Footage of the Phalanx CIWS Close-in Weapon System in various target practicing exercises. The Phalanx Close-In Weapons System (CIWS) was developed as the last line of automated weapons defense (terminal defense or point defense) against anti-ship missiles (AShMs), including high-g and maneuvering sea-skimmers. The basis of the system is the M61 Vulcan Gatling gun autocannon. Consisting of a radar-guided 20 mm (0.79 in) Gatling gun mounted on a swiveling base, the Phalanx has been used by Navies around the world. The CIWS is designed to be the last line of defense against anti-ship missiles. Due to its design criteria, its effective range is very short relative to the range of modern ASMs, from 1 to 5 nautical miles (9 km). The gun mount moves at a very high speed and with great precision. The system takes minimal inputs from the ship, making it capable of functioning despite potential damage to the ship.

A great promotional video of the US Navy SEALS. The United States Navy's Sea, Air, Land Teams, commonly known as the Navy SEALs, are the U.S. Navy's principal special operations force and a part of the Naval Special Warfare Command and United States Special Operations Command. The SEALs' duty is to conduct small-unit maritime military operations which originate from, and return to a river, ocean, swamp, delta, or coastline. SEALs can negotiate shallow water areas such as the Persian Gulf coastline, where large ships and submarines are limited due to depth. "SEAL" is always capitalized in reference to members of the Naval Special Warfare community. The Navy SEALs are trained to operate in all environments (Sea, Air, and Land) for which they are named. SEALs are also prepared to operate in a variety of climates, such as desert, arctic, and jungle. All SEALs are male members of the United States Navy. The CIA's highly secretive Special Activities Division (SAD) and more specifically its elite Special Operations Group (SOG) recruits operators from the SEAL Teams. Joint Navy SEALs and CIA operations go back to the MACV-SOG during the Vietnam War. This cooperation still exists today and is seen in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. History This section needs additional citations for verification. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. (November 2013) Origins The modern day U.S. Navy SEALs can trace their roots to World War II. The United States Navy recognized the need for the covert reconnaissance of landing beaches and coastal defenses. As a result, the Amphibious Scout and Raider School was established in 1942 at Fort Pierce, Florida. The Scouts and Raiders were formed in September of that year, just nine months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, from the Observer Group, a joint U.S. Army-Marine-Navy unit Scouts and Raiders Recognizing the need for a beach reconnaissance force, a select group of Army and Navy personnel assembled at Amphibious Training Base Little Creek, Virginia on August 15, 1942 to begin Amphibious Scouts and Raiders (joint) training. The Scouts and Raiders mission was to identify and reconnoiter the objective beach, maintain a position on the designated beach prior to a landing, and guide the assault waves to the landing beach. The first group included Phil H. Bucklew, the "Father of Naval Special Warfare," after whom the Naval Special Warfare Center building is named. Commissioned in October 1942, this group saw combat in November 1942 during Operation Torch on the North African coast. Scouts and Raiders also supported landings in Sicily, Salerno, Anzio, Normandy, and southern France. A second group of Scouts and Raiders, code-named Special Service Unit No. 1, was established on 7 July 1943, as a joint and combined operations force. The first mission, in September 1943, was at Finschafen on New Guinea. Later operations were at Gasmata, Arawe, Cape Gloucester, and the East and South coast of New Britain, all without any loss of personnel. Conflicts arose over operational matters, and all non-Navy personnel were reassigned. The unit, renamed 7th Amphibious Scouts, received a new mission, to go ashore with the assault boats, buoy channels, erect markers for the incoming craft, handle casualties, take offshore soundings, clear beach obstacles and maintain voice communications linking the troops ashore, incoming boats and nearby ships. The 7th Amphibious Scouts conducted operations in the Pacific for the duration of the conflict, participating in more than 40 landings. The third and final Scouts and Raiders organization operated in China. Scouts and Raiders were deployed to fight with the Sino-American Cooperative Organization, or SACO. To help bolster the work of SACO, Admiral Ernest J. King ordered that 120 officers and 900 men be trained for "Amphibious Raider" at the Scout and Raider school at Fort Pierce, Florida. They formed the core of what was envisioned as a "guerrilla amphibious organization of Americans and Chinese operating from coastal waters, lakes and rivers employing small steamboats and sampans." While most Amphibious Raider forces remained at Camp Knox in Calcutta, three of the groups saw active service. They conducted a survey of the upper Yangtze River in the spring of 1945 and, disguised as coolies, conducted a detailed three-month survey of the Chinese coast from Shanghai to Kitchioh Wan, near Hong Kong. Naval Combat Demolition Units In September 1942, 17 Navy salvage personnel arrived at ATB Little Creek, VA for a week long course in demolitions, explosive cable cutting and commando raiding techniques. On November 10, 1942, the first combat demolition unit successfully cut cable and net barriers across the Wadi Sebou River during Operation Torch in North Africa.

