    CVN-78 should be the "Enterprise class". Period.
    Fully agreed, there should always be an Enterprise in good old (and afterall, pro-capital) America.

    Jimmy Carter being named after a submarine is a perfect fit even if he liked carriers: he also helped with the development of nuclear submarines.

    Disclaimer: By America, I meant the Continent. And yes, I know Asian homes have neither a backyard nor a porch in the American sense.

    Luuuuuuuuuuurve the chrome effect! Best motto I've seen in a long time too! Definitely un-PC! Just as a warship should be.

    Obi Wan, This is where the phase "Don't mess with Texas" comes from.

    "The phrase Donít Mess with Texas is a slogan for the Texas Department of Transportation, and was developed to reduce littering on Texas roadways used as part of a statewide advertising campaign in 1986. The phrase was prominently shown on road signs on major highways, as well as in television, radio and print advertisements. Owing to the great popularity of the campaign, the slogan has been appropriated by the citizens of Texas for general use. Though it appears on countless items of tourist paraphernalia, the phrase is actually a federally registered trademark; the agency has tried at times to enforce its trademark rights, but has not yet been successful.

    Twenty years after its introduction, the success and popularity of Donít Mess with Texas has earned it a spot among the best advertising slogans ever. Donít Mess with Texas has been nominated for a plaque on the Madison Avenue Walk of Fame. This is the third year for the contest, and only two slogans per year are honored.

    Donít Mess with Texas is also the official motto of the recently commissioned Virginia-class submarine USS Texas".

    Simple but effective!

    Here's a link to the ship's comissioning page.

    The Tomcat ain't dead yet. It has made recent appearences at the NAS Oceana airshow and on board CVN-71 in July...The last Tomcats are scheduled to be retired by 1 October 2006. But maybe they may stick around a little longer.

    The F-14 Tomcat will finally be retired by the USN in about two weeks. The last remaining F-14 squadron is VF-31 from NAS Oceana VA.

    Great videos on the Tomcat.

    USN LCS in 'da house!! The USN plans about 50 LCS ships

    Marinette, Wis. (Sept. 23, 2006) Ė The nationís first Littoral Combat Ship, Freedom (LCS 1) Ė the inaugural ship in an entirely new class of U.S. Navy surface warships Ė makes a spectacular side launch during her christening at the Marinette Marine shipyard. The agile 377-foot Freedom -- designed and built by a team led by Lockheed Martin -- will help the U.S. Navy defeat growing littoral, or close-to-shore, threats and provide access and dominance in coastal water battle-space. Displacing 3,000 metric tons and with a capability of reaching speeds well over 40 knots, Freedom will be a fast, maneuverable and networked surface combatant with operational flexibility to execute focused missions, such as mine warfare, anti-submarine warfare, surface warfare and humanitarian relief. Photo released courtesy Lockheed Martin.
