About this product
- DescriptionThe most complete resource of its kind, complete with up-to-date photographs, line drawings and useful appendixes Continuing the longstanding tradition as the most complete naval resource of its kind, this updated 19th edition of The Naval Institute Guide to the Ships and Aircraft of the U.S. meets the high expectations and exacting standards of those who rely on this volume to stay informed and to make related policy, force level, techlogical and weapons decisions. Packed with comprehensive information, up-to-date photographs, line drawings, and useful appendixes, this timely new guide describes the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard during an intensive period of transformation while engaged in combat operations as the Muslim world undergoes dramatic changes. In describing ships and aircraft, extensive coverage is given to the new littoral combat ships, joint high-speed vessels, GERALD R. FORD-class aircraft carriers, and other new ships as well as developments in shipboard ballistic missile defense. At the same time, the convoluted path in surface combatant construction is deciphered while the belated decision to cancel the Marine expeditionary fighting vehicle is explained. Also addressed in detail is the new F-35 series joint strike fighter and other aviation programs. Similarly addressed are Navy personnel, Marine Corps issues, Coast Guard forces, marine mammals, unmanned underwater and aerial vehicles, and other aspects of U.S. naval forces.