It's one of the largest indoor oceans in the world, making the MASK the most advanced test facility of its kind. So why does the Navy need an indoor ocean?

PEARL HARBOUR U.S NAVY BASE Pearl Harbor is a lagoon harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, west of Honolulu. Much of the harbor and surrounding lands is a United States Navy deep-water naval base. It is also the headquarters of the United States Pacific Fleet. The U.S. government first obtained exclusive use of the inlet and the right to maintain a repair and coaling station for ships here in 1887. Pearl Harbor was originally an extensive shallow embayment called Wai Momi (meaning, “Waters of Pearl”) or Puʻuloa (meaning, “long hill”) by the Hawaiians. Puʻuloa was regarded as the home of the shark goddess, Kaʻahupahau, and her brother (or son), Kahiʻuka, in Hawaiian legends. According to tradition, Keaunui, the head of the powerful Ewa chiefs, is credited with cutting a navigable channel near the present Puʻuloa saltworks, by which he made the estuary, known as "Pearl River," accessible to navigation. Making due allowance for legendary amplification, the estuary already had an outlet for its waters where the present gap is; but Keaunui is typically given the credit for widening and deepening it. After 1868, when the Commander of the Pacific Fleet visited the islands to look after American interests, naval officers played an important role in internal affairs. They served as arbitrators in business disputes, negotiators of trade agreements and defenders of law and order. Periodic voyages among the islands and to the mainland aboard U.S. warships were arranged for members of the Hawaiian royal family and important island government officials. When King Lunalilo died in 1873, negotiations were underway for the cessation of Pearl Harbor as a port for the duty-free export of sugar to the U.S. With the election of King Kalākaua in March 1874, riots prompted landing of sailors from USS Tuscarora and Portsmouth. The British warship, HMS Tenedos, also landed a token force. During the reign of King Kalākaua the United States was granted exclusive rights to enter Pearl Harbor and to establish "a coaling and repair station." The United States and the Hawaiian Kingdom signed the Reciprocity Treaty of 1875 as supplemented by Convention on December 6, 1884, the Reciprocity Treaty was made by James Carter and ratified it in 1887. On January 20, 1887, the United States Senate allowed the Navy to exclusive right to maintain a coaling and repair station at Pearl Harbor. (The US took possession on November 9 that year). The Spanish–American War of 1898 and the desire for the United States to have a permanent presence in the Pacific both contributed to the decision. Following the overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the United States Navy established a base on the island in 1899. On December 7, 1941, the base was attacked by the Imperial Japanese Navy airplanes and midget submarines, causing the American entry into World War II.

South China Sea underpins the economic dynamism of the region, which is based on extensive intra-regional and international trade. More than 5 trillion dollars'worth of trade passes through these waters each year. But the sea is contests by several Asian countries, which make this region a hot spot and could slide into a very dangerous water. U.S policy towards the South China Sea has evolved in response to the increase of tensions in these disputes and in particular to China's actions. Although the U.S does not take a position on the underlying claims to sovereignty, it has increased its involvement in the dispute with an emphasis on the peaceful resolution of disputes. As a result, maritime security in the South China Sea has become an issues in US-China relations.

