    The aircraft carrier Carl Vinson is expected to wrap up its current deployment — the first including the F-35C Lightning II fighter jet and the CMV-22 Osprey — in spring 2022.

    The Vinson and its carrier strike group departed San Diego in August 2021. Based on the Navy’s Optimized Fleet Response Plan, strike groups typically deploy for seven or eight months.


    Due to security reasons, the Vinson did not disclose a more specific timeline regarding when its deployment would conclude.

    USS Carl Vinson’s aircraft sustained two ‘Class A’ mishaps last week
    Officials say both affected aircraft are expected to return to operations.
    By Geoff Ziezulewicz
    “In order to protect the safety of our sailors and the security of the force, we do not share details concerning the future movements of the strike group,” Lt. Cmdr. Miranda Williams, a spokesperson for the Vinson, said in an email to Navy Times. “When we have news and updates to share, we will announce them publicly.”

    The carrier underwent a 17-month docking planned incremental availability in 2019 at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, Washington to update the ship for the F-35C before returning to San Diego in 2020.

    Those deployed with the Vinson as part of its carrier strike group include the guided-missile cruiser Lake Champlain; guided-missile destroyer Stockdale; and nine squadrons of embarked Carrier Air Wing 2.

    https://theaviationist.com/2022/01/10/f-35cs-aboard-uss-abraham-lincoln/

    Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 314 of 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing becomes the first Marine squadron to deploy the F-35C on an aircraft carrier.
    The F-35C Lightning II of the U.S. Marine Corps reached yet another milestone, with the type leaving for the first operational deployment aboard an aircraft carrier. The F-35s of Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 314 “Black Knights”, part of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, arrived on the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) on January 3, 2022, together with the other squadrons assigned to Carrier Air Wing Nine. The USS Lincoln is leaving San Diego with Carrier Strike Group 3 to head for the Pacific Ocean.

    “The Black Knight’s deployment of F-35C Lightning II aboard USS Abraham Lincoln is the newest chapter in the Marine Corps’ long history of naval integration,” said Maj. Gen. Bradford J. Gering, 3rd MAW commanding general. The upcoming deployment represents years of hard work and innovation by the Marines and Sailors of VMFA-314, MAG-11, and 3rd MAW. It also reinforces our commitment to fielding the most lethal and ready Navy-Marine Corps force as we project warfighting capabilities throughout the Indo-Pacific region, or globally wherever our nation calls.”

    The Marines consider the capability to deploy operationally the F-35C significant as it was specifically built for aircraft carrier operations, as well as enhancing the battlespace awareness of all aircraft in the Carrier Air Wing, contributing to a flexible, mobile force that expands the US military advantage at sea. This is especially true in a contested maritime region like the Pacific Ocean, where the presence of the 5th gen fighter aircraft might contribute to the regional stability while providing security for the US and allies.

    “Our ability to operate the F-35C in the Pacific greatly increases the Marine Corps’ naval expeditionary force capabilities by providing us the capacity to employ the most advanced electronic warfare capabilities on any aircraft today in support of fleet operations,” said Lt. Col. Brendan M. Walsh, VMFA-314 commanding officer. “In addition, having this asset available greatly increases the Marine Corps’ ability to provide security to our allied nations and preserve a free and open Indo-Pacific.”

    The 3rd MAW has also demonstrated the F-35’s long-range aerial maritime strike capabilities last summer during Exercise Summer Fury 21. During the exercise, which is the largest Marine aviation exercise on the West Coast, the Wing’s F/A-18C Hornets and F-35s flew from Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar to Washington State, a distance of more than one thousand miles, to deliver long-range precision fires on a simulated enemy naval surface combatant in a distributed, maritime environment.

    “The Summer Fury long-range strike is an opportunity for 3rd MAW to execute a maritime strike against an enemy surface combatant while being supported by an aerial-delivered forward arming and refueling point,” said Lt. Col. Duncan A. French, 3rd MAW lead operations planner. “The concepts and tasks inherent in this mission are critical to the success of a fight against a peer adversary.”

    The first operational deployment of the F-35C comes as a culminating effort as VMFA-314 completed its workups last year with Carrier Air Wing Nine on board the USS Abraham Lincoln. The last step off the workups saw VMFA-314 completing their final integrated training cycle along other elements of Carrier Strike Group Three in December as the Marine Corps continues to develop its 5th Generation strike fighter capabilities.

    The development of the USMC’s is 5th Generation strike fighter capabilities to meet the demands of the rapidly evolving future operating environment is still ongoing, as VMFA-314 became the first squadron in the Marine Corps to declare the Full Operational Capability (FOC) for the F-35C Lightning II in July 2021. VMFA-314 was the first Marine Corps squadron to transition to the F-35C variant of the Joint Strike Fighter after retiring its legacy F/A-18A/C aircraft and receiving its first F-35C in January 2020 from Naval Air Station Lemoore and declared the Initial Operational Capability (IOC) by the end of the year.

