There is a fairly significant vessel missing from the US Navy inventory - the Mark V Special Operations boat. Here is Wikipedia information, which is hardly authoritative, but the boat has been in operational use since at least as early as 2003.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_V_Special_Operations_Craft

65+ knots, significant range and weapon capability. Carries 14 SEALs and the boat crew. As much as we all enjoy the Cold War / Hot War scenarios, it seems the future may dictate more littoral missions and conflicts.

Edited to fix link with a "real" computer.


They are there as well as the new Mark 6

Make sure you're using a current db and search for US Mk5 etc.

The photo in the 444 database for the Mk V (and the data) is for the Pegasus (PHM-1) that entered service in the 1970’s and decommissioned in 1993. I cannot find it anywhere listed as the “Mk V SOC”. The Pegasus was a 48kt capable hydrofoil. The current Mk V is not a hydrofoil and is listed simply as 65+ kts.

The Mk 6 is a riverine/littoral craft first delivered to the Navy in 2014 and is not directly connected to special operations. The Navy calls the Mk 6 a “patrol boat.”

Near as I can tell, the photos and data in 444 is correct as far as it goes, but certainly does not have the Mk V SOC. There is a pretty good set of photos and data (non-Wiki) at warboats.org. You have to put “MkVa” (no quotes) if you have trouble browsing like me. The boat itself carries 2 11m RHIBS and a variety of weapons.

Thanks

Using build v1.11 Final / 825:

I sent a few notional Polish Longbow Apaches north into Kaliningrad at minimum altitude with terrain following on. The setpoint was 20 feet AGL, but the Apaches maintained 100 ft AGL regardless of skill level (tested with Regular & Ace).

I used an SA-17 (Buk-M1-2) platoon to test radar-guided SAM effectiveness against the Apaches. The detection threshold for the CHAIR BACK A was ~17 nm. Terrain masking was beautifully effective, although micromanagement is certainly required! I was able to use the BMNG layer to pop over the hills south of the E28 highway near Gvardeysk, destroy a truck convoy moving at 15 knots, and flee back behind cover long before the SA-17 arrived. For a moment I felt like I was back in Digital Integration's Apache Longbow...

Great work on getting this into 1.11. It has really fixed up attack helicopters. Look-down radar is at an absolute priority now!

We don't add the photos. This is part of the community image pack that a few volunteers put together and maintain.

Sounds like you've found the platforms though which is good news.

Thanks. I am retired (advanced military systems hardware/software design engineer), so I have plenty of time to research what few areas I have expertise in. I would be glad to offer what help I can provide by compiling a summary of platforms and systems, along with references, and send them along to those who work on the database. Let me know who to contact and I'll get in touch. Thanks for a great program. I cannot say enough.

I´ve just upgraded to 1.11, and today I found that Eurofighters now go more than twice as far as before! A Typhoon with Storm Shadow apparently has a radius of 440nm, but when I actually tested it it went about 950nm before having to RTB. I then tried different loadouts and found that they all have the same burn rate in cruise. I tried the same with the f-35 (to see if it was a problem with all planes) but they went as far as advertised and no further! Is this just a glitch in my own game, or did something happen to specific aircraft types when the game was updated?

In November 2015 an F-16 successfully completed live-fire testing of the JSM at the Utah Test and Training Range. So it will be replaced RB 12 Penguin MK3.

And JSM program(Kongsberg and Raytheon consortium) aim to integrate for US F-35 A / B / C
The Navy will soon deploy a new missile aboard its Littoral Combat Ship that can find and destroy enemy ships at distances up to 100 nautical miles.

Boeing backs extended-range Harpoon to stave off Kongsberg threat. Maybe AGM-84N-ER will be upgraded range around 130nm. Also Boeing are interested integration for LCS to against JSM program(NSM variant).(RGM variant? - add weapon tab please)

Read this news, P-8A also will integrate AGM-84N Block II+

The 9X Block II can do things its predecessors could hardly have imagined. For example, it is equipped with a 360-degree engagement capability and a data link, said Capt. Jim Stoneman, chief of the Navy’s Air-to-Air Missiles Program Office. That enables a pilot to fire the missile first and then aim it at a target.

“The pilot can shoot and then pass more information to the missile” via the data link to vector the missile to a target, Stoneman said during a briefing May 16 at the 2016 Sea-Air-Space Exposition. The missile’s 360-degree capability enables it to engage targets — even those behind the aircraft, he said.

On some planes, such as the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter, pilots will be able to aim the missiles using sights built into their helmets.

Although the Sidewinder was developed as a short-range missile meant for close-in kills, the Block II’s range has been “about doubled,” Stoneman said, making it into a “beyond-visual-range” weapon.

New USN frigate: FF 29 - 5/19/2016 6:16:51 PM

More details on new frigate, now FF 29:

quote:


The Navy has tentatively moved up the down-select decision for the new frigate design to 2018 from 2019 and has given the lead ship a hull number.

