I’ve followed Jim Dunnigan’s career since he was a wargame designer in the 70s.  He now runs a website called Strategypage and below is a YouTube of his podcast.  This one is on problems with current ship designs, focusing in part on the LCS (Little Crappy Ships.)

The MQ-25A has flown with refueling equipment for the first time. The USN hope to eventually purchase 72 of these to replace the F/A-18s in the refueling role.
