When modern warships confront ... sea storms


In theory, modern warships can withstand even more severe levels of level 12 storms, but "avoid the elephant with no shame".

Modern warships in the world today can withstand even more level 12 waves
Originally designed to be extremely durable with a solid structure, in theory, modern warships in the world today can fully withstand the level 12 waves even more. (Image source: Youtube.)


Sometimes naval warships are the most difficult means to perform a rescue mission at sea. However, warships often restrict their activities in the sea with strong storms, thousands of reluctant to confront big waves and high winds. (Image source: Youtube.)


This is because although the design is very solid, completely able to operate well after being crushed by the sea storm, but that does not mean that these ships will not suffer damage after each storm. (Image source: Youtube.)


Large waves will twist the hull in many different directions, although it can not damage the solid structure of the ship but can also impact, causing damage to the internal parts, especially the propeller. To be able to ride the waves through the storm, the engine must also operate at full capacity and increase or decrease the speed continuously, greatly affecting durability and possibly even damage during the storm.

Most modern naval ships today have very bulky and vulnerable superstructure. This is also the place to place parts such as signal radars, sensors, cloud antennas, ... all of which are extremely sensitive parts, very easy to damage and have large repair costs. (Image source: Electro.)

The ship was subject to continuous waves and strong shaking
In addition, the more dangerous is that when the ship is hit by continuous waves and shakes, the crew in the lower deck will certainly be injured by a collision, severe can lead to death. (Image source: Flickr.)

Consequently, naval ships usually avoid operating in areas with storms of level 8 or higher even though with their strong structure, they can fully withstand the wrecking of nature. (Image source: Youtube.)


When forced to operate in stormy waters, ships must be prepared in advance. All doors and vents on the ship need to be closed, reinforced firmly, must have shields, back-up glass in case the wave breaks the door, broken glass on the ship, the crew can immediately close the hole, preventing water from entering the ship.

Modern naval vessels today are always equipped with extremely expensive electronic devices, the common point of these electronic devices is that they are easily damaged if exposed to water. Having time to prepare, the crew can isolate and lock expensive electronic devices in a watertight compartment, minimizing the damage caused by nature. (Image source: 63high.)
