    If Argentina was stupid enough to attack the Falklands again, I'm pretty sure the the RN would send every Type 45, 42, and 23 they could muster. Of course in a few years they CVFs will be here...

    A PRC carrier would wield a great deal of influence if sent to show the flag. That is until a US or allied carrier shows up and outclasses it.

    I was just thinking back on a scene from Stealth (I know), where there was an unmanned airship hovering the Indian Ocean serving as a tanker aircraft. Makes you think, in permissive enviroments where...

    Because grown ups discuss things that they find interesting. Naval warfare is interesting. I have no vested intrest in the Type 45, but that doesn't mean I can discuss it. By your "logic" since none...

    The Kirov's main weapon is the Shipwreck ASM, but like tphuang said, it's not a carrier.

    The Kuznetsov only carries SAMs and CIWS as far as I know, but the Russians are prone to putting ASMs o...

    I could care less what kind of ship the British build, I'm not from there. If they want an expensive, single use ship that's their business, I'm just voicing my opinions. You can either offer...

    I'd bet a SM-3 can though. That's assuming the carreir even survived long enough to launch planes. You'd have to think any Russian carrier would be a prime target for all sorts of nastiness in the...

    Military Airships

    I was kicking around some ideas earlier today and was wondering if the old concept of using airships for military applications was still sound.

    Several years back I read an article in Proceedings...

    Neither force alone nor civil affairs operations alone work particularly well. There has to be the right mix and this seems to be a little off to one extreme to me.

    I'm assuming it's enormous longevity has something to do with it.

    As far as tankers go, the KC-10 is proably the best (I still wanna see a
