La classe San Antonio a peut etre un look futuristique, mais par contre l'interieur...

Voyez par vous meme:

1- Bon les fuites de partout a la limite, ca peut arriver... erreur de conception. Surtout pour une "tete de serie"

2- Mais quand meme! L'interieur on dirait un navire des annees 80 voire pire! (certain ont dit WWII sur un forum).

Ah, ben je comprends maintenant pourquoi sur un navire de 200m de long (à peine plus long que le Mistral), plus léger de 4000 tonnes que le mistral il ya exactement 2 fois plus d'équipage : c'est pour la maintenance !

Forcément, la mécanique c'est pas du MTU ou du rolls-royce ! ça fait quand même pitié pour la marine américaine !

In late August, on the eve of its maiden deployment, San Antonio was stuck at the pier for two days with a broken stern gate while the rest of the Iwo Jima Expeditionary Strike Group got underway. That was the latest in a string of performance problems with a ship that was delivered late and at $1.8 billion, $1 billion higher than planned. A July 2005 inspection report made clear the first ship of the LPD 17 class would have perpetual problems.

Inspectors found “poor construction and craftsmanship ... throughout the ship,” and officials singled out problems with wiring. “Poor initial cable-pulling practice led to what is now a snarled, over-packed, poorly assembled and virtually uncorrectable electrical/electronic cable plant,” the report said.

Its condition — along with another poor performance in 2007 — prompted Navy Secretary Donald Winter to publicly chide shipbuilder Northrop Grumman, saying the fleet “still does not have a mission-capable ship” two years after delivery.

Now in the Persian Gulf, San Antonio needs an extra-long pit stop for a problem that was foreshadowed in the July 2005 inspection report. “Lube oil temperature regulating valves in the main propulsion diesel engine (MPDE) lube oil systems were improperly set. Incorrectly regulated MPDE engine lube oil temperature prevented the ship from making full power for a sustained period.”

1.8 milliards de $ le LPD ?!?!?

sont complétement cinglés ces américains...

C'est même plus cher que le Cavour italien, qui est un navire autrement plus équipé et armé...

Oui enfin selon l'article le prix ne "devait" etre que de 800 millions, il a pris un milliard en trop...

Le Cavour n'a pas de radier ces navires ne sont pas comparables.

Pas mal d'innovations techniques sur le San Antonio avec la mature intégrant les RADAR...

Ce qui est étrange concernant la qualité de la réalisation jugée "poor" c'est que les chantier Northrop Grumman d'Avondale ont sorti de nombreux navires récents notamment les Harpers Ferry et les Whitbey Islands...

Ce sont des navires câblés en fibre optique

Problems persist for USS San Antonio (LPD-17) the lead ship in a new generation of amphibious transport docks built for the US Marines.

A team of forty maintenance workers have been sent to the Gulf, and are helping to rectify faults on the ship, which is now in Bahrain.

Imaginez le CdeG ou meme un BPC coincer a Barhain pour les meme raison... Imaginez ce qu'on prendrait sur les forums!!! O0
