Your Weekly Dose of SWO for August 27th.
I always enjoy watching ships get launched. It such a violent event for such an expensive item. It seems to me that if we can figure out ways to make several hundred tons of metal float, we can figure out how to set it in the water in a way that doesn’t make everyone within 10 miles cringe. It’s still pretty awesome to watch though.
This particular launch is the (soon to be commissioned) USS FORT WORTH (LCS 3) which currently has a special place in my heart.
