Three New Navy Ships

Posted By Newssleuth

USS REAGAN
Seeing it next to the Arizona Memorial really puts its size into perspective… ENORMOUS!

When the Bridge pipes ‘ Man the Rail’ there is a lot of rail to man on this monster: shoulder to shoulder, around 4.5 acres.  Her displacement is about 100,000 tons with full complement.  

Capability

Top speed exceeds 30 knots, powered by two nuclear reactors that can operate for more than 20 years without refueling

1. Expected to operate in the fleet for about 50 years

2. Carries over 80 combat aircraft

3. Three arresting cables can stop a 28-ton aircraft going 150 miles per hour in less than 400 feet

Size

1. Towers 20 stories above the waterline

2. 1092 feet long; nearly as long as the  Empire   State   Building  is tall

3.  Flight deck covers 4.5 acres

4.  4 bronze propellers, each 21 feet across, weighing 66,200  pounds

5.  2 rudders, each 29 by 22 feet and weighing 50 tons

6.  4 high speed aircraft elevators, each over 4,000 square feet

Capacity


1. Home to about 6,000 Navy personnel

2. Carries enough food and supplies to operate for 90 days

3.  18,150 meals served daily

4.  Distillation plants provide 400,000 gallons of fresh water from sea water daily, enough for 2,000 homes

5.  Nearly 30,000 light fixtures and 1,325 miles of cable and wiring 1,400 telephones

6.  14,000 pillowcases and 28,000 sheets


USS BILL CLINTON

The USS William Jefferson Clinton (CVS1) set sail today from its home port of Vancouver , BC

The ship is the first of its kind in the Navy and is a standing legacy to President Bill Clinton ‘for his foresight in military budget cuts’ and his conduct while holding the (formerly dignified) office of President.

The ship is constructed nearly entirely from recycled aluminum and is completely solar powered with a top speed of 5 knots. It boasts an arsenal comprised of one (unarmed) F14 Tomcat or one (unarmed) F18 Hornet aircraft which, although they cannot be launched on the 100 foot flight deck, form a very menacing presence.

As a standing order there are no firearms allowed on board.

This crew, like the crew aboard the USS Jimmy Carter, is specially trained to avoid conflicts and appease any and all enemies of the United States  at all costs.

An onboard Type One DNC Universal Translator can send out messages of apology in any language to anyone who may find America offensive.  The number of apologies are limitless and though some may seem hollow and disingenuous, the Navy advises all apologies will sound very sincere.

In times of conflict, the USS Clinton has orders to seek refuge in Canada.


USS  BARACK OBAMA

Details are vague.

But don’t you worry………………………

he has a plan

    That’s hysterical (and sad – the truth in jest adage)

  2. His mate was a mighty sailing man, the skipper brave and sure,
    They set sail that day, for a 3 hour tour…..
    A 3 hour tour…….

    Grab your Ben and Jerry’s and a spoon ! Gilligan is back !

  3. Beautiful ship the USS Reagan. The USS Clinton is funny, but the Obama’s banana boat is a riot!

    Let the namesake of the USS Barack Obama go down with his boat. Sink or swim comes to mind with the emphasis on sink. Yet, we know they won’t have enough lifeboats or lifevests on board to save the people.

  4. Given how much the Democrats have increased the deficit and National Debt, they probably intend for the USS Obama to look like this.
