    Russia’s Moskva Missile Cruiser, Dubbed A “Carrier Killer” By NATO.
    Odo Puiu info



    Published on Jan 12, 2017
    Odo Puiu info invites you to watch ….
    Russia’s Moskva Missile Cruiser, Dubbed A “Carrier Killer” by NATO.

    The ship is currently held under the patronage of the city of Moscow.
    Slava was laid down in 1976 in Shipyard 445 of the 61 Kommunara Shipbuilding Plant in Mykolaiv, was launched in 1979, and commissioned on 30 January 1983. Slava returned to Mykolaiv in December 1990 for a refit but was not returned to service until April 2000. Recommissioned as Moskva, she replaced the Kynda class cruiser Admiral Golovko as the flagship of the Black Sea Fleet.

    In early April 2003, Moskva, along with Pytlivy, Smetlivy, and a landing ship departed Sevastopol for exercises in the Indian Ocean with a Pacific Fleet task group (Marshal Shaposhnikov and Admiral Panteleyev) and the Indian Navy. The force was supported by the Project 1559V tanker Ivan Bubnov and the Project 712 ocean-going tug Shakhter.

    In August 2008, in response to the Georgian crisis, the Moskva was deployed to secure the Black Sea. After Russia's recognition of Abkhazia's independence, the ship was stationed at the Abkhazian capital, Sukhumi.

    On 3 December 2009 the Moskva was laid up for a month at floating dock PD-30 for a scheduled interim overhaul which comprised replacement of cooling and other machinery, reclamation work at bottom and outboard fittings, propulsion shafts and screws, clearing and painting of bottom and above-water parts of the ship's hull.

    In April 2010 it was reported that the cruiser would join other navy units in the Indian Ocean to conduct exercises.

    1946 TRIP TO EUROPE ABOARD BATTLESHIP USS MISSOURI BB-63 52064
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Feb 1, 2017
    Shot by an unknown serviceman, this historic silent home movie shows a trip to Europe made aboard the battleship USS Missouri BB-63 sometime in the mid to late 1940s or early 1950s. Most likely this journey likely occurred in March of 1946, as Missouri visited Turkey in April of that year. It also could have been shot in 1951, because in the summer of that year she engaged in two midshipman training cruises to northern Europe.

    The start of the film shows various views of the ship and its escorts, including USS Damato (DD-871), a Gearing class destroyer. It also shows the surrender plaque aboard the ship at about :25 seconds.

    At 2:30, the trip to Europe begins with a train ride through France to Paris, and there are various scenes of the city including images of the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral, railroad stations, etc. Versailles is seen in a color segment at 7:00, and the Eiffel Tower at 8:00. At 11:30, Le Mont-Saint-Michel is seen. At 13 minutes, the trip aboard the Missouri has resumed. At 13:23, ships company takes a swim. The ship is seen in an unknown port at the end of the film, and anchor is dropped as the film ends.

    UNDERWATER EXPLOSIVE RESEARCH U.S. NAVY TECHNICAL REPORT on FILM 52074
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Feb 8, 2017
    An “unclassified” color film "Look Down, Too" is a Bureau of Ships Technical Report produced by the US Navy during the 1960s, and is meant to show how researchers are working toward creating more blast-resistant surface ships and submarines. Although current defense efforts focus skyward on aircraft, missiles, and “outer space,” the film encourages the viewer to “Look Down, Too” as the title card flashes on the screen at mark 01:03. There are scenes of submarines and destroyers as the narrator explains how the US Navy is a vital part of defense systems. But if a submarine or cargo ship is sunk? Protecting against such a catastrophic event is the job of the Underwater Explosions Research Division at the David Taylor Model Basin — a test facilities for the development of ship design in Maryland (mark 02:22). Engineers, physicists, mathematicians, and architects are shown hunched over plans as they conduct analyses of underwater explosions and experiments. As the film progresses, it details five areas of investigation: what happens in the water during an underwater explosion, the response of submarine hulls, the machinery onboard submarines, the machinery on surface ships, and structural response of surface ships to a blast. First, the film visits the Underwater Explosions Barge, or UEB-1 (mark 04:10), a civilian-operated station. The camera offers viewers a look inside the barge with an explanation of some of the equipment and facilities. At mark 05:54 there is a explanation of the various instrumentation used on targets and at mark 07:11 begins an explanation of “underwater explosion phenomena” featuring images of both the surface effects and “an actual underwater explosion” (mark 07:26). There are scenes testing a submarine hull beginning at mark 08:03 as the vessel is shown lowered beneath the water and then raised and examined following an explosion, followed by a look at a sub’s machinery and images of how various pieces of equipment withstand blasts. Machinery on surface ships is looked at starting at mark 10:42 as pieces are rocked by explosions, with a look at hull breaches coming at mark 13:22 as obsolete ships are used for target practice. Damage is examined and photographed for use in further tests. As the film nears its close, project engineers are shown starting at mark 17:50 examine the data.

