    Kind of a smart move, she avoids going to the US and perhaps staying as a guest or being "interviewed". Flies home a hero and then the CCP will claim she was blackmailed into paying the fine and was never really guilty.

    If we were really smart by the time we are finishing the last CSC, we should have the design to start building a replacement for the first batch. My guess is we won't be that smart.

    Replacing the Subs

    Of course the subs might be going after the AOR's steaming to join the task force, who has been busy burning up fuel. I guess how long can a task force operate independently before it needs more fuel? Assuming a CV(or similar), couple of AD Destroyers, 4-5 Frigates and a AOR.

    Arctic/Offshore Patrol Ship AOPS

    All in all a impressive shakedown cruise and less problems than some people thought. I am really happy for the crew, hopefully they get to see some big marine mammals between Dutch Harbour and Esquimalt. Not to mention possible Chinese warships which might still be in the area.
