« Si je devais entrer [dans un conflit de haute intensité au cours duquel] j'aurais à réparer de nombreux navires [...] Je n'ai pas assez de cales sèches, et je n'ai pas assez de chantiers navals ».

Amiral Daryl Caudle
Commander, US Fleet Forces Command (#USFFC)
➡️ L'Amiral Daryl Caudle (commandant #USFFC) s'exprimait (defensenews.com/digital-show-d…) le 12 janvier 2022. Un Government Accountability Report d'août 2020 - comme d'autres - constatait les étalements dans le temps des arrêts techniques quand ils n'étaient pas repoussés.
➡️ L'Amiral Daryl Caudle (#USFFC) prend la responsabilité de sortir le sujet : dans une perspective correspondant aux choix stratégiques de l' #USN depuis 2015 : plutôt que le « force-level goal », l'USN se bat pour une capacité de combat effective.

Stratégie navale pure.

1/4 “Findings of fact. Findings of fact must be as specific as possible as to times, places, persons, and events. Each finding of fact must identify one fact only, and be supported by and cite to at least one enclosure to the report.” JAGINST 5800.7G bit.ly/36gK88s
2/4 JAGINST 5800.7G requires the Finding of Fact in the US Navy Court of Inquiry Report that “Available evidence combines to indicate the attack on LIBERTY on 8 June was in fact a case of mistaken identity“ must “be supported by and cite to at least one enclosure to the report.“

@PoorSenator @chrislhayes 1/8 For the benefit of @chrislhayes and his followers, let me give you the nickel tour of the attack on our ship.
2/8 The attack on the #USSLiberty was a deliberate, premeditated, well planned and almost perfectly executed attack by the Israeli military on a lone, freshly painted, well-marked, correctly identified, non-combatant #USNavy ship by the most powerful military in the Middle East…
3/8 …allied with the President of the United States in violation of international law and US Statutes.

Of a crew of 294 officers and men (including three civilians), the ship suffered thirty-four (34) killed in action and one hundred seventy-four (174) wounded in action.

➡️ L' #USN proposerait dans le cadre de son budget, discuté dans la future Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 - à dévoiler fin mars ou début avril 2022 - de procéder à des désarmements significatifs (forbes.com/sites/craighoo…) : Image
▪️ 10 #LCS classe Freedom + probable abandon des 5 en construction (revendus à des marines étrangères ?) ;

▪️ 28 destroyers type Arleigh Burke (21 x Flight I + 7 x Flight II) ;

▪️ 22 croiseurs classe Ticonderoga.
➡️ L'auteur ne le relève pas mais ces désarmements auraient peut être le potentiel à résoudre la quadrature du cercle : l'USN se doit actuellement d'arbitrer entre service à la mer, arrêt technique, arrêt technique majeur et modernisation,

🧶 à dérouler pour suivre la classe Freedom (9 + 6) dont les frégates de surveillance classe Floréal (6) auront été témoins et de sa naissance et peut être de sa mort.
➡️ Craig Hooper (blog @NextNavy) proposait, déjà, le 9 novembre 2020, de désarmer tous les LCS classe Freedom et d'arrêt les chantiers de ceux en construction en profitant de l'intérim entre deux gouvernements.
Il offrait le détail des malheurs de chacun des LCS classe Freedom et des immobilisations du fait des avaries de propulsion (forbes.com/sites/craighoo…).

Tomcat musing: a short thread on the "dowdy" parts of one of the most glamours interceptors of the world. 1/6 #avgeeks #aviation #aviationdaily #Tomcat #TopGun #USNavy
Did you know that when the F-14 stretches its wings fully forward, the fuselage slots into which the wings retracted are sealed with inflatable airbags? The airbags use bleed air from the TF30s to inflation! 2/6
#avgeeks #aviation #TopGun #Tomcat
The F-14's variable-geometry outer wings carry full-span leading-edge slats and almost full-span trailing-edge flaps. In addition, four-section spoilers augment the differential movement of the tailrons in roll control. 3/6

➡️ #Thread / #Hilo - Abonados al fracaso

1) Solemos hablar de innovación militar, de tecnologías disruptivas, de revoluciones y de la necesidad de invertir para no quedar descolgados. Sin embargo, incluso teniéndolo todo, muchos quedan atrás irremediablemente...

🚨 ¿Por qué?
2) Pensemos en cómo unas potencias pasan a otras sin miramientos, incluso cuando las primeras parecen estar en una posición totalmente ventajosa. Un caso claro es el del Imperio Británico antes de la Segunda Revolución Industrial frente a #Alemania o los #EEUU ⬇️
3) Como se ve en la gráfica anterior, con el advenimiento de la 2ª Rev. Ind., varias potencias comenzaron a crecer mucho más rápido que #UK, nación que se había visto más favorecida que nadie por la 1ª Rev. Ind. Un éxito que junto al colonialismo, dio pie a un círculo virtuoso.

Alright, the United States and its flight deck fantasies Part 1: The Flight Deck Cruisers

The Washington Naval Treaty, as well as the later London Naval treaties, were an incredible achievement for halting (temporarily) a growing naval arms race.
The German and Japanese navies are best known for their attempts to circumnavigate treaty restrictions. However, this does not mean other countries were playing by the rules.

The United States Navy was also looking for ways to circumnavigate treaty restrictions.
One of the more notable attempts to do this was through hybrid cruiser-carriers. Cruiser-sized warships with a large flight deck and a cruiser-level armament.

Such warships were desired for a variety of reasons.

🇦🇺🇬🇧🇺🇸 Hilo recopilatorio: #AUKUS

1) El gran anuncio de las últimas horas es la creación por parte de #Australia, #ReinoUnido y #EEUU de una nueva asociación pensada para contrapesar a #China y cuyo primer objetivo será el diseño y construcción de SSN para #Australia. Image
2) En un anuncio poco sorprendente, dada la postura habitual del país, la Primera Ministra de #NuevaZelanda, Jacinda Andern, ha afirmado que los nuevos submarinos no podrán acceder a aguas neozelandesas, al ser de propulsión nuclear.

3) Como anuncia el propio gobierno de #Australia en su web oficial, la intención del país es la de adquirir 8 submarinos de ataque de propulsión nuclear (SSN), mucho más adecuados para las necesidades del país que los submarinos convencionales.
