Aboard the British atomic missile submarine Vigilant

69
Infrequent and fresh photo report from the board of the British nuclear-powered missile submarine S 30 Vigilant - the third ship in the series of four units of the Vanguad type. Boats of this type, equipped with Trident II ballistic missiles, are now the only component of the UK strategic nuclear forces.


A series of photographs taken aboard the British nuclear submarine HMS Vigilant; Majesty's Naval Base naval base; Scotland; January 2016 year

        You can’t talk like that about the countries of advanced democracy, tolerance, different freedoms there, etc. wink lol
        If a man and a man can cohabit, then why should not women serve in the navy? And you can relieve stress during hiking. This is with us, so that dkrny thoughts do not enter the head, then they will order to do something. And there "!

          Yes, and the voltage in the campaigns can be relieved.

          The woman there is not a woman, but a comrade and brother. Crawling eyes, and not to mention anything else, can cause accusations of sexism and a crash from a submarine, and well, if not through a torpedo tube or missile silo.
          But it’s interesting - Americans seem to have a certain percentage of blacks who need to be kept in the company, otherwise they will be accused of oppressing and violating the rights of historically hurt minorities. They have already reached the Oscars, but is there such a thing in the Navy and the Air Force?
          In the future, there will probably be something similar - 30% of the crew should be female brothers, 30% - brothers of an indefinite gender, 30% - brothers-migrants, etc.

            The Angles have even stronger naval traditions than the Franks, for example, but they also follow. Caste. traditions and all that. Any relief is only from the pressure of the authorities. But even at the household level, misunderstanding and perplexity. The Negro on pl in England is the same nonsense as we have almost, the traditions are naval - they are like that.

      And tell us which minority will be in Moscow in 2040.
      And the British, in their Armed Forces, in different types of troops, have many people of different nationalities and religions, just as it was in the SA (Soviet Army) and, now, in the Russian army. Here, only, in Britain there are no women's cadet corps or schools, as in Russia (http://obrmos.ru/go/go_kad/go_kad_9_3_3.html). And, as Comrade Sukhov said: "A woman - she is also a man!" Forgot to ask. Do not women serve in the Russian Armed Forces? In the Russian Armed Forces do not serve "gays" who hide their true "I"?
      Why contempt for women? Your mom is a woman too! Or you were not born, but you fell from the moon? Have you seen the old film "Alexander Nevsky"? And the hussar girl Nadezhda Andreevna Durova, and the women pilots on Po-2 (U-2), and Soviet tankers and snipers during the Second World War? Don't you know? I feel sorry for you.

        You are absolutely right, Hrad. Their feat is immortal, and heroism is immense. But this should be, nevertheless, an exception, a cost of wartime. Well, no place for a woman in a bloody massacre! I say this not because of a contemptuous attitude towards a woman, it is the instinct of any NORMAL man to protect a woman from danger.

        No contemptuous attitude! Just a surprise. The sailors of the Grand Fleet have always suffered from traditions and superstitions. and they tried to prevent women on the ship when they went to sea. And here in the most elite crews of women. It is surprising that the British began to move away from the elite traditions.

      Perhaps ..., perhaps .... And so far, not a single submarine in peace, at least, time Her Majesty's fleet has not lost. Is the hint clear? That is, the "unfading" phrase - "she drowned ..." was not pronounced by the British prime minister (and not by the queen). And thinking, in fact, as a professional submariner who has served on boats for 15 years, simply, excuse me, "deep" conclusions from a selection of photographs about the life of submariners ... are ugly, sorry. The British, by the way, seemed to be one of the first (if not the first) to offer their help when our "Kursk" "suddenly drowned." Why explain to you, apparently it's useless .... Look yourself "saliva with joy" do not choke ... if your "predictions" suddenly come true.

      The catch in the first photos of the base with new boats like Astute. And the photo story later on is about the Vigilant boat - the third in a series of four-unit ship of the Vanguad type, which was put into service in 1996. So it turns out that it’s not new anymore and it’s possible to show something. Well, by the type of equipment, it is close to our projects of the late 80 - 90 years. I myself at RTMK in the winter of the 96th in the autonomous region, just near shaving in the Atlantic, I was taking out my military service (we also gave the sailor with appendicitis to them - to a helicopter, and so we only sailed for two months in the seas, and he already at home with gifts from Diana - their princesses, sat).

    To be honest, I was surprised by the cleanliness and order in the premises, even the comfort! I remember also struck by the order in the brigade of minesweepers of the GDR in 1983 in Stralsund. All. who served in our fleet can confirm that unfortunately there is no such cleanliness and order on our nuclear submarines (except for Sharks and new projects). and the habitability is bad - "service in the submarine fleet is difficult, but the Russians have managed to make it unbearable"! However, it is "ours", and therefore "does not smell"! And so. if outwardly, then also modestly, ascetic and economical - a good solid "three"! But the Americans for Trident 2 - five with a minus !? Painfully good rocket turned out at the foe! It is what it is!

      All. who served in our fleet can confirm that unfortunately there is no such cleanliness and order on our nuclear submarines (except for Sharks and new projects). yes, and with habitability is bad - "service in the submarine fleet is difficult, but the Russians managed to make it unbearable"! However, this is "ours", and therefore "does not smell"! And so. if outwardly, then also modestly, ascetic and economical - a good solid "three"! But the Americans for Trident 2 - five with a minus !? Painfully good rocket turned out at the foe! It is what it is!

      Here I read .. I am surprised .. Well, okay, the order on the boat .., it depends on the cap., But rather the start-up. But where about the rocket? Well, where do such nonsense come from ... I don’t understand? Do you know her performance characteristics? Or maybe you know the performance characteristics of the Sineva / Liner? Maces? ..? Based on what such statements then?

    Interestingly, everything is arranged. About 30 years ago, for such pictures, the author would have been given "For Military Merit" or the Red Star, but now, eh ... they looked and forgot.

    Dvina71! I hasten to inform you that I have the most accurate information about the performance characteristics of the Soviet and Russian BRs - my uncle was deputy gen. constructor price Miass. So what do they say "firsthand"? And the failures of most of Sineva's launches are a vivid confirmation of my innocence, to my deep regret. By education, I am a military shipbuilder (korfak, VVMIOLU), and therefore I can objectively and professionally judge the habitability, conditions of service, the layout of weapons and those means on the ship (boat). I agree. that much depends on the exactingness of the commander (first mate), but there are engineering (design) solutions, when combat effectiveness (the number of weapons and vehicles) is at the forefront, and only then the living conditions and functioning of the crew. Notice. English the boat is about thirty years old. and the condition of the interior is quite satisfactory. I would like to see the same condition at 675,671 or even at 949 And after 30 years of service (!) of the boat (at least 7 - 10 BS)? As for the women on the boat, in Norway there are even 2 women - submarine commanders (although there are 6-10 boats, no more)! We cannot understand NATO with our minds. and their women are better not

    Maybe I'm wrong, but there are no women in the Russian Navy (in the crews of ships). I am not a sailor at all and, perhaps, I am mistaken, but they have no place in men's collectives who spend six months in autonomous units. I recall the gorgeous Soviet film "The Third Dimension", where the boat commander explained his point of view on this matter in an accessible way. By the way, Yegorova is incomparable in her role! ... In my opinion, the Russian Navy is the most incapable of the Navy in the world. Do not believe me, read Pokrovsky's "Shoot!"
