Because of the budget realities of purchasing TLAMs to arm the Arsenal Ship or that the Arsenal Ship would result in operational changes in the United States Navy? It is incorrect to think of the Arsenal Ship as a platform that could provide additional firepower? Was the Arsenal Ship intended for more than the land attack role?blackstar said:I also suspect that the rest of the surface ship navy would have raised objections as well, because the Arsenal Ship would have threatened to steal Tomahawks away from all the other surface ships. So while it came from an advocate of the surface navy, it would have posed a threat to the surface navy as well.
