It was the forward EHF antenna that gave it away.
Our PERRY's are mostly gone geldings on their last legs - our last SPRUANCE was decommissioned in 2005.
I think we have a nice representation here about where we are with our Fleet. The disconnect between what is actually there, and what kind of face we put on it, is a chasm. It is somewhere between the Fleet we used to have, the one we wish we had, the one we actually have, and the Fleet we will one day have. The picture is of a balanced fleet. What we have is a Aegis and Corvette Battle Fleet - about as unbalanced as you can get.
Ponder ..... and will someone at CFFC please pass on to ADM Harvey that you have fixed the picture issue before this post is emailed to him. He deserves that.
Just don't replace it with a LCS picture or I will have to let Sid and Byron do a guest post on it.
UPDATE: ...and now you know the rest of the story.
CDR S, I commanded DD 971, CG 71 and was in the commissioning crew of FFG 8. This was a picture that represented the ships that meant (and still mean) a great deal to me.In that case; great pic! Boy, I come out looking like a jerk; sorry about that Admiral.
