@FlyOpineMonkey Yes. Currently US Navy actually has more admirals than ships.

@FlyOpineMonkey Oh it’ll take a couple generations to get there. You need admirals who learned their craft (sorry) in a blue-water navy.

@scott_thewspot @Gin_ev_ra So, you know we can only buy what exists now, not imaginary things?

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

There’s a chance, a slight chance, that the Royal Australian Navy knows a tiny bit more about submarine warfare than you or me.

via TweetDeck

@scott_thewspot In the context for reporting what they see to a human, so a human can make a decision. These are weeks-long missions.

via TweetDeck

@Gin_ev_ra @scott_thewspot I believe that’s called a “missile”.

via TweetDeck

Subs are not like WWII movies. They’re surveillance and intelligence platforms, and special forces delivery platforms.

via TweetDeck

On subs vs drones, folks suggesting autonomous drones pre-programmed to kill? That’s called a “torpedo”. Sinking ships is not all subs do.

via TweetDeck

@Gin_ev_ra @scott_thewspot What you’re thinking of is called a “torpedo”, and they already exist.

via TweetDeck in reply to Gin_ev_ra

@scott_thewspot I said send, not receive. Receiving signals is passive. And there’s a human crew to interpret broad goals in context.
