(See) FFG(X) - Fregattenprogramm der US Navy
#1
In den Nachrichten sind ja meistens nur noch die Arleigh Burkes (bzw. deren Batches) und gelegentlich einer der neuen Zumwalts zu sehen und jeder redet von Zerstörern, indessen war die Klasse der Fregatte seitens der US Navy in den letzten Jahrzehnten etwas stiefmütterlich behandelt worden, genau genommen kam seit der Oliver Hazard Perry-Klasse nichts mehr. Und das, was von dieser Klasse noch schwimmt, wurde meistens in Ausland verscherbelt. Nun macht sich die Navy, erstmals seit den späten 1960ern, wieder Gedanken um einen neuen Fregattentyp, wobei bis zu 35 Einheiten geplant sein sollen...

Alles zu diesem Thema, egal wie sich die FFG...-Definition irgendwann gestaltet, soll bitte hier gepostet werden.
Zitat:Bath Iron Works wins $15M contract to help design new Navy frigates

The U.S. Navy on Friday awarded $15 million conceptual design contracts to five firms, including Bath Iron Works, for a new frigate known as FFG(X), according to the Naval Sea Systems Command.

The contracts will allow the Navy to better understand the cost and capabilities of the design options and inform the final specifications for the vessels’ construction at a cost of no more than $950 million each, the Navy said in a news release. The construction contract, to be awarded next year, would be worth about $15 billion to the company that wins it. [...] The Navy added the FFG(X) program to its fiscal year 2018 budget submission, proposing to procure one each in fiscal years 2020 and 2021, and then two per year from 2022 to 2030, according to a Nov. 9 report from the Congressional Research Service.

BIW will work with Spanish ship designer Navantia on the design. The other companies awarded a contract Friday are: Huntington Ingalls of Newport News, Virginia; Lockheed Martin of Bethesda, Maryland; Fincantieri/Marinette Marine of Marinette, Wisconsin, and Austal USA of Mobile, Alabama.

Zitat:General Dynamics unveils their guided missile frigate proposal for U.S. Navy

Major United States shipyard General Dynamics Bath Iron Works, part of General Dynamics Corporation, has unveiled their guided missile frigate proposal under the FFG(X) program for the U.S. Navy. The concept of new guided missile frigate was unveiled during annual Sea-Air-Space, the largest maritime exposition in the United States. [...]

In February 2018, the U.S. Navy awarded General Dynamics Bath Iron Works a $14.9 million contract for the concept design of the Navy’s planned Guided Missile Frigate (FFG(X)). Bath Iron Works’ proposed design is based on a family of AEGIS Guided Missile Frigates designed by the Spanish shipbuilder Navantia. The contract award enables Bath Iron Works to mature the design to meet the specifications established by the Navy that will be used for the Detail Design and Construction request for proposals. The contract includes options which, if exercised, would bring the total value of the contract to $22.9 million. [...] Bath Iron Works designed the Navy’s prior frigate, the Oliver Hazard Perry class, and built many of the hulls. Bath Iron Works partnered with Navantia in the 1980s to adapt the Oliver Hazard Perry design for construction by the Spanish shipbuilding industry and for use by the Spanish Navy. [...]

The Navy expects to build a total of twenty (20) FFG(X) ships as per the fiscal year 2019 Report to Congress on the Annual Long-Range Plan for Construction of Naval Vessels.

Ein fast schon ungewohnt konservatives Design, bei all den schicken Studien, die man in den letzten Jahren sehen konnte (bis hin zur Zumwalt)

Ich meinte damit nicht die Systeme oder Auslegung, sondern tatsächlich die Formgebung. Und die ist so klassisch nicht sicherer in ihrer Funktion als ein "modernes" Design. Wink

Es bewegt sich langsam etwas: Nachdem im April der Zuschlag für den Auftrag an Fincantieri/Marinette Marine gegangen (was ich recht interessant finde, ist, dass Austal offenbar rausgeflogen ist) war, hat der Kongress nun seine Zustimmung für die Finanzierung des Baus für die erste Einheit im Rahmen des laufenden Jahres gegeben...
Zitat:Report to Congress on U.S. Navy Frigate FFG(X) Program

The FFG(X) program is a Navy program to build a class of 20 guided-missile frigates (FFGs). Congress funded the procurement of the first FFG(X) in FY2020 at a cost of $1,281.2 million (i.e., about $1.3 billion). The Navy’s proposed FY2021 budget requests $1,053.1 million (i.e., about $1.1 billion) for the procurement of the second FFG(X). The Navy estimates that subsequent ships in the class will cost roughly $940 million each in then-year dollars. [...]

On April 30, 2020, the Navy announced that it had awarded the FFG(X) contract to the team led by Fincantieri/Marinette Marine (F/MM) of Marinette, WI. F/MM was awarded a fixed-price incentive (firm target) contract for Detail Design and Construction (DD&C) for up to 10 ships in the program—the lead ship plus nine option ships.

Under the DD&C contact awarded to F/MM, Navy has the option of recompeting the FFG(X) program after the lead ship (if none of the nine option ships are exercised), after the 10th ship (if all nine of the option ships are exercised), or somewhere in between (if some but not all of the nine option ships are exercised). [...] As part of its action on the Navy’s FY2020 budget, Congress passed two legislative provisions relating to U.S. content requirements for certain components of each FFG(X). [...]
