London has postponed the purchase of American patrol aircraft

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        There avionics are outdated, and the price doubled.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.

      On its basis, the Boeing P-8A Poseidon created. The design of the aircraft is based on the fuselage of the Boeing 737-800 and the wings of the Boeing 737-900.

      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 -
      Sukhoi Civil Aircraft (GSS) has agreed to return four Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ 100) planes from Indonesia and Laos, ATO.ru told the GSS. We are talking about three sides transferred to the Indonesian airline Sky Aviation (registration numbers PK-ECL, PK-ECM, PK-ECN, factory numbers 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! Laughter over, agreed "reluctance? Well, and more on this subject-
      In total, 12 Russian aircraft were featured in the Sky Aviation order. Lao Central initially ordered three SSJ 100s. Due to the fact that they did not manage to deliver the other two sides, they decided to transfer them to the special flight unit "Russia", which performs flights in the interests of the first persons 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 fact that such negotiations are ongoing, was confirmed in the SCA.
      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?

        missing. By the way, auto giants very often return huge lots just to eliminate the marriage

          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? Still, a routine? Or is it all the same neighing ?? Or do you have your own, every five years?

By the way - what about the promised joint production in China ??? Well, against the background of an already signed contract between China and Boeing for the supply of various types of 380 airplanes, including competitors of the Super Budget!

    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:
    Firstly, limes cut their warm tube Nimrods - and immediately after the modernization. belay
    Secondly, they abandoned the American Poseidons.
    And thirdly, the main base contender for the role of Nimrod’s successor is not even the European, but the Japanese base patrol aircraft.

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

    And when, finally, they cut their last four submarines with the Tridents? I would applaud this sight. It seems like new ones are not supposed 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 at 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.

    Do not distort the Russian language like that, or are you trying to humor in the "Albanian" language?

    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.
