Military Review

The US Navy has postponed the adoption of the newest aircraft carrier because of the problems identified during its operation.

77
American Command fleet postponed the adoption of the latest aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78), due to problems arising from take-off and landing of deck aircraft, as well as due to malfunctions "in the ship’s self-defense and weapons delivery systems," the director’s report says US Department of Defense Michael Gilmore’s operational testing.




“If these problems are not resolved, they will significantly limit the ability of CVN-78 to conduct combat operations,” the report says. RIA News.

According to Gilmore, "the aircraft carrier landing system will have to be changed."

The next attempt to transfer the aircraft carrier to the naval forces should take place early next year.

The agency’s reference: “The USS Gerald R. Ford aircraft carrier, worth about 13 billion dollars, is considered the most expensive warship in the world. Its construction began in the 2009 year, by September 2014, the ship was supposed to be ready. Subsequently, this period was postponed to 2016 year. "

      In general, they and the fleet got into trouble. The railgun, which was planned to be installed on the DDG1000 when launching the projectile, provided power to the most important ship systems as if with a mini-zilch effect. It is curious that on our analogue this effect is not

          Not everything is so simple, everyone has problems putting into operation the latest systems, especially the latest ships, and for this various tests are carried out, and we and they have acceptance and verification of technical characteristics, remember what problems were when accepting our first nuclear submarines, and here is the ship:

          Displacement approx. 98 425 t full
          The length is 337 m
          Water line width 41 m
          78 m the largest
          Engines 2 Bechtel A1B nuclear reactors
          Mover 4
          Speed ​​Over 30 knots maximum
          Cruising range Unlimited
          Autonomy of swimming 100 days for provisions,
          30 days for aviation fuel,
          20 - 25 years in the reactor core
          Crew 4,660 people l / s

          Finish, solve problems.

        And what is the actual news? In our country, as in all other fleets of the world, when the State Commission receives from the factory to the fleet, the whole lists of deficiencies are revealed on new ships. And amers have a WHOLE new Aircraft Carrier-a huge, complex ship! No wonder there are flaws. It’s time for us ourselves to engage in staging combat duty of similar aircraft-bearing nuclear power engineers. And not thirteen nonsense.

        They are in trouble now. And with the fleet, and with the army, they have not flown into space for a long time. Previously, they were riveting aircraft carriers like lawn mowers, they have vast experience, but now it's already problematic to pass one. Recall the sad unfinished F-35. It is noticeable that the technological superiority of the USA is coming to an end, America is blown away.

Where are we, for example, there is practically nothing to put against them at the moment request Americans will bring him to condition, they have the necessary experience, infrastructure and finances for this.

          The range of carrier-based aviation is 500 km., So in the far sea zone, there’s no sense in them, is it possible to bomb Aboriginal people on banana islands. But Russia is not stupid Arabs, and the states know that if in the event of a conflict, the aircraft carrier approaches the coast of Russia at a range of carrier-based aircraft, it will immediately be sent to the bottom. They will bring it to condition for a very long time, you can clearly see how the technological base itself begins to crumble in the states.

            We do not have nuclear-powered aircraft carriers right now, which is why our media has an idiotic opinion that Americans are stupid, throwing billions of dollars into ocean-free target barges for our caliber yachts.
            At the same time, R&D is in full swing and the infrastructure is being built at our shipyards for the construction of similar ships. Indeed, in the Russian Navy, unlike the layman, they perfectly understand that an atomic carrier is a pass to the world's oceans. Where are the world cargo transportation for colossal sums of money in peacetime, but you should not talk about the military. Something like that.

              F / A-18E combat radius: 726 km. Aiming range of AWACS aircraft - 400km. The laws of physics.
              500 km range of carrier-based aviation is not such a mistake.

      This aircraft carrier is the leading one in the series, and it is not surprising that problems emerged. With us, too, the lead ships and submarines are not going smoothly, for the sake of justice I must say.
      Another question is whether mattresses will be able to eliminate the problem, or whether this problem is "inoperable." And if the problem turns out to be unsolvable, then it will be transferred to all ships of this series, significantly reducing the capabilities of new aircraft carriers.

        Remembered. There were problems with the deck on the Vikramaditya. According to the renovation project, the coating had to be one. However, the Indian side insisted that the coating be of Western production. At Sevmash, they noticed that such a coating will fly off in pieces during flights. But the Indians stood their ground, claiming that the Russians did not always understand a lot about modern technology. Then ours insisted on signing documents that all responsibility for covering the deck rests with the Indian side and that all alterations will be carried out at Indian expense.
        "Vikramaditya" went out to sea. After the very first flights, the deck covering began to fly off in pieces, as predicted by the Sevmash. Ours immediately showed their Indian friends their signatures and reminded the bank details of Sevmash. India paid again. And the Russian deck covering serves well, although it is not a triumph of Western technologies.
        By the way, Russian asbestos protection on boilers also serves. But it was set eco-friendly Chinese brick. And also before the first exit to the sea

And even if it is solved, as you say by turning on the machine, believe me, even in this case it’s not a fact that after eliminating this problem, Some other sore will come out. Besides, you cannot buy time for any money, and solving and fixing problems and shortcomings needs more time than money. Although financing is undeniably important.

