  • MDA Shrugs and Lowers Goal to 39 BMD Ships | New Russian Hardware Seen Over Syria | Canadians Cut Steel on New Arctic Patrol Ships

    Editorial Staff
    2 Sep 2015 | 9:27 pm
    Americas The Missile Defense Agency is lessening its ambitions for the number of ships that will be equipped with ballistic missile defense to 39 from 48. Between the Navy buying fewer, more expensive ships and opting not to staff ships in drydock with BMD-qualified crews, the number 39 seemed more realistic, if further away from the commanders’ request of 70. The Navy’s fourth MUOS satellite appears to have happily landed in its initial orbit after riding on an Atlas V. Irving Shipbuilding in Nova Scotia started in on the MNCS Harry DeWolf, the ship that will give its name to the…

    DDG 110 & MH-60S(click to view full) Technically, the Ticonderoga Class cruisers sit at the pinnacle of the US Navy’s surface combatant fleet. They’re no longer being built, however, and the growing preponderance of Arleigh Burke Class destroyers in missile defense roles is beginning to push them to the fore. A proposed Flight III design with a much-improved radar set will complete that transformation.

Beyond the obvious financial pain involved with a program that hopes to produce planes for half a billion dollars per copy, at least one representative wants to press to discover why the increased estimate was released when it was – after the brunt of the debate occurred about initial funding and after lengthy discussions about whether or not the Air Force should have to shoulder the cost of the program through…
