Littoral Combat Ships (LCS)


BS.
Impeachment only matters to the political events. With the election year coming it’s more a slam to those running against the Sitting President than the other matters.
Remember that two other sitting Presidents have been impeached but neither has been removed and although the House impeached him that’s the start of the process the Senate is dominated by the President’s own party not the Opposition it take a Super majority to remove the President unless the Republicans defect in droves it’s impossible to remove President Trump via this means. All it is a smear. The only way to oust Trump is a Presidential election defeat in December.

actually now I think it's treasonous to lose command of the sea, I'm wondering who's behind this (don't tell it's the Admirals themselves)

If you read between the lines the navy and OMB are engaging in a numbers game as for LCS good riddance Burkes ehh not really surprising FFGX they are cutting one maybe (not really) just doing 3 the last year instead of 2 same for the Virginia class it's just a political football getting bounced around

Just add 32 more to the number and I am good
I suspect there are too many Admirals. There are two many of them that they can't even agree on a coherent plan. Let's just build the LCS and then retire them after a few years. That sounds like a plan. LOL.

not sure what you're saying: 1 (one) FFG(X) has been funded, with the caveat that is the US steel

and now I see it's called "paradigm shift" what's going on
:
"The paradigm shift is moving the fleet away from platforms like the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers — enormous, tightly packed ships bristling with capabilities, weapons and sensors, but enormously expensive to build, maintain and upgrade."

up to this point:

“The Navy is also likely to propose revising ship counting rules to add unmanned vessels, which would let it still reach 355,” Clark said. “That is likely the reason the Acting [Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly] talks about reaching 355 ships by 2030, even as the DoD budget currently proposes to shrink the manned portion of the fleet.”

and thought my blood pressure became too high, so I quit reading

what the Pentagon is going to do, buy about sixty pool mattresses from China?

Jura it's simple in 2021 and 2022 they were going to build 2 each year this proposal stretches that out to 2 each year beginning in 2023 with the last year they are going to build 3 ffgx instead of 2

later I kinda figured what you'd meant, anyway future FFG(X) numbers it's pie in sky
