    1. I do think it looks decent and probably has more value/dollar than our ships. Part of the problem with the US military is that everyone knows it’s a virtually bottomless purse if you can win the contract.

      Look at the LCS, which you mentioned. Started out looking like a good idea to build a large number of relatively cheap ships. Even better, because two designs were going to go head to head to see which was better and which was the better value. Both skyrocketed over budget, over schedule, and under performance. Then BOTH won the contest.

      What a frikkin joke. Everyone knows it.
