    Re: World's NAVY SHIPS

    If I'm not incrrectly, the box on the stern houses two shafts with a propeller at the bottom: a kind of an early shottle drive system not unlike the one on the tenders of the SS Norway (little Norway 1 and 2).

      Not the type and size of vessels where you would expect to find Water Jet propulsion, especially since they are obviously intended to be beached.
      At a steep slope beach, no problem, but what on a shallow beach with small gradient???

      I know that the Norway 1 & 2 was beached regularly. Didn't you have problem with sand or debris in the intakes??? Plastic bags and sheets are known to cause blockage.

        This is a hydraulic door that can opens so they can take on board equipment at both ends of the ship.

        Propulsion arrangement Main engine type: Deutx MWM, TBD 234 V12 Output: 2 x 610 bhp
        Service speed: 11.6 knots
        Main propellers: 2 x Schottel SRP 300
        Bow thruster: 2 x Schottel Pumpejet SPJ 22 (2 x 134 bhp)

          That make good sense. Do they fit into standard Ferry Ramps, of which there are hundreds along the Norwegian coast?

            Yes, they can add the stern to regular ferry berths and take on board trucks, cars and anything else that may be required for.

              Yes, shottle drive, not water jets.

                Without a working camera, I can unfortunately not go to the pier to take a photo, so I give this web camera image instead (source: Trondheim Port Authority; www.tih.no )

                They have a website too...: http://www.vicksburg.navy.mil/Default.aspx

                When they arrived, they were escorted by two other navy ships, and they were sailing completely without any lights at all, not even navigation lights I've heard. They do not transmit an AIS signal, and they are not on any "ships-in-port" lists as well.
                Did all of you see the cool image of the USS Vicksburg in Maasmondmaritime Newsletter today?

                  One of four speed boats from the Navy who has been at
                  exercise the last week in Troms county.

                  They consume much diesel as they are constantly at Skjelnan tank plant to fill up fuel tanks.

                    ANYWAYS...: I really can't tell you, yet (as I'm told not to), but for any norwegians, or any of you foreigners who might be on vacation in the area, you might want to be in Kristiansund 25.-26. June WITH your camera. (I'll be back with more later).
                    Then it's finally out in the open; F313 "Helge Ingstad" will arrive in Kristiansund and be open to the public 25.-26. june.
                    Now, this might not be anything big, but three weeks ago it was a big secret, and my source asked me not to tell anything.
                    As some might remember, champagne and cakes came on the table years back in Kristiansund as Sterkoder Ship Yard got the contract to build the frigates for the RNoNavy.
                    Then something "fishy" happened behind closed doors in the departement and the order surprisingly was given to the spanish yard.
                    For the first time a frigate will be in the inner harbour of Kristiansund, and I'll try to come aboard, even though I'm positive I will not get the images I want. You know, crazy crowds and all...

                      China is nearing completion of it's first Aircraft Carrier. Built from the Soviet navy 1980's unfinished VARYAG which was supposedly bought to be used as a museum.

                      Can be seen on GE 38 56 05.58 n 121 36 50.61 e

                        F313 heading south towards Tjeldsundet. She has been at HaMek for a week or two now, but I haven't had time to get any good photos of her.

                          Oh, great! Then I guess F313 will be navy grey all over when visiting Kristiansund then, and not rusty brown...

                            Pictures of this vessel as seen in China has been posted on CVF before. (Can't remember where though)
