The return of the light carrier

Looks like the Marines while exercising in the Philippines have loaded up the USS Wasp (LHD-1)with an unusually large contingent of F-35Bs.  This isn’t really surprising.  I suspect that the USN will test out multiple configurations on the LHA/LHD and even LPDs.  Where a US presence is required with an air presence, but not enough to warrant a CVN, these “light carriers” with F-35Bs will be a real force multiplier.  When the Loyal Wingman drones come online down the road, there will be even more of a force multiplier effect.

The Philippines is upgrading their navy, and for a $100.

The Chinese maverick is at it again.

Interesting to see that the Philippine Navy is still using old WWII era US ships.
