Construction of a patrol ship of the Arctic zone for the Canadian Navy begins at the shipyard in Halifax

World Trade Analysis Center weapons (TSAMTO) publishes information that Irving Shipbuilding is starting construction of a patrol ship of the Arctic zone for the Canadian Navy (AOPS class) at the shipyard in Canadian Halifax. The conclusion of the contract between the Ministry of Defense of the country and the company took place back in January of this year. According to the data published by TsAMTO, Irving Shipbuilding requested for the construction of five patrol ships in the Arctic zone 2,56 billion US dollars. In this case, the contract provides for the subsequent order for the Canadian Navy of the sixth similar ship.

It is reported that the names of the class AOPS ships for the Canadian Navy have already been selected. The ships will be named after those who showed themselves during the service on navy famous people in Canada. The lead patrol ship of this project will be called the "Harry DeWolf."

For reference: Harry DeWolf (aka Henry George DeWolf) is the vice-admiral of the Canadian fleet, who showed himself during the Second World War and, as the Canadians themselves report, "during the Cold War." DeWolf commanded (at different times) warships of the Canadian Navy. In 50, he worked at the Canadian Embassy in the United States as a leading military adviser. Subsequently, he was appointed commander of the main headquarters of the naval forces of the country.

The names for the other ships of the Arctic class of the Canadian Navy are: “Margaret Brooke”, “Max Bernays”, “William Hall” and “Frederick Rolette”.

The contract provides for the following deadlines for the delivery of AOPS class ships: “Harry DeWolf” should be commissioned by the Canadian Navy in the 2018 year. The last ship of the series is in 2023.

        In order to sail to the Arctic and see what was already occupied by Russia, it was possible to fly there by plane too!

        Do not forget the Northeast Passage, which also needs to be protected. And do not forget about the claims of countries that are not currently in the Arctic 5-ku. And do not think that they will always jump to the tune of the United States. They are now together against Russia and refugees, and then it is not known. They are already struggling between Great Britain on the one hand and Germany and France on the other. And do not dump domestic problems in these countries that could lead to a sharp change in domestic and foreign policy.

            Most likely a ship with a reinforced ice belt and a propulsion system of increased power.

    Construction of a patrol ship of the Arctic zone for the Canadian Navy begins at the shipyard in Halifax

    Well, what was required to prove. Returning to US servants, the Canadian “mouse heads” decided to join the race for the Arctic.
    Canadian Navy:
    4 diesel-electric submarines are former English type "Upholder", 1986-1992 built, bought in 1998, and after refit, they were commissioned in 2000 — 2004.

    True, the problems started right away due to the lack of infrastructure in 13 years from all 4's, only 1 (one, "Chikutimi") visited the battle formation (2 (two) days), and then went back to doc. There and today , like the rest, who did not make a single campaign.
    The most recent boat came from Britain in a surface position when a fire broke out in one engine compartment. One midshipman died, another was burned. The boat lost its course amid the ocean and was drastically dragged to the Canadian shore — where it still stands
    More precisely, it is not worth it but is being actively repaired. By that time, the military underwater hole will devour 400 billion of money and the veterans' lifespan will remain on 2 years.
    3 of old Iroquois-type destroyers of the P1969-1972. Built, built on the English project Tribal.

    A total of 4 was built, but the Huron DDG 281 was removed from the 31 March 2005, sunk as a target in 2007.

    Of the remaining in combat status, only one ship DDG 282 Athabaskan. The two remaining DDG 280 Iroquois and DDG 282 Algonquin are not capable.
    12 frigates of the type "Halifax" (5 on the Pacific Ocean, 7 on the Atlantic) -modern 1992-1996 ships built

    12 Kingston type patrol ships (6 in the Pacific Ocean, 6 in the Atlantic) 1996-1999 built.

    I completely agree! I read the comments, completely “cheers-patriotism” - everyone makes fun of it! Russia needs to move — to build ice-class warships. We can lag behind. It's good to send the Chelyuskins. And our nuclear-powered ships are civilian vessels. If we pretend to be part of the Arctic- you need a military presence, garrisons on the islands are good, but Russian Arctic waters need to be protected. Moreover, "from the water", aviation has limited time. yes hi

      Yes! And Russia needs to build ships of these types. Nuclear-powered icebreakers will not be able to work in shallow water, in the coastal zone. Yes, and why drive expensive ships for security purposes. Small ships, well-armed, with a solid ice hull and a diesel-electric power train are suitable here high power installation.

    There is such a consideration that Russia should own the entire water area of ​​the Arctic Ocean, in solution between the extreme points of mainland Russia in longitude, with a peak at the North Pole.

    It is widely known that at the North Pole the first were the Stalinist falcons Papanin, Krenkel, Fedorov, Shirshov.

    Not Canadians claim it (although they are trying).

    Well, the USA is just a demonstration two category of American residents - liars (Peary) and fuckers (Cook).

      There are two categories of applicants:

      1. Lapotniki, terrible Siberian men in sheepskin coats.
      2. Exceptional, in all respects, they are God's chosen ones.

      What will be the solution in this case?

      Isn’t it like with Svalbard? Is our pyramid or not ?; it is a museum !, the only place where the heritage of the USSR has been preserved; where you can see and even feel it.

    It seems that all this is done to cut the military budget. Of course, under the banner of protecting interests in the Arctic. But it’s enviable that they have now developed very underwater technologies. And we, as a team from the United States, put the toilet in the 90's into the toilet, and since then we have been using foreign help in the underwater service for offshore production. And it takes up to 70% of all production costs. Goes over the hill. And if the Ministry of Defense certainly understands the protection of the Northern shelf zones, then who will deal with these our "super effective managers" !? Indeed, in this state of affairs - protect, or not protect, all the same, extraction is actually carried out by foreigners!

    We are strong with icebreakers, this is indisputable, but the rest of the question is, we created Arctic brigades (excellent), the Americans “run” practically all the quick reaction forces (and this is not enough) in their training courses in the northern latitudes, established training courses in Alaska, Norway, established a network of airfields, supply bases, so we still need a lot of effort to regain lost ground and introduce new ones, the battle for the Arctic in the near future
