SECNAV Names New Sub USS Vermont

first_img View post tag: sub Mabus named the submarine to honor the longstanding partnership its namesake state has had with the Navy.“From our nation’s beginning, the people of Vermont have tirelessly supported our Navy, enabling us to become the unparalleled fighting force we are today,” said Mabus. “I am here on the banks of Lake Champlain, to once again honor the sailors and Marines who have come from this great state, and to honor your support of our Navy and Marine Corps and your naval history.”Vermont’s Lake Champlain was the site of two critical historic naval battles. Under the command of Commodore Benedict Arnold, the 1776 Battle of Valcour Island had a profound impact on the outcome of the Revolutionary War, and during the War of 1812, the U.S. defended Lake Champlain against invasion from Great Britain in the Battle of Plattsburgh.“The name USS Vermont has a long history in our Navy,” said Mabus. “In honor of the victories on Lake Champlain, following the War of 1812, the first USS Vermont was laid down and became one of our nation’s largest and most powerful ships. The second USS Vermont was one of our great battleships in the years before World War I, and was one of the ships that led the Great White Fleet around the world.”This is the first ship named for Vermont since 1920 when the second USS Vermont was decommissioned.Virginia-class submarines have enhanced stealth, sophisticated surveillance capabilities, and special warfare enhancements that enable them to meet the Navy’s multi-mission requirements.Virginia-class submarines have the capability to attack targets ashore with highly accurate Tomahawk cruise missiles and conduct covert long-term surveillance of land areas, littoral waters or other sea-based forces. Other missions include anti-submarine and anti-ship warfare; mine delivery and minefield mapping. They are also designed for special forces delivery and support.Each Virginia-class submarine is 7,800-tons and 377 feet in length, has a beam of 34 feet, and can operate at more than 25 knots submerged. It is designed with a reactor plant that will not require refueling during the planned life of the ship, reducing lifecycle costs while increasing underway time. The submarine will be built in partnership with General Dynamics/Electric Boat Corp. in Groton, Connecticut.[mappress]Press Release, September 19, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: names SECNAV Names New Sub USS Vermont View post tag: News by topic September 19, 2014 View post tag: americas View post tag: SECNAV Authoritiescenter_img View post tag: USS Vermont View post tag: Naval Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus hosted a ship-naming ceremony Sept. 18 to announce that SSN 792, a Virginia-class attack submarine, will bear the name USS Vermont.

Former England captains criticise Rabada ban

first_img(REUTERS)-Three former England captains united on Saturday to condemn the one-match ban given to South African paceman Kagiso Rabada.He will miss the second Test starting on Friday after receiving a fourth demerit point in 24 months for what the International Cricket Council called “inappropriate language” towards batsman Ben Stokes in the first test at Lord’s on Friday.The three previous points were all for “deliberate physical contact” against Sri Lanka’s Niroshan Dickwella in February.“It seems a nonsense to me that those two things combined have resulted in a test match ban,” Michael Atherton told Sky Sports viewers after watching film of both incidents.“Three demerit points for that slight bit of contact with Dickwella and then yesterday when it’s hardly directed at Ben Stokes.”“For me it’s ridiculous,” said one of Atherton’s predecessors Ian Botham.“It’s a physical game and you’re talking about heat-of-the-moment exchanges. That’s just a nudge.”A third former captain, David Gower, agreed.“It’s highlighted by the fact that those points from a previous offence mean he’s not going to be playing in the next test match of the series. It is a very, very harsh punishment.”South Africa are already missing paceman Dale Steyn for the whole series with a shoulder injury and on Saturday fellow seamer Vernon Philander was taken to hospital for an x-ray after being hit on the hand during his innings of 52. The x-ray showed no bones were broken.He was last man out as South Africa were dismissed for 361, 97 behind on first innings.last_img read more
