Congress is trotting out a report written
by the Hudson Institute stating the US Navy really needs the Ford class, but the airwing is totally horked. The report says the Navy needs the
FA-XX asap and two UCLASS drones, one ISR and the other a deep penetrating strike platform.
I wrote a while back on my blog
that I thought
UCLASS needed to be fractured into several platforms. The carrier-borne Global Hawk is really a nonstarter upon reflection, but I stand by the HEL
Avenger for fleet defense, an ISR/light strike UCAV and deep strike UCLASS. For the drones, I'd think you'd need to add the
robot parking structures
on the hangar deck.
Just some crazy thoughts.
(and, yeah, I followed back a whole bunch of hits to my blog to here about the LRS-B).
