    Por un F/A-18E/F de $ 94 millones, la Marina obtiene 6.000 horas de operación, con una vida útil de aproximadamente 16 años. El costo de operación publicado es de $ 10,507 por hora, pero eso no cuenta para las partes, mano de obra y soporte administrativo para ejecutar un escuadrón, ala aérea, transportista, etc., por lo que el costo de soporte ronda aproximadamente $ 20,000 por hora. También no incluido son los $ 15,000 de la vida útil de cada hora. Todo suma hasta $ 45,000 por hora de vuelo para que un piloto de combate patee los neumáticos y encienda los motores.

    "Eccetera, perché la minestra si fredda": (Codice Arundel, fol. 245 recto)
    Hola Solothurn. Claramente el artículo marca algo que en el foro siempre se debate a la hora de hablar de candidatos para reemplazar a los M-III. El último párrafo describe perfectamente todas las variantes que hacen al resultado final del costo por hora de vuelo.
    Imaginen esos precios en un país que no produce componentes críticos, su flota es pequeña (menos de 12), y depende de su proveedor "confiable" el suministro de repuestos. Es por eso que, el precio final del costo por operar un sistema de armas siempre será diferente en cada país.

    To Fix TacAir Pilot Retention, Follow the Money
    Por Lieutenant Commander Anthony Kochanski, U.S. Navy
    Proceedings Magazine - January 2018 Vol. 144/1/1,379

    Excelente articulo y técnicamente bien descripto los costos de adiestramiento, carrera, retención y operación de un piloto TacAir. Muy recomendable.
    Fragmento;

    En 1996, el costo de vuelo de un F/A-18E/F fue de $ 48 millones (aproximadamente $ 76 millones ajustados a 2017). Hoy, la Marina paga $ 94.5 millones, aunque con mejoras limitadas de aeronaves. Eso es un premiun del 66 por ciento sobre la inflación.

    Por un F/A-18E/F de $ 94 millones, la Marina obtiene 6.000 horas de operación, con una vida útil de aproximadamente 16 años. El costo de operación publicado es de $ 10,507 por hora, pero eso no cuenta para las partes, mano de obra y soporte administrativo para ejecutar un escuadrón, ala aérea, transportista, etc., por lo que el costo de soporte ronda aproximadamente $ 20,000 por hora.

    30 oficiales de la Armada de EE UU, acusados de dejarse corromper con sobornos, prostitutas y Dom Pérignon

    El sumario del mayor caso de cohecho en la Marina de guerra de EE UU revela cómo un proveedor logró información secreta y contratos con sexo y lujos


    EL PAÍS - J. M. AHRENS - Washington 2 FEB 2018 -



    De izquierda a derecha, los almirantes Terry Kraft, Michael Miller, and David Pimpo.

    El Gordo Leonard tenía un olfato mágico. Un don especial para corromper todo lo que tocaba. Con 180 kilos de peso y una sed de oro insaciable, Leonard Glenn Francis, de 53 años, logró crear un pequeño imperio empresarial hundiendo en el fango a la mismísima Armada de Estados Unidos. Desde 2006 a 2013 recibió información secreta de alto nivel y contratos militares gracias a una vertiginosa concatenación de bacanales que él personalmente organizaba para los orgullosos oficiales de la Navy. Carruseles de prostitutas asiáticas, cenas de 50.000 dólares en suites de hoteles de máximo lujo, sobornos en efectivo de 120.000 dólares, relojes Ulysee Nardin de 25.000, botellas de coñac de 2.000, cajas de cohíbas… Incansable, las prácticas de El Gordo Leonard, como le llamaban los marinos, han derivado en el mayor escándalo de la historia de la fuerza naval estadounidense: 30 oficiales y marinos han sido acusados y 60 almirantes investigados (2 de ellos imputados y 6 sancionados).



    Loenard Glenn Francis con un almirante no imputado.


    El sumario, cuyos detalles ha revelado ahora The Washington Post, muestra el asombroso cóctel de sexo y basura del que se sirvió Glenn para su negocio. La trama era sencilla. Su compañía, radicada en Singapur, se dedicaba a la logística y su objetivo era prestar servicio a la Navy. Para ello, nada mejor que conocer sus rutas y necesidades. Y también a su puente de mando.

