USS New Jersey 09.JPG

I’ve spent a bit of time at sea on small warships, frigates and the like, and been on board baby carriers like Ark Royal and Jeanne d’Arc…

…I visited the New Jersey on a liaison visit to Philadelphia in 2011…the sheer size of everything just blew me away. Ive driven past the Wisconsin at Norfolk a few times but that’s not the same as standing under these massive barrels…knowing that each turret weighs more than each of our old (pre-ANZAC) frigates…

…easy to feel small…

This class of ship represents a pinnacle in naval design that we may never see again…sheer brute force in offensive and defensive capability…built to dish it out and take it too…
