Talk about being short-sighted! At an average of $13 billion a pop, the U.S. naval planning brigade has stepped in it big-time! Modern-day aircraft carriers, critics say, don’t have the long-range poop for the pop!
A far cry it is from my own navigational-transponder experiences during the Vietnam era. The SPN-38, i.e., from my recollections, only worked “at sea” when we had a factory representative aboard who could stay on top of the damn thing! But in a crisis, our “long-term planning” was up to snuff!
