    LCS aren't bad. The problem was the 45 knot speed requirement. That problem doubled the machinery space and decreased reliability. Lower the speed requirement would solve a lot of problems, I'd...

    That brings up a good question, what exactly is a "frigate" these days? It seems like people use the word "frigate" to sound less warlike than "destroyer" and less colonial like than "cruiser."

    Oh no, I don't mean if he had a decent chance of retaking China. I'm wondering if he had to at least pretend to have a plan to retake China to keep his army happy and his people motivated.

    That sounds good, but USN has some requirements that other navies don't, mainly long endurance.

    USN is a global navy so the ship has to be an ocean going ship, with enough room for fuel and...

    #1 I hope no one's hurt

    #2 Did the carrier float by herself after the drydock sunk? Or did the drydock take her down?

    Hence my question of why not develop a traditional artillery round that weighs the same, has roughly the same balance, the exact same dimension, as the LRLAP? Plug them into the system and let 'er...

    So an Alvaro de Bazan derivative it is! We can go big or go small. Go big we get the Hobart class. Go small we get the Fridtjof Nansen class.

    At A$3B per ship, Hobart isn't exactly cheap.

    There will be the obligated mission creep. A simpler, ASW platform with point air defense capability will morph into a larger general purpose platform with local air defense capability, and possibly...

    Seriously, how difficult is it to design and produce a dumb version of LRLAP? Make a round that's exactly the same dimension, balance and weight. Fire it repeatedly. Chart it. You know, like in...

    Isn't the USN building, or planning to build, another class of frigate, the FFG(X)? Too bad Type 26 is not in the running. UK, Australia and Canada are going with Type 26.

    1. Why are Harpoons still launched from their signature quad canisters angled at 45 degrees, usually pointed directly at port and starboard side?

    220 rounds a minute? Great for shredding boat swarms, big ass CIWS, and since no warships are armored any more, 220 rounds a minute can do some serious damage to everything above the waterline.

    Thank you, AR.

    This is actually my next question. Are those bombs latched to the rack at a 45 degree angle? What if a latch at the bottom malfunctioned but the one on top released the bomb?
