When did you realize that the Amerimutt meme has all the hallmarks of ADL/IDF demoralization tactics and the insidious cleverness of the Jew as an adept at Narcissistic projection as a whole? What they are showing you is what they want to be reality and they insist that It's already manifest. Note how it also comes coupled with the declaration: "Amerimutts won't do shit!" Or "You won't do shit!" It's not only an attempt to attack the ideals that they see us adopting and one that they would have us affect us to the point of defeatist helplessness while they continue to attempt to destroy others. Such is a characteristic trait of the low and perverse mindset of the Jew and their level of focus and projection of their truly grotesque and vindictive form of subtle Racism. In their minds, there is always a bigger, stronger party looming over them with a sharpened knife and the Jew is so compelled to live in that state that their only sense of empowerment comes in acting out role-reversal upon others. Yet in order to do that, they must attack Infants and Children and can only feel the same effect of dominance over Adults in Infantilization of them. The Amerimutt-Meme shows those exact traits but also has characteristics of a fat, elderly Jew. Because of the Jews own buried self-loathing, we'll always find those baroque Grotesquerian traits in common in their propaganda. Yet for all they have done to assail us, they are failing and wasting away in their own hatred and Genetic-Bottleneck as their abominable intentions become more and more undeniable. Stay strong, do not be afraid to name them as the Wicked Failures they made themselves into.

It underwent repairs at Guam for damage assessment and to stabilise it. Full scale repairs back to operational capability, which needs to be done at Portsmouth will need hundreds of millions. If the cost to repair it exceeds the value of its remaining lifespan the USN will scrap it, like they did the USS Miami.

It'll be very expensive. The USN doesn't have entirely front sections and sonars lying around.

Funny thing about this, it was displayed as part of an exposition in other words some company is looking to export a version of it. There was a thread here, tl;dr /k/ didn't understand what they were then.

The rail requirement I guess territorial security, missile recovery, possibly because of a targeting requirement for absolute positional precision but barges can have very good position correction. Note there was also a barge version shown at the expo pic related.

So what nation is going to purchase (import, even) a mobile ship analog for ECCM and target purposes? If you're testing missiles.. maybe. Its a different world for sure.

America, you no longer have the shipbuilding capability to replace all your subs in a reasonable time. Nobody has it since the end of the Cold War. All Cold War submarines are about to reach the end of their service in the next couple of years. The next few years will be about attempting to extending the service as much as everybody can.

>>
>>51188794

Yes, there will be a shortage of subs over next two decades. The Navy has, for years, known that it could suffer an attack-boat shortage. The submarine shortage is the result of a long break in U.S. submarine production in the immediate aftermath of the Cold War. The fleet received just five new SSNs between 1990 and 1999.

Despite the Navy purchasing two new Virginias every year on average since 2012, the 10-sub gap is likely to widen in the 2020s as older Los Angeles boats, which the Navy bought at high rates during the 1980s and 1990s, reach the end of their useful service lives.
>>
>>51188820
Kek, you just googled "USN submarine gap" and copied from the first article (which was from 2028).

The gap applies to attack boats and is being closed by the Virginia class and life extensions of the Los Angeles pending the introduction of their new class. Current projections are for the fleet to drop to 52 by the end of this decade and then grew to 68 by the 2040s
>>
>>51188859

>>51188859

As, I've said. They needed to extend the service time of subs because there's no way the US can replace all of them.

The boat will gets fixed up like the other which was damaged years ago. It was safe enough to get back to port, it's worth repairing.

If they scrap the sub, then they deserve to have their budget cut. They obviously are incapable of making financially informed decisions.

The modern US navy is quickly falling into a state of mismanagement and disrepair due to low morale, poor leadership, over diversification, and upper brass involving themselves financially in the defense industry. We’re paying out the ass to finance these assholes who make poor decisions again and again.

Let's see, designed 1983, launched 1997 so 25 years active service.

Virginia class subs are newer, better and cost $2b each.
Seems about right to me. If they weren't considering this it would probably warrant a congressional investigation into waste and fraud

Virginia class can't dive nearly as deep and have half the torpedo tubes. The seawolf also has larger torpedo tubes though no one even knows why. The seawolf might also have classified advantages in speed and other features.

Improved Akula and Yassen can potentially troll LA and Virginia classes by lurking around twice as deep.

>>51191623
It's not that simple. The entire front part needs to be replaced including the sonar. That's going to be costly. Only Puget and Portsmouth can do it, and both are very full overhauling, building and recycling nuclear subs. It'll be a cost benefit question. The damaged sub has a finite lifespan. To fix it they either need to get Congress to give them more money - which would open a Congressional inquiry into the accident and be publicly humilating, for no guarantee of success. Or they can take the money from another sub program, delaying its construction.

If the cost is too high, in the case of the USS Miami and Bonhomme, it will be scrapped.
>>
>>51194487
Turns out we don't need 8 torpedo tubes after all.
> speed
Virginia-class is 1000 short tons lighter than the Seawolf-class with the exact same powerplant. No way it's not faster
>Akula
They stopped building Seawolfs because competent operation of Akula-class boats vanished overnight, and to date, only the Russians and the Indians have them, so it's not really a concern