Russia Panic: US bomber practiced an attack on a Russian naval base Baltic Sea region - A US B-52H Stratofortress large-payload multirole strategic bomber aircraft practiced a mock attack on a Russian naval base in the Baltic Sea region. A strategic bomber of the U.S. Air Force approached to within about 99 miles (160 km) of the border with the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad on Friday, according to flight data from air traffic network Plane Radar. “16:25 Moscow time. A US Air Force Boeing B-52H Stratofortress strategic bomber, registration number 61-0009, engaging in imitation of the bombing of the base of the Russian Baltic Fleet,” Plane Radar announced on Twitter on 15 March. The B-52 is one of the oldest airframes that the Air Force still operates. The Stratofortress bombers have been in every conflict since the Vietnam War. As to date, B-52s have been modified for low-level flight, conventional bombing, extended-range flights and transport of improved defensive and offensive equipment — including ballistic and cruise missiles that can be launched hundreds of miles from their targets. B-52H Stratofortress is capable of carrying and launching nuclear weapons. According to the current information, the bomber can fly at high subsonic speeds at altitudes of up to 50,000 feet and can be armed with nuclear-tipped cruise missiles or a conventional payload of up to 70,000 pounds. The B-52H bombers currently in service were built between 1961 and 1963, and are expected to fly until 2040. The Air Force will replace them with the new B-21 Raider bomber, currently under development.

30 December 1966, the United States and the UK executed an agreement through an Exchange of Notes which permit the United States to use the BIOT for defense purposes for 50 years (through December 2016), followed by a 20-year optional extension (to 2036) to which both parties must agree by December 2014. No monetary payment was made from the United States to the UK as part of this agreement or any subsequent amendment. Rather, the United Kingdom received a US$14 million discount from the United States on the acquisition of submarine-launched ballistic missile system Polaris missiles per a now-declassified addendum to the 1966 agreement. On 1 October 1977, Naval Support Facility, Diego Garcia, was established as the senior United States Navy command on the island. At the time the NAVCOMMSTA was the primary tenant, but as the new major facilities were completed, most notably the expanded anchorage and mooring area and the extended airfield, other tenants were commissioned. In 1980, the United States Navy established the Near-Term Prepositioned Force of 16 ships. Then NTPF became the Afloat Prepositioning Force (AFP) and eventually Maritime Prepositioning ship Squadron Two (MPSRON 2) consisting of 20 deep-water pre-positioned logistics ships anchored in the lagoon. In 1981, the Naval Air Facility was commissioned. It was decommissioned in 1987 and its responsibilities returned to the NSF. In 1982, Construction activities were transferred from the Seabees to a consortium of civilian contractors, and the majority of the projects were completed by 1988. On 26 March 1982, Barbara Shuping and five other women were assigned to the NSF. Prior to this assignment, no women had lived on island since those on the plantation in 1971. In 1985, the new port facilities were completed, and the USS Saratoga (CV-60) was the first aircraft carrier to tie up. Strategic Air Command began deploying Boeing B-52 Stratofortress bombers and aerial refueling aircraft to the newly completed airfield facilities in 1987. Following the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in August 1990, three ships of COMPSRON 2 sortied, delivering a Marine Expeditionary Brigade to Saudi Arabia for participation in the Gulf War. Other COMPSRON 2 ships offloaded the munitions, bombs, and fuel on Diego Garcia that were required for the American bomber fleet that deployed to airfield.

