🔥⚔️🇨🇳 [HILO - ARMADA CHINA]

1) La Armada China superará a la #USNavy durante la próxima década. "China will rule the waves", dicen. Al menos así es para muchos aficionados, pero también profesionales y estudiosos de la guerra naval... Image
2) Por poner en perspectiva este crecimiento, la PLAN botó entre 2016 y 2018 unas 400.000 toneladas, aproximadamente el doble que los #EEUU. Se trata de una cifra impresionante y seguramente sin parangón en tiempos de paz. ImageImageImageImage
3) Hablamos de una fuerza compuesta por unos 350 buques de entidad y que, sumando todas las clases, supera de largo las 600 unidades, frente a los entre 290 y 300 buques de guerra que tienen en servicio los estadounidenses. Buques cada vez más grandes y poderosos, por cierto. Image

[MINI-HILO]

1) La #USNavy está buscando la forma de pasar de los alrededor de 320 buques de guerra de que dispone en la actualidad, a una horquilla de entre 480 y 534 buques en la década de 2030.
2) No sería la primera vez que la US Navy alcanza o supera cifras semejantes. De hecho, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial el número de buques alistado fue al menos un orden de magnitud superior.
3) Por supuesto, en tiempos de Ronald Reagan, fue sonado el plan "600-ship Navy". Esta, junto a la SDI y a otras iniciativas, permitió tensar la cuerda soviética hasta romperla.

New Intelligence: #Chinese Copy Of #USNavy’s Unmanned Sea Hunter USV

A picture on Chinese social media sheds light on a Chinese project to develop a drone-ship remarkably simila to the US Navy’s Sea Hunter trimaran

The Chinese copy machine never rests...
navalnews.com/naval-news/202…
The uncrewed Sea Hunter has been designed under the Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program. The uncrewed surface vessel’s (USV) primary mission is to track quiet diesel electric submarines. It is designed to ‘lock on’ to a submarine and trail it continuously.
Compared to the Sea Hunter, the Chinese vessel is slightly longer (based on measurements in satellite images) and wider. So it may have a higher displacement. It is narrower overall however due to the closer placed trimaran outriggers.

The #USNavy Has Drifted Badly Off Course

Over the last 4 years, the Navy’s civilian leaders failed to define a compelling vision for the Navy’s future, reform a broken ship design & acquisition system, or build a diverse, high-performing leadership team.
defenseone.com/ideas/2020/09/…
The last three major surface warship programs have been disasters.

The construction of the USS Ford aircraft carrier has been plagued with delays, cost overruns, and technology failures.
The hyper-expensive Zumwalt-class destroyer program was cancelled after construction of three prototypes, not the 30 originally planned, because the costly ships serve no clear naval purpose.

#USNavy Mulling Extending Service Lives of Nimitz-class Carriers

The Navy is considering an extension of the service lives of the first few aircraft carriers in the Nimitz-class.

Specifically, the Navy is evaluating the timeline for USS Nimitz (CVN-68)
news.usni.org/2020/09/17/nav…
While the Navy has yet to present its legally-mandated 30-year shipbuilding outlook for FY 2021 to Congress, the FY 2020 blueprint showed the carrier inventory dropping from 11 carriers in 2024 to 10 in 2025, around the time Nimitz is slated to retire.
The Nimitz-class carriers are currently projected to have a 50 to 55-year service life despite the design intending the carriers to be in service for 30 years, Downey said.

The #USNavy today awarded six companies contracts to Start Work on Large Unmanned Surface Vehicle

The first steps to build an Unmanned Surface fleet that'll work together with manned vessels under the new concept of "distributed lethality".

📢📢📢 #Australia invertirá 15 millones de euros en un proyecto pionero de guerra de minas basado en buques autónomos. Esto permitirá el desminado con un riesgo mínimo y a una velocidad sin precedentes. Image
2) El proyecto forma parte de una nueva asociación entre el Ministerio de Defensa aussie, el Australia’s Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence Cooperative Research Centre (TAS DCRC) y Thales Australia. Se une así por ejemplo al #ReinoUnido, que hace poco lanzó su propio programa. Image

🔴🔴🔴 1) En las últimas semanas las Fuerzas Armadas de 🇨🇳#China han probado una curiosa solución: han utilizado buques civiles semisumergibles como portahelicópteros, como se ve en la siguiente imagen: Image
2) A priori podría pensarse que es una forma de estudiar alternativas baratas a los Expeditionary Sea Bases de la #USNavy como el USS Lewis B. Puller (ESB-3) y similares. Image
3) Sin embargo, en este caso hay particularidades, pues lejos de pretender operar a miles y miles de kilómetros de sus costas, el sistema está pensado para hacerlo en sus aguas aledañas y bajo la cobertura aérea de la PLANAF. Image

Ok, I am getting lots of great questions about the future #Submarine illustration in this article.

So here are some notes. Thread

forbes.com/sites/hisutton…
It's not specifically #USNavy, but is intended to be relevant. It does have a USN style in some respects. I think that the US Navy's SSN(X) will incorporate many things discussed in the article, but might look a bit more conventional
The layout is unconventional to challenge the assumed layout of current boats. The stern rudder/sail is plausible, and might have some advantages (now that sails are mostly about masts which are non-penetrating). But it has disadvantages also.

1. I previously analyzed the Super Hornets on USS Eisenhower #CVN69 in the Arabian sea twice (April 2nd and June 12th).
Here I do the same on USS Ronald Reagan #CVN76 on July 3rd passing San Bernardino strait and USS Nimitz #CVN68 on July 6th in the south China sea.
2. The pictures are less visible than IKE's. But on USS Ronald Reagan, I can see out of 33
3 Growlers
1 five wet tanker
7 Super Hornets armed with 1 Sidewinder
No visible AMRAAM or Maverick. 2
3. USS Nimitz #CVN68 on July 6th in the south China sea has at least 11 Rhinos armed with 1 Sidewinder including one with 2 Sidewinders.

No. US #AircraftCarriers movement is NOT at your pleasure. The Nimitz and Ronald Reagan each have a air group of 90 combat a/c. Both carriers have 24 SAMs and and CIWS systems but they will be defended against missile attacks by their escort screen

1/n
Each Carrier Strike Group has 2 Ticenderoga class cruisers with 122 SAMs (Surface to Air missiles) each. Each CSG has a destroyer squadron of 5 destroyers. Each destroyer carries at least 60 SAMs. That makes it 300 SAMs

Thats 24 + 122 + 300 = 446 SAMs in each CSG

2/n
You will have to launch 100's of missiles against each carrier to have any chance of them getting through the SAM screen. You simply don't have enough missiles.

But lets say you are lucky and even manage to hit 01 carrier. You won't be able to sink it. The other vessels
