Yay! The Clue Bat Can Work!

Sanity prevails in the Navy!

The U.S. Navy is transforming its Zumwalt-class land-attack destroyers into surface-warfare ships whose main mission will be sinking other vessels at sea. In swapping the job of the three-ship class, the Navy is admitting that its original concept for the 600-foot, stealthy warships is no longer viable.

Good grief, the concept was never viable and it was an insult (or worse, folly) to pretend land attack was the ship's mission.

Of course, the ship is too stealthy to risk sailing with other ships and being detected because of them; yet too weakly armed and equipped to defend itself sailing alone if detected.

Well, the clue bat has more work to do, it seems.
