Navy`s new Ship

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by huffnut_cringe, Aug 19, 2007.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. There was an article and picture of the RN`s new warship in todays Mail on Sunday (HMS Dairing) the Mail calls it HMS Unisex as its complement will eventually consist of 50% WRNS, a very good ballance for fun deployments don`t you think?
    "The awesome fire power consistes of advanced radar and missile systems able to spread a protected umbrella hundreds of miles wide. the ship can track more than 1,000 air targets at once and destroy a missile the size of a cricket ball flying at three times the speed of sound."
    Wow!, with one of those down the Falklands the Navy could have won the war single handed. But tradition never lets go and it looks like solitary 4.5 on the bow, there again it could be a super dupa vaccum cleaner to hover up the wrecks of all the aircraft it shoots down. Is this the information the Navy spins to the press, or do the papers just make it as they go along?
  2. spin, badly designed flightdeck & hanger.
  3. Just like the Norfolk's being first in class perhaps
  4. Then of course as it escorts the yet to have plate laid CV's it will need its own AS escort cos they have not given it any AS weapons.


  5. IKARA system may do. sure there are a few left loafing about. ONLY JOKING :pukel: :pukel: :pukel:

    I am well out of date these days but isnt the helicopter ASW? My point is if the new ship can provide a protective cover hundreds of miles wide and track and shoot down 1,000 air targets at once have we got any need for new carriers and air squadrons? What the Navy should have leaked out to the press was.... this ship is a load of crap, same as all our other ones and if we dont get our carriers pronto we will be in deep shit, if the MOD bods read something like that the carriers would be in service before you could say Jack Robinson

    There was a lady sailors picture (Commander)in the same article with a job desciption of logistics director, would this be a modern job title for supply officer?
  8. What about attack and ground force support capability? You expecting PAAMS to do that as well?
  9. There's a big stick with nails should the need arise
  10. Was supposed to have an armoured flight deck and hangar door, anyone know if either materialised?
  11. Is it correct that bidets are also installed in the wren’s heads, sorry I meant toilets? TFMB!
  12. Good for keeping the rain from stopping play at Lords then! ;)
  13. Ho Ho Ho

    Anti Submarine Torpedo

    I know that! It was what we used to called 'em... 'cos it went underwater it was heading to Australia!
  15. Another thread over on the Waffoos page stated that these helicopter only carry lightb weapons which they state would only damage and not sink a SSN. Of course if the helo is non serviceable, the pilot sick or the weather to bad for flying then no A/S weapon who's effectiveness is debatable. Sounds it bit like eggs and one basket.

    After the T Class SSN's are scrapped we may only have 4 Astutes. With the best will in the world only one will be operational so will that be tied to Task Force defence or on other operations.

  16. Task force defense? with only one ship 'cos the carriers? never got built?

    OK they (the Admirality are saying yes we'll have them but there again, it's a bit like telling the 5 year old that 'of course he can have a new all singing all dancing go cart' (well you don't intend to give it to him, cost to much but it will keep him quiet for the next few months whilst he changes his mind)

    And today THE NAVY's new ship is just sailing for the Falklands according to the 'Metro' (the Clyde) now that's about our present standard - and it ACTUALLY exists - I can relate to that!
