A huge upgrade for the Navy was announced by President Trump. It was reported by Fox News that a 355 ship building plan has been enacted by President Trump for the Navy.
This is the largest ever since the Cold War.
he Navy’s Force Structure Assessment, revised after Trump’s demand, calls for building an aircraft carrier built in Virginia, 16 large surface warships in Maine and Mississippi, and 18 attack submarines in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Virginia.
It also requests multiple amphibious assault ships, expeditionary docks and support ships.
Matthew Paxton, president of the Shipbuilders Council of America, said,
“Russia and China are going to continue to build up their navies. The Navy, more than any of the services, is our forward presence. We’re going to need this Navy.”