The U.S. Navy’s Sea Hunter unmanned surface vessel has become the first ship of any description to ever sail from San Diego, California to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and back without the need of a crew for navigation and steering. It’s a significant milestone for this particular vessel and its future cousins, which the service has primarily been developing as anti-submarine warfare platforms, but could also provide electronic warfare support and acting as decoys to help shield friendly forces. Defense contractor Leidos, which is leading the Sea Hunter project for the Navy, announced the achievement in a press release on Jan. 31, 2019. The notice did not say when the trimaran craft, formally known as the Medium Displacement Unmanned Surface Vehicle (MDUSV), had left from or returned to San Diego, a round trip of more than 5,200 miles.

Technically it's a Naval Station, and not a Navy "Base". Built in the 1940's, used for atomic bomb-shape testing as part of the Manhattan Project and abandoned since the 1990's the Salton Sea Navy Base is an incredible place to explore. We show you some of the interesting spots including The Pier, the "Power Station", "Building A-1", two ammo bunkers (technically, "ammo magazines") and the building that most people aren't aware of, the "Dogsite Building" where they loaded the dummy atomic bombs onto the planes for testing. We show you how to get to each spot including GPS coordinates, and let you know how hard it is to get there. Due to some washed out roads and deep sand, to get into the Salton Sea Navy Base you need 4-wheel drive and good clearance - any stock Jeep can make this trek easily.

John Richardson said on Tuesday the US and China “will meet each other more and more on the high seas” after a Chinese warship came close to a US ship in the disputed South China Sea. The Chinese vessel came within 45 yards of the USS Decatur during a “freedom of navigation” sail in late September, US Vice President Mike Pence said this month. The US mission was the latest attempt to counter what Washington sees as Beijing’s efforts to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, where Chinese, Japanese, and some Southeast Asian navies operate. In the weeks since, a US Navy research ship has visited Taiwan and two US warships sailed through the Taiwan Strait. China considers Taiwan a breakaway province and has bolstered its presence around the island country. In mid-October, during a meeting with his Japanese and South Korean counterparts, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said the US and its partners in the region would “continue to fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows and our national interests demand.”

As fighter jets roared off the flight deck and darted above the South China Sea, visitors onboard the carrier USS Ronald Reagan raised their phones for the inevitable selfies. Among those clicking souvenir images was a lieutenant general from the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, who was part of a VIP guest list as the carrier moved through contested waters. The carrier — which docked last week in Hong Kong in a good-faith gesture from Beijing — also offered a snapshot into challenges for the Pentagon in the Asia-Pacific region as China builds up its own naval prowess and ramps up efforts to solidify territorial demands. The United States seeks to keep its place as the dominant naval power across East Asia, where Washington and its allies believe Beijing is trying to reorder international rules and military alliances in place since World W4r II. read more:https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/in-south-china-sea-a-display-of-us-navy-strength--and-a-message-to-beijing/2018/11/24/ab97a636-ecd1-11e8-8b47-bd0975fd6199_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.2a3eaf4b0885 • Watch more videos: ► Here’s how many Billions the US will spend on Nuclear Weapons? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2emGF6C9u4 ► US Reacts after China's Military Activities Increased in the disputed South China Sea https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZ37hkEJVqQ Music by: "A Himitsu - Two Places" https://soundcloud.com/a-himitsu https://twitter.com/ahimitsu1 https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgFwu-j5-xNJml2FtTrrB3A DISCLAIMER: Information, Facts or Opinion expressed in this Video are Presented as Sources and do not reflects views of US Military and hence, US Military is not liable or responsible for the same.

