Welcome back to the our channel for a discussion about some of the United States most advanced patrol and combat vessels. What ever happened to those patrol hydrofoils the Navy used to have? I can remember them coming down from Key West to do operations off the coast of Puerto Rico, when I was stationed in Roosevelt Roads, PR. Watching them change the barrels on the M2s I can't help but think they're gonna lose a lot of barrels of time. Maybe they should turn the gun so it is parallel (or nearly parallel) with the boat's side so the barrel is able to be easily handled with two hands - I assume they have barrel change mitts available. Turning the gun parallel with teh side of the boat would also mean that if the barrel fell there might be a better chance it landed on the deck instead of straight into the drink. Some of those boats should replace the area to transport special forces with tubes to launch Spike or Hellfire missiles. Then they could neutralize threats up to 5 miles away.
