Cutting-edge Navy warship being built in Maine - Yahoo! News
Not a Battleship , its a destroyer and its expensive as all hell.
swing and a miss, huh?
that's great, but how many of those can we afford to build?
They finally got a bigger boat.
Cool boat. can i have it?
Can it be sunk? Yes. Any vessel can be sunk.
i hope this isn't a repeat of titanic by calling a water vessel 'unsinkable'.
Funds were allocated for 32, but now it has been cut down to 3.
Might as well not build any of these things, or instead opt to build a dozen cheaper vessels. You can't project power with just three warships.
What if those warships are aircraft carriers?
These three ships by themselves aren't going to make a damn difference but here's how I see it. The Pentagon is undergoing a massive reorganisation and refocus following the Strategic Defense Review, so rather than plough ahead with all of these ships that might end up becoming obsolete or irrelevant, they're pushing ahead with a limited number so that these vessels can become testbeds for all of this new technology.
Missile at B7!
But to answer the the title of the thread:
Yes, all I need is a week or so.
It's needs to fly, and to have a bad mouthed Captain with an eyepatch.
Watch Some random pirates sink it.
Probably half of one.
I can think of at least 5 Different ships in which the makers said it could not be sunk.
Separate names with a comma.
