The name Enterprise hasn't been in constant commission for the US, has it?  Quick check, nope not even the longest gap without one.

A navalised Enterprise  ^-^

Incoming fire has the right of way.

The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire.

Always remember that your weapon was built by the lowest bidder.

I think the thing that always gets me about the Charles de Gaulle is how short it is forward of the island. The only other carriers that look sort of like that are some of the late/post-war British designs that were retrofitted with angled flight decks

I think that's why she's got that giant arrow painted on the deck. It's so that allied American pilots don't get confused and try to land the wrong way.  ;)

Seeing as we're showing our support for the Colonials...



The Spanish-American War!  A conflict that really showed the Americans the importance of having a powerful surface fleet having let their navy slide until even Brasil was challenging it in terms of numbers in the late 1800's.

Some ships during the 1898 era

USS Helena - She is her sister ships sunk six Spanish ships during the conflict. She was a gunboat noted for her rapid-fire guns.



USS Constitution during the Spanish-American War....well she doing better now unlike almost all the ships from the era.

The families want ARA San Juan raised, and the government is saying it's possible but expensive.  Apparently the thing's intact, but imploded, which raises a lot of questions to me about structural stability and just what kind of definitions of 'intact' they're using.  I'll be surprised if they do bring her up, honestly, with the implication of the hull condition and the spread debris field.



Is the command compartment really that far back?  I'd expect it to be closer to the sail for surface operations, like on a 688.  I'm guessing the areas forward and a deck up of the crew area on SJ is sonar and torpedo rooms, more classified stuff.

Looks more like the engineering control compartment, with the operations control room directly under the sail with the periscope and other sensor masts penetrating down into it.
