London has postponed the purchase of American patrol aircraft

42
The British government has postponed the purchase of 9-American patrol aircraft Boeing P-8A Poseidon due to the excessively high cost of cars, reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with a link to the bmpd blog.




The purchase of Poseidons was planned for the current year. According to the newspaper, they “were supposed to close the gap in the anti-submarine and patrol aviationformed after curtailing the program for creating our own patrol aircraft Nimrod MRA.4. "

The generals have repeatedly stated that "the actual elimination of anti-submarine aviation has the most negative effect on the combat stability of the British naval strategic nuclear forces."

However, the price announced by the Americans was burdensome for the British budget: for the 9 patrol planes, the partners requested £ 2 billion.

Help "WG": “The Boeing P-8A Poseidon is an American multi-purpose maritime aircraft designed to patrol the sea and detect submarines. The fuselage from Boeing-737-800, wings from Boeing-737-900, in service with the 2013 year. Crew nine people: two pilots and seven operators, combat radius - 3700 kilometers. It is in service with the US Navy and India, eight planes ordered Australia. "

        There avionics are outdated, and the price doubled.
        And this:
        reports the Russian newspaper with reference to the bmpd blog.
        I do not like. WG - a body of the Government of the Russian Federation. What are they, like pendosy - take news from LJ and twitter? belay
        As the late Viktor Stepanovich said, the Government is not a body where only language can do it.

        I only partially agree with Kapitsa - the leaders of the militants are educated people with cockroaches in their heads, but the militants themselves most often have no education, although the Taliban was positioned as a student movement, so the issue of education is controversial.

      Well - the people dawdled about the news about saving the budget and that we couldn’t get new airplanes shaved .... And weakly, just like that, to quarrel about this -
      The Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Company (SCAC) has agreed to return four Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) aircraft from Indonesia and Laos, ATO.ru told SCAC. We are talking about three aircraft transferred to the Indonesian airline Sky Aviation (registration numbers PK-ECL, PK-ECM, PK-ECN, serial - 95022, 95027, 95031), and one received by the Lao carrier Lao Central (RDPL-34195, 95026) ... Now all four aircraft are undergoing restoration work.
      wassat Come on ! Go ahead! To laugh at, agreed "reluctance? And also on this topic-
      In total, 12 Russian aircraft appeared in the Sky Aviation order. Lao Central initially ordered three SSJ 100. Due to the fact that the other two aircraft did not have time to be delivered, it was decided to transfer them to the special flight service "Russia", which is flying in the interests of top officials of the state. Meanwhile, at the end of 2014, the Lao carrier announced that it plans to resume operations in mid-2015. His plans also included an increase in the SSJ 100 fleet to four sides. The SCAC also confirmed that such negotiations are underway.
      Like reluctant to neigh on the topic of what might not be sent to Laos — to return everything all at once, and immediately send to the government detachment? Or maybe someone will remember how Sergeyev still wanted to get an anti-submarine aircraft on the basis of Tu-204/214, almost exactly when Yankees P-8 were going to receive?

          at. A complete bulkhead every five years is a normal routine, and not pure neighing.

          On December 18, 2013, the third Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft was handed over to the Indonesian airline Sky Aviation.
          Sukhoi Superjet 100 with a serial number of 95031 flew from Moscow to the location of the airline Sky Aviation in the capital of Indonesia - Jakarta.
          So how? Is it still a routine "? Or is it all the same to neigh? Or will you fine-tune yours" every five years "?

    arrogant Saxons can actually be naked, without cover. since their Yankees friends will offer to buy these letahs kahlam, they ask for summer weapons and have already collected loot from their citizens-kahlov to buy ... one wheel ... by entom Letaku. Alas, they don’t have more, since their rulers themselves need to finance their “pockets”. They would have driven submarines from other states, and would have invaded the steppe forests = mountains, ruins, urines.

    Heh heh heh ... the Island Empire has a triple zrada:
    First, the limes were cut into their warm lamp "Nimrods" - and right after the modernization. belay
    Second, they abandoned the American Poseidons.
    And thirdly, not even a European, but a Japanese basic patrol aircraft is considered as the main contender for the role of Nimrod's replacement.

    So it is so, but the formation of the Anglo-Saxons did not allow them to show humanism and love for nature, it created first al-Qaeda, then the igil, and if there is no Air Force, special forces, and others, then the Majahideen instilled another education through the Sharia. So ... good must be strong. As Al Capone said "with a kind word and a pistol, you can achieve more than just a kind word" and Churchill's quote "A significant predominance in artillery, a very weighty argument for peace negotiations."

    When will they finally cut their last four Trident submarines? I would applaud this spectacle. It seems like there are no new ones yet? And so, recently they have already attracted allied PLO aircraft to search for our submarine in the North Sea. It seems they were French and .. Canadians. But nothing was found that time.

      On the contrary, this year the alleged modernization of nuclear forces was announced (at first they wanted to build 4 new SSBNs, now, the EMNIP, they reduced their number to 3). The final decision will be made in 2016. But now, conservatives and Labor have traditionally clashed on this issue.

    No need to distort the Russian language, or are you trying to humor in "Albanian" here?
    Then I can say that you made a mistake on the site.

    The idea is good to place special aircraft on the basis of civilian vehicles. And you can call the pilots from the citizen and spare parts are the same and the resource is long.
