The new U.S. Navy...

Category Humor

With thanks to Bas for passing this along...


The effects of budget cuts on the Navy are reflected in their most recent acquisition of the modified shallow draft aircraft carrier. Though not quite equal to the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN 76) or the precomm George HW Bush (CVN 77), it's proponents tout it's maneuverability, low profile, and reduced operating costs associated with its fuel consumption and reduced manning requirements. The only complaint received thus far are is from the pilots who think the squad bay has lost some of it's luster.

There have also been discussions among senior Naval and Coast Guard staff who are considering its use in the war on terrorism as part of the fleet used to maintain Maritime Domain Awareness.