LEADIN: A specialist team of sea lions have been showing off their detection skills in waters off Bahrain. They're part a US Navy unit, which has been taking part in a maritime security exercise. STORYLINE Meet Codi the sea lion. The mammal is part of the US Navy's defence against underwater threats such as mines. It has a Marine Mammal Programme which teaches sea lions, dolphins and whales to protect its personnel and military assets. The sea lions are trained in San Diego, California. But they can be deployed anywhere within 72 hours. Today Codi and three other sea lions are in Bahrain for the International Countermine Measures Exercise (IMCMEX). Two of them are are protecting the port. "We have a port security system that employs California Sea lions and electronic sensors to ensure that under water threats, swimmers and divers cannot come into the port, " explains Brian Weisman, the Operations Supervisor for the US Navy Marine Mammal Programme. And Codi has the opportunity to demonstrate his skills. He's tasked with finding a person in the water. In real-life, he could be hunting an intruder or helping on a search and rescue mission. "A sea lion is deployed down into the water. He detects the underwater threat, alerts the crew that something is out there by touching a small disk on the side of the boat and then the handlers hand off a marking device, a restraint device that the sea lions clamps onto their (the intruder's) leg," says Weisman. Codi finds his target and the marking device is attached to the man's leg. Naturally, the sea lion is rewarded for his success. This is the first time the sea lions have come to the Arabian Gulf. It's a very different climate to their Californian home, but the animals' attributes mean they are capable of working in a variety of environments. "Sea lions are just very adaptable animals. As you can tell, they are also terrestrial animals as well as in water animals. They can walk around. They are very easily transported from one area to the next," says Weisman. He continues: "They have exceptional hearing, underwater hearing. And they have very good vision in low light areas and no light areas. So they are very good about getting into small areas, high clutter areas. Areas and environments that you see in ports and that are difficult for manmade systems to do the same job." The US Navy claims one sea lion, two handlers, and a rubber boat is so effective at hunting for objects on the ocean floor, it can replace a full-sized naval vessel and its crew - including a group of human divers, and the doctors and machinery necessary to support the diving operation. Two other sea lions are onboard the USS Ponce in the Persian Gulf to help with the countermine measures.

South china sea : Philippines Concerned Amid Possible Ex-US Naval Base Takeover by China SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Asia & Pacific07:26 28.01.2019(updated 07:27 28.01.2019) Get short URLAfter a major corporate bankruptcy of a shipyard located at a former US naval base known as Subic Bay, Philippine and US officials are concerned that a port near the disputed South China Sea could fall under China’s control. Officials, including the Philippine defence secretary, expressed concerns regarding the Chinese presence in the area, including an economic presence, and fear of the possible purchase of the Subic Bay naval port, CNBC reported. READ MORE: Indonesia Establishes Military Base in South China Sea, but for What Purpose? The port has been operated by Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Philippines. The company, a shipbuilding unit of South Korean firm Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction, declared bankruptcy in January after defaulting on loans of over $400 million from Philippine banks, becoming one of the largest defaults in Philippine history. The company also has $900 million in loans from South Korean banks yet to be paid. Two Chinese companies have already expressed interest in taking over the shipyard, yet Philippine officials have spoken out against this action. Senator Grace Poe has called for an inquiry to determine the need for legal and regulatory frameworks for foreign ownership of a strategic national asset in the Subic Bay, according to local media. Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana also said last week that he had met with President Rodrigo Duterte to discuss the prospect of the Philippine Navy acquiring the shipbuilding business. "The Philippine Navy suggested that why not the Philippines take over so that we'll have a naval base there? Then we'll have shipbuilding capabilities," said Lorenzana during an event at the Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines last week. Companies from the US, Australia, Japan and South Korea have also expressed i... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The word "Seabee" comes from initials "CB". The Seabees have a history of building bases, bulldozing and paving thousands of miles of roadway and airstrips, and accomplishing a myriad of other construction projects in a wide variety of military theaters dating back to World War II... History World War II In December 1941, with U.S. involvement in war soon expected on both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, Rear Admiral Ben Moreell, Chief of the Navy's Bureau of Yards and Docks, recommended establishing Naval Construction Battalions at a newly constructed base at Davisville, Rhode Island (part of North Kingstown). With the attack on Pearl Harbor and the United States' entry into the war, he was given the go-ahead. The Davisville Advanced Base Depot became operational in June 1942. Camp Thomas, a personnel-receiving station on the base, was established in October of that year. It eventually contained 500 Quonset huts for personnel. On August 11, 1942, the Naval Construction Training Center, known as Camp Endicott, was commissioned at Davisville. The Camp trained over 100,000 Seabees during the Second World War. In California in May 1942, a base for supporting the Naval Construction Force was established at Port Hueneme in Ventura County. This base became responsible for shipping massive amounts of equipment and material to the efforts in the Pacific. The earliest Seabees were recruited from the civilian construction trades and were placed under the leadership of the Navy's Civil Engineer Corps. Because of the emphasis on experience and skill rather than physical standards, the average age of Seabees during WWII was 37. More than 325,000 men served with the Seabees in World War II, fighting and building on six continents and more than 300 islands. In the Pacific, where most of the construction work was needed, the Seabees landed soon after the Marines and built major airstrips, bridges, roads, gasoline storage tanks, and Quonset huts for warehouses, hospitals, and housing. They often operated under fire and frequently were forced to take part in the fighting to defend themselves and their construction projects. In the Pacific Theater they built 111 major airstrips and 441 piers, tanks for the storage of 100 m gallons of fuel, housing for 1.5 million men and hospitals for 70,000 patients. The Seabees were officially organized in the Naval Reserve on December 31, 1947. With the general demobilization following the war, the Naval Construction Battalions (NCBs) were reduced to 3,300 men on active duty by 1950. Between 1949 and 1953, Naval Construction Battalions were organized into two types of units: Amphibious Construction Battalions (ACBs) and Mobile Construction Battalions (MCBs), which were later designated Naval Mobile Construction Battalions (NMCBs) in the early- to mid-1960s to eliminate confusion with Marine Corps Base (MCB) in Vietnam...

