Oh I get it, the reason it's virtually invisible to radar is because it's so freaking small:

Looks like the wolves have been chewing on it.


It's delicious. Can you blame them?

vygramul: Animatronik: That's the point. Battleships were useful, they just didn't provide much value for the dollar in a big war, because they were headed for obsolescence and could be destroyed using much cheaper tech.

Their vulnerability wasn't the problem, once they respected air power. Sure, HMS Repulse was sunk by air attack. But look at its air defense:

6 × 3, 2 × 1 - 4-inch (102 mm) guns
2 × 1 - 3-inch (76 mm) anti-aircraft guns.

Now compare that to BB-61:

20 × 5 in (127.0 mm)/38 cal Mark 12 guns
80 × 40 mm/56 cal anti-aircraft guns
49 × 20 mm/70 cal anti-aircraft cannons

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sure I know which I'd rather go after in a low and slow torpedo bomber.

I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the Navy was down. I think that the problem *may* have been, that there was a aircraft carrier on the stage that was in danger of being *crushed* by a *dwarf*. Alright? That tended to understate the hugeness of the object.

kyleaugustus: $13 billion.  We could have ~13 Apollo-type moon missions for the cost of this thing.


Better than Apollo-13 type moon missions.

How are the sailors going to bomb our enemies if they can't even fit in the boat?!?

If they're going to build a boat for kids who fly really, really good and do other things good too ...it'll have to be at least 3 times that big!!

But how many airstrikes a day can it support? Does it mention that anywhere in the article?
