I Wonder (Again) Why Don't We Have Hydrofoils in the U.S. Navy?

Littoral combat, narrow seas combat or coastal operations, anything but deep blue water ops, I think we made a serious mistake not keeping and developing these small, high speed ships and their operations in squadrons and flotillas.

In fact, I assert we need them now. Right now.

    Having some available to help in the Strait of Hormuz would certainly be handy right now.

  2. Even a few of the old Asheville class PG's, they were pretty fast too. And with their old 3" 50 better gunned than todays LCS's.
