War Is Boring

USN needs a flying missile platform and there is none in the pipeline.

China with the anti-carrier DF-21D requires the carrier group to operate a greater standoff distance. The strike package going in and out will need air cover with lots of missiles (China has a huge air force)

At some point there a stealthy naval tanker will be required.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