    The Abraham Lincoln Combat Strike Group is led by the command staff of CSG 3 and consists of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, Carrier Air Wing 9, the guided-missile cruiser USS Mobile Bay (CG 53) and the guided-missile destroyers of Destroyer Squadron 21 (DESRON 21) – USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62), USS Gridley (DDG 101), USS Sampson (DDG 102) and USS Spruance (DDG 111). This is also the first time in the U.S. Navy history that a woman, Capt. Amy Bauernschmidt, has been assigned the command of an aircraft carrier and will lead it on an operational deployment.

    The Carrier Air Wing Nine includes eight squadrons: Marine Fighter Attack Squadron (VMFA) 314 “Black Knights”, flying F-35Cs; Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 14 “Tophatters” and Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 151 “Vigilantes”, flying F/A-18E Super Hornets; Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 41 “Black Aces”, flying F/A-18F Super Hornets; Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 133 “Wizards”, flying EA-18G Growlers; Airborne Command & Control Squadron (VAW) 117 “Wallbangers”, flying E-2D Hawkeyes; Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 14 “Chargers”, flying MH-60S Knight Hawks Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron (HSM) 71 “Raptors”, flying MH-60R Sea Hawks.

    Snapped cables happen... normally when planes come in to catch the cable to go to full AB so if they miss or it snaps they can recover speed and do a go around and have another go.

    Clearly this cable took a lot of momentum from the plane before it snapped.... that is just unlucky.

    It's not a topic for this column, but I have to post the link here, otherwise no one would read it. There seems to be a lot of trouble in "heaven", that is, in the US Navy.

    08/25/2022
    Newspaper.ru (Gazeta.ru)

    The US Navy will not be killed by China, but by corrosion.

    US Navy ships and weapon systems - Page 20 Esmine10


    Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov spoke about the main threat to the US Navy

    US Navy ships, according to The Washington Post, are "susceptible to intense rust disease." The publication refers to an "internal investigation of Congress", which revealed that up to 90% of American warships are rusting. "Gazeta.Ru" understood the reasons for what happened.

    The problem of rusting US Navy ships was raised by the American edition of The Washington Post. The publication notes that "the Pentagon is facing a formidable and insidious challenge - rust, and so far rust is winning this war."

    The newspaper refers to some "internal investigation of the US Congress." It turned out that up to 90% of American warships are rusting. At the same time, Pentagon officials declined to comment on this information.

    This is not the first publication in the American media about the rusting American navy. Back in November 2021, The Drive compared the rusting American ships at the Norfolk base with the ships of the Soviet Navy in the period after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

    “A visit to the base makes a depressing impression. It's like "naval Detroit". The city became a ghost town in the 1980s when the car giants left. Norfolk became a ghost because someone in Washington decided to save money. It is not China that will kill the US Navy, but rust,” The Drive noted.
    The US Navy has about 600 active ships. According to The Washington Post, $3 billion was spent on removing rust from their hulls in 2012. Such expenses, the newspaper notes, were recognized as "burdensome for the military budget."

    “Currently, the US Navy has 11 aircraft carriers - 10 of the Nimitz class and the latest Ford project. At the same time, out of the top ten, only 5 are in full swing, the rest are under permanent repair. The Gerald Ford (whose construction cost $13 billion), despite the fact that it entered the fleet in 2017, has not yet passed all the necessary tests and, most likely, its full operation will not begin soon - the ammunition supply systems do not work on deck. By 2024, the United States plans to complete the construction of two more Ford-class aircraft carriers. By this time, the Gerald Ford will already have time to rust, ”Sergei Belousov, a member of the Collegium of Military Experts, told Gazeta.Ru.

    According to The Washington Post, 2013 saw a "naval budget anomaly". "Until 2012, huge sums were spent on rust control. Then it was considered ineffective. But instead of balancing the costs, they were simply removed completely, ”the Washington Post notes.
    “All ships rust, regardless of their affiliation,” Admiral Vladimir Komoyedov, ex-commander of the Black Sea Fleet, told Gazeta.Ru. - You need to understand that the ship has a metal hull that is in sea water, which is an aggressive environment that causes oxidation, which contributes to the appearance of rust. It does not affect the combat capability or visibility of the ship, but over time it leads to the destruction of the ship's structures. And here we are talking, first of all, about constant care and maintenance of order.

    Komoyedov believes that the costs of rust control in the Russian and Soviet fleets have never been "critical". “You can’t spend a lot of money on this, but you can’t forget about it either. We have always had a “golden mean” here. Americans are thrown from one extreme to another. At first they, relatively speaking, polished every scratch. And now, on the contrary, they decided that it’s not worth dealing with the topic at all,” says Komoyedov.

