it’s like cracking a rubik’s cube when you realize it’s ok to put two girls in a row
can somebody help me to identify the ship in pic #10? thanks
LCS 1 USS Freedom
LCS = Fail
my bad, I meant to put USS McInerney (FFG 8) there (which conducted a joint mission with the USS Freedom)
Yep, USS MCINERNEY (FFG 8). I served aboard her from 2000-2002. Good times. She's now in the Pakistani Navy.
Also doesn't appear to be a guided missile ship any longer. Looks like the MK13 was removed…
sh*t guys, again my bad, hopefully the other pics gave ya a smile…what can I say, I f-up…that being said, thanks for coming to the site and calling out my errors. With out you guys, there would not be legitimacy to the site.
She was still designated as an FFG, even after they removed all her missiles. (But really, it's not like they actually took away any real capability when they pulled the launcher … we couldn't get a bird off to save our damn lives anyway. Damn launcher and FCS were down more than they were up.)
If it has missiles, it has likely been converted to a VLS.
As far as I know, no FFG has had a VLS installed…
no… FFGs did not get VLS when they took the launcher.
Looks like we were shipmates, then. I was there from 2001-2003.
You heard about how the Pakis cracked up her bow?
Very pretty girls. Speaking of, I've solved a rubix cube. Sadly my record is 73 seconds. Bah!
This shoulda been called the "USS HOPPER (DDG 70)" post of the day!
#21 JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL
all those curves and me with no brakes
#16 MK26 FTW! A complicated but amazing system!
beyond the $ tag, personally, I'm proud to know we employ the best minds to avoid unnecessary casualties…just saying, we give it our all to try and get it right. (sorry for posting on my site but this is how I look at our military's tough decisions)
I've got a guided missile for those to ladies. *wink*wink*nudge*nudge*
Did I do it right?
My brother recommended I may like this website. He used to be entirely right. This publish actually made my day. You can not imagine simply how a lot time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
