Spring 2013 Undersea Warfare Magazine Out
The long-awaited Spring 2013 issue of Undersea Warfare magazine is posted. Several good articles on the submarine forces of our Pacific allies.
Update 1555 19 July: Also in the news today, RADM Breckenridge defends SSBN force level requirements, and Reuters has a story about what my old boat USS Jimmy Carter (SSN 23) may or may not be doing in the wake of recent interest in the NSA.
Update 0940 20 July: Some boats are experimenting with 8 hour watches. What do you think of the idea? Personally, back in my coffee-drinking days, I only had a 6 hour bladder, so I would have definitely needed a short relief to get through 8 hours.
