Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
That ship would look even better submerged and resting on the bottom of a very deep part of the Pacific.Thanks for the post.Paul L. Quandt
Maybe Hillary helped broker the deal.
I'll buy beer for the entire crew of the US submarine that puts a few fish into her and sends her to Davey Jones.
A "Down the Throat" shot
While we're giggling about the Adm. Kuznetsov, they are laughing at the Ford.
Eventually, and at great cost, the problems with the Ford will be fixed. But, how useful are big carrier groups in an increasingly AI world of drones and missiles?
Looks like they need to stow the starboard anchor unless the photo caught it coming home.
I noticed that too. Could that be a tug on the far left? Maybe she's coming into port somewhere.
I see land behind her so leaving port, I think that thing on the left is just a bouy. I think they still say it's a "training" vessel.
Carriers are for first world super powers that wish to project power over 2nd and third world nations. Russia, with an economy the size of Italy, but with powerful people wanting to do her harm, invested their limited resources in ways to sink carriers. Let's hope those trying to play "let's you and him fight" don't get their way and we can all just talk nonsense on the internet about whether or not those missiles would work or not
Again, the Italian nonsense. Russia”s economy (PPP) is larger than Germany’s. That is obvious when you consider the range of activities Russia participates in, like a manned space program, which the US no longer has. Russia is primarily a land power; all its seaport are closed off from the open sea. It neeeds aircraft, missiles, and subs to defend against the US.
