We never had a issue escorting Kuwaiti Flagged tankers out of the gulf the rest of the time he was in office. That was the last time they fired a silk worm missile at one of USS Midways (CV-41) escorts in our battle group. It was awesome serving under a real CiC!!!

    Got a Presidential Unit Citation for that little expidition out of the deal and all the ordnance we sent to the flight deck...worked as advertised!
    Forgot about that. I stand corrected. However, Reagen usually put and end to international aggression by hitting hard so there was no mistaking what would happen if they decided to escalate.

    USS New Jersey (BB-16) was the fourth of five Virginia-class battleships of the United States Navy, and the first ship to carry her name. She was laid down at the Fore River Shipbuilding Company in Quincy, Massachusetts in May 1902, launched in November 1904, and commissioned into the fleet in May 1906. The ship was armed with an offensive battery of four 12-inch (305 mm) guns and eight 8-inch (203 mm) guns, and she was capable of a top speed of 19 knots (35 km/h; 22 mph).

    New Jersey spent her entire career in the Atlantic Fleet. In late 1906, she took part in the Second Occupation of Cuba, and she participated in the Jamestown Exposition in April – May 1907. At the end of the year, she joined the Great White Fleet for its circumnavigation of the globe, which lasted into 1909. The ship spent the following five years conducting peacetime training. In April 1914, New Jersey took part in the occupied Veracruz during the Mexican Revolution. During World War I, she was used as a training ship, and after the war, she was tasked with transporting American soldiers back from Europe. New Jersey was decommissioned in 1920 and slated for destruction in bombing tests in 1923. Martin NBS-1 bombers sank the ship on 5 September 1923 in a series of bomb attacks.

    Design[edit]
    Main article: Virginia-class battleship
    New Jersey was 441 feet 3 inches (134.49 m) long overall and had a beam of 76 ft 3 in (23.24 m) and a draft of 23 ft 9 in (7.24 m). She displaced 14,948 long tons (15,188 t) as designed and up to 16,094 long tons (16,352 t) at full load. The ship was powered by two-shaft triple-expansion steam engines rated at 19,000 indicated horsepower (14,000 kW) and twelve coal-fired Babcock & Wilcox boilers, generating a top speed of 19 knots (35 km/h; 22 mph). As built, she was fitted with heavy military masts, but these were quickly replaced by cage masts in 1909. She had a crew of 812 officers and enlisted men.[1]

    The ship was armed with a main battery of four 12-inch/40 caliber Mark 4[a] guns in two twin gun turrets on the centerline, one forward and aft. The secondary battery consisted of eight 8-inch/45 caliber guns and twelve 6-inch (152 mm)/50 caliber guns. The 8-inch guns were mounted in four twin turrets; two of these were superposed atop the main battery turrets, with the other two turrets abreast the forward funnel. The 6-inch guns were placed in casemates in the hull. For close-range defense against torpedo boats, she carried twelve 3-inch (76 mm)/50 caliber guns mounted in casemates along the side of the hull and twelve 3-pounder guns. She also carried two 1-pounder guns. As was standard for capital ships of the period, New Jersey carried four 21 in (530 mm) torpedo tubes, submerged in her hull on the broadside.[1]

    New Jersey's main armored belt was 11 in (279 mm) thick over the magazines and the machinery spaces and 6 in (152 mm) elsewhere. The main battery gun turrets (and the secondary turrets on top of them) had 12-inch (300 mm) thick faces, and the supporting barbettes had the 10 in (250 mm) of armor plating. The conning tower had 9 in (230 mm) thick sides.[1]

    I dude I cant remember half the stuff I need to remember much less remember everything. Besides I doubt that little skrimish made it on CNN news anyways as if you werent in the military in that theater you probably wouldnt have even herd about it happening.

    You right though about Uncle Ronnie and Aunt Margeret...when they drew a line in the sand BY GOD THEY MEANT IT in no uncertian terms, unlike the current idiot in chief. Here is to hoping there are better days ahead for America and gloomy days ahead for our enemies in the world!

    Time to repeat the Reagan operation, clear the sea lanes of muzslime bastard jihadist.

    Convert all iranian ships into underwater craft, and remove the ability of all their subs to surface.








    Lunatic, glad to see you got a PUC!

    Thanks Bro' but its just another Bozo Button to put on my uniform, lol. Being on the Midway for 8 years made my uniform expensive to maintain really quick. I swear we were the first to deploy everytime some one sneezed in that part of the world. We used to joke about us being the "expendable carrier". Going through the Straights of Hormuz and watching those missile batteries track us through 16x Bino's was really kinda creepy feeling....

    Trump wont be perfect and I wont agree with him on a whole lot I am sure but I hope he gets the finances back in order here, builds our military back up to the way its supposed to be and has America "speaking softly and carrying a even bigger stick"!
