      laughing Well, in general, the United States is one of the most patriarchal countries, unlike, say, the very Europe (with the exception of Poland)

      Bottle on board.
      It's not that.
      The ship is not being built for budgetary funds. Penny Sue Pritzker became the sponsor of the construction. In the Forbes magazine ranking, she ranks 462nd among the richest people in the world. That is clearly not the highest. And at the same time builds at his own expense a ship for the US Navy, and so obviously not in distress.
      What is not an example to follow?

            Well, if we had the Top 10 richest "businessmen" of Russia invested in the defense industry, we could have built an aircraft carrier and a couple of hundred planes and a couple of thousand tanks to rivet. But, the biggest yacht will certainly be better.

        You got a little ahead of me, but oh well. The main point is emphasized on time and in the right place. Not the richest man in the Forbes magazine ranking ner forgets his armed forces, and our degenerate aligarchs only entertain themselves. Yachts, football clubs, far from domestic. It’s high time for Abramovich to sponsor the frigate, or to throw off a nuclear submarine. After that, respect will appear to them. Vekselberg for his craving for winged metal, let the Ka-52 squadron or other aircraft. Then you can forgive him the Ural Aluminum Plant. Weakly sponsor them squadron !? All the same, they stole it.

    Shock tests include a series of tests designed to demonstrate the ability of a vessel to withstand the effects of underwater explosions, close proximity and withholding the required power. USS Jackson has successfully completed the first of three tests, and is working as expected.

    Lord, every second in the commentary has the word "Satanists". You have paranoia, people, honestly. You would rather pay attention to the fact that the ship was built for private money, and not for state expense. Those. a case in point is the patriotic investment of the country's rich people in the power of their own state.
    Something tells me that the domestic highly spiritual non-Satanists Potanins, Usmanovs and other Vekselberg-Deripaska and the ruble will not invest in the defense industry. We’ll better take the biggest yacht in the world.