    La infiltración tuvo como blanco preferente el USS Blue Ridge. De 190 metros de eslora, es el buque insignia de la VII Flota. Controla las operaciones en Asia y el Pacífico oriental. 70 barcos y submarinos, 300 aviones y 40.000 efectivos. La mayor fuerza naval de EEUU. Un inmenso negocio.

    En un primer paso, Glenn cultivó la amistad de un puñado de oficiales con los que trataba habitualmente como proveedor. Hombre conocido por su buen humor y sus maneras fáciles, no tardó en hallarles el punto débil. Y a partir de ahí fue extendiendo la telaraña.

    Solo para los oficiales del Blue Ridge, la fiscalía ha descubierto que organizó 45 orgías y gastó más de un millón de dólares en comidas, licores, cohíbas, entradas a conciertos y trajes a medida. La confianza era tal, que cuando el buque insignia llegaba a puerto, ahí les esperaba Glenn con su limusina y el Dom Pérignon. Lo que venía después era pura adrenalina.

    Las juergas, siempre según el sumario, podían durar dos días y se celebraban en hoteles de cinco estrellas, como el Shangri-La, de Hong Kong, o el histórico Manila, en la capital de Filipinas, donde se alojó en los años treinta el general Douglas MacArthur. “Aquello era una locura, no parábamos de beber”, ha declarado un comandante.

    El primer acto consistía en una cena o comida en los mejores restaurantes. Luego, apartaba a los marinos de las miradas indiscretas y se los llevaba a otro escenario. Podía ser la suite presidencial o el helipuerto del hotel. Entraban entonces en acción lo que Glenn llamaba sus “cuerpos de operaciones especiales”. Cuadrillas de prostitutas y strippers de China, Indonesia, Rusia, Mongolia o Filipinas que acudían por oleadas. Era lo que llamaban el carrusel.

    Había pocos límites. Y la degradación del puente de mando del USS Blue Ridgefue en aumento. Algunos oficiales no tenían recato en pedirle dinero prestado para sus deudas, y otros se volvieron prácticamente sus espías. Le facilitaban los movimientos de la VII Flota, le concedían contratas de repostaje, reparación y suministro, cambiaban los itinerarios para atracar en los puertos donde él ofrecía servicio y hasta le avisaban de la presencia de inspectores.

    Tal era la fama de sus fiestas que entre los marinos se le pasó a conocer como Leonard La Leyenda. Pero la gangrena no pasó inadvertida. La frecuencia con que la VII Flota facturaba a su compañía empezó a levantar sospechas. En 2010 se abrió una investigación secreta y tres años después la fiscalía le capturó en San Diego. No tardó en confesar. Ahora, está a la espera de juicio y se enfrenta a 25 años de cárcel. Entre los marinos, aunque 20 de los 30 imputados se han declarado culpables, las sospechas siguen sin apagarse. Hubo demasiada corrupción durante demasiado tiempo.

    El USS Wasp de la US Navy llega a Japón con los F-35B embarcados

    HISPAVIACIÓN - 19-01-2018

    El buque anfibio de la US Navy llega su base en Japón teniendo embarcados a los F-35B Lightning II t marcando así una nueva etapa que lleve a una salida operacional del buque y las aeronaves a finales de este año. F-35B USS WaspUn F-35B Lightning II despegando del USS Wasp. Foto: Cpl. Anne K. Henry/U.S. Marine Corps

    El buque llegó a la base de la Séptima Flota en Sasebo después de una singladura de más de 28.400 millas náuticas desde Norfolk, Virginia, y después de haber estado proporcionando ayuda humanitaria en los desastres por los huracanes en el Caribe, en cuya campaña el buque movió un total de 1,129 pasajeros junto a más de 12 toneladas de equipos y más de 770.000 kilos de diversos artículos de apoyo logístico, incluyendo 148.820 kilos de alimentos y agua.

    Según comentó el Capitán Colby Howard, “Junto a los F-35B Joint Strike Fighter, estamos preparados para ejecutar toda gama de operaciones militares, desde respuesta a crisis hasta el socorro en casos de desastre.”

    El Wasp se preparará ahora para la próxima salida de patrulla programada a finales de año con la 31ª Unidad Expedicionaria de la Marina basada en Okinawa y con el F-35B del Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 121, que se trasladó a Iwakuni, Japón, a principios del pasado año 2017. Este escuadrón es la primera unidad operacional del Cuerpo de Marines con F-35B y actualmente cuenta con 16 aeronaves basados en Iwakuni.

