    More nay-sayers...and that is not surprosing.

    Many of the people in these offices are hold overs from the Obama administration who wanted to, and in fact were responsible for holding up several US programs.

    I know people working on the Rial Gun project and they indicate that they are meeting and exceeding demands and expectations.

    It is true that the 155mm rail gun would only be installed on the ZUmwalts.

    But smaller versions can be installed on other vesells including the new Ford carriers who have pletny of power for the CIWS versions of the weapons.

    So we shall see what time brings.
