    На верфи Ingalls Shipbuilding (США) началось строительство десантного корабля Bougainville

    На судостроительном заводе Ingalls Shipbuilding (входит в группу Huntington Ingalls Industries/HII) 15 октября 2018 года приступили к производству элементов десантного вертолетного корабля типа Bougainville (LHA 8), строящегося по заказу ВМФ США, сообщает пресс-служба судостроительной группы.

    Президент группы HII Брайан Куччиас сообщил, что это уже16-е по счету крупнопалубное десантное судно, построенное HII, и верфи группы готовы строить серию таких судов.

    Возможности проекта судов класса America в конструкции судна Bougainville будут расширены стапель-палубой для размещения и спуска двух десантных катеров на воздушной подушке морской пехоты США или одного танкового десантного судна. Также у судна типа Bougainville расширена взлетная палуба, предназначенная для воздушного судна, построенного по проекту Joint Strike Fighter и Osprey V-22 для наземных и воздушных ударов. Расширение палубной площади удалось достичь за счет уменьшения рубки на верхней палубе и дополнительного спонсона.

    LHA 8 станет вторым военным судном, которое будет носить название Bougainville в честь Бугенвильской операции в годы Второй мировой войны, длившейся с 1943 по 1944 год.

    Группа компаний Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) проектирует, строит и ремонтирует ядерные и неядерные суда для ВМС США и береговой охраны и обеспечивает послепродажное обслуживание военных судов по всему миру. Создана в 31 марта 2011 года в результате отделения от Northrop Gumman. Штат сотрудников группы насчитывает около 37 тыс. человек. HII также предоставляет широкий спектр изделий и услуг для энергетической индустрии, частных и государственных заказчиков, в том числе Министерства энергетики США.