    Los F-35B sustituyen a los destacamentos rotativos de AV-8B Harrier II que se desplazan a Okinawa bajo el Programa de Despliegue de Unidades de los Marines (UDP). El último destacamento de Harrier UDP finalizó en agosto del 2017, regresando en vuelo a EEUU desde Australia tras haber participado en el ejercicio Talisman Saber.

    Destroyer USS Benfold Damaged After Collision with Japanese Tug

    By: Sam LaGrone
    November 18, 2017 12:56 PM


    USS Benfold (DDG-65) and Republic of Singapore Navy’s (RSN) RSS Endurance (LST 207), participate in a PHOTOEX during Exercise Pacific Griffin 2017. US Navy Photo


    The guided-missile destroyer USS Benfold (DDG-65) was hit by a Japanese tug during a towing exercise on Saturday, according to a statement from U.S. 7th Fleet.

    The forward-deployed destroyer was in the midst of a towing exercise in the Sagami Bay when the tug lost power and, “drifted into the ship.”

    “No one was injured on either vessel and Benfold sustained minimal damage, including scrapes on its side, pending a full damage assessment. Benfold remains at sea under her own power,” read the statement from 7th Fleet.
    “The Japanese commercial tug is being towed by another vessel to a port in Yokosuka. The incident will be investigated.”

    The incident comes as the Navy is struggling with the aftermath of two fatal collisions between merchant ships and the destroyers USS Fitzgerald (DDG-62) and USS John S. McCain (DDG-56) that claimed the lives of 17 sailors. The Navy found both incidents were preventable.

    The Navy is instituting changes found in a fleet-wide comprehensive review of the surface navy that was released in early November. A strategic review of U.S. surface forces, led by the Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer, is due out early next month.

    The following is the complete statement from U.S, 7th Fleet.

    YOKOSUKA, Japan (Nov. 18, 2017) The guided-missile destroyer USS Benfold (DDG 65) was participating in a scheduled towing exercise in Sagami Wan Nov. 18, when the tug boat lost propulsion and drifted into the ship.

    No one was injured on either vessel and Benfold sustained minimal damage, including scrapes on its side, pending a full damage assessment. Benfold remains at sea under her own power. The Japanese commercial tug is being towed by another vessel to a port in Yokosuka. The incident will be investigated.

    Benfold is forward deployed to the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations in support of security and stability in the Indo-Asia- Pacific.

    Video del USS Triton (SSRN-586) en su viaje alrededor del mundo



    This film made by General Dynamics shows the cruise of the submarine USS Triton (SSRN-586) around the world (underwater) in 1960. Triton was one of the largest submarines of its era and equipped with twin nuclear reactors. The circumnavigation of the world, codenamed Operation Sandblast, was conducted under the command of famous submariner Edward L. Beach. This color film details life aboard Triton during that epochal trip, and shows its triumphant homecoming, including a visit from President Dwight Eisenhower. Triton was to be used as a radar picket submarine, but problems related to its design meant that it was eventually relegated to use as a command vessel, and then ingloriously decommissioned a mere ten years after its first cruise.

    The actual submerged circumnavigation occurred between 24 February and 25 April 1960, covering 26,723 nautical miles (49,491 km; 30,752 mi) in 60 days and 21 hours at the average speed of 18 knots (33 km/h; 21 mph) while crossing the Equator on four different occasions. Also, the total duration of Triton's shakedown cruise was 84 days 19 hours 8 minutes, covering 36,335.1 nautical miles (67,292.6 km; 41,813.7 mi), and Triton remained submerged for a total of 83 days 9 hours, covering 35,979.1 nautical miles (66,633.3 km; 41,404.0 mi) during her maiden voyage. The New York Times described Triton's submerged circumnavigation of the world as "a triumph of human prowess and engineering skill, a feat which the United States Navy can rank as one of its bright victories in man's ultimate conquest of the seas."

    Although official celebrations for Operation Sandblast were cancelled following the diplomatic furor arising from the shooting down of a CIA U-2 spy plane over the Soviet Union in early May 1960, the Triton did receive the Presidential Unit Citation with a special clasp in the form of a golden replica of the globe in recognition of the successful completion of its mission, and Captain Beach received the Legion of Merit for his role as Triton's commanding officer. In 1961, Beach received the Magellanic Premium, the United States' oldest and most prestigious scientific award, from the American Philosophical Society in "recognition of his navigation of the U.S. submarine Triton around the globe."

