    I'm wondering if the USN is on the path of the Russian Navy like a quarter of century ago

    Modly: Navy Current Warship Mix Is Not Optimal for Future Fight https://news.usni.org/2019/10/28/modly-navy-current-warship-mix-is-not-optimal-for-future-fight
    :

    “If you look at what it would take to do that – and we laid this into our 30-year shipbuilding plan – it’s going to be very, very difficult for us to do that, A) based on that force structure, and B) based on the budget and top line. So we’re all sort of coming to this realization now that there’s a math problem that we need to try to solve, and we have to be creative about how we’re going to solve it,” Modly said.

    Marines, Navy Considering ‘Alternate’ Amphibs to Supplement Today’s Fleet https://news.usni.org/2019/10/29/ma...-alternate-amphibs-to-supplement-todays-fleet
    :

    Capt. Brian Metcalf, the San Antonio-class program manager ... “We have defined, unfortunately, the ARG as a combination of one each of those three ships for entirely too long. Now, what if I could describe to you an amphibious readiness group that was an LPD with four [Littoral Combat Ships]? Two of them outfitted with mine packages, two of them with surface-to-surface weapons? Does that sound like an amphibious readiness group?"

    no, it doesn't, in fact it sounds like you lost your mind, Captain

    I think it is a prime example how NOT to design and manage complex machines/projects.

    They should teach it on every university as a negative example how to do engineering design and project management.

    Of course it is in close race with the F-35 of course : )
