    Chile Armed Forces Thread

    Post  Manov on Mon Jan 12, 2015 9:28 pm

    Hello guys, well i think it is my responsability to make this thread going, so i will start. For you people know a little more about my country military and doctrine. Also news and opinions. I personally dont like the people who runs my armed forces, but meh, it is my country rite?.

    Ill start saying in recent years Chile has had a spectacular modernization progress and now are a NATO standard forces, with plenty of capabilities. Still have shortcomings as surface to air defence and air transport, but it has been taking goods steps. Politically, they are the heirs of the military dictatorship.

    Now we have very good relations with Argentina, even making a joint U.N. rapid force (Cruz del Sur). With Peru and Bolivia the relation is strained by territorial, cultural, even racial and political issues . Chile is really a rascist country, a very weird phenomenon. Ill talk about  it later in the topic.

    Ill let some pictures here and i will eventually get more and more info.

    Cheers!

    Chilean Navy retires last two missile boats Type 148

    Post  Manov on Mon Jan 12, 2015 10:01 pm

    The Chilean Navy withdraws the last two missile Type 148

    Tras 16 años de servicio, la Armada de Chile dio de baja las últimas dos lanchas misileras de la clase 148 Tiger en diciembre de 2014. Se trata de las unidades LM-38 Teniente Serrano (ex S 60 Kranich) y LM-37 Teniente Orella (ex S 54 Elster), baja que tiene una serie de implicaciones. Las otras dos unidades había sido dadas de baja, en marzo de 2014 la LM-39 Teniente Uribe (ex S 41 Tiger) y en diciembre de 2012 la LM-36 Guardiamarina Riquelme (ex S 49 Wolf).

    Esta clase resultó ser una versión mejorada del francés Combattante II diseñado para Israel por Lürssen y fabricadas en parte en el astillero galo CMN (Constructions Méchaniques de Normandie) de Cherburgo y en el caso de 8 ejemplares, entre ellas la S 54 Elster, completadas en los astilleros Lürssen de Bremen. Las 20 unidades de la clase fueron entregadas a la entonces Bundesmarine en el periodo 1972-1975 siendo objeto de modernizaciones a principio de la década de los 80 y luego de los 90.

    La Armada adquirió 6 de estas unidades en agosto de 1997, cuando aún se encontraban operativas con el Tercer Escuadrón de Lanchas Rápidas en el puerto de Flensburg. Las unidades S 43 Luchs y S 53 Pelikan siendo transferidas a Chile para ser usadas como fuente de repuestos. Las primeras unidades llegaron a la Base Naval de Talcahuano el 11 de octubre de 1997 a bordo del dique Condock I, mientras que la segunda llega a Talcahuano a bordo de la M/N Clipper Cheyenne el 24 de noviembre de 1998.

    En 1999 se da inicio al proyecto Indo que implicó remotorizar las unidades con propulsores MTU 396 y generadores CAT 3306, y la modernización de los sistemas de navegación y comunicaciones.  Las cuatro Tiger 148 formaron el COMISNOR – Comando de Misileras Norte – en el puerto de Iquique, una de las dos Fuerzas de Teatro con que contó la Armada en los Teatros de Operaciones Norte y Austral. Esta Flotilla, potente y de reacción rápida, junto a medios aeronavales y de patrullaje, era capaz de reaccionar y rechazar cualquier agresión desde el mar. Anticipando la baja de las Tiger, la Armada de Chile por un lado fusionó los dos Comandos en uno, creándose el Comando de Misileras y reasignado a Iquique dos de las tres unidades SAAR IV hasta entonces destacadas en Punta Arenas.

    Relevante resulta también destacar que, con la baja de la Tiger 148, la Armada da de baja de las unidades a flote el misil MM38 Exocet. Este resulta ser el primer misil superficie-superficie adoptado por la institución, habiéndose firmado el contrato con la entonces Aerospatiale el 21 de Abril de 1972. Esto fueron a equipar las dos fragatas Leander en construcción en el Reino Unido y los dos destructores clase Almirante en procese de modernización en el mismo país. El primer MM-38 Exocet chileno fue probado en noviembre de 1975. El MM38 posteriormente equipó los cuatro destructores County, la fragata Zenteno, las misileras Tiger y la batería costera Excalibur, que estrictamente hablando es la única que hoy aun opera con el antiguo ingenio francés.

    A efectos prácticos, la Armada da de baja una significativa Flotilla Táctica, la que se suple en parte con las dos SAAR IV, pero debilita ostensiblemente el Teatro de Operaciones Sur, donde pronto recalará el OPV-83 Marinero Fuentealba, que pese a su cañón Oto Melara de 76mm no suple las misileras.

