I agree since that torpedo may be fired by the Iran Revolutionary Guard in the Strait of Hormuz.
You may not be all that concerned about it now, but I guarantee that you will when that first Iranian nuke goes off near your neighborhood, showering you with 10 Gy of gamma rays from the radioactive fallout.
Be sure to thank Obama for helping to finance your slow grisly death from radiation poisoning.
It's called research and development.
our military was drastically under funded/cut down 6 Dec 1941
the carriers have anti-sub aircraft
they have DDs that provide defense for the carriers
US subs can be used to hunt enemy subs
Arleigh Burke-Class (Aegis) Destroyer, US Navy, Northrop Grumman
...SFGATE--San Fran where they give illegals $190,00 for being illegal/love illegals/fruitcakes/deviants
...let people go into restaurants/in public nude
...bought a BRIDGE from China
SFGATE = anti-America
You kind of need a submarine to go around that torpedo, which costs a bit more.
Well with a carrier today, most of it's defense is passive or outside the ship. There's the group which always comes with a carrier. That allows carriers to not have to carry active sonar and hiding it better, as well as those ships being stationed and searching 20+ miles out for any sign of subs.
Then the sheer size helps out a carrier. Instead of thicker steel, carriers have a setup of voids alternately filled and empty at and below the waterline that act like a crumple zone in a car.
The biggest worry is when transiting tight waterways. Straight of Hormuz, straight of Malacca.. Those area's where the waterways are full of ships and their noise and where the direction of the carrier is known and limited.
The Cole was not "almost sunk". Where did you get such a silly idea? They were sitting in port, next to a pier!
