    Tragic for sure...a bunch of sailors dead. Could be worse....at the least it seems in both occassions emergency protocols and procedures were followed well.

    So what do folks think?

    1) Poor training?
    2) Poor discipline?
    3) Flawed ship software update?
    4) Hacked ship's systems?
    5) EW shutdown of radar systems?
    6) Sheer coincidence?

    Given that this took place in very busy waters there should have been many non computer based monitoring systems active, human lookouts, so any computer based systems should in many ways have been backups. If there was some kind of computer issue or power shut down then there should have been more lookouts posted.

    Following the Fitzgerald such a short time ago this event is inexplicable.

    HAhahahaa... hilarious.... so it says that Russian subs are 80% of what US subs were 30 years ago during the cold war...

    The big upgrade for the new virginia class sub is an extra vertical launch tube bin with 6 extra missiles over the standard two bins with 12 missiles.

    So these super american subs will carry 18 subsonic cruise missiles and that will make them so sophisticated and powerful.

    Yasen class Russian subs carry 32 tubes for either long range subsonic cruise missiles or supersonic rocket powered anti sub missiles, or supersonic anti ship missiles.

    They talk about 2020-2025... by then the Russian subs will be carrying Mach 8 hypersonic Zircon anti ship missiles... perhaps that will make them 50% of US subs from WWII maybe.

    What a load of crap.

    Actually, they said russians are 80% of what they (russians and not US) were during cold war. And they are wright because compared to the more than 300 subs that soviet navy had, russia is not as much powerfull as the soviet navy even if in terms of technology they are better than in the 80s.

    The smaller number of vessels means less time in the sea to control other nations.

    It is like the strategic patrol that resumed in 2007 because they couldn t sustain the effort before that.

    But if they do what they say they will do, get gorshkovs and more SSN, that will change.

    If that is what they were trying to say then they are still wrong.

    During the cold war the at sea rate of the Soviet sub force was tiny.... less than 25%.

    Now they have far fewer subs but they are vastly more active...

    And one presumes as their numbers increase their activities will also increase too.

    Yeah they are more active but 25% of more than 300 subs is huge and they had much more big ships that were sailing around the world.

    But the goals were not the same. Russia doesn't need to defend communist government around the world, just defend their interst and borders so it's a pointless discussion to compare them.

    The puzzle in this picture is where are the other ships? I thought a Carrier Task Force was larger than a carrier and 4 others (plus submarines).

    A photo the USN probably wishes was never taken, double ignomy. By an ally as well.

    Statistics: the US Navy's naval staff as of 01/01/2018

    The presented statistical study takes into account warships of the main classes (nuclear and non-nuclear submarines, aircraft carriers, cruisers, destroyers, frigates, corvettes, littoral warships, seagoing landing ships) with a total displacement of 2000 tons (above 1000 tons). that component of the Navy, which is capable of projecting force to remote regions of the world. The ships transferred to the fleet (decommissioned), starting from 01/01/2018, are included in the initial data for reference - they are not included in the total number of ships or in the total displacement. The names of the ships are given in Russian transcription, tested for compliance with either established (traditional) writing, or dictionary phonetic transcription.

    The NSM anti-ship missile was chosen for arming the American LCS ships

    On May 31, 2018, the Naval Sea Systems Command of the United States Navy gave the American corporation Raytheon a contract worth $ 14.856016 million for the delivery of the first batch (officially undisclosed - but apparently, eight) of NSM anti-ship missiles under the Over- the-Horizon Weapon Systems for equipping the "Littoral" LCS combat ships of the American fleet. The contract includes the delivery of one set of fire control systems, from which it can be concluded that the contract covers so far equipping the NSM PCS with only one LCS ship - apparently, for testing the integration of the complex into ships. Previously, in the budget request for Work should be completed by May 2020. However, the contract includes an option, the implementation of which will bring the total cost to 847.6 million dollars - that is, with the equipping of the NSM of all LCS ships.

    Thus, the NSM (Naval Strike Missile) anti-ship missile developed by the Norwegian Kongsberg group and offered by the Raytheon and Kongsberg consortium was selected for the "Over-the-Horizon Weapon Systems (OTH WS)" competition for equipping the "literal" LCS warships and actually adopted by the Navy USA. This is a great success for Kongsberg. In addition to LCS ships, the missile chosen for the OTH WS program should also be used to equip the prospective American frigates FFG (X), and, possibly, other US Navy surface ships.
