Re: LCS Gabrielle Giffords kit
Felix, I think you missed this one. This exchange was too political and should be pulled.
Is this a real posting? The Navy is naming a ship after Gabrielle Giffords? She was shot (with others) by a nut case, but how does that qualify her for a ship naming? How about naming a ship USS Steve Scalise? Also shot by a nut case!
Surely, this must be a joke . . . (And don't call me Shirley!)
Who would approve of such a ship-naming . . . only the Left-wing (Democratic) partisan ship-naming committee?
Cyberhobby /Dragon is coming out with a new 1/700 scale Independence class LCS kit of the USS Gabrielle Giffords LCS-10 that shows a modification to the design .
Instead of a deck mounted vertical launch system
in front of the bridge it has 2 boxes mounted on stands. Called Sea Strategic missiles system.
So is this an updated version of the old Armored
Box Launcher system of the 1980's for cruise missiles?
