https://warisboring.com/the-royal-n...be-bigger-and-quieter-dfacf45ea455#.p4xcl35ruThe United Kingdom has started production on its new Successor-class ballistic missile submarines.
The four new boats will be the largest submarines ever built for the Royal Navy — displacing 17,200 tons with a length of around 502 feet — but they will only have 12 missile tubes rather than the 16 found aboard the current Vanguard class.
The new boomers will also share technology with their U.S. Navy counterparts — the Columbia-class Ohio Replacement Program SSBNs — using a common missile compartment, or CMC, design. Once completed, the new boomers will enter service in the 2030s.

An internet outage expert at U.S. internet monitor Dyn, along with several Twitter users and bloggers, believe that a secretive Russian navy spy ship may be tapping and disrupting underwater cables in the Mediterranean Sea that feed internet to Syria.
While telecommunications experts argue that this isn’t likely, several factors have aligned that seem to support this theory.
On ollut pieni kiire muiden asioiden kanssa, mutta tässä yksi.
Älkää nyt vaan väittäkö että Kuznetsov sauhuaa sinne rannikolle, ankkuroituu ja "vahingossa" katkoo tietyt kuitukaapelit...Jotenkin tuntuu että asia ei ole kaapelista kiinni vaan jostain aivan muusta heidän tuodessa lisää aluksia alueelle. Briteillä on aivan vieressä kuunteluasema, iipoilla sama ja niin edelleen. Henkilökohtaisesti odotan jotakin muuta kuin kaapelin kanssa kikkailua.
http://zeenews.india.com/news/world...ery-of-two-submarines-from-china_1949705.htmlBangladesh navy chief Admiral Nizamuddin Ahmed received the submarines during a ceremony at Liao Nan Shipyard in Liaoning province`s Dalian city, according to an Inter Services Public Relation Directorate release, the Dhaka Tribune reported.
The type 035G class submarines will become part of the country`s naval fleet at the beginning of next year. The submarines will be named BNS Nabajatra and BNS Joyjatra respectively.
Bangladesh is reported to have paid over $203 million for the two submarines.
Bangladesh had ordered the two boats from China in 2013. The Bangladesh Navy was originally keen on buying S 20 and Type 039 Song class submarine, which costs $250 million per boat, but decided on the Ming class submarines due to budget limitation.
The Ming class submarine is developed from Russian Romeo Class submarine of the `50s which has been extensively modified by the Chinese. The Romeo Class boat in turn was based on the German Type XXI submarine of World War II.50s which has been extensively modified by the Chinese. The Romeo Class boat in turn was based on the German Type XXI submarine of World War II.
These diesel-electric submarines displace 2,110 tons and have a surfaced endurance of 8,000 nm allowing them to stay at sea for about 60 days. They are manned by a crew of 57 personnel and carry 18 torpedoes with an option for carrying 32 mines also, according to reports.
In all likelihood, Chinese crew, though in a small number, could be present on these submarines to guide the Bangladesh crew through the initial stages of operations.
The Chinese are also likely to be involved in setting up the shore infrastructure like repair yards, training facilities and operational support establishments for smooth conduct of submarine operations.
Xi Jinping last month became the first Chinese president in 30 years to visit Bangladesh, which has historically been more closely allied to rival regional power India.
Bangladesh tilasi modernisoituja/peruskorjattuja Ming-luokan (Tyyppi-035) sukelluspaatteja joita käyttävät harjoitteluun sekä tutustuvat niiden käyttöön. Ei ole mitään halpaa lystiä ikivanhojen harjoistuspaattien ostaminenkaan.
https://warisboring.com/russian-min...a-full-sized-submarine-bb493613a13#.2odxax2xgRussia’s Rubin design bureau is working on developing a miniature autonomous unmanned submarine that would be used to replicate the characteristics of a full-sized submarine.
Called the Surrogat, the new underwater drone will do exactly what its name suggests — it will imitate the sound of an enemy submarine during naval exercises.
“Today, combat submarines have to be involved for exercises or tests and this practice distracts them from carrying out their basic missions. The use of an unmanned imitator will help avoid this and cut the cost of drills,” Rubin chief executive officer Igor Vilnit told the Moscow-based TASS news agency.
“Besides, a submarine without a crew reduces risks while keeping simulated scenarios realistic. This apparatus will be distinguished by its simplicity in operation and the low cost of its maintenance and upgrade. Now we’re holding consultations with Navy representatives to make the imitator fully meet the Navy’s requirements.”
According to TASS, the Surrogat will be a modular design that will be able to replicate the acoustical characteristic of a nuclear or diesel-electric boat. The robotic sub will carry a host of towed arrays sonars and other features to help replicate a full-sized boat’s acoustic and electromagnetic signature, according to the Rubin design bureau.
Surrogat also appears to have some capability for conducting surveillance missions independent of its role of being an aggressor platform.
The Surrogat will measure roughly 56 feet long and is expected to displace about 40 tons. The vessel is being designed with a cruising range of about 600 miles at a speed of five knots. With its lithium-ion battery, it is expected to have an endurance of roughly 16 hours.
The Russians claim that it will have a maximum speed of over 24 knots and the maximum diving depth of nearly 2,000 feet.
Sainpa sitten perjantaina käytyä Forum Marinumissa kun ajattelin että vuodenvaihteeseen jatkunut sukellusveneitä käsittelevä erikoisnäyttely olisi näkemisen arvoinen. Eipä ollut kummoinen. Siis se suvenäyttely. Parasta antia oli Vesikon uloskäynnin kohdalta purettu paskimo. Muutoin museo on kyllä komia. Kesällä uusiksi kun laivat ovat auki.
