Australia will build patrol boats for 12 island states at its own expense

31
The Australian government has signed a contract with Austal Ships Pty Ltd, a domestic company, to build 19-ti patrol boats for 12-ti Pacific island states, the blog reports bmpd with reference to the press service of the enterprise.




According to the report, the contract worth 280 million Australian dollars, concluded under the program “Pacific Patrol Boat Replacement” (PPBR), involves the construction of boats “for the states of: Papua New Guinea, Tonga, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Samoa, Vanuatu, Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, Republic of the Marshall Islands and the Cook Islands. ”

The program was approved by the Australian Government in the middle of 2014.

“Australia will build at its own expense new patrol boats, which should replace Pacific Forum-type patrol boats (total displacement 162 t, length 31,5 m) built by Australian shipbuilders for these same 12 island states from 1987 to 1997 years, and now approaching The expiration of the 25-year service life. All expenses, including construction, personnel training and logistics and repair of boats throughout their life cycle in 30 years, will be fully covered from the Australian budget, ”the company said.

Boats will be built on their own project Austal Ships. According to the developers, they "will have steel hulls, their length will be 39,5 m, width - 8 m, draft - 2,5 m". The maximum speed of boats will be 20 knots, cruising range - up to 3 thousand miles, capacity - 23 people. Regularly for them only machine-gun armament is provided.

            What's with the Skopions. project 12300?

            So the project was drafted at the stage of construction of the first one in Rybinsk. First Zelenodoltsy with "Buyans", by the way I wrote
            it was originally designed for operation in the Volga delta and taking into account the depths in the Caspian Sea in particular, and in TK the requirement was to go through shallow depths along the entire navigable stretch of the Volga and the Caspian without decreasing the set parameters of seaworthiness, hence the choice of jet propellers.
            Now, taking into account that trouble with the gas turbine engine, the Nikolaev campaign was no longer a tenant of 12300 and there appeared Karakurt with 22800 diesel engines from Almaz. No one canceled the competitive struggle, and now they pushed the Zelenodolsk people to the campaign by scattering an order for the first three from Pela to the Sea. request Here is what Pela, with rhythmic deliveries of equipment installed, the order will be fulfilled on time, or in a timely manner, then the state of affairs in Crimea on the "Sea" request ... however, it’s alarming, but let’s hope that they will do so. Something like this is seen.

              And what, perhaps, there are projects of catamarans, trikatamarans. With a displacement of more than 300 to 800 tons, with a low draft of up to 2,5 m. By stealth technology, fashionable. With a good set of weapons?
              According to the past, in Uralsk a patrol ship launched into the water created a lot of problems, I had to drag it across the city to lower it to the river. Here and spring, the Urals are full of water.
              It is time to build a normal shipyard in Aktau or Atyrau and bring parts from Uralsk.

                Yes, your slip in the Urals isn’t designed for long-length ones at all! I thought they would drown if, as the factory workers said in the video, to build under 600 tons - the slip should be redone for the descent aboard, like everyone on the Volga and not only lowered, but actually wrote about it already.

                There may be pictures, but in practice in our latitudes ... I don’t presume to judge, here we have to ask someone from the "Krylovites", well, who at least drove the models in the experimental pool. They will give a qualified certificate.

                  So I say yes, what are there 600 tons, a desire, but obviously they want money. There are no opportunities.
                  The northern part of the water area generally freezes in winter. Hydrographists seize all buoys and landmarks before spring.
                  So I think that 6 rocket artillery boats up to 300-500 tons are needed. Hovercraft. With whom to fight at all. smile
                  And so, aviation is not bad, everything overlaps.
                  By the way, if the Iranians put the vessel on the bank, they drop it. Pull it out expensively. And then they make it.
                  And the marines ... Is it something, no means of landing, and on whom? It was easier to organize an airmobile brigade and coastal defense forces.

                  Catamarans and trimarans are unstable weapon platforms. The jerky pitching of multihulls is a rather unpleasant phenomenon. Moreover, under certain conditions, a tilting moment occurs.
                  Therefore, all multihulls have the same advantages due to the small displacement and the ability to carry greater windage at small roll angles and the same drawback, which is to reduce stability when the roll increases to a certain angle, which leads to the risk of tipping over. In the stability of multihull vessels, displacement plays the same important role as conventional ships. The opposite opinion on this subject is incorrect.
                  Something like that. Moreover, the problems of capsizing for sailing and motor multihulls are almost the same.

      I do not believe in the lack of information ...

      The Pacific Islands Forum is Australia, Vanuatu, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, New Zealand, Niue, Cook Islands, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, Federated States of Micronesia and Fiji. Since 2006, the overseas territories of France, New Caledonia and French Polynesia, have become associate members of the FTF.

      The most economically prosperous member states of the Forum, as well as the largest in terms of population, are Australia and New Zealand.

      Therefore, these two states are vital donors to other economies in Oceania for developing economies and markets for their products (for example, a trade agreement between Fiji and Australia on the export of textile products). Besides, Australia and New Zealand are the guarantors of stability and security in the region, in particular, they have the right to introduce their troops into the territory of other member states to maintain order / stabilization in the PF countries (The mandate was given after the signing by the heads of state of the Biketawa Declaration at the 31st Summit of the Pacific Islands Forum in Kiribati in October 2000).

      Regularly, only machine gun weapons are provided for them.

      And for what they are building - so drive the local island pirates by canoe ..

      How be it’s clear that these are not destroyers — to shoot at sparrows?

      And there is a country in that region that is ready to put up huge naval forces in which case - the USA. The USA, Great Britain, and therefore Australia, have learned lessons from the Japanese - the Filipino and Malay operations of the Japanese. So there’s nothing to laugh here, the guys are doing their job efficiently ..

        Well, if pirates on canoes, with mounted Japanese engines, then the declared 20 knots will not be enough.

          At least it’s not for three hundred Baku people to buy this.
          The Atyrau Oblast Department of Internal Affairs purchased from the Italian company FBdesign (owned by the famous Italian racer and design engineer Fabio Buzzi) a high-speed patrol boat FS-38 Stab in the most complete - full option - configuration costing about $ 1,3 million.

            what Is this a speedboat for the sea ?? Is the Caspian a lake like? Not - in a short one and not more than 1 point, I quite believe to myself that it will catch up with any local canoe, even with Japanese motors, but all one will jump even on a low wave. And in the photo it is interesting to see the solution to get the speed - a bullet, a comb of redans in 5 pieces - exactly the racer did. How is he on the wave? Again - according to the performance characteristics, what autonomy is planned, well, exactly as a patrol? Is there a depreciation of jobs there? If yes - then I believe that the money is worth. Again, carbon probably? But somehow our "Mongoose" in cost - efficiency will be more important, but it is also more.

              So we already figured it out, they didn’t put it bad. They also built a super house for their loved ones.
              Is it easier to use the same canoes to use confiscated canoes, the law? In the same Texas, seized cars and boats with planes are sold through an auction, they keep something for themselves, but this is rare, the equipment is spotlighted.
              And why not on the canoes, engines, satellite navigation, even radar. laughing
