    HAhahahaa... hilarious.... so it says that Russian subs are 80% of what US subs were 30 years ago during the cold war...

    The big upgrade for the new virginia class sub is an extra vertical launch tube bin with 6 extra missiles over the standard two bins with 12 missiles.

    So these super american subs will carry 18 subsonic cruise missiles and that will make them so sophisticated and powerful.

    Yasen class Russian subs carry 32 tubes for either long range subsonic cruise missiles or supersonic rocket powered anti sub missiles, or supersonic anti ship missiles.

    They talk about 2020-2025... by then the Russian subs will be carrying Mach 8 hypersonic Zircon anti ship missiles... perhaps that will make them 50% of US subs from WWII maybe.

    What a load of crap.

    Actually, they said russians are 80% of what they (russians and not US) were during cold war. And they are wright because compared to the more than 300 subs that soviet navy had, russia is not as much powerfull as the soviet navy even if in terms of technology they are better than in the 80s.

    The smaller number of vessels means less time in the sea to control other nations.

    It is like the strategic patrol that resumed in 2007 because they couldn t sustain the effort before that.

    But if they do what they say they will do, get gorshkovs and more SSN, that will change.

    If that is what they were trying to say then they are still wrong.

    During the cold war the at sea rate of the Soviet sub force was tiny.... less than 25%.

    Now they have far fewer subs but they are vastly more active...

    And one presumes as their numbers increase their activities will also increase too.

    Yeah they are more active but 25% of more than 300 subs is huge and they had much more big ships that were sailing around the world.

    But the goals were not the same. Russia doesn't need to defend communist government around the world, just defend their interst and borders so it's a pointless discussion to compare them.

    The puzzle in this picture is where are the other ships? I thought a Carrier Task Force was larger than a carrier and 4 others (plus submarines).

    Statistics: the US Navy's naval staff as of 01/01/2018

    The presented statistical study takes into account warships of the main classes (nuclear and non-nuclear submarines, aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, frigates, corvettes, littoral warships, seagoing landing ships) with a total displacement of 2000 tons (above 1000 tons). that component of the Navy, which is capable of projecting force to remote regions of the world. The ships transferred to the fleet (decommissioned), starting from 01/01/2018, are included in the initial data for reference - they are not included in the total number of ships or in the total displacement. The names of the ships are given in Russian transcription, tested for compliance with either established (traditional) writing, or dictionary phonetic transcription.

    The NSM anti-ship missile was chosen for arming the American LCS ships

    On May 31, 2018, the Naval Sea Systems Command of the United States Navy gave the American corporation Raytheon a contract worth $ 14.856016 million for the delivery of the first batch (officially undisclosed - but apparently, eight) of NSM anti-ship missiles under the Over- the-Horizon Weapon Systems for equipping the "Littoral" LCS combat ships of the American fleet. The contract includes the delivery of one set of fire control systems, from which it can be concluded that the contract covers so far equipping the NSM PCS with only one LCS ship - apparently, for testing the integration of the complex into ships. Previously, in the budget request for Work should be completed by May 2020. However, the contract includes an option, the implementation of which will bring the total cost to 847.6 million dollars - that is, with the equipping of the NSM of all LCS ships.

    Thus, the NSM (Naval Strike Missile) anti-ship missile developed by the Norwegian Kongsberg group and offered by the Raytheon and Kongsberg consortium was selected for the "Over-the-Horizon Weapon Systems (OTH WS)" competition for equipping the "literal" LCS warships and actually adopted by the Navy USA. This is a great success for Kongsberg. In addition to LCS ships, the missile chosen for the OTH WS program should also be used to equip the prospective American frigates FFG (X), and, possibly, other US Navy surface ships.

    Reads quite well. Only first two parts out sofar.

    By Dmitry Filipoff

    Series Introduction

    “Fleet level processes and procedures designed for safe and effective operations were increasingly relaxed due to time and fiscal constraints, and the ‘normalization-of-deviation’ began to take root in the culture of the fleet. Leaders and organizations began to lose sight of what ‘right’ looked like, and to accept these altered conditions and reduced readiness standards as the new normal.” –2017 Strategic Readiness Review commissioned in the aftermath of the collisions involving USS Fitzgerald (DDG-62) and USS John S. McCain (DDG-56)

    The U.S. Navy is suffering from self-inflicted strategic dysfunction across the breadth of its enterprise. This series seeks to explore the theme of the normalization of deviation in some of the most critical operations, activities, and attributes that prepare the U.S. Navy for war. Because the U.S. Navy is the senior partner in its alliance activities many of these problems probably hold true for allied navies as well.

