NUEVO BUQUE DE DESEMBARCO PARA LA ARMADA ARGENTINA?
 

Segun noticias que nos envian los colaboradores de Histarmar, se habría comprado a Francia un  LSD en la última visita del Ministro de Defensa que sería el Orage, gemelo del Ourange.La foto de arriba y la siguiente fueron sacadas en Haití a principios del 2004. Las dos siguiente son del gemelo Ourange desembarcando tropas en Irak. Esta unidad (o unidades?) son buques de desembarco multiproposito que la Armada necesitaba urgentemente, ya que luego de haber dado de baja a los viejos BDT y al Candido de Lasala no se habian repuesto.

 El sitio web no oficial de la Marina Francesa comenta que estarian fuera de servicio en el 2006 y entonces se transferirian a la Armada Argentina. Los datos del buque son de Combat Fleets of the World 2002.

Electric: 2,650 kw tot.           Range: 9,000/15

Crew: 12 officers, 78 petty officers, 115 ratings + up to 470 troops

 

Remarks: TCD = Transport de Chalands de Débarquement. Were originally to have been replaced in 1992, then to be retired in 2000 and 2003, but have now been extended to 2004 and 2006, respectively.

Hull systems: The bridge is mounted to starboard of the permanent helicopter deck. Both have repair facilities. Can carry 349 troops, including 14 officers, or 470 troops for a short distance. The 120-m-long docking well, which has a 14 × 5.5–m stern gate, can be submerged by 3 m. Movement of the sluices and valves is automatic, using pumps (3,000 m3/hr) controlled from a central position. A removable deck in six sections covers 36 m of the after part of the well and allows the landing and takeoff of heavy helicopters. A 90-m-long temporary deck in 15 sections can be used to stow cargo or vehicles, but its use reduces the number of landing craft that can be carried. They can embark either two EDIC landing craft for infantry and tanks, carrying 11 light tanks or trucks, or eight LCM(8) with tanks or vehicles and, in addition, heavy helicopters on the landing platform. If used as cargo carriers, they can embark 1,500 tons of material. Lifting equipment includes two 35-ton cranes.

Combat systems: A combined command center permits the simultaneous direction of helicopter and amphibious operations. The SQS-17 sonar on L 9021 has been removed, as have the ship’s former two 120-mm mortars. Both had two Simbad light SAM launchers added in 1992 in place of two 40-mm mounts. Now have Syracuse II SATCOM facilities, as well as an Inmarsat transceiver. Plans to replace the remaining two 40-mm guns with 30-mm OTOBreda-Mauser gunmounts have been canceled, but both have two SAGEM DIBC-2A (VIGY 105) panoramic electro-optical weapons-control systems as part of a reduced version of the OP3A/SENIT 8.01 self-defense combat control system.

Gracias, Ignacio Amendolara!

 

 

 

Nota: Otra oportunidad perdida. A Marzo del 2007, se ha anulado la compra de estos buques aduciendo exceso de materiales peligrosos. Alguna vez se modernizara la Armada? La Sra. Ministra de Defensa sera cambiada de una buena vez y se pondra en el cargo a alguien que sepa de que se trata?
