They would do that on purpose to allow the use of the dock. Like modern busses "kneel" to assist the onload and offload of passengers.

Strengths & Weaknesses of the Contenders for Australia's Submarine Replacement Programme
quote:

Plans to replace the existing Royal Australian Navy's (RAN) Collins-class submarines began in 2007 with the launch of "SEA 1000" also known as the Future Submarine Programme. In February this year, the Australian Government announced the acquisition strategy for the Future Submarine Program and invited three countries: France, Germany and Japan to participate in a competitive evaluation process. Here is our analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each contender:
» The Japanese Soryu class
» The German Type 216
» The French evolution of SSN Barracuda

The manufacturer of the Chinese Type 071 amphibious transport dock has finally released official specs about that ship.
And it appears that she is faster and heavier than previously estimated (25 knots vs previously 22 knots, 25.000tons vs previously 22.000tons).

Wikipedia has been updated as well:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Type_071_amphibious_transport_dock

Souce:

Blitzo@Sinodefense Forum

quote:

From CSSC reporting on 071 LPD Changbai shan from last year -- we finally have "official" specs from the manufacturer.

http://www.cssc.net.cn/component_news/news_detail.php?id=17797

25,000 tons full displacement, 10,000 nmi range, top speed 25 knots, 210 m long, 28 m beam, 7 m draft, top speed of 25 knots.

Looks like the 29,000 tons from the portsmouth visit on the sign is indeed deep draft with ballast tanks fully loaded.

I just saw this...

http://www.janes.com/article/39665/equatorial-guinea-inducts-new-frigate

I don't know if there is enough information here to add Equatorial Guinea to the database, but it's an interesting development.

Some more information (very basic) is here...

Thanks. I'm hoping there will eventually be enough information that it is possible to add a few more countries that aren't already in the database. Equatorial Guinea is one of them, but there are various other African nations that could be added (Kenya, Cameroon, Ghana, etc.) and also some Black Sea/Caspian Sea ones (Georgia, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, etc.) All of these countries are large enough and/or have been involved in enough conflicts that I think you could get some really interesting scenarios by adding them. Command handles gun combat better than Harpoon did, I think, and that really opens up some possibilities for low intensity conflicts.

[MORE DETAILS NEEDED]

China building mobile landing platform, new ro-ro PLA support ship


http://www.janes.com/article/51984/china-building-mobile-landing-platform-new-ro-ro-pla-support-ship

Chinese Mobile Landing Platform equivalent was recently spotted via photo and satellite:




And just today, a photo surfaced which shows the Chinese MLP, pennant #868, is now in service, hauling a Zubr-class Hovercraft:



I dont know about the "5000 tons" figure given by Janes, since this is a 180m ship with a 33m beam. For comparisson, the Blue Marlin is 217m long and has 42m beam, displacing some 50.000+ tons. There are some discussions here that doubt that low displacement numbers as well:

https://disqus.com/home/discussion/snafusolomon/snafu_the_chinese_are_actually_building_a_mlpalmost_an_exact_copy/

I'd say that the Chinese MLP, now classified as "H1183-class", which would be Huangpu Shipyard's production designation, actually weights about 40-50k tons.

EDIT: CSSC, the Chinese shipyard, actually confirmed 50.000 tons displacement - guess that Jane's forgot a "0".

Hey all, followed a link while surfing that led me to this piece concerning the geo-political situation in Eastern Europe, Russia, and a potential increasing threat of a nuclear conflict being fought in the region. Whether you buy into the threat or not, it makes for a pretty interesting read. It's a bit on the long side, but worth it.

The title of the overall piece is "How WWIII Became Possible".

Oceaneering to Modernize Dry Deck Shelters (DDS) for US Navy Virginia Class SSN

quote:

Modernization efforts include extending the existing DDS by 50-inches and providing remote operations for the hangar outer door, remotely operated power handling system (i.e., track and cradle) and remotely operated hangar capability. These upgrades will allow for larger payload deployment from a Virginia-class submarine, such as larger swimmer delivery vehicles (SDV) such as Teledyne Brown Engineering's Shallow Water Combat Submersible (SWCS) which is set to replace the existing US Navy SEALs' SDV (the MK 8 Mod 1 SEAL Delivery Vehicle).

new radar for better use of this missiles and Kh-31P
after that it will be best attack helicopter in the world


Did the Russians/Soviets ever try using the HIND as a navalized helicopter? I know the Mi-8 was used, but I'm curious if the -24 was.

Of course never
Only shore based Hinds from Russian/Soviet Navy sometimes land on ships but this is nothing except experiments

The Australian military has decided to cancel plans to purchase F-35B Joint Strike Fighter short-take-off-and-vertical landing aircraft and place 12 of the aircraft on two of their larger assault ships, citing the challenges of needing to rework the ships to accommodate the plane, according to published report
s.
“Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s proposal to put F-35 fighter jets on the Navy’s two 27,000-tonne troop transport assault ships has been quietly dropped,” writes The Australian Financial Review.

The two assault ships, which are the largest in the Australian Navy, would need a massive amount of modifications in order to host the F-35B, the report said.

“The jump-jet proposal would involve extensive modifications to the ships, including new radar systems, instrument landing systems, heat-resistant decking, restructuring of fuel storage and fuel lines, and storage hangars,” The Australian Financial Review reported.
