    do you know if it's only 1 SAM per launcher?

    that is interesting, but it's consistent with taiwan's history with SAMs to be fair. so the weapons are 100% defensive then, but i'd still call an LPD like this with this level of armament a helicopter cruiser. especially since it seems they have room to put ASMs or more of those slanted SAM launchers up there.

    corvette vs missile boat

    yep, the roussen i think are the sort of vessels that kind of blur the line between missile boat and corvette lol fairly large, dedicated AAW system, DP gun, and ASMs. regardless of that though, i do like them. they'd be a good option for replacing the cyclones if the USN ever decided to actually replace them.

    also a story from 2019 that wasn't immediately released. on 4 separate nights 3 DDGs were shadowed by up to 6 drones for at least 30 minutes, and as far as we can tell via FOIA requests no one knows crapabout who operated them or where they came from. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1611065292284356/permalink/4016863201704541/?comment_id=4018564061534455&notif_id=1616584407196838&ref=notif&notif_t=group_comment_follow

    200k ton container ship lost power and steering in the suez canal and is now stuck, apparently aground blocking the entire canal at the south end. https://mobile.twitter.com/jsrailton/status/1374438210315513864?s=21&fbclid=IwAR3uQDQyBSj823ouMKK54kAKL1b6IBlKumLqUXsJ_b90zS3RFEDBhWyBM9M

    how do you make a modern ship out of a WWII DD?

    lacking the SM loadout i suggested. they do have some issues with that still.