    The David Taylor Model Basin (DTMB) is one of the largest ship model basins—test facilities for the development of ship design—in the world. DTMB is a field activity of the Carderock Division of the Naval Surface Warfare Center.

    WWII U.S. COAST GUARD EXPLOSIVE HANDLING & STOWAGE INSTRUCTIONAL FILM 51534
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jan 28, 2017
    This black-and-white circa 1943 United States Coast Guard training film is titled “Explosives” and not surprisingly covers precisely that topic, beginning with the “handling, stowage, and transportation of explosives as cargo onboard merchant vessels” both foreign and domestic when in a US port (mark 00:20). Several ships are shown on the waters as the narrator reiterates that goal and the importance of safely getting such devices into combat areas during World War II. As the film continues we see crates of small-arms ammunition as well as ammo for aircraft and machine guns, anti-tank ammunition, incendiary devices, hand grenades, and several other explosive devices. Originating in arsenals, ammunition depots, and manufacturing plants (mark 02:25), the explosives eventually make their way to vessels where a manifest and stowage permits are required. At mark 04:13 we see ammunition being carefully loaded aboard a merchant vessel and stored before the ships leave port, while the narrator explains the importance of proper communication to ensure safety.

    The structure of Liberty ships (a class of cargo ship) is illustrated starting at mark 06:36 along with several minutes of extremely detailed explanation of how explosive cargo should be loaded, and the function of each part of the vessel. By mark 16:25 the film returns to live action and further explanation of how a ship carrying explosives must be checked to make sure it is in compliance with rules and regulations, especially for safety. Crews are shown cleaning ships and piers before loading longshoremen (mark 17:14) who have been specially trained to handle explosives, while it is the duty of the Coast Guard to protect ships against sabotage.

    The U.S. Navy Wants to Build a Super Frigate
    New Update Defence



    Published on Apr 13, 2017
    The U.S. Navy Wants to Build a Super Frigate

    The Navy is exploring the possibility of adding Local Air Defenses, new weapons and enhanced protection technology to its requirements for a new Frigate slated to emerge in the early 2020s.

    While the new Frigate was conceived of as a more survivable adaptation of the Littoral Combat Ship, new analysis is no longer restricted to the idea of loosely basing the "hull design" upon the LCS. Furthermore, new requirements analysis underway by a Navy Frigate Requirements Evaluation Team is examining the feasibility of making the ship even more lethal and survivable than what previous plans called for.

    IS US SUPER-CARRIER CARL VINSON UNSINKABLE ? UNBIASED ANALYSIS
    Defense Updates



    Published on Apr 16, 2017
    INTRODUCTION:

    On April 10 the US Navy’s Carl Vinson strike group suddenly changed course from Australia to the Korean Peninsula amid concerns that North Korea could soon conduct its 6th nuclear test or more missile launches.

    USS Carl Vinson is one of the most powerful weapons platform in the world, being 3 football fields long, having a displacement of 100000 tonnes, and is capable of carrying more than 60 strike aircrafts.

    It must be noted that, USS Carl Vinson is not alone, but it leads the US Navy Carrier Strike Group One.
    It is accompanied by other vessels including an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, the USS Wayne E Meyer (DDG 108). Arleigh Burke class is considered to be one of the most potent destroyers in the world.
    It is also expected to be accompanied by 1 or 2 submarines, though details are classified.

    Let us analyze if USS Carl Vinson aided by the other vessels of the strike group is unsinkable or not.


