Except for those with the necessary security clearances, we ordinary citizens properly do not keep up with the new military hardware being developed.  Here is some of that hardware being made public. Nothing stays still for long, nowadays.
 Thank you to Rudy Sloup for finding this. He was a “Coastie” (USCG) while I did a time in the Army (US), and am proud of a grandson who did a number of tours with the USMC

This video linkis fresh (for the public).  It was made just six weeks ago in the Atlantic, just off Newport News ( Hampton Roads), Virginia .

Theseare the latest sea trials of the F-35B on the USS Wasp. They were  very successful, with 74 VL’s and STO’s in a three week period.
The media and the program critics had predicted that we would burn holes in the deck and wash sailors overboard.
Neither of which happened. You will notice a sailor standing on the bow of the ship as the jet rotates.
That was an intentional part of the sea trials.

Nocatapult…    No hook….    It’s a new world out there!

The shape and scope of warfare – worldwide – just changed.
