The US Navy’s challenging future: balancing kinetic, electronic and cyber capabilitiesApril 30, 2013
Terrific article from AOL Defense on the future of the US Navy. The Navy needs to replace aging platforms and add new capabilities at the same time, a challenging tandem in the best of time and even more so in the current financial reality. But it has to be done. Personally, I would beggar the Army and even (to a lesser degree) the Air Force if that is what was needed to enhance the Navy’s capability and reach. In a globalized world, the nation with the most effective and far reaching navy will dominate. Today, that is still the US (and our lead is large), but the game is changing and it is an open question whether we are keeping pace with that change.
