 14 decks of American Zhun aircraft carrier were burned down and 11 decks were damaged, and the flight board was twisted and expanded


According to the report, gildi, the highest ranking officer of the US Navy and chief of naval operations, said in the summary report on the damage of the good man Richard amphibious assault ship, a series of explosions and 1200 u2103 high temperature damaged 11 decks, and the warship has 14 decks.

In an email, gildi said the severe fire caused extensive damage to the amphibious assault ship. Fire and flood damage occurred on 11 of the 14 decks, gildi wrote. From the flight deck, I went down five decks and inspected the superstructure of the ship.

The island of the ship was almost destroyed, some of the decks below were seriously damaged, and the flight deck of the division was twisted and inflated, gildi said

But in the email, gildy did not mention a key issue after the fire - what would happen to the amphibious assault ship. The U.S. Navy has a consistent tradition in repairing damaged warships. Just like repairing the Fitzgerald and McCann that have crashed, Congress usually agrees to spend the money. But it is unclear whether the U.S. Navy is willing to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to repair a potential aircraft carrier that has been in service for 22 years. After the fire of the Miami submarine in 2012, the U.S. Navy thought that the repair cost of about $700 million was too expensive, which was unreasonable.

Although the crew and firefighters responded quickly, the preliminary findings indicate that there are two main factors that affect the intensity, extent and speed of the fire, gildi said in the email First of all, the strong winds contributed to the fire, because the vehicle storage area was accessible to the well deck, which was open at the stern to allow a lot of air to enter. The second factor is multiple explosions, one of which is said to be heard 13 miles away.

In the e-mail, gildi also praised the quick response of hundreds of sailors to the fire, many of whom had not received orders but were quick to put out the fire. He also thanks the helicopter crew who took part in the fire fighting. They poured nearly 700000 gallons of water on the good Richard day and night. They also used infrared equipment to locate the fire, which played a crucial role in controlling the fire.
