The USN is mounting and deploying anti-drone lasers on-board DDGs.  Personally I think that in the next ten years the big weapons developments will be in lasers, not hypersonics.

After the series of USN procurement screw-ups, I am not confident about anything they do, but this seems like good news.  Lets hope they don’t boondoggle it.

Looks like the USS Ford (CVN-78) has now been cleared for operating all current USN aircraft types.  This gets it one step closer to completely operational. As things get more dangerous in the world it would be nice to have this weapon in the toolkit.

The USN is getting rid of the first 4 LCS ships.  It is a start.  What a freaking money pit.
