Stealth Logistic Support Vessel Project
By US Navy standards this is a small ship...but I wonder. Are we building over sized vessels? I've said it before and I'll say it again. If you're going to do "Dis-aggregated MEU's" then we should be building many Mistral BPC's instead of large deck amphibs and LPDs. In other words we should have many 18,000 ton LHDs instead of a few 40,000 ton L class aircraft carriers.
Procurement isn't matching planning.
