Abstract:

The Arsenal Ship was the most innovative naval weapons concept of the late 20th Century: a stealthy vessel armed with 500 Vertical Launch System (VLS) tubes and manned by a crew of only 25 or 30 sailors, intended to rain precision-guided missiles on enemies from a safe distance; a 'force multiplyer' that was seen as an integral part of the Revolution in Military Affairs. The arsenal ship fascinated military thinkers in the mid-90s, although there was spirited debate over the wisdom of putting so many eggs in one lightly defended basket. Would it have worked? Read the detailed contemporary analysis and judge for yourself. An essential reference for any library on modern navies. (Back of book)
