Default Must be getting old?

Must be getting old? "Batwings"? Can't remember what that means! I know I haven't heard that one used for at least 10 years

Admiral Hyman J. Rickover, America's Napolean.... (I think it was a J?)

I met him once, long story there...

Haven't the Mk50's been released yet? And yeah I know ASROC's went away awhile ago. But Mk46's dropped from a SH-2F or the like are kinda useless...

Default Take it easy old salts!

No need to beat each other up, we all did our duty in our own way. I helped the skimmers and bird farmers by pulling patrol duty when Nixon was on Long Island Sound for the '76 celebrations and the skimmers and bird farmers once helped pull the Russians off an bubble heads back on a Med patrol.

Default Shade, not as deep as the Pac.

The Med is nowhere as deep as the Pac and has that miserable choke point at Gibralter, but it is more heavily thermoclined which makes for hiding your acoustic signature better than the Atlanic or Pacific.