Speaking to an audience May 18 at the Sea-Air-Space Exposition, Capt. Dan Brintzinghoffer, the Navy’s program manager for the frigate program, said the first new frigate would be designated FF 29, the next sequential hull number after the 28 littoral combat ships (LCSs).

...

The frigate will incorporate most of the features of the anti-surface and anti-submarine mission packages of the LCS, including the 57mm and 30mm guns, Hellfire Longbow missiles, Multifunction Towed Array, variable depth sonar, MH-60R helicopter and MQ-8C Fire Scout unmanned helicopter. It also will be armed with the SeaRAM missile launcher and an over-the-horizon (OTH) cruise missile.

The OTH missile will be selected through a full and open competition, he said, and is at the top of the list of features for the frigate.

The Navy is deploying the Harpoon cruise missile on the LCS USS Coronado and the Kongsberg Naval Strike Missile on the LCS USS Freedom, but these demonstrations are different from the missile competition for the frigate.

The combat system for the frigate was selected by the Navy when 2019 was the intended down-select year: the Lockheed Martin COMBATSS-21 system.

While we are on the topic of the LCS...

Here are some great documents with up-to-date LCS details and scheduling if you need it:

http://www.mcaleese.com/sites/default/files/RDMLAntonio%20Defense%20Programs%20Conference_LCS%20FINALv2.pdf
http://www.navsea.navy.mil/Portals/103/Documents/Exhibits/SAS-Morton-LCSMM.pdf

{Correction June 7th}
Correction from my previous post on the LCS.

The TRS-4D and SeaRAM will get installed starting with LCS-17 and only be on Freedom-class variants following LCS-17 (e.g. LCS-19, LCS-21,LCS-23,etc..)

Sorry about that.
{End correction}

All LCSs after LCS-17 (commissioning in 2019) will receive a rotating version of the C-band TRS-4D AESA as well as SeaRAM to replace the current Mk.49 RAM launcher on all freedom-class ships after LCS-17.

From: http://www.janes.com/article/56339/first-trs-4d-radar-for-usn-freedom-variant-lcs-completes-factory-acceptance
quote:


The first eight Freedom variant LCSs are being delivered with the Airbus Defence and Space TRS-3D/16 G-band radar, designated AN/SPS-75 in USN service. However, the remaining eight vessels - starting with USS Indianapolis (LCS 17) - are to be fitted with a rotating version of the TRS-4D system as an 'in-line' upgrade.

Based on solid-state Gallium Nitride technology, TRS-4D is a software-driven radar employing full digital beamforming, and with pulse-Doppler processing in all beams. The rotator variant features a single-face AESA antenna rotating at either 15 rpm or 30 rpm (depending on the update rate required) at 2-70° in elevation. The use of an AESA array, with instantaneous dual-axis beamsteering in both azimuth and elevation, allows for 'backward scanning' to ensure fast-track initiation.

The SeaRAM is already installed on many of the trimaran hull Independence variants of the LCS and is slated to be integrated onto the Freedom variants starting with LCS 17.


The VDS being talked about for the LCS ASW package is the CAPTAS-4 (the Type 2087 version)

From: http://www.drs.com/media/3830/sna-brochure-vds-final-11jan2016.pdf

Info: https://www.thalesgroup.com/sites/default/files/asset/document/Captas-4.pdf

Also for the ASW mission package will be a towed torpedo decoy called the AN/SLQ-61 Light Weight Tow (LWT). It is described as being a new derivative of the SLQ-25 Nixie decoy and will have 2 decoy sets aboard the ship, like the Nixie.

The LCS ASW Mission package, which includes the previously mentioned VDS and LWT, is projected to reach IOC in 2018, but considerations are being given to ship availability so it would probably be safer to put it at 2019.

More info on JSMs for Norwegian Block 4 F-35As

From: http://www.janes.com/article/55989/joint-strike-missile-starts-flight-test-programme
quote:

Leveraging technology and experience accrued from Kongsberg's previous development of the Nytt Sjømålsmissile/Naval Strike Missile anti-ship missile, JSM has been conceived as a low-observable, air-launched precision strike weapon designed for integration and internal carriage on board the F-35A and F-35C variants of the Lockheed Martin Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). Norway plans to purchase 52 F-35A aircraft to meet the Royal Norwegian Air Force's (RNoAF's) Project 7600 Future Fighter Capability programme requirement; authorisation has so far been received for the procurement of 22 F-35As.

Integration of JSM into JSF is planned as part of the Block 4A/4B update, due in service in the 2022-2024 timeframe; this would enable the RNoAF's F-35 fleet to achieve full operational capability in 2025.

USAF CV-22s are getting upgraded with the AN/APQ-187 "Silent Knight" radar starting in 2021.