    Defensa.com) After 16 years of service, the Chilean Navy has eliminated the last two missile boats of the class 148 Tiger in December 2014. This is the LM-38 units Lieutenant Serrano (ex S 60 Kranich) and Orella Lieutenant LM-37 (ex S 54 Elster), which has a low number of implications. The other two units had been written off in March 2014 LM-39 Lieutenant Uribe (ex S 41 Tiger) and in December 2012 the LM-36 Guardiamarina Riquelme (ex S 49 Wolf).

    This class proved to be an improved version of French Combattante II designed to Israel by Lürssen and manufactured partly in the French shipyard CMN (Constructions Méchaniques de Normandie) Cherbourg and in the case of 8 specimens, including 54 S Elster, completed in the Lürssen shipyard in Bremen. The 20 units of the class were given to the then Bundesmarine in the period 1972-1975 undergoing upgrades to the beginning of the 80s and then 90s. The Navy purchased 6 of these units in August 1997, while still were operating with the Third Squadron Swift Boat in the port of Flensburg. The units S 43 and S 53 Luchs Pelikan being transferred to Chile to be used as a source of spare parts. The first units arrived at the Naval Base of Talcahuano on October 11, 1997 aboard the dock Condock I, while the second reaches Talcahuano aboard the M / V Clipper Cheyenne on November 24, 1998. In 1999 is given Home to the Indus repower project involving propulsion units with MTU generators CAT 396 and 3306, and the modernization of navigation and communication systems. The four Tiger 148 formed the COMISNOR - misileras Command North - in the port of Iquique, one of the two forces which featured Theatre with the Navy in the North and Operations Theatres Austral. This Flotilla, powerful and rapid reaction with air and naval patrols and media, was able to react and reject any attack from the sea. Anticipating the floor of the Tiger, the Chilean Navy on one hand the two commands merged into one, creating the Command misileras and reassigned to Iquique two of the three units SAAR IV hitherto stationed in Punta Arenas. Relevant is also noteworthy that, the floor of the Tiger 148, Navy withdraws units afloat MM38 Exocet missile. This proves the first surface-to-surface missile adopted by the institution, having signed the contract with the then Aerospatiale on April 21, 1972. This was to equip the two frigates Leander under construction in the UK and two destroyers Admiral class process of modernization in the same country. The first Chilean Exocet MM-38 was tested in November 1975. The MM38 subsequently equipped the four destroyers County, the Zenteno frigate, the Tiger and the coastal battery misileras Excalibur, which strictly speaking is the only one that still operates today with the old mill French. For practical purposes, the Navy withdraws a significant Flotilla Tactics, which is supplied in part by the two SAAR IV, but significantly weakens the Southern Theatre Operations, where he soon stop off the OPV-83 Sailor Fuentealba, that despite Oto Melara its 76mm cannon does not replace the misileras.

    Chile – Evolved SeaSparrow Missiles (ESSMs)

    The State Department has made a determination approving a possible Foreign Military Sale to Chile for Evolved SeaSparrow Missiles (ESSMs), equipment, training, and support. The estimated cost is $140.1 million. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale on July 1, 2016.

    The Government of Chile has requested a possible sale of:

    ** Major Defense Equipment (MDE):

    -- Thirty-thirty (33) Evolved SeaSparrow Missiles (ESSMs)
    -- Six (6) Evolved SeaSparrow Telemetry Missiles
    -- Three (3) MK 41 Vertical Launching Systems (VLS), tactical version, baseline VII

    **Non-MDE:

    This request also includes the following Non-MDE: Ten (10) MK25 Quad Pack Canisters; Five (5) ESSM Shipping Containers; Five (5)MK-73 Continuous Wave Illumination Transmitters, One (1) Inertial Missile Initializer Power Supply (IMIPS); spare and repair parts, support and test equipment, publications and technical documentation, personnel training, U.S. Government and contractor engineering, technical and logistics support services, technical assistance, installation and integration oversight support, logistics, program management, packaging and transportation.

    The total estimated value of MDE is $73.2 million. The total overall estimated value is $140.1 million.

    This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by increasing Chile’s ability to contribute to regional security and promoting interoperability with the U.S. forces. The sale will provide upgraded air defense capabilities on Chile’s type 23 frigates. The proposed sale improves Chile’s capability to deter regional threats and strengthen its homeland defense. Chile will have no difficulty absorbing this equipment into its armed forces.

    The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter the basic military balance in the region.

    The prime contractors will be Raytheon Missile Systems, Tucson, Arizona, BAE Systems, Aberdeen, South Dakota, and Lockheed Martin, Bethesda, MD. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.

    Implementation of this proposed sale will not require the assignment of any additional U.S. Government or contractor representatives to Chile.

    There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.

    This notice of a potential sale is required by law and does not mean the sale has been concluded.
