Virginia-class submarines are armed with Tomahawk missiles, torpedoes and other weapons. The design of the Virginia-class submarines integrates a “fly-by-wire” capability which allows the ship to quietly stay in shallow waters without having to surface.Blocks I and II, totaling 10 ships, have already been handed over to the Navy. The construction of Block III subs, under way at the moment, will include installation of a new Virginia Payload Tubes, aimed at cutting costs.Block IV will consist of 9-10 submarines, scheduled for construction in 2014. The first Block V submarine is slated to begin construction in fiscal 2019, according to Navy officials.With respect to Block V construction, the subs from Block V will have increased capability, including a new “module” which will boost its Tomahawk missile firing capability from 12 to 40.Majority of the work stipulated by the contract action will take place in Sunnyvale, Calif. (30 percent); Coatesville, Pa. (10 percent); Phillipsburg, N.J. (10 percent); Groton, Conn. (7 percent); Newport News, Va. (7 percent); and various other sites throughout the United States where the remainder of the work will be staged.The completion of the work is set for January 2015.

The Foreign Ministry is working to build momentum for the discussion of an international civil law bill after years of it being shelved, in a move that aims to ride the wave of reform currently being pursued by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.The ministry’s director general for legal affairs and international treaties, Damos Agusman, said Thursday that there was a need to put in place an international civil law to support the President’s focus on economic diplomacy and increase businesses’ and investors’ confidence in Indonesia.“This actually falls under the responsibility of the Law and Human Rights Ministry but the Foreign Ministry has stepped up considering the urgency in an era of globalization and international relations that requires us to have an adequate legal system,” Damos told reporters on the sidelines of a workshop held … LOG INDon’t have an account?

Aubameyang was given a straight red card in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace for a crude lunge on home midfielder Max Meyer. Nketiah is still set to depart on loan. The forward will now miss Premier League matches against Sheffield United and Chelsea as well as the FA Cup fourth round clash at Bournemouth , but Nketiah is still set to be loaned out despite the skipper’s absence, with Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Sheffield Wednesday all said to be keen. “I didn’t before (think of using Nketiah) and at the moment we have to think mid-long term with Eddie,” said Arteta after the game at Selhurst Park. “We have to respect his evolution and development, we don’t have to make a decision just based on two or three games.” Arteta added that he was pleased at Arsenal’s increased show of aggression in the game, despite it partially leading to the red card. “Absolutely (pleased), I asked them to go 100 miles per hour, chase the ball and be very aggressive when we don’t have it to win it as quickly as possible and they tried to do that,” he said.last_img read more
