US Navy - discussione ufficiale


Recommended Posts

Beh, i Greyhound attualmente non fanno i tanker: il ruolo lo ricoprono ili F-18E con pod buddy-buddy.

In futuro è previsto però un kit per gli Osprey, ma al momento sembra solo per i Marines, mentre la US Navy sta a guardare.

per fare queste cose non si usano più gli aerei, ma i missili anti-nave

Posto qui un vecchio, ma interessante, articolo apparso sul mensile 'Proceedings' dell'USNI nel lontano 2006. L'autore, lo storico Norman Polmar, descrive lo sviluppo del missile balistico navale

si ma io continuo a non capire... se usiamo dei catorci come falsi bersagli, non funziona perchè vengono riconosciuti come tali, se usiamo dei catorici come ASM, comunque non ha senso, perchè è molto

Sul piano puramente teorico puoi metterci anche dei kamikaze a bordo dei Mig...

Ha senso?

E' fattibile, non ho detto che sarebbe una soluzione ottimale, è questo il punto.

Vogliamo discutere del sesso degli angeli?

Il punto è che si adottano soluzioni sensate e la Cina di oggi non è il Giappone del 1945.

Può costruire molti più missili antinave di quanti aerei ha a disposizione, più veloci e più difficili da individuare e una volta individuati più difficili da colpire.

US Naval Aviation ... cannibalizzazione galoppante ...

The US Navy’s commander of Naval Air Forces is sending a dire warning to Congress this week over the rampant cannibalisation of its fighter fleet could threaten the service’s ability to go to war.
In order to get its fighter squadrons to carriers, the navy is transferring hundreds of parts from its non-deployed squadrons, decreasing those aircraft’s ability to respond to the call of duty if needed.

Three U.S. carrier strike groups will drill together – in the first tri-carrier operations in a decade off the Korean peninsula in the Sea of Japan, several sources confirmed to USNI News on Wednesday.
USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76), USS Nimitz (CVN-68) and USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), along with their escorts and air wings, are set to meet off the coast of Korea for four days of exercises later this week.

Huntington Ingalls Industries announced today that its Newport News Shipbuilding division has completed the inactivation of the aircraft carrier Enterprise (CVN 65).
As part of the complex process that began in 2013, more than 1,000 shipbuilders defueled Enterprise’s eight nuclear reactors, inactivated its propulsion systems and prepared its hull for final tow.
Newport News Shipbuilding completed the inactivation base work in December 2017, and the government contracting office review and certification of the paperwork has just been completed.
The ship will remain at Newport News to complete post-inactivation work to prepare the ship for storage in the Hampton Roads area until a disposal plan is determined by the U.S. Navy.

La CVN 65 e' LA portaerei per eccellenza.

 

E' la piu grande

E' unica della sua classe e la prima nucleare.

E' la piu' longeva nave della marina (si lo so, il primo e' un veliero.....)

 

e poi........ E' quella di top gun!!!!

Da profano dico che sarebbe un peccato venisse demolita. Chissa se ne faranno un museo e la conserveranno.

Sarebbe auspicabile ...

 

Credo sarebbe la prima volta per un vascello di superficie a propulsione nucleare ... ma, temo, non sarà possibile ...

Un conto molto salato da pagare ... :pianto:

Quote

Scrapping the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier could cost the Navy as much as $1.5 billion and take more than a decade to complete, according to the Government Accountability Office.
But the final price tag and the future timetable for dismantling the decommissioned Enterprise ultimately will depend on whether the Navy can contract with a private shipyard to finish the job or make its Puget Sound Naval Shipyard do the work.
