meanmutton: grinding_journalist: You know what we should keep doing? Building giant ships, complex aircraft, and cumbersome land vehicles that require expensive, specialized infrastructure, personnel trained on systems so specific that not only can they only do "that one thing", but their skills are useless outside of the military, and take so long to research develop, and build that by the time they deploy, any enemy with a real chance of doing harm to them and their crew already knows how to do so.

What we SHOULDN'T do is spend the same money on developing swarms, fleets, and armies of disposable remotely piloted drones that reduce our loss of life, requisites for a deployed force, and necessary support infrastructure, because then we wouldn't have billions (trillions) of dollars of military contractor welfare handed out to companies (and the select few who decide where those dollars go) while not being accountable for any of it.

Do you know what a littoral combat ship is?


Better than a figurative combat ship?

fark you. It was $670 million of stimulating the economy. When it's destroyed and rebuilt, that much more economy stimulating.

But stealth could be countered if the enemy were to intercept our communications. Loose lips sink ships.

Perhaps the Navy would employ Navajo code talkers, so that we would only be vulnerable to an enemy with cunning linguists.

Tr0mBoNe: Marinette Marine shipyard


Thank you. They should be ashamed...if for no other reason than to allow the shiatty guns on their otherwise fine vessel.

I'm sure Wired will be the downfall of the US Navy, subby.