    In March 2019, Defense News noted that "a drastic reduction in rust preventive maintenance could lead to catastrophic consequences."

    “Rust on a ship is an alarming symptom for any fleet,” military expert Captain 1st Rank Vasily Dandykin told Gazeta.Ru. - It means either a lack of proper funding, or a lack of discipline and complete relaxation, which leads to a loss of combat readiness
    We went through this in the early 1990s, when the Navy was slaughtered alive and the ships were idle at the quay wall. There ships and rust without movement. Fortunately, the situation has changed and our fleet has received movement.

    This can be seen not only at naval parades, but also during long-distance sea voyages, both in the Atlantic and in the Pacific.

    The rate of rusting is temperature based. Being a warmer water navy the USN has a potentially much more serious problem than the RuN.

    Meanwhile by careful operations the Ukrainian Navy seems to have joined the Swiss Navy in totally eliminating the problem. No ships. Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Military review
    The US Navy decommissioned four Ticonderoga-class cruisers, a fifth is on the way

    US Navy ships and weapon systems - Page 20 Vms-ss10


    The US Navy continues to retire the Ticonderoga-class cruisers, deeming it too costly to keep them operational. With the money saved on the modernization of cruisers, it is planned to purchase new ships for the US Navy.
    In total, according to the plans of the command of the US Navy, five Ticonderoga-class cruisers will be decommissioned this year, and today four of them have already been decommissioned. The first cruiser USS Vella Gulf (CG-72) was decommissioned in August, in the 20th of September - USS Monterey (CG-61), on September 22 and 23, the cruisers USS Anzio (CG-68) and USS Hue City were commissioned from the US Navy (CG-66) respectively. The ceremony was held at the naval base in Norfolk. Another cruiser, USS Port Royal (CG-73), is being "retired" on September 29th.

    Earlier it was reported that in 2022 it is planned to decommission seven rather than five cruisers of this class. As stated in the command of the US Navy, the modernization of the Ticonderoga-class cruisers is too expensive, for example, to upgrade the two ships USS Anzio (CG-68) and USS Hue City (CG-66), it would take $ 1.5 billion.
    The decommissioning of the Ticonderoga cruisers, which play a leading role in air defense as part of the AUG, has been talked about for a long time, it was stated that the ships cause too many maintenance problems due to outdated equipment and systems.
    The cruisers have a displacement of 9800 tons, a length of 172 meters and a width of 16 meters. Armed with cruise missiles "Tomahawk", anti-submarine ASROC, anti-aircraft SM-2 and SM-3. They are considered the most heavily armed ships of the US Navy, as they have 122 vertical missile launch cells. Two MH-60R Seahawk helicopters are based on board.

    The U.S. Navy sent the Zumwalt stealth destroyer to the coast of China to "create a new level of complexity in combat space"


    US Navy ships and weapon systems - Page 20 Vms-ss11


    The lead American stealth destroyer Zumwalt headed to the Western Pacific to demonstrate the full power of the American fleet in front of China. It is reported by CNN.

    According to the command of the US 7th Fleet, on September 26 the ship arrived in Japan, before that it visited the naval base in Guam. The task of the ship is to display the American flag off the coast of China and "create a new level of combat space complexity for potential adversaries." Claims have already been made that the PRC Navy is no match for Zumwalt in size.

    The presence of a stealth warship will arouse great Chinese interest - Former US Navy Captain Carl Schuster

    It is worth noting that the largest destroyer of the US Navy actually has no weapons, it should be equipped with new missiles only in 2025. Zumwalt will be the first to receive the Common Hypersonic Glide Body (C-HGB) system, which allows the use of a rocket engine to launch rockets at hypersonic speeds. Thus, he will become the first carrier of hypersonic missiles in the US Navy. The two remaining ships of the series will also receive the same system.
    Meanwhile, it is noted that this is the first long-distance voyage of a stealth destroyer, earlier the command of the US Navy was afraid to send these ships to the open sea, laying routes so that the ship was at a distance from the coast not exceeding 60 miles. In addition, these destroyers are not included in any groupings, they still make solo voyages, they are not involved in combat patrols, since they cannot decide in which format to use these ships.

    The U.S. Navy sent the Zumwalt stealth destroyer to the coast of China to "create a new level of complexity in combat space

    It is worth noting that the largest destroyer of the US Navy actually has no weapons, it should be equipped with new missiles only in 2025

    I bet that its next deployment, or "Med cruise", will likely be extended for a few months to make up for all the lost time it wasn't deployed!

    I expect some of them to be transferred to other friendly navies or even to the USCG, as happened with other ships many times before.

    There is no way the US will export cruisers or even the largest destroyers. These will just be scrapped.
