    Thanks to USNI for making this report available. It is going to take some time to digest but I’m certainly looking forward to a great read and to the comments of others more knowledgeable than I regarding their analysis of the report

    If your doing too increase the crew billeting of the vessel. Does that mean your going replace the Bofors 57mm/70-caliber (2.25-inch) “Swivel Wolf” for an BAE 127mm/54 or 65-caliber (5-inch) Lightweight Auto Deck Gun as well!
