    Replacing the stealth coating often is a good source of recurring revenue. Why do you hate shareholders so much?
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Itīs rubber/composite coating that absorbs sound and makes it harder to find on sonar.

    USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) departs for New York.




    Too bad we didn’t have a couple more of these ships to send to all corners of the world in peacetime. The sight of that big hospital floating in to help people in need would be remembered.

    Doctor diplomacy is for commies. And besides, you'd need an insurance barge per hospital ship to process the patients before anyone got on.

    In what sounds like it could be an April Fools joke, a Venezuelan Navy offshore patrol vessel recently sank after ramming a cruise liner in the Caribbean Sea. The cruise ship, which had no passengers on board at the time and has a reinforced hull to sail through ice-filled waters, suffered only minimal damage in what the operating company, Columbia Cruise Services, has called an "act of aggression ... in international waters."

    an "act of imperial aggression"

    That reminds me of the German freighter sinking an Indian frigate years ago.

    Fire Breaks Out On China's New Type 075 Amphibious Assault Ship
    Looks like the Type 075s have significant integral fire support capability; look at how well it's supporting that fire!

    Insane.
    What, as opposed to having one big nuclear reactor power the whole thing? It makes more sense to have 8 smaller ones for distributing weight more evenly, also it compartmentalizes damage control so you don't loose power throughout the entire ship if that one nuclear reactor gets damaged.
