Of Ships and Politics
« on: November 19, 2017, 13:44:56 »
This video on the development of the Frigate addresses a bunch of topics of current interest:

What the Americans lost when they declared independence.
The value of a navy.
The value of a forward presence.
The problems of North Africa.
The value of appropriately designed ships (neither too big nor too small)

Heavy emphasis on the Jonathans - but I suppose that is to be expected.  ;)
