  1. why in the fuck would you have a ship that the ammunition cost more than the goddamn ship? y'all make me want to say a whole lot of shit and I ain't going to say it

  2. Im sure the guns have ammunition just not as much as they would like because of cost lol I doubt they gonna have a warship with no ammo unless they changed out the guns for old ones

  3. This is a testimony to the navy’s incestuous relationship with the military industrialized complex. I bet the food chain on this were all retired Admirals that received healthy bonuses.

  4. Another colossal failure on the part the U.S. Navy just like the littoral class ship with problems with propulsion issues, but I guess they have enough money for those woke classes. Maybe, these admirals need to pull their heads out of their asses and figure what the true cost of building a ship before they waste our taxes money and cost over runs and feasibly of a weapon system before they bring it on line.

  5. I got to see its radar cross section in real life and it was like a small fishing boat BUT the only reason it showed up at all was because it had some reflectors up to prevent collisions

  6. Leave it to the Navy to screw up acquisitions. "We estimate ammo will be $35,000 per round." Actual cost: $1,000,000 a round. That's off by a factor of 28! Not 1.3. Not 1.7. 28 TIMES the estimate. And I bet you not one single man was demoted, let alone thrown out of the service. In fact, I'll bet every single person involved and responsible was promoted on schedule.
