was not supposed, however, in connection with the decision to prefer the F-35 modification with horizontal take-off and landing, the second ship of this class “Prince of Wales” should have been equipped with a catapult and a hydraulic aerofinisher.
      In 2012, for economic reasons, it was decided to return to the purchase of F-35B aircraft (with the possibility of shortened take-off and vertical landing), abandoning the idea of ​​a catapult launch.
      The reason was the high cost of the electromagnetic catapult.

        The United States, meanwhile, is experiencing a new one: "The electromagnetic catapult first launched a" dead load "from the Gerald Ford on June 5, 2015. The mass of the cart then was 3,6 tons. The aircraft launch device was able to disperse the heavy cart to a speed of 257 kilometers per hour; on the deck of the aircraft carrier "dead cargo" drove a little more than 91 meters.

        When exactly EMALS will launch the aircraft from the deck of an aircraft carrier is not specified. According to current plans, the tests of the Gerald Ford aircraft carrier and all its systems should be completed in the spring of 2016, after which the ship will become part of the American fleet. In 2019, the aircraft carrier will embark on his first long voyage. "

      good Natural nonsense from fierce lack of money. “Enlightened seafarers" have slipped to the level of our admirals ordering according to the principles - both a Swiss and a reaper, and a dude on a pipe, and even with a desire to cram the unbearable.

      It's funny, but the fact is that without Fu -35 it’s a simple helicopter carrier when decommissioned due to the dilapidated ,, Harierov. "

      . A carrier is good - he would have a reactor and electromagnetic catapults

      laughing laughing But misil does not fit in the brain, what is it then, then it will be an ABSOLUTELY another project of the ship, NOTHING with this miracle, which is so admired for not having ???

    They started building in 2011.
    They are going to pass in 2020. Not very fast ...
    Americans put into operation larger Ford vessels
    for 6-7 years.

      The point is financing and determining the presence / absence of a catapult.
      Long spears broke.

    The second island of England is building two aircraft carriers for itself, while in our country liberals with foam at the mouth prove that aircraft carriers are not needed, there will be enough corvetics to protect territorial waters ... sadly. And the aircraft carrier is good - he would have an electromagnetic reactor and catapults and that would be what the doctor ordered for our Fleet.

    They began to build in 2009. The commissioning of the first ship is planned for 2016. second ship in 2018 Nine years for two aircraft carriers. "Gorshkov" started in the same year 2009 half a year earlier. Obviously, it will come into operation more or less simultaneously with Elizabeth. Here is a completely objective and completely clear description of everything that is happening in the field of shipbuilding, in what condition it is and what it can do. When the next time Rozogin tweetes you about 180 Sixtilen atomic "Leaders" by 2020. Feel free to send it on ... Stupidly lying, as usual.
