Posted on 11/04/2009 12:45:45 PM PST by Jeff Head
I created a web site that focuses on the brand new classes of warships that the US Navy is currently building for the 21st century. It includes a lot of specifications, history, and good pictures of each class. The logo and links to the various ship classes are included below. (Picture intesive links)
Just click on each of the Pictures or names of the vessels and they will take you to the page for that vessel at the site : http://www.jeffhead.com/usn21
These vessels are critical to our ability to maintain our unassailable edge in the near to mid-term future. Other nations, some of them likely adversarial in the future, continue to build rapidy and our edge must be maintained if the sea lanes are to remain free.
Other naval oriented web sites I have created regarding this include:
I sure hope I’m wrong.
I enjoyed every day of my twenty year career in the U.S. Navy and hope future generations can serve their country in the same manner.
Searching for a gift to give my Dad who served in the Navy during WWII, I discovered this web site.. NAVY CRUISE BOOKS ON CD.
I was able to purchase my Dad's ships cruise book, The USS Mississippi, and it was the same cruise book page by page I remember seeing when I was just a kid, but on CD. That original book fell apart back in the 1960s and was eventually lost or tossed. Sadly my Dad passed away before the CD was delivered so he never did get to see it.
Glad I’m not driving then.
I could and probably will spend hours looking at the various ships. Some dedicated time went into your site and I’m very impressed. One concern I have for our navy is the potential impact of anti ship missiles. Seems there are few measures to protect against them short of taking out the sources.
Thanks for your hard work.
Thanks for the ping!
Navy family ping list
Carriers are not intended for social calls or regattas. They pilot them by the comprehensive array of instruments with which they are equipped, not simply by sight.
The “Ford” and “Zumwalt” class huh. Swell just Swell, We R Screwed!
It'll take a while for me to get through this one ... Thanx.
Bump and bookmarked for later
Nicely done Jeff, thanks for the ping!
I was aware of electromag replacing steam cats. Do you know anything about electromag arresting gear or was the above a misprint?
A USN BTT. I sure miss those midnight Mail Buoy Watches...
Thanks Bob. I have worked with the Navy on several occassions in my career. My Dad was a combat vet of the PTO in World War II and then several years a reserve officer after the war. My son-in-law is currently active duty Navy...a submariner.
I’m glad I’m not too.
Actually, the RAM system, the Standard Missiles and AEGIS, and the Phalynx CIWS all have good records of taking out anti-ship missiles in training exercises. All of our capitol ships are armed with multiple stations of two or more of those options.
Actually, I have to say, after reading of Gerald Ford’s exploits and service during the second World War and his heroism in the hell he went through on the one carrier...given his rise to the CINC coupled with that...and despite his lackluster performance as President...I can see why they did it.
Nice job (looks like a LOT of work). I sent your url to a lifelong buddy of mine who was a swabbie for 27 years...he will love it.
But they are also expected to get from point a to point b without running over something or running aground.
They pilot them by the comprehensive array of instruments with which they are equipped, not simply by sight.
None of which are as accurate as a Mark One, Mod One Eyeball when it comes to conning a ship.
