LCS 3 Fort Worth Will Be Christened and Launched Dec. 4, 2010
As the Navy changes its acquisition strategy...again

The U.S. Navy’s third Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), Fort Worth (LCS 3), will be christened and launched at Marinette Marine Corporation, Marinette, Wis., Saturday, Dec. 4, 2010, at 10 a.m.

The ship will be christened by the sponsor Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), with the traditional smashing of a champagne bottle across the ship’s bow, followed by the ship launching sideways into the Menominee River, which divides Wisconsin and Michigan as it empties into Lake Michigan.

Joining Congresswoman Granger will be Lockheed Martin Vice President of Ship and Aviation Systems Dan Schultz, LCS Program Manager Joe North and Marinette Marine CEO Richard McCreary.

The Navy awarded the Lockheed Martin-led industry team a fixed-price incentive fee contract to build the third LCS (LCS 3) in March 2009.  Fort Worth is more than 70 percent complete.

Lockheed Martin says the ship is on budget and schedule, and will be delivered to the Navy in 2012.

The Lockheed Martin LCS industry team includes Marinette Marine Corporation, a Fincantieri company, naval architect Gibbs & Cox, and a number of domestic and international companies.  The first LCS, USS Freedom, was also built at Marinette.  It was commissioned in Milwaukee, Wis., on Nov. 12, 2008, and is currently homeported in San Diego, Calif.  Freedom was deployed ahead of schedule this past summer, conducting counter-narcotics operations in the Southern Command area of operations and taking part in the RIMPAC exercises in Hawaii.

The Navy has stated that it intends to acquire 55 LCS “seaframes” to conduct missions of anti-submarine warfare (ASW); Mine warfare (MIW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW), and that it would “downselect” to determine which of the two Littoral Combat Ship variants (the Lockheed Martin monohull or General Dynamics trimaran) would be procured, presumably no later than Dec. 14, when the offers expire.

However, in a surprise announcement that once again complicates the acquisition strategy for what was supposed to be a simple ship, the Navy said it that it would ask Congress for authorization to change the program of record to award 10 ships to each team, which would get more ships into the fleet faster; and keep shipyards – and their workers – working.

“We’re engaging with key committee members, their staff and industry on whether awarding a 10-ship block buy to each team merits congressional authorization,” Capt. Cate Mueller, a spokeswoman representing the assistant secretary of the Navy for research, development and acquisition, said Nov. 3.

Mueller says either way the Navy will move forward.  “We have not stopped the current solicitation,” she said.  “If the [dual-award] path doesn’t prove feasible and we don’t get the congressional authorization, we will proceed to down-select in accordance with the terms of the current solicitation.”[/i]

New destroyer Akizuki launched (corrected)
By Kyle Mizokami– October 17, 2010
Posted in: destroyers, MSDF

Last week Japan launched the first in a new class of destroyers. Named Akizuki, this class was formally known as 19DD and apparently an evolution of the Takanami-class destroyers. Xinhua had an article in Chinese, which Google translated. Don’t try too hard to read it, just skim. We’ll piece it all together afterwards:

Comprehensive Japanese media sources, the Japanese in the 21st century battlefield and a new generation of advanced design and manufacture of self-19DD-class destroyers of the first naval vessel – “Moon” number (hull number DD-115) on October 13, 2010 at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Nagasaki Shipyard.

19DD destroyer of the standard displacement of 5,000 tons, full load displacement of 6,800 tons, maximum speed of up to 30 knots, a crew of 200. ”Autumn Moon” Japanese guided missile destroyer equipped with the latest advanced technology developed combat system (ATECS), which spent 20 years in Japan developed the 5th generation of carrier-based battle command systems. ATECS and “Aegis” with similar characteristics, is a combination of phased array radar and high-speed data processing technology integrated shipboard combat command system, also known as the Japanese version of “Aegis.”

It is understood that the reason why this 5000-ton destroyer class ship named 19DD because the first ship of this class is Heisei 19 year (calendar 2007) fiscal year defense budget is approved, the plans to build two fiscal 2008, fiscal 2009 construction of the first three and four, plan the construction of 4 total. Every ship 19DD plans to build five-class destroyers, and finally enter service in Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF), the first ship commissioned in 2011, the second ship in service in 2012.The third and fourth vessels planned fleet service in 2013. July 17, 2009, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries shipyard in Nagasaki 19DD-class destroyers for the first one held a shop keel ceremony.

19DD-class destroyers built for the purpose of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force “at the” class helicopter carrier, and “King Kong” class destroyers to provide a layer of defense forces around to make them immune to attack from the water and air, so that they can concentrate on completing their ballistic missile defense mission.

