The US Navy offers 3 options for the future of its naval force

For many years, US Navy shipbuilding planning has been chaotic to say the least, with successive plans and objectives diverging, sometimes even contradicting. The subject is also the subject of fierce opposition between Republican senators and representatives, supporters of a massive fleet, and their Democratic counterparts who wish to keep the defense budget under control.

Chinese Armies Experiment With Weapons Designed To Destroy Ports

In order to counter the rise of the Chinese armies, the Pentagon has decided to rely on smaller, more mobile and better interconnected units via the now well-known Joint All-Domain Command and Control doctrine, or JADC2.
