Maelstrom Vortex Posted July 20, 2010 Report Share Posted July 20, 2010 (edited) Under a very large naval expansion program started in the first year of Caudill's term the U.S. has completed its first "Boxed fleet" in New Jersey shipyards. It's a fleet designed to be built on parallel construction schedules to set specifications and completed at nearly the same time. The last ship to be completed finished today and the fleet was revealed to the U.S. navy as a group. The flagship was of course the CVN USS George Washington. The total fleet composition slated below is now docked and refueling in Norfolk Harbor, taking on crews which had been training for deployment to these vessels at the US Naval Academy. The deployment of this fleet is another milestone on the United States of America's return to Super Power status. 9 Corvettes 9 Landing Ship 8 Battleship 7 Cruiser 7 Frigate 7 Destroyer 6 Submarine 6 Aircraft Carrier The exact specs and build specifications have not been disclosed as a matter of National Security as these vessels are wielding state of the art technology.
