Hello; I wonder if the amphibious craft are as well protected, as their larger aircraft carriers? Usually, though you may never see them, subs are always lurking near a carrier, as part of a protection screen. And then the rest of a carrier task force, an assortment of surface vessels, which are part of the protection screen for the carrier, but they also have their own capabilities. Apart from the military might USA must also focus on restoring manufacturing and skilled craftsmanship in America to maintain it’s economic edge. That’s because the Marines run these Vessels Amphibious. They need to be able to get boots on the Ground. No better way to get there. God Bless America ???????? and the Rule of Law. Kudos to all Service folks defending our Liberties and Freedom from Foreign and Domestic entities all day long.
