Open Thread 156

It's time once again for our regular Open Thread. Talk about whatever you want, so long as it isn't Culture War.

The 2023 Naval Gazing meetup was last weekend, and a great time was had by all. Besides the planned events, we also had a special bonus tour, which confirms my theory that you should all come next time, because you never know what will happen.

Overhauls are SYWTBABB Construction Part 3, Shells Part 3, my review of Ft. Sill, Coastal Defenses Part 2, LCS Parts two and three, and for 2023, my review of Seawolf Park in Galveston and The East Asia Squadron Part 1.

    I have been out of the loop for a bit so I might have missed it if you all had gone into this in depth already, but any thoughts on the Fujian completing her first sea trials?

    My aging eyes can't tell if this video has been doctored or not.

    I wonder how long it will be before they can build an entire battle group around her?