U.S. B-52H Strategic Bomber Practiced a Mock Attack on a Russian Naval Base in the Baltic Sea Region A US B-52H Stratofortress large-payload multirole strategic bomber aircraft practiced a mock att4ck on a Russian naval base in the Baltic Sea region. A strategic bomber of the U.S. Air Force approached to within about 99 miles (160 km) of the border with the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad on Friday, according to flight data from air traffic network Plane Radar. “16:25 Moscow time. A US Air Force Boeing B-52H Stratofortress strategic bomber, registration number 61-0009, engaging in imitation of the bombing of the base of the Russian Baltic Fleet,” Plane Radar announced on Twitter on 15 March. The B-52 is one of the oldest airframes that the Air Force still operates. The Stratofortress bombers have been in every conflict since the Vietnam W4r. As to date, B-52s have been modified for low-level flight, conventional bombing, extended-range flights and transport of improved defensive and offensive equipment — including ballistic and cruise mis=siles that can be launched hundreds of miles from their targets. B-52H Stratofortress is capable of carrying and launching nuke weapons. According to the current information, the bomber can fly at high subsonic speeds at altitudes of up to 50,000 feet and can be armed with nuke-tipped cruise mis-siles or a conventional payload of up to 70,000 pounds. The B-52H bombers currently in service were built between 1961 and 1963, and are expected to fly until 2040. The Air Force will replace them with the new B-21 Raider bomber, currently under development. Source: https://goo.gl/p1SmuZ

