Sailors assigned to Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Olympia (SSN 717) prepare to launch a UGM-84 Harpoon missile during the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise to sink the decommissioned ex-USS Racine (LST-1191) July 12 off the coast of Hawaii. Twenty-five nations, 46 ships, five submarines, about 200 aircraft and 25,000 personnel are participating in RIMPAC from June 27 - Aug. 2 in and around the Hawaiian Islands and Southern California. The world's largest international maritime exercise, RIMPAC provides a unique training opportunity while fostering and sustaining cooperative relationships among participants critical to ensuring the safety of sea lanes and security of the world's oceans. RIMPAC 2018 is the 26th exercise in the series that began in 1971. (U.S. Navy video by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Michael H. Lee/Released).

Torpedoes still loaded manually? I thought this proceeding was already fully automated. Seems clumsy not to mention slow and the potential of human error.🤔
neutrino78x 2 dager siden
this is a lot more automated than it used to be. back in the 60s they used ropes and stuff. Now we have motors and the torpedo is guided into the tube much more precisely. As far as slow...you would normally have the torpedo loaded already so you can launch on someone if need be. :) source: I was USN submarines 1999 to 2003. sonar tech but everyone crosstrains and I'm qualified Torpedo Handling Team Member and I'm also trained in loading and launching torpedoes while underway.

My issue isn't necessarily with the crew. How fucking complicated does it need to be to load a torpedo? There should be about 90% less steps. I'm actual combat, this sub would be added to the "permanently on patrol" board. It's about who can shoot the fastest accurately. If it takes you 3 minutes minimum to load the tube, how do you expect to get more than 2 shots off before you die?

@Self identify as a AR-15 Oh WOW you can shoot a squiggle a bunny or a peasant . Oh and a deer and a bear. They are all somewhat shy animals and if you do them from a few hundred yards away it is not much of a challenge. It is fine to go out shooting but what if the animals shot back?? there is a section of film in Crocodile Dundee where the a bunch of drunk yahoos are shooting Kangaroos in the bush - lamping them to confuse them and Dundee at the request of Linda Kozlowski picks up a dead Roo and sticks a rifle under its arm and starts shooting back - to the comment of " F me the Roo's got a gun"!!! and they shoot off. I have a Lady Friend who is Maori in NZ - she went out to catch the meat for my Hangi for my wedding - she went into the bush with one knife and one dog. The dog found the Wild Boar (huge tusks) and bailed it up -= she went in and slit its throat and cut its bits out (taints the meat otherwise) - MO GUN that is not very sporting. So how many have you put down sweetie - and i DON'T MEAN BIG LUMBERING BEARS WHO JUST WANT TO CATCH SALMON. ????

@Paul Brownett my family starts taking the kids hunting at age 5 the first few years to observe and learn. By age 10 we are hunting small game such as rabbit, squirrel, and pheasants. This is followed up with deer, bear. These are hunted with open sights as in a thick forest optics on small or fast moving animals is hindering. Larger game in open areas is best hunted using optics as it ensures a clean kill. Don’t be upset as you’re “mark one eyeball” has been used for years successfully but is not the best option in many instances

Many here are bemoaning the lack of haste: This is not combat, it is a training exercise. The crew are appropriately taking things slowly and by the book. There are 50 friendly vessels involved in RIMPAC. It would be rather awkward if they accidentally banged a torpedo into one of them--or lost their own billion-dollar submarine--because somebody forgot step five, don't you think?

@B. Domph in a known area where there is a possibility of combat. you will usually have a combat load 4 in the tube and 4 in stand by. which usaully is just outboard 1 slot of the tubes. incase there is a bad weapon. so you can back haul and change out. but about 2 minutes for a combat reload. in time you also have 3 other tubes ready to launch and a handling team on each bank of tubes.
Alan McCright
Alan McCright 4 måneder siden
@B. Domph In a modern US attack sub, if the torpedo is in queue to be loaded, (it's at the tube inner door),1 1/2 to 2 minutes. If the torpedo in queue has to be swapped-out for, say, a Harpoon Missile, longer; and that time depends on where in the inventory the Harpoon is stowed, where the torpedo has to be stowed, the sub class, and the crew. Though, since a sub has multiple tubes and depending on the mission profile, a Harpoon may be queued at one of the other tubes making swapping unnecessary.

Oh my old boat, I think I am one of the few people that has been everywhere on this submarine. It was somewhere around 1993 we were in shipyard, the reactor core was removed so the boat was totally cool, usually when your in port the reactor makes many places in accessible due to heat. You might notice that the submarine is immaculate, that’s because the crew spent hours and hours cleaning. For some reason it’s called a field day it was during those few days that I would find every nook and cranny or as we like to call them pookas to relax and shoot the sh*t. After five hours of cleaning and three hours left to go the nonsense seems endless. Thanks for posting

About the comments about the loading being slow. The first fish was actually a Tomahawk missile being fired from a sub retrofitted to fire it. There is a lot of random equipment that has to be mounted to the tube to “talk” to it. Torpedo’s take way less time.

There are actually three doors: breech, muzzle, and shutter. Additionally the breech and muzzle doors are interlocked so they can’t be open at the same time. If I remember right - and I’m not promising that I do - the muzzle door opened automatically as part of the launch command, the shutter door being opened by a button earlier in the firing point procedures.

Harpoons and Mk-48 ADCAP torpedoes are WAY more complex than a WWI-era gyro-and-depth-steered torpedo-more things to hook up, more interlocks to clear, etc. Plus, even in WWI and WWII, torpedo loading should take just as long, if not longer, since you may not have hydraulic assist in loading the tubes. And whereas sinking ships with a torpedo in early sub ops is a question of multiple fish at once, modern torpedoes are pretty much a one-and-done sort of arrangement, save for capital ships.

hoghogwild År siden
@timaahhh For the UGM-84 subsurface launched Harpoon loading(the first weapon loading showed), at 1:45 "Warning: Weapon must be restrained at all times!" So yes, the weapon must be held in place at all times, even when in the tube. At 2:09 the video shows the "Liner latch pin being installed and confirmed with the following call "Liner latch pin installed." At 6:57 they are ensuring that the weapon(this time a torpedo. trainer) is "restrained" for and aft before they remove the rammer to allow the inner tube door to be closed and secured. "I image there is a lot of room in front for it to slide forward and it could just slide out the back if they take on a lot of angle." The surface ship and subsurface ship(submarine) versions of the Harpoon anti ship missile measure 4.6 meters long(15 feet 1 inch) while the air launched version is 3.8 meters or 12 ft 5 inches. The current Mark 48 torpedoes that everyone uses has a length of 5.8 meters/19 feet. So yes there is some extra length in the tube when the shorter UGM-84 Harpoon is loaded into a torpedo tube.
hoghogwild År siden
@larry ciummo At 1:22 the weapons plug is also labelled "HARPOON". Those folded fins are the part of the missile that help maintain directional stability as the missile moves through the water. All of what you see that is green that is being inserted into that torpedo tube is jettisoned when the missile broaches the surface of the water and flies away. That green cover will be left in the water.
timaahhh År siden
How is the weapon held the tube after the ram is retracted? Do they have some kind of restraint in the tube itself? I image there is a lot of room in front for it to slide forward and it could just slide out the back if they take on a lot of angle.
