  1. The São Paulo (A12) is a Clemenceau Class aircraft carrier in service with the Brazilian Navy. Previously operated as Foch (R 99) by the French Navy, the aircraft carrier was acquired by Brazil in September 2000. It was built by the Chantier de l'Atlantique in St Nazaire, France. The Clemenceau Class consists of two aircraft carriers that served the French Navy from 1961 to 2000. The lead ship in the class, Clemenceau, was decommissioned in 1997. The keel for the second ship, Foch (later São Paulo), was laid in February 1957 and the ship was launched in July 1960. The ship was commissioned by the French Navy in July 1963. It was recommissioned by the Brazilian Navy in November 2000. The São Paulo has a length of 266m, beam of 51.2m and draught of 8.6m. Full load displacement of the ship is 33,673t. The ship can sail at a maximum speed of 30kt, and accommodate 1,920 personnel including ship company, airgroup and troops. Clemenceau Class aviation facilities The São Paulo features a 266m flight deck area with a track at an angle of 8°. The hangar measures 180m in length and 22m-24m in width, and occupies a total area of 3,300m². It is equipped with two elevators with the capacity to lift a 15t aircraft in nine seconds. The flight is fitted with two steam catapults, one located forward on the deck and the other at an angle. The catapults can launch aircraft weighing between 15t and 20t to 110 nodes. The aircraft carrier has space to store 3,000m³ of jet fuel and 1,300t of ammunition. The ship can also carry up to 37 fixed-wing aircraft and two helicopters, including A-4KU Skyhawks, AS 532 SC Cougars, SH-3A / B Sea King helicopters and Eurocopter AS350 Ecureuils transport helicopters. It can also operate Argentine Navy Super Etendards and S-2T Turbo Tracke Weapon systems The ship is armed with four 100mm modèle 64 turrets and two SACP Crotale EDIR (infrared differential ecartometry) systems. The Crotale EDIR short-range anti-air missile can be used against low-flight anti-ship missiles and aircraft. "The Clemenceau Class consists of two aircraft carriers that served the French Navy from 1961 to 2000." The Crotale system integrates the main sensors, the firing system of the turret and a central coordination system. The turret can hold eight ready-to-launch missiles in watertight containers. 18 further missiles are stored in a magazine behind the turret. Four dual Simbad launchers and five 12.7mm machine guns are also fitted on the vessel. Radars and sensors The Clemenceau Class is equipped with DRBV-23B air sentry radar, DRBV-15 low-altitude or surface sentry radar, NRBA-50 approach radar, DRBI-10 tri-dimensional air sentry radar, DRBC-32C fire radar and DRBN-34 navigation radars. Propulsion The aircraft carrier is powered by four Parsons steam turbines producing 126,000shp. These turbines are attached to two propellers through two shafts. Six Indret boilers provide steam for the main propulsion turbines. On-board power is generated by two turbo alternators and six 2,000kW diesel generators. The propulsion system provides a maximum speed of 30kt and a range of 7,500nm at 18kt speed.

    Elli-class frigate

    Iwnikara, on 24 July 2013 - 10:38 PM, said: Good info. One more thing though. The Elli Frigate (F450) was modernized during 2011 to extend its natural lifetime cuz the Hellenic Navy aims to keep this vessel in good condition until 2018+. It is said (rumors) that the greek government will order 4 new types of frigates until 2020 and will decomission the 4 oldest type 'S' (Elli class) ships. Thanks for the add :honoring: :honoring:
  10. Väinämöinen was a Finnish coastal defence ship, the sister ship of the Finnish Navy's flagship Ilmarinen and also the first ship of her class. She was built at the Crichton-Vulcan shipyard in Turku and was launched in 1932. Winter War During the Winter War, the two coastal defence ships were transferred to the Åland islands to protect against invasion. When the ice cover started to become too thick in December, the ships were transferred to Turku, where their anti-aircraft artillery aided in the defence of the city. Continuation War The only time Väinämöinen and Ilmarinen fired their heavy artillery against an enemy was at the beginning of the Continuation War, during the Soviet Red Army evacuation of their base at the Hanko Peninsula. Väinämöinen also participated in the distraction manoeuvre Operation Nordwind on 13 September 1941, during the course of which her sister ship Ilmarinen was lost to mines. In 1943 "Detachment Väinämöinen", which consisted of Väinämöinen, six VMV patrol boats and six motor mine sweepers, was moved east in to take positions along the coast between Helsinki and Kotka. She did not actively participate in many operations, since the heavier Soviet naval units never left Leningrad, where they were used to effect as floating batteries during the siege. As a result, Väinämöinens primary operational duties were to patrol the Gulf of Finland between the minefields "Seeigel" and "Nashorn", as well as protection of the German-Finnish anti-submarine net across the gulf. During the Soviet assault in the summer of 1944, the Soviets put much weight in trying to find and sink the Väinämöinen. Reconnaissance efforts revealed a large naval ship anchored in Kotka harbour and the Soviets subsequently launched a large-scale air attack by 132 bombers and fighters. However the target was not Väinämöinen — instead it was the German AA cruiser Niobe. Postwar After the end of the Continuation War it was decided to hand over the Väinämöinen as war reparations to the Soviet Union. The ship was handed over on 29 May 1947 to the Soviet Baltic Fleet, where it was renamed Vyborg. The ship served over 6 years in the Red Fleet at the Soviet base in Porkkala, Finland. The ship was called Vanya (a Russian short form of the name Ivan) by the sailors of the Baltic Fleet. The Vyborg was modernized during the 1950s and served for a while as a residential ship in Tallinn. Preparations to scrap the ship were begun in 1958. During this time, there were talks to return the ship to Finland. The ship was, however, scrapped in 1966 at a Leningrad scrapyard. According to Soviet calculations, they received 2,700 tons of metal from the ship.
