It’s amazing just how large the 13.3-inch Onyx Boox Max appears. At the end of the video the N96 with frontlight is shown.It’s one of the first 9.7-inch E Ink ereaders to get a frontlight and it actually looks decent.To do that, the Navy thinks its going to need a lot of extra power for more energy-intensive weapons in the future, such as electromagnetic rail guns and laser weapons.“You need something that can host the [size, weight, power and cooling], so it’s probably going to be a little bigger," Boxall said. But we have to be adaptable." The influential head of a House sea power subcommittee is calling on the Navy to enter its oldest 11 cruisers into a service-life extension program rather than retire them at the end of their 35-year hull life.Boxall pointed to altering the Spruance-class destroyers into the Ticonderoga-class cruisers as an example of what the Navy is trying to accomplish, but added that the new ship would likely borrow elements from both the current DDGs and the Zumwalt-class destroyers now entering the fleet.
These were the missions our country demanded and its strategy dictated.
The littoral combat ship USS Freedom (LCS 1) arrives at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Dec. Freedom’s first operational deployment, a 9-month assignment forward-operating from Singapore, is the first ever deployment for a littoral combat ship and the proof-of-concept deployment for the ship class. No other nation on Earth challenged our ability to control the seas or project power from the sea.
Over the past two decades, we focused our efforts on honing our ability to project power, and we became exceptionally good at strike.
The next large surface combatant will have the Flight III requirements as a baseline with room to grow into later, he said.
That approach, using an existing set of requirements and adapting them for use in later hulls, has served the Navy well in the past. The surface Navy is going to be in the center of this role and to succeed we need to refocus on our core warfighting competencies: anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, and integrated air and missile defense.

Since the abatement of the Soviet threat, we have as a Navy turned our attention to power projection.