    USS Triton (SSRN/SSN-586), a United States Navy radar picket nuclear submarine, was the first vessel to execute a submerged circumnavigation of the Earth (Operation Sandblast), doing so in early 1960. Triton accomplished this objective during her shakedown cruise while under the command of Captain Edward L. "Ned" Beach, Jr. The only member of her class, she also had the distinction of being the only Western submarine powered by two nuclear reactors.

    Triton was the second submarine and the fifth ship of the United States Navy to be named for the Greek god Triton. At the time of her commissioning in 1959, Triton was the largest, most powerful, and most expensive submarine ever built, at $109 million excluding the cost of nuclear fuel and reactors ($896 million in present-day terms).

    After operating for only two years in her designed role, Triton's mission as a radar picket submarine was made obsolete by the introduction of the carrier-based Grumman WF-2 Tracer airborne early warning aircraft. Converted to an attack submarine in 1962, she became the flagship for the Commander, Submarine Forces, U.S. Atlantic Fleet (COMSUBLANT) in 1964. She was decommissioned in 1969, the first U.S. nuclear submarine to be taken out of service.

    Triton's hull was moored at the St. Julien's Creek Annex of Norfolk Naval Shipyard in Portsmouth, Virginia as part of the reserve fleet until 1993, though she was struck from the Naval Vessel Register in 1986. In 1993, she was towed to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard to await the Nuclear Powered Ship and Submarine Recycling Program. The former Triton landed on the keel resting blocks in the drydock basin on 1 October 2007 to begin this recycling process which was completed effective 30 November 2009. The USS Triton's sail superstructure was saved from the recycling process and is now part of the USS Triton Submarine Memorial Park located on Port of Benton Blvd in Richland Washington.

    Indeed. Quite remarkable sentences from your part.

    I must say that your post displays exactly the same sentiments that I was thinking when reviewing the articles in the last issue of Proceedings.

    Moreover, as you can see on the cover there is another note titled “Seamanship is Fundamental” (pp.14-19).

    Both ships lost track of their situations completely, said Capt. Rick Hoffman, a retired cruiser captain who reviewed the documents for Defense News.

    “The thing that stood out to me was in both situations they had minimal situational awareness,” said Hoffman. “In the case of Fitzgerald, nearly criminal negligence on the part of the bridge watch team. And in neither case did the ship sound five short blasts or raise the general alarm to let anyone know they were in danger.”

    Navy Releases Collision Report for USS Fitzgerald and USS John S McCain Collisions

    Story Number: NNS171101-07
    Release Date: 11/1/2017 9:01:00 AM
    From Navy Office of Information

    WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy released Nov. 1, a report detailing the events and actions that led to the collision of USS Fitzgerald (DDG 62) and ACX Crystal off the coast of Japan June 17, and the collision of USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) and merchant vessel Alnic MC Aug. 21.

    "Both of these accidents were preventable and the respective investigations found multiple failures by watch standers that contributed to the incidents," said Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) Adm. John Richardson. "We must do better."

    "We are a Navy that learns from mistakes and the Navy is firmly committed to doing everything possible to prevent an accident like this from happening again. We must never allow an accident like this to take the lives of such magnificent young Sailors and inflict such painful grief on their families and the nation.

    "The vast majority of our Sailors are conducting their missions effectively and professionally - protecting America from attack, promoting our interests and prosperity, and advocating for the rules that govern the vast commons from the sea floor to space and in cyberspace. This is what America expects and deserves from its Navy.

    "Our culture, from the most junior sailor to the most senior Commander, must value achieving and maintaining high operational and warfighting standards of performance and these standards must be embedded in our equipment, individuals, teams and fleets.

    We will spend every effort needed to correct these problems and be stronger than before," said Richardson.

    USS FITZGERALD

    The collision between Fitzgerald and Crystal was avoidable and resulted from an accumulation of smaller errors over time, ultimately resulting in a lack of adherence to sound navigational practices. Specifically, Fitzgerald's watch teams disregarded established norms of basic contact management and, more importantly, leadership failed to adhere to well-established protocols put in place to prevent collisions. In addition, the ship's triad was absent during an evolution where their experience, guidance and example would have greatly benefited the ship.

