The Old School Way to Sink a U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier

Of course, just like the carrier-based ATTDS, the CRAW anti-torpedo torpedo would also require testing to see if they work as well in practice as they do in theory. Nonetheless, the concept of adding an additional close-range layer of protection to submarines has merit given the increasing capability of modern torpedoes, and the sobering reality that a submarine would be lucky to survive even a single torpedo hit.In 2019, an annual report released by the Department of Testing & Evaluation reveal...

Here's What Happens After Russia or China Sink a U.S. Navy Aircraft Carrier
