Off the coast of Singapore, the American frigate failed

62
The press service of the Pacific Command of the US Navy issued a report that due to technical problems encountered in the port of Singapore, a coastal frigate failed Fort Worth LCS-3 like "Freedom". TASS, referring to the representative of the press service of the US Navy, Captain-Lieutenant Matthew Knight, reports that, according to preliminary data, the reason for the failure of the frigate is due to engine problems.


The report says that the American frigate left the home port in California in November 2014 of the year. During this time, he managed to take part in numerous joint maneuvers with the ships of the naval forces of such states as India, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.

It is noteworthy that this is already the second time that a US frigate breaks down in the past month and a half. So, in the middle of December, the newest coastal frigate failed Milwaukee LCS 5.

Off the coast of Singapore, the American frigate failed


He was launched in December 2014 of the year. The frigate Milwaukee during the transition from Halifax to San Diego experienced a complete loss of thrust, after which it was towed to a repair dock at the base of Little Creek (Virginia).

      Yes, this is understandable, let the entire fleet of non-friends fail! wassat I don’t understand anything else. India conducts numerous exercises with mattresses.? and we are delivering equipment to them, we promised to supply the new generation t-50, this is such a tactic of replanting another country with the military equipment of its production, if in which case cut off the supply of components or a way to attract investment for the benefit of our military-industrial complex ??? But then again, where are the guarantees that the Indians will not resell the same T-50 mattresses? or what other technology ?? what

      Such an impression that, like last time, metal crumbs were again found in the engine oil ... The frigate is novye-2014, the engine life is zero, and then there is a loss of engine thrust (!!!). Here our "black box" -the recorder was criticized for mechanical breakdowns of microcircuits during the fall, and then the NEW frigate stood up, turned into a barge, practically into a galley, the power plant stood up. You should see you have to set sail masts, or oars.

    And without any gloating - purely pragmatism.

    They are really sick of it! They wander around the world, shake everyone's rights, decide who is right and who is not right - the results of which we see.

    In Libya, after the American "opinion", there is virtually no government at all, a mess in Egypt, Tunisia, SYRIA ..... - you get tired of listing! (we don't remember about Afghanistan and Iraq at all - this is already like the norm - as if the Americans had always been there)

    So if they have one boat broke down - without any gloating - the less ships they have, the really better.

      USS Fort Worth (LCS 3) is already six dozen in combat. In the first 90 days, he spent 53 days at sea, 11 days more than planned and 17 days more than his predecessor, the head warship of the coastal zone of this type, USS Freedom (LCS 1). This was achieved due to the rejection of the limited and postponement of preventive repairs. Over the past time, there were 39 different faults at the USS Fort Worth (of which not a single fault of the highest severity category) - 44 at the USS Freddom.

      USS Fort Worth troubleshooting took 396 man-hours and one stop. At USS Freedom - 4200 hours and four stops.

        Hello, the rake of the Soviet Navy. We, too, pomnitsa, considered repair something harmful and undermining the performance of the fleet. And by all imaginable and inconceivable ways increased the overhaul intervals (yes everything is fine, and so it will come down, wait for the next repair) and reduced repair time. And then they decorated it with deadlines, but ships that were already killed in the trash, on the shores of the bays at the bases.

    I didn’t understand something. He has that, only one main mover. In our ship, back in the early 80s there was one main and two movers from the TU-115 (second turbines). Plus more omitted rotating columns (steering column). This is with a length of 110 meters and buildings of the late 60s. Horror. I hope we have a lot better.