    USS JOHN S. MCCAIN

    The collision between John S. McCain and Alnic MC was also avoidable and resulted primarily from complacency, over-confidence and lack of procedural compliance. A major contributing factor to the collision was sub-standard level of knowledge regarding the operation of the ship control console. In particular, McCain's commanding officer disregarded recommendations from his executive officer, navigator and senior watch officer to set sea and anchor watch teams in a timely fashion to ensure the safe and effective operation of the ship. With regard to procedures, no one on the Bridge watch team, to include the commanding officer and executive officer, were properly trained on how to correctly operate the ship control console during a steering casualty.

    From Naval Sea Systems Command Office of Corporate Communication

    WASHINGTON (NNS) -- U.S. Navy ocean engineering specialists announced that they had completed preparations to transport USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) to Yokosuka, Japan, for repairs Oct. 11.

    The specialists, assigned to Naval Sea Systems Command's Supervisor of Salvage and Diving (SUPSALV), led preparations for ship transport by way of the Merchant Vessel (MV) Treasure following the destroyer's at-sea collision Aug. 21.

    "SUPSALV engineers led the design and installation of a temporary hull patch, developed the heavy lift technical plans/logistics and supervised removal of the ship's propeller blades by Navy divers before loading USS John S. McCain aboard the transport," said Capt. Keith W. Lehnhardt, SUPSALV director of ocean engineering.

    Lehnhardt assigned a team of SUPSALV experts to prepare the ship for transport. An underwater ship husbandry operations specialist reviewed the removal of the ship's propeller blades prior to loading onboard MV Treasure. Removal of the propeller blades was necessary to load the destroyer on to the flat deck of the heavy lift ship. Also, a heavy lift/towing engineer, a salvage engineer/naval architect, heavy-lift officers from SUPSALV's naval reserve detachment and a naval architect from the U.K. Ministry of Defence, Salvage and Marine Operations Office led the technical, operational and logistical aspects of the effort. These specialists supervised the development of the complex engineering package and verified proper fabrication and installation of the blocking support structure required to properly load and secure USS John S. McCain aboard MV Treasure.

    "Once the team verified USS John S. McCain was properly aligned over the blocking on MV Treasure, approximately eight hours were spent de-ballasting the merchant vessel to lift USS John S. McCain out of the water," added Lehnhardt.

    MV Treasure is currently transporting McCain and is expected to arrive in Yokosuka, Japan, later this month.

    SUPSALV, based in Washington D.C., is responsible for Navy ocean engineering, including salvage, pollution response, in-water ship repair, towing, diving safety and equipment maintenance and procurement.

    From Naval Sea Systems Command Office of Corporate Communication

    WASHINGTON (NNS) -- U.S. Navy ocean engineering specialists announced that they had completed preparations to transport USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) to Yokosuka, Japan, for repairs Oct. 11.

    The specialists, assigned to Naval Sea Systems Command's Supervisor of Salvage and Diving (SUPSALV), led preparations for ship transport by way of the Merchant Vessel (MV) Treasure following the destroyer's at-sea collision Aug. 21.

    "SUPSALV engineers led the design and installation of a temporary hull patch, developed the heavy lift technical plans/logistics and supervised removal of the ship's propeller blades by Navy divers before loading USS John S. McCain aboard the transport," said Capt. Keith W. Lehnhardt, SUPSALV director of ocean engineering.

    Lehnhardt assigned a team of SUPSALV experts to prepare the ship for transport. An underwater ship husbandry operations specialist reviewed the removal of the ship's propeller blades prior to loading onboard MV Treasure. Removal of the propeller blades was necessary to load the destroyer on to the flat deck of the heavy lift ship. Also, a heavy lift/towing engineer, a salvage engineer/naval architect, heavy-lift officers from SUPSALV's naval reserve detachment and a naval architect from the U.K. Ministry of Defence, Salvage and Marine Operations Office led the technical, operational and logistical aspects of the effort. These specialists supervised the development of the complex engineering package and verified proper fabrication and installation of the blocking support structure required to properly load and secure USS John S. McCain aboard MV Treasure.

    "Once the team verified USS John S. McCain was properly aligned over the blocking on MV Treasure, approximately eight hours were spent de-ballasting the merchant vessel to lift USS John S. McCain out of the water," added Lehnhardt.

    MV Treasure is currently transporting McCain and is expected to arrive in Yokosuka, Japan, later this month.

    SUPSALV, based in Washington D.C., is responsible for Navy ocean engineering, including salvage, pollution response, in-water ship repair, towing, diving safety and equipment maintenance and procurement.