China & Russia Panic (https://youtu.be/DJJLBvotG1Y) USA / China / Russia High Tension (https://youtu.be/Beqji2xQhW8) South China Sea High Tension - US / UK / China (https://youtu.be/ImSbaGXLKpw) The US sent a B-52 bomber through the South China Sea for the first time in months US Air Force B-52H Stratofortress bombers flew over the South and East China Seas. China has previously bristled at US bomber flights in the region, calling them "provocative." Beijing has lashed out multiple times in recent months over US freedom-of-navigation operations in the South China Sea and Taiwan strait transits conducted by the US Navy. "Two B-52H Stratofortress bombers took off from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, and participated in routine training missions," US Pacific Affairs told ABC News, explaining that while one bomber "conducted training in the vicinity of the South China Sea," the other trained near Japan in cooperation with the US Navy and Japanese forces. Online flight-tracking data for the flights indicates that one flew near the Philippines while the other conducted operations around Japan. The last time the US Air Force sent bombers through the South China Sea was in November. The US repeatedly sent bombers through the area last year. The B-52 bombers stationed in Guam are there in support of the US Air Force's Continuous Bomber Presence (CBP) mission intended to deter any country with adversarial intentions. Bomber flights over the South and East China Seas are perceived as challenges to China, which has attempted to assert its dominance over the strategic waterways. The US has, in the past, sent bombers to Korea in a show of force to the North in the wake of hostile actions. As it does with US Navy freedom-of-navigation operations, Beijing has previously criticized US bomber flights over the South and East China Seas, calling them "provocative." The US has conducted two freedom-of-navigation operations in the South China Sea this year, and the US Navy has also twice sent US warships through the Taiwan Strait. In response, China has issued warnings, urging to steer clear of these areas, and even flexed its muscles by showing off its anti-ship weaponry, such as the "carrier killer" DF-26 intermediate-range ballistic missile. B-52 bombers are high flying heavily-armed aircraft. Some are nuclear-capable bombers, while others have been denuclearized. It is unclear whether the B-52 bombers flying above contested waterways are nuclear-capable aircraft. Source www.mysanantonio.com

Protest against U.S. Navy Marine Mammal Program was held on October 22,2016 at the Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego CA. For years, the U.S. Navy has held dolphins and sea lions in small enclosures in San Diego (California), Bangor (Washington), Kings Bay (Georgia) and used them in many operations. Training is similar to that of a police dog and involves ‘positive reinforcement’ and the use of treats. The US Navy uses trained bottlenose dolphins to locate and mark mines on the sea floor or in shallow water. Other teams of dolphins and sea lions are used to protect ships and harbours, detect enemy swimmers, as well as recover equipment from the sea floor. The US Navy began its Marine Mammal Program in the 1960s, when it tested species including orcas, sharks and birds. It eventually settled on dolphins and sea lions. Although the animals are housed in the US, they are always on call to be deployed anywhere around the world in 72 hours. In late 80’s, insiders found that marine mammal intelligence & military intelligence were mutually exclusive & could not reliably coexist to even minimal national security standards. U.S. Navy finally admits NMMP programs are obsolete due to ROV/Drone technological advances that have replaced human ground troops & air support systems. 100+ dolphins and 40+ sea lions deserve Honorable Discharge. This $20-30 Million Dollar waste of tax dollars can certainly be put to better use for National Security or Veteran Assistance. #EndDolphinGITMO The best of #ScubaFilmFactory : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLU_kilv65dsX2VadmNK-aNms44WL_R6Ns Please watch Documentary 'The Dark History of Killer Whale Captures': https://vimeo.com/229322388 A chronological documentary ranging from the 60s to present briefly describes kidnapping of orcas from their natural habitat.

Russian navy warships shadow & intercept two US navy destroyers entered Baltic Sea - Russian warships have been deployed to shadow two U.S. Navy destroyers operating in the Baltic Sea, it has been reported. Two Russian corvettes, the Boykiy and Soobrazitelny, of the Baltic Fleet have been escorting the USS Porter and USS Gravely, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense. Last week the USS Gravely, an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, was spotted passing through the Danish straits and approaching the Baltic sea, according to the Daily Star. A picture showing the destroyer pulling into Copenhagen, Denmark, was tweeted by the U.S. Navy, who said the ship was there "for a scheduled port visit." Today USS Gravely entered the Baltic Sea alongside the USS Porter under escort by Russia, whose Kaliningrad enclave hosts its main naval base in the region, Baltiysk. "The forces of the Baltic Fleet took Gravely and Porter, the destroyers of the U.S. Navy that entered the southern part of the Baltic Sea, under escort. Russian Navy corvettes Boiky and Soobrazitelny are monitoring the actions of the U.S. ships," the Russian National Defence Management Centre said Monday. Capable of carrying up to 56 Tomahawk missiles, the destroyers are the latest U.S. Navy warships to sail near Russia's territorial waters in an apparent show of force. The U.S. military and NATO allies have stepped up their presence in northern and eastern Europe, deploying troops, aircraft and warships to those areas, and in turn, heightening tensions with Russia. Meanwhile in the Black Sea, U.S. guided-missile destroyer USS Donald Cook is being monitored closely by Russian warships after arriving in the region over the weekend.