Mitsubishi Nagasaki shipyard belonging to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, is a Japanese company, is one of the core Mitsubishi Group, is also Japan’s largest Jungongshengchan enterprises. Since 2003, the Defense Agency to accept military orders amounted to 280 billion yen, ranking first in each military enterprises. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, the predecessor of the New Year can be traced back to between the Meiji Restoration. In 1884, Mitsubishi founder Iwasaki Yataro province from the government leased the Nagasaki Shipbuilding and Industry Bureau, will be named Nagasaki Shipyard in 1917, the enterprise was renamed Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., after the development of the Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.. To 1934, the company’s business has extended to heavy machinery, aircraft, railway vehicles, the company changed its name to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.. To become involved in shipbuilding, aircraft production and engine manufacturing operations of the integrated companies, many owned factories in Japan. (Author: Pei Shen) (Link)

All pretty good info, all things considering, although I think there was a translation error and the “King Kong” destroyer is actually the Kongo-class destroyer. Naming a destroyer “King Kong” is a great idea, but somehow I doubt the MSDF would go for it. The 5000t Destroyer page on Wikipedia has also been recently updated. (For one thing, the name “Nobita” is gone.) Drawing on all available sources, including a thread on militaryphotos.net, Akizuki looks like this:

- Akizuki, “Autumn Moon”, DD-115.
- Launched at the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Shipyard in Nagasaki.
- First of five ships of the class to be built.
- To be commissioned in 2011, followed by the second ship in 2012, third and fourth to be commissioned in 2013.
- Displacement: 5,000 tons, fully loaded 6,800 tons.
- Maximum speed: 30 knots
- Electronics:  OPS-20C search radar, OYQ-11 ACDS, FCS-3 AAW System, OQQ-22 ASW System, NOLQ-3D EW System
- Armament: 1 Mk. 45 5″ gun,  4 x 2 sets of Type 90 anti-ship missiles, 32 vertical launch silos for missiles (Enhanced Sea Sparrow, ASROC), 2 triple tube HOS-303 324mm torpedo mounts
- Aviation complement: 2 SH-60 helicopters
- Equipped with ATECS battle command system
- Meant as an escort for Hyuga and 22DDH helicopter destroyers and JMSDF BMD destroyers (Atago, Kongo-class)

In 2007, the first design pictured below was proposed. The design implemented quite a few changes, with additional room for a UAV in the aircraft hangar and a UUV in the Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat storage area.  Point defense went from Phalanx 1B to SeaRAM. The original design also called for more stealthy features, particularly the mast and a forward gun that recessed into a stealthy enclosure. Cost was projected at JPY85 billion. The design was not approved.

In 2009, the second design pictured below was proposed. Note the electronics mast is less stealthy, the 5″ gun enclosure was done away with, and Phalanx 1B was back. This design change was also not approved.

Пакистан намерен приобрести 6 подводных лодок у Китая


Министерство обороны Пакистана обратилось к федеральному правительству с предложением одобрить закупку у КНР 6 неатомных подводных лодок с воздухонезависимой энергетической установкой для противодействия новым угрозам безопасности государства. Согласно предполагаемому контракту 4 лодки будут построены в КНР, 2 – в Пакистане, сообщает The Express Tribune со ссылкой на неназванный правительственный источник.

По словам источника, приобретение лодок у Китая заложит фундамент для последующей совместной разработки неатомных подводных лодок.

Министерство обороны уведомило членов федерального кабинета, что ВМС Пакистана испытывают угрожающий дисбаланс между количеством подводных лодок и надводных кораблей.

Желание приобрести подводные лодки у КНР озвучил еще в 2009 году президент Пакистана Асиф Али Зардари во время своего визита в Китай. Вопрос также обсуждался в ходе визита премьер-министра КНР в Пакистан в 2010 году. К переговорам подключен штаб ВМС Пакистана.

В настоящее время ВМС Пакистана насчитывают 5 боеготовых ДЭПЛ и 3 малые подводные лодки.

Indian Navy Test Fires Dhanush Missile

14 March 2011

The Indian Navy has test fired its nuclear-capable ballistic missile, Dhanush, with a range of 350km, from a naval ship off the Orissa coast, India, as part of a user training exercise, defence sources have said.

"Today's test launch was tracked from take-off to impact point through an integrated network of sophisticated radars and electro-optic instruments for post-mission data analyses," the sources added.
Dhanush, the naval version of the indigenously developed surface-to-surface Prithvi missile system, is a single-stage liquid propellant ship-based missile developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO).

The missile has a pay-load capacity of 500kg and can carry conventional and nuclear warheads capable of hitting sea and shore-based targets.

The missile was successfully flight tested in 2010 from INS Subhadra in the Bay of Bengal, according to Press Trust of India.

DCNS Completes First OPV Hull Assembly

17 March 2011

DCNS has completed the hull assembly of the first Gowind Class offshore patrol vessel (OPV) at the group's Lorient shipyard, which is scheduled for launch this spring.

The new OPV has been designed to carry out maritime surveillance and a wide range of coast guard and naval missions.

The company is working towards completing the ship in 20 months for delivery in late 2011 to the French Navy for three years.

The French Navy will demonstrate Gowind's relevance and operational worth by conducting missions from area surveillance to anti-piracy, counterterrorism, humanitarian aid, search and rescue, and maritime safety and security.

The 87m-long OPV offers three weeks' blue-water endurance, a range of 8,000nm and can cruise at a speed of 21kt.

The OPV can accommodate an organic helicopter and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) as well as 30 passengers.