    Part One below looks at U.S. Navy combat training and draws a comparison with Chinese Navy training.

    Part Two will examine firepower relating to offense, defense, and across force structure.

    Part Three will look at tactics and doctrine with an emphasis on network- and carrier-centric fleet combat.

    Part Four will discuss technical standards.

    Part Five will look at the relationship between the Navy’s availability and material condition.

    Part Six will examine the application of strategy to operations.

    Part Seven will look at strategy and force development, including force structure assessment.

    Part Eight will conclude with recommendations for a force development strategy to refocus the U.S. Navy on the high-end fight and sea control.



    http://cimsec.org/how-the-fleet-forgot-to-fight-pt-1-combat-training/37873

    “This ship is built to fight; you’d better know how.” –Former Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Arleigh Burke (ret.) at the commissioning ceremony of the destroyer USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51)

    The training strategy of a military service is one of its most fundamental responsibilities. Training is central to piercing the fog of war as much as possible before combat exacts its price. Training is what forges people into warfighters.

    Soon after the Cold War ended the Navy announced a “change in focus and, therefore, in priorities for the Naval Service away from operations on the sea toward power projection.”1 A new operating focus on low-end missions such as partner development missions, striking land targets, and deterring rogue regimes came to dominate its focus. Different training followed. This training and operating paradigm replaced the high-end threat focus the Navy was originally made for in an era of great power competition against the Soviet Union. But the shift was wholesale, and did not attempt to preserve a responsible minimum of important skills that still held relevance. Perhaps worst of all, somehow this shift allowed U.S. Navy training to fall to incredible lows and remain there for most of a generation.

    So much valuable corporate memory has evaporated. Extremely unrealistic training exercises starved Sailors of opportunities to learn important skills and prove themselves. And while the U.S. Navy slipped for years its latest rival, the Chinese Navy, made strong gains in the very same skills the U.S. Navy was losing.



    http://cimsec.org/how-the-fleet-forgot-to-fight-pt-firepower/37357

    The Navy’s tactical ignorance is built into its arsenal. Currently some of the Navy’s most important weapons development programs are not just evolutionary, but revolutionary in the possibilities they open up. This is not due to innovation, but instead many of these noteworthy and foundational capabilities are finally arriving decades after the technologies were first proven, many close to half a century ago. Many of these most crucial weapons are already in the hands of great power competitors such as Russia and China who have had decades of opportunity to train and refine tactics with them.

    This may be just a ploy by the USN to get more money. Congress is unlikely to agree as there is lots of money to go round with a refurb, know what I mean?

    It looks like it is made of brick... I would have thought a stealthy design would try to have as few joins as possible and therefore have fewer but larger surface panels on its exterior.

    Of course it wont be very stealthy with those two tug boats attached to it all the time... the propulsion still giving problems?

    The side cross section of this POS is enormous. And that slant is not going to stop an incoming radar beam from scattering back to the

    The new missile will replace the USA and the "Tomahawk" and "Harpoon"

    The new missile will replace the USA and the
    In the command of the naval systems of the U.S. Navy (NAVAIR) has published a request for obtaining information from potential contractors for the OASuW program.

    The service is responsible for material support of air components of the fleet, asks stakeholders to present their achievements and to indicate the approximate cost of creating a new universal missile by 2030. It is reported by the French edition of Air&Cosmos.

    As indicated in the aforementioned request, the new product must be capable of hitting both ground and naval targets. It is assumed that the quality of the media will be platforms such as the F-35 (the rocket will be located inside the aircraft and outside the car), F/A-18, P-8 and, in addition, a promising fighter of the next generation.

    NAVAIR intends to perform the power plant of the new weapons, different systems, in particular, to navigation, information and military. Also there will be studying its ability to interact with other missiles. So the new product must be able to connect in your face like properties of anti-ship missiles "Harpoon" and winged "Tomahawk".
    On the approximate cost of the program is not reported.

    https://weaponews.com/news/65349748-the-new-missile-will-replace-the-usa-and-the-tomahawk-and-harpoon.html

    So this is how it goes, time after time:

    1) Call Russia a broken state at the brink of disintegration and with backwards, rusting military absolutely incapable of facing US military might
    2) Order countless programs to update US junk to astronomic prices so they will hopefully manage to do in a decade what Russian armament is doing now
    3) Repeat ad nauseam
