Create economic activity? For who? You going to give me a rebate on my taxes? Those morons actually think I believe what they're saying. Take one of your biggest drones and cram it up Oblama's rear end and, touch off the hellfire attached to it.
The rednecks in the American South are just itching to be the first redneck to take down any drone stupid enough to fly over a Southern state. Our swamps will be littered with drone parts...probably even the ones from Amazon with our stuff in them....
Yet another example of America shooting itself in the foot.
so no one checked first that the signals to the drone could be scrambled by the ships radar , sometimes things in plain sight like ships radar are just taken for granted !
Perhaps in the next sea born tests we might see the radars turned off !
I expect by now they have worked it out !
Well if i wanted an update for my ship i would crash a drone in it and claim the money off the drone makers !
That's what some would or might call a piece of good news.
That sure is an expensive Peace of Carbon covered Plywood. My God.
Well it's too bad that my fellow commrades were hurt but this must be better than killing innocent civilians.
It isn't a battleship, it's a missile cruiser.
A battleship wouldn't be crippled by a drone crashing into it.
Lets not be lazy with the truth pls
Calling it a battleship is anti-establishment propaganda.
we don't need to play that game
Two wings in the pink and three in the stink. Two for lift and three for guidance. A bargain at 1.5 million if you believe the price. ?
Hopefully the unmanned aerial vehicles won't crash into private residences when they're deployed on U.S. skies for around- the- clock surveillance of American citizens.
That is one way to become an admiral under the Bush cabal or Obummer administration.
No people, it is a WW-2 era battleship and that is a V-2 rocket.
Correct, those are Tomahawk cruise missiles
Yawn ... A Tomahawk has 4 tail fins, whereas these correctly identified drones clearly have 3. [quote name='Matthew GJ Miller' time='07.01.2014 21:15']a little fact-checking would be appreciated.
Ita Ticonderoga class cruiser. Furthermore, that "drone" is a Tomahawk cruise missile.
Correct, those are Tomahawk cruise missiles and the ship is a Ticonderoga-class cruiser.
Bu t what's not in question is that some American politicians in the US govt., will throw billions of dollars away on defense expenditures but today, in the US Senate, found it difficult to vote 'YES' for a 3-month federal extension of emergency unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed American workers.
Ki nd of makes you wonder who's side they're on, doesn't it?
It is NOT a battleship (there are no BBs active)...it is a Ticonderoga class cruiser. Furthermore, that "drone" is a Tomahawk cruise missile. Before lifting photos from other sources, a little fact-checking would be appreciated.
USS Chancellorsville (CG-62) is a Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser in service in the United States Navy. She is named for the Confederate victory over Union forces under Robert E. Lee at the Battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia.