      One or two hits ??? I think this will be completely not enough. This is if only the P-1000 is driven in ... which is difficult. AUG will not allow our flagships to approach the distance of a massive salvo. And calibers for this will not work for a number of tactical reasons. In addition, network-centric air defense AUG in real life for calibers can be difficult to achieve. No one even tested on a stimulator! Russian Air Force attack aircraft and fighters will be effective in coastal waters; in the future, our naval formations risk becoming collective targets, and this is not a joke.
      We need aviation in the further marine zone. Moreover, its full range.

    Its construction began in the 2009 year, by September 2014 of the year the ship was to be ready. Subsequently, this period was postponed to 2016 year.
    I don’t know about you, but such a pace of construction shock me.
    For comparison: our head frigate 22356 was laid down by 01.02.2006 and today, 10 years later, it has not yet been delivered to the fleet. We hope that this will happen by November-December.
    But this is a frigate, and they have a huge modern aircraft carrier!

    Stop rejoicing. They built an aircraft carrier in 5 years, 98 tons. Berks spank like pies. Even breaking the penguin into it two or three more Kamaz money will bring to mind.
    And they will bring the aircraft carrier to mind. They have so many fantasies that even if they eat each in two experiences, they will still remain.

    They declare peace and stubbornly build offensive weapons. Not otherwise, they are going to export democracy again. Where to? Already almost all democratized.

    Huge money ditched.

    Amers are no strangers. Most of its huge military budget, which the United States is so fond of boasting about, goes to such developments, the second part to military bases scattered around the world. Well, God only knows how much of this is going to be cut.

    It is strange to read about how money was killed in the USA.
    They print them as much as desired and translate them into resources (objects, etc.). At the same time, inflationary loot is given to fools from other countries (including us).

    Don't talk nonsense. The United States cannot print money "as much as necessary." The laws of economics have not yet been canceled. Subscribing is another matter. Therefore, the value of the dollar is steadily decreasing. And they print just as much as around the world (and to us, including) they can sell their "securities", which causes the growth of the US debt.

    Judging by the jambs at the construction of Ford worked guys from our neighboring countries. laughing But seriously, we also need a couple of large aircraft carriers - for the Pacific Fleet. and one more (except Kuznetsov) to the Northern Fleet. Cover the Arctic. Otherwise, the "international community" has been screaming very loudly recently that the Arctic should belong to all mankind. And the ears are star-striped sticking out! wassat

      The so-called "international community" expresses exclusively the opinion of the Americans on the events taking place, not depending on whose flag this "public" appears.

    Again, they made an elephant out of a fly ... I understand propaganda and all of them, but why distort information?
    Well damn. There, all the problems are that the Navy test dates were postponed from November 2016 to the first half of 2017. The combat readiness of the ship according to plan 2021 and so far nothing threatens this. These tests are made in order to find problems. Or can someone name the first ship in the series that was no problem? According to this, the first ship has such terms, the construction of 2014 combat readiness 2021 - at this time all this is being worked out.

    Usually, if everything went awry at once, expect a big disaster. There will be no sense in this boat. laughing

    Yes stop it. When the entry of our frigates is shifted each time due to problems with the radar and anti-aircraft weapons, for some reason we do not think that once things went awry - wait for a big meal. We reassure ourselves that it’s okay, the process of mastering new technology is underway, problems will be solved, and then right away - wait for big trouble. A new ship, there are problems - they will solve it. With their experience building aircraft carriers ...

    all one money wasted, but not ours, but the Yankees, well, why ask these expensive floating pans, if now they can be destroyed without going to sea, for example with calibers ...

    And also "Caliber" can shoot, if necessary, the ISS and American bases on the Moon and Mars .... Damn, maybe enough where necessary and where not to poke "Caliber" ???
    Destroy without going to sea .... Or maybe destroy without shooting at all ?? ... Damn MATCH AT LEAST LEARN !!!!! am

    As far as I heard from the media, ours are going to use the railgun not as a weapon but solely for putting satellites into orbit.

    Why do we need a disc in orbit? Electronics will not survive either from the EM pulse or from the temperature ...

    Do you think they are going to give something to someone? Do not be a fool, get a mind at last. smile
    Your laws of economics are no longer valid in this world. Once again I write, they throw all inflationary money out of the territory of their country, in debt obligations, on democracy, arming other countries in exchange for resources.
    Where is the value of the dollar going down? Well, I saw that we had 30, became 65. It has definitely fallen. I’ll go to learn mathematics.

    And did anyone bother to inquire about what problem the whole fuss is about? Scrolling through the comments, I found such a question in one person. ONE! request
    And the thing here most likely concerns the catapults, which are electromagnetic and which are designed to replace standard steam
    Maybe their characteristics do not coincide, time may increase (after all, testing one on land and realizing iron on a specific ship is another), maybe peak loads during launches give some kind of malfunction on other equipment, maybe because of these or any other problems connected with catapults, the logistics of take-off and landing production was disrupted ... what
    There are plenty of options. That's probably the catch. And here the question is more likely just of a technical nature, rather than political or financial ... hi
