Working on a USNS transport here are some Photos dye pen testing the hub after a reinstall. You can imagine how massive the Drydock is just by the photo's. This ship can hold an entire Striker infantry Battalions worth of vehicles inside of it. 

Also note the 20lb zinc's attached to the rudder. I'm guessing these are factored in to the in game repair economy LOL.

Used to help dampen some kind of rudder vibrations?

The zinc is for electrolysis, salt water creates a huge amount of static electricity that attacks metal. Instead it attacks the zinc's.

Don't think so...  I believe it reduces corrosion.  Ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galvanic_anode
