The F-35 dropped a bomb on something I guess. Discuss this and other events that are current.

Only one variant left before the full F-35 trifecta has bombed in the Middle East at some point!

This is an artist's CGI render of what the F-22 may one day look like after the pilot neglects to confirm the landing gear are deployed:

The Truman thing is apparently about whether or not to go through with the midlife refueling and overhaul in 2024. Seems odd to not do it but the Pentagon apparently announces back in February that theyíd start decommissioning the ship instead when the refueling is necessary.

While we are building new carriers it seems weird for the CNO to want a smaller fleet.

Someone mentioned that in cspam and then told the story of how when a dude set off a charge on the Iowa, Reagan administration blamed it on " the gays"


wikipedia posted:

The first investigation into the explosion, conducted by the U.S. Navy, concluded that one of the gun turret crew members, Clayton Hartwig, who died in the explosion, had deliberately caused it. During the investigation, numerous leaks to the media, later attributed to U.S. Navy officers and investigators, implied that Hartwig and another sailor, Kendall Truitt, had engaged in a homosexual relationship and that Hartwig had caused the explosion after their relationship had soured. In its report, however, the U.S. Navy concluded that the evidence did not show that Hartwig was homosexual but that he was suicidal and had caused the explosion with either an electronic or chemical detonator.

Weren't manpower deficiecies cited at the heart of what.the Navy needs to address with it's current op tempo? Seems like keeping the carrier around and Manning a new one being constructed is gonna further constrain Manning for the target community

Manpower needs are always something the Navy needs to address. Doesn't even matter which navy we're talking about or even what century we're talking about.

That said my underinformed opinion is that decommissioning the Truman instead of biting the bullet and refueling her is probably a false economy considering how gung ho China is about carrier building.

It's very clear that Barr is a loving snake. Democrats are smart to his legal technicalities now, so they want a lawyer to do the House's questioning tomorrow. This Senate hearing is essentially worthless due to legal squirming and senators not bring smart to the legal poo poo.

For that reason, Barr is trying to get out of appearing at the House tomorrow. :laugh:

The Navy didn't actually want it retired anyway, it was a publicity stunt to protest carrier funding with the full knowledge that it would be blocked. This isn't the first time they've done this.
