As an EW specialist I can put that to challenge. But props for nice phrase.

One thing I heard is that the requirement for the AGS was written as a 155mm bore because someone wanted ammo commonality with Army howitzers, but that obviously never happened. I think they could have got an even better gun system with an 8" tube instead. An 8" AGS would be able to lob huge 8" LRLAP projectile-missiles to the same range as the 155mm AGS, or fire ~155mm sub-caliber rounds well past 100nm. Of course, a 600 foot, 15,000 ton "destroyer" was hard enough to get through congress; trying to keep the DDG designation on an 8" gun warship would have been even harder.

Looks like a submarine invited a destroyer for some hot coffee.

You actually forgot that Tom Clancy was a greatest patriot ever, thus Nimitz in Red Storm Rising didn't sink (only irrelevant ships like French carrier and USMC transport ship Saipan did) and took revenge on them godless commies later.

You did kill a Nimitz in Sum of all fears did you not?

I don't think so.
Also, Tom Clancy didn't approve a movie Sum of All Fears, which is quite noticeable on DVD commentaries.
Which means everything in that movie is anti-American and could not be counted in any way.

I was wondering something. Does Russia is developing new battleships? Current Russian Navy fleet as old( Some ships have good firepower, but old. Like Project 1164 and Project 1144). US Navy have a modern ships( Like Ticonderoga and Arleigh Burke) and developing a more modern ships.(Gerald R. Ford, Zumwalt and Independence) What Russia is doing against it?

They were trying to buy two helicopter carriers from France recently, but sale was cancelled after Crimea.

Still tiny compared to US Wasp or America class.