From: http://www.nationaldefensemagazine.org/archive/2016/May/Pages/CV22OspreysGetExtraUpgradesforSpecialOperations.aspx
quote:

AFSOC anticipates that the Silent Knight retrofit kits will be available in the third quarter of fiscal year 2021. The command is looking to fit one to two CV-22s with the new system in fiscal year 2021. From fiscal years 2022 through 2027, it plans to retrofit eight to nine aircraft per year. However, that schedule is dependent on aircraft availability and the length of the other retrofits. Overall, the command hopes to have the new radar on all 51 CV-22s by fiscal year 2027. Silent Knight has already been tested and integrated on Army special operations helicopters — the MH-47G Chinook and the MH-60M Black Hawk, Lemaster noted.

Problem was fixed by creating a new SOSUS unit and placing it in deep waters. By merely moving an existing one from shallow (where its arrays do not operate due to shallow depth) into deep waters, the operational status does not automatically change.

Thus, the newly created US and Japanese SOSUS units operated fine, while the displaced Chinese SOSUS did not.



Nobody has touched these in some time as far as we know but I agree they should be adjusted. Added to our list. In the meantime just use the American one's instead. Its not like the nationality in a database field matters as all data with these systems is based on educated guesses and given the technology (and er..some countries espionage capabilities) the capabilities are likely the same.

Which is a lot smarter than your original post.

Nobody here is purposefully manipulating data toward a US bias and it really is annoying to be accused of it.

Mike



Never even implied that.

Thought this as a bug.

No you didn't. You were very clear you thought somebody made a change from one db version to the next.

Anyways that was a day or two ago so old news. Lets move forward and focus on the good stuff!

Thanks!

Mike

The US Navy will not get to field its new Anti-Ship Tomahawks until 2021; currently the service date is 2015 in the DB. Apparently it is taking them a while to test and integrate the new seeker.

USAF Eagles getting an EW upgrade. EPAWSS Increment 1 will reach IOC in 2021-2022 for the F-15C/D/E. Increment 1 will replace the current TEWS RWR and DECM


IOC reference from GAO, Page 156 of the below PDF.
From: http://www.gao.gov/assets/680/676281.pdf
quote:

According to program officials, software development and
integration of the electronic warfare system with all other on-board and off-board systems are risk areas that
could affect the Air Force's ability to have the required number of assets ready in time for the projected initial
operational capability in 2021.

To further improve schedule, affordability and program risk outcomes, and consistent with the
JROC approved CDD, the F-15 EPAWSS program will pursue a two-increment acquisition approach. Increment 1 replaces the existing Radar Warning Receiver, Internal Countermeasures System and Countermeasures Dispenser System. Increment 2 adds a towed decoy / angle countermeasure capability.


Thanks.

The TB-34 towed sonar array has replaced the TB-16 on the Seawolf, Los-Angeles, and Virginia-class submarines. Production deliveries started in Q2 2011 and will end Q4 2017 after operational testing ended in 2010.

From: http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/budget/fy2010/dot-e/navy/2010tb34.pdf
quote:

The Navy completed operational testing of the TB-34 towed array in accordance with the DOT&E-approved test plan in January 2010 and DOT&E issued a classified Beyond Low‑Rate Initial Production (BLRIP) report on the test results in November 2010.

TB-34 Production Deliveries 2 2011 4 2017


From: http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/library/budget/fy2010/dot-e/navy/2010tb34.pdf
quote:

The TB-34 towed array is intended to replace the legacy TB‑16 tactical towed array, and provides additional hydrophones for future capability in passive sonar processing. The array is intended to provide improved capability for Anti-Submarine Warfare and contact avoidance in cluttered littoral environments as well as maintain the U.S. Submarine Force’s Ready for Issue fat-line towed array inventory

This one might be an edge case between CWDB and DB3k.

A couple of Iraqi PBs, like the P-6 and Osa I/II are in CWDB, but not in the DB3K. Some of these were left in 1980/81 and participated in a couple significant operations. I could just use them from the CWDB, but other Iraqi and Iranian units are then missing from the CWDB. The simplest would be to just copy the units from CWDB to DB3k. I think there might be others in this situation around the Iran-Iraq War around 1979-1981. I think in general, the 1979 -1981 timeframe needs some review. I just happened to notice these units because I was building a specific scenario.

Also Unit #1226 La Combattante II with RGM-84 (RGM-84 is in the title) is missing the RGM-84 in DB3k. I will doublecheck, but these ships might need to be in CWDB also. (Nevermind...I missed the Mk 140 launchers)

I'll also post in CWDB.

The Tapper class #2923 should have 6x depth charges.

Seems like every small patrol boat or corvette carried SA-7s for air defense. They proved somewhat effective, shooting down a couple phantoms and Mig-23s. Is there a way to have some permanently attached to smaller patrol boats in the 1980 to 1990 time-frame. I have been ading them manually, but it seems like they were common enough in the Iran-Traq war to warrant having permanent ones.
