The US Navy’s Future Force

Welcome to the show. Many of us have served on several different platforms. Aboard ship, it could have been a carrier of frigates, maybe even a patrol craft. Pilots may have flown Hornets, Super Hornets, Greyhounds, maybe even the P-3 Orion. What will today’s Sailors be manning tomorrow? Well, the Navy’s been looking ahead…here’s a look at what our fleet might look like in the not too distant future.
歡迎光臨本節目。我們許多人都服務於一些不同的工作平台上。在船上,它可能是一艘航空母艦的艦隊,也許甚至是一艘巡邏艇。 飛行員也許是飛大黃蜂戰機、超級大黃蜂戰機、灰狗運輸機、甚至是獵戶座巡邏機。今日的海軍將如何掌控明天呢?海軍一直是在展望未來…來看看在不久的未來我們艦隊的模樣。

Welcome to future force. Let’s take a look at some of the platforms that will make up the Navy of Tomorrow.
- The F-35 joint strike fighter, the future of Navy air dominance.
- The littoral combat ship, extending sea control from the deep blue to the coast line.
- The Virginia attack class submarine, dominating the undersea battle space.
- The San Antonio class LPD, projecting expeditionary power across the spectrum of warfare.

- F-35聯合打擊戰機。海軍未來的空中優勢。
- 沿海戰艦。控制海洋從深海延伸至近海。
- 維吉尼亞級攻擊潛艦。掌控海底戰鬥區域。
- 聖安東尼級海陸空協同作戰艦,預期應付各種戰爭情況的遠征武力。

Air dominance, its future lies in the wingspan of the F-35 Lightning 2, the joint strike fighter. Three different models are currently in development to serve the needs of the Navy, the Marines and the Air Force - giving each service a stealth fighter suited to its particular mission. The F-35 will replace the Navy’s Super Hornet, continuing naval aviations ability to project power ashore from the sea.
空中優勢。它的未來是仰賴在聯合打擊戰機F-35 閃電2號。
目前有三種機型正在發展以應付海軍、陸戰隊和空軍的需求 - 提供每一個軍種一種隱形戰機以適合它的特殊任務。F-35將取代海軍的超級大黃蜂戰機,以繼續掌控從海上到陸上的空中巡弋能力。

Back on the surface, not all ships are cut from the same cloth. Introducing Littoral Combat Ship 2 (LCS-2) - Independence. Designed to operate in coastal waters, or littorals, LCS-2 has a main hull and two outrigger hulls which give Independence a tight turning radius. Having exceeded 40 knots in a trial voyage, Independence will soon join the fleet with other ship in her class: LCS-1 Freedom. LCS-1 was commissioned in 2008 and is manned by two rotating crews of just 40 sailors each. Also able to reach speeds in excess of 40 knots, Freedom achieves her speed by displacing less water and planing above the waves much like a jet ski. The LCS characteristics make it the ideal platform engaging the irregular warfare in maritime security operations.
在海面上,並不是所有的船艦都是一樣的。現在介紹的是沿海戰艦 – Independence(獨立號)。LCS-2是設計用來近海或沿海水域使用的,有一個主要的船殼和二個船舷殼,它可以使獨立號有最大的迴轉半徑。試航的時速超過40節,獨立號將會很快的加入艦隊和她同級的LCS-1 Freedom(自由號)一起服役。
LCS-1在2008年服役,現有二班各40人輪流操作。Freedom(自由號) 時速也可以超過40節,是以排水量較少和像一架滑水噴射機在水浪上飛馳來達到這個速度。LCS的特性使得它成為應付海上安全、變化多端戰爭的理想武力。

The next platform in the future force has already been prowling the undersea battle space for years - the Virginia class attack submarine. Its mission is to seek and destroy enemy ships, but its superior shallow-water handling also lends itself to supporting special operations forces. The multi-mission Virginia class sub will continue to dominate in the littorals and the open oceans for years to come.
下一個未來的武力早已經在海底戰場巡弋多年了 - 維吉尼亞級攻擊潛艦。它的任務是尋找和摧毀敵艦,但它的淺水域能力也可以使得它去支援各種特殊任務。多功能的維吉尼亞級攻擊潛艦未來將會繼續在沿海和大洋中保持優勢。

The Navy future force will continue to help Marines respond to global crises. The San Antonio class Landing Platform Dock (LPD) hit the fleet in 2006. With four ships already commissioned and five more in construction, each new ship has improved by incorporating lessons learned from its predecessor. This newest class of LPD can carry 720 troops and have has over 23,000 square feet of vehicle storage space to get Marines and their equipment to the fight, making it the future of amphibious transport ships.

The joint strike fighter, the LCS, the Virginia class submarine, and the San Antonio class LPD - just a glimpse into your Navy future force.
聯合打擊戰機、LCS、維吉尼亞級潛艦和聖安東尼級登陸艦 - 驚鴻一瞥你們未來的海軍武力。
