O quê?? :? Com certeza para reduzir os custos, porque o JSS canadiano, por exemplo, tem quanto a mim mais cara de... JSS. Citação de: "pedro"E para alem do mais o ministerio da defesa Holandes esta a receber creio que é 5.3% do pib holandesAs despesas de defesa da Holanda situam-se em mais ou menos 1,6 % do PIB (~2,7 % do orçamento do estado se não estou enganado). Creio que não há um único país, fora África e Médio Oriente, com despesas de defesa acima dos 5% do PIB.
E para alem do mais o ministerio da defesa Holandes esta a receber creio que é 5.3% do pib holandes
O quê?? Outro LPD para a Holanda???.... Não acham que 3 navios logísticos para um país como a Holanda é demasiado?
New Netherlands JSS Dutch Plan for Their Largest Naval Ship Ever Posted by Joris Janssen Lok at 1/15/2008 6:16 AM The backbone of a modern, 21st-century navy isn't its surface combatants or submarines. It is the large amphibious and/or logistic support ships it can deploy to trouble spots around the world, carrying helicopters, hospital facilities, an embarked landing force, supplies, fuel and a suite of C4I facilities. The Netherlands is planning to build its largest ship ever to be able to do just that. The new ship is designated the Joint Support Ship (JSS) and will have a displacement of 26,000 tons -- making it a tight fit to squeeze into Den Helder Naval Base. The JSS is to be ready by 2014 and design of the ship (by the Defense Materiel Organization DMO in close conjunction with TNO Defence & Security, Schelde Naval Shipbuilding, Imtech, Thales, and other industry partners) is starting for real now that the program to build four new Patrol Ships has moved into the production phase. The plan to build a JSS was first published in the 2005 Naval Study. The ship is to replace the fleet replenishment oiler HrMs Zuiderkruis. The JSS will have a large flight deck capable of supporting Boeing CH-47F Chinook helicopters. It will also be able to replenish other naval ships at sea, provide strategic sealift of strategic military equipment, and act as a seabase during crisis response operations worldwide. The JSS will join two Landing Platform Dock (LPD)-type ships that entered service with the Royal Netherlands Navy (RNLN) in 1998 and 2007, respectively (see the Jan/Feb issue of Defense Technology International (DTI) for more detail about these). Like these LPDs, the JSS will be based on Schelde's Enforcer family of large support ship designs (this was also used as the design for Britain's four new Bay-class amphibious support ships). Although senior sources in the RNLN so far have not been willing to confirm this, a logical step would be to try and get approval for a second JSS to replace the other fleet replenishment oiler in the Dutch fleet, HrMs Amsterdam, toward the end of the coming decade. After all, one JSS equals no JSS if the ship happens to be in dock for a major refit at the time a sudden crisis erupts. With a ship like the JSS, the Netherlands will be able to sea-base a significant aviation, logistic, C4I, disaster relief and humanitarian aid capability right offshore a crisis area struck by a natural or man-made disaster, a civil war or other major disruption.
