    Are we about to see a handbrake turn (another one) from the US Navy?

    Congressional Research Service - Navy DDG-51 and DDG-1000 Destroyer Programs: Background and Issues for Congress
    If USN is rebalancing in favour of its new frigate, that therefore makes the frigate selection far more important, and almost certainly rules out an LCS or Legend-class derivative.

    But after a generation of "dominance" rhetoric and chasing transformational technologies, bolstered recently by a healthy dose of "Make America Great Again" … are we really about to see USN make a foreign-designed vessel the centrepiece of its new fleet architecture? A generation after pulling out of NFR-90?

    It would seem ridiculous if it weren't so thoroughly plausible and sensible.

    Ahha. I was reading a report on this elsewhere but it lacked that quote. So this issues are Space <my guess being internal>
    Weight<my guess being for transport>
    And Power. <little surprised. They just updated the power packs of Stryker. Bradley is notorious for being under powered. This might be because they are trialing using gen 1 Strykers.

    and now there's this beautiful sentence inside
    Acting SECDEF Shanahan Reminds Pentagon to Stay Apolitical Following ‘McCain Situation’ https://news.usni.org/2019/06/11/ac...to-stay-apolitical-following-mccain-situation
    :

    "However, our policy and tradition also limit active partisan political activities or actions that could appear to imply DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of a political candidate, campaign, or cause."