    ATTACK BY AIRCRAFT:

    Traditional but this method has been effective. In case of conflict, USS Carl Vinson will certainly be coming under attack from enemy bombers or fighters.
    Here Carl Vinson can use its own aircrafts to meet the challenge. Carl Vinson has F 18 Hornets and F 18 Super Hornets to engage enemy aircrafts. It will also deploy F 35 in near future. It will be aided by 1 or 2 Awacs for long distance target detection apart from its own high performance radars.

    Aegis air defense system will also provide cover and is capable of mounting strong defense.
    It can be safely assumed, the carrier group is capable of strong and aggressive retaliation against attack by aircrafts, and should be able to thwart it.


    TORPEDOES FROM SUBMARINES

    Modern torpedoes can achieve speeds in excess of 40 knots and operate at depths of 400 m. These can have range of 40 to 50 km, and carry 250 to 500 lb high explosive warhead.

    The warhead size may be not so large, but the important thing is that a torpedo will hit a surface vessel below its waterline. Though aircraft carriers and large surface vessels have system of compartments, to seal off parts which is damaged, a single hit in delicate region like propeller area can have a crippling effect.

    USS Carl Vinson does have Kevlar protection to minimize damages, but against an enemy submarine, its biggest defense will be its own submarine escort. Every US carrier group has submarines to detect and hunt enemy submarines.
    Also, USS Carl Vinson will have cover from P-8 Poseidon. The P-8 is specially designed to conduct anti-submarine warfare and will keep scanning the waters in the vicinity of the aircraft carrier with its specialized equipments.

    So it can be concluded that, there will be no easy way to target USS Carl Vinson with torpedo, but will required deployment of multiple submarines with proper strategy.

    CRUISE MISSIE:

    Cruise missiles are by far the most potent threat to an aircraft carrier like Carl Vinson. Cruise missile tends to be versatile have the ability to be launched from different platforms like surface vessels or land. These also have the range to be launched from far off and are relatively cheaper when compared with an aircraft carrier, hence can be fired in large numbers to saturate the enemy defenses.

    In between the cruise missile and the carrier will be US's state of art Aegis Air Defense System.

    Here are 3 most lethal weapon in this category and how they are expected to perform:
    1. Russian 3M14 Kalibr is equivalent to the American tomahawk cruise missile in many parameters such as range, warhead and propulsion.
    It has a 2500 km range, a 450 kg high-explosive warhead and has a speed of 0.8 mach.
    The Kalibr is highly maneuverable, but lacks speed, and is expected to be intercepted by the Carrier Group’s Aegis system. Even if 1 to 2 missile is not intercepted, they will not to be able to deliver lethal blow to a super carrier like Carl Vinson.
    2. Indo Russian Brahmos is currently the most formidable challenge to a carrier like USS Carl Vinson. It has speed of 2.8 to 3 Mach, range of more that 450 km and is highly maneuverable. Being supersonic, it has almost 16 times the Kinetic energy of a missile like Kalibr or Tomahawk. Brahmos is known to break ships in half in test scenarios. Since it is so fast, the Aegis defense system will find it difficult to intercept, specially if it faces a barrage of 4 to 8 Brahmos .
    The result is hard to predict, but can be concluded to being 50 50.
    3. Russia’s 3M22 Zircon hypersonic cruise missile is expected to enter production in 2018. The new weapon—which is capable of speeds of around Mach 6 is currently in testing.

    Monstrously Powerful Tomahawk Cruise Missiles Launched from US Navy Destroyers
    War Clashes



    Published on May 26, 2017
    The guided-missile destroyer USS Arleigh Burke (DDG 51), USS Stout (DDG-55), guided missile cruiser USS Philippine Sea (CG-58) launches Tomahawk Land-Attack Missiles.

    The Tomahawk Land Attack Missile (TLAM) is a long-range, all-weather, subsonic cruise missile that is primarily used by the United States Navy and Royal Navy in ship and submarine-based land-attack operations. Introduced by General Dynamics in the 1970s, it was initially designed as a medium to long-range, low-altitude missile that could be launched from a surface platform. Since then, it has been upgraded several times with guidance systems for precision navigation. It is now manufactured by Raytheon. In 2016, the U.S. Department of Defense purchased 149 Tomahawk Block IV missiles for $202.3 million.

    The missile is named after the tomahawk, a one-handed axe used by the Native Americans.
