Recommended Posts

A crippled American warship suffered further damage during preparations for its trip to the U.S. for repairs.

The Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald was forced to return to Fleet Activities Yokosuka Monday to repair two punctures in the hull, which occurred while loading the vessel onto a heavy lift ship for transport to Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) in Pascagoula, Miss., for maintenance, the Navy revealed in a statement. The Navy expects the repairs to delay the warship’s departure by several days.

You can't make it up... So many damage events.... Even during repair!

Makes me wonder if it’s not being held in place for “other reasons” under these auspices.

A possibility but... Too much weakness being portrayed... but then maybe that's the point....