This silent 16mm home movie dates from just after the WWII era and was shot by a member of the U.S. military. Starting at :51 you will see operations at a U.S. Navy seaplane base. We're not sure where this was located but probably Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. Some of the PBM-3 Mariner aircraft shown are marked "SF" on the tail, possibly standing for "San Francisco"? At 3:30 the PBM-3 takes off across the bay. At 6:25 the unit is reviewed by the commanding officer who appears to be a one-star Admiral. The film ends at 9:51 with an interesting sequence, as an old woman begs for coins amid U.S. sailors. The Martin PBM Mariner was an American patrol bomber flying boat of World War II and the early Cold War period. It was designed to complement the Consolidated PBY Catalina in service. A total of 1,366 were built, with the first example flying on 18 February 1939 and the type entering service in September 1940. The first PBM-1s entered service with Patrol Squadron Fifty-Five (VP-55) of the United States Navy on 1 September 1940. Prior to the USA's entry into World War II, PBMs were used (together with PBYs) to carry out Neutrality Patrols in the Atlantic, including operations from Iceland. Following Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, PBMs were used on anti-submarine patrols, sinking their first German U-boat, U-158 on 30 June 1942. PBMs were responsible, wholly or in part, for sinking a total of ten U-boats during World War II. PBMs were also heavily used in the Pacific War, operating from bases at Saipan, Okinawa, Iwo Jima and the South West Pacific. The United States Coast Guard acquired 27 Martin PBM-3 aircraft during the first half of 1943. In late 1944, the service acquired 41 PBM-5 models and more were delivered in the latter half of 1945. Ten were still in service in 1955, although all were gone from the active Coast Guard inventory by 1958 (when the last example was released from CGAS San Diego and returned to the U.S. Navy). These flying boats became the backbone of the long-range aerial search and rescue efforts of the Coast Guard in the early post-war years until supplanted by the P5M Marlin and the HU-16 Albatross in the mid-1950s. PBMs continued in service with the U.S. Navy following the end of World War II, flying long patrol missions during the Korean War. It continued in front line use until replaced by its successor, the P5M Marlin, with the last USN squadron equipped with the PBM, Patrol Squadron Fifty (VP-50), retiring them in July 1956.

U.S. Navy Conducts Major Show Of Force Drill In Arabian Sea, Warning Iran The John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group (CSG) and the Essex Amphibious Ready Group (ARG) started integrated operations in the Arabian Sea on Wednesday, supporting operations in Afghanistan. “Carrier strike groups and amphibious ready groups are inherently flexible maneuver forces, and these high-end integrated operations illustrate our commitment to the Central Region and demonstrate our ability to deliver naval combat power at a time and place of our choosing,” Vice Adm. Jim Malloy, the commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command and U.S. 5th Fleet, said in a statement. Enabling a political solution in Afghanistan is considered vital to ending U.S. military operations in the country, Army Lt. Gen. Austin “Scott” Miller, now the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan and of NATO’s Operation Resolute Support, said during his Senate confirmation hearing in June. The crews and fighters from both Stennis and Essex are expected to conduct a series of joint exercises, including an in-flight refueling of an F-35 from an F/A-18F Super Hornet, and cross-deck training of deck, supply, intelligence, media, and medical personnel, according to a 5th Fleet statement. USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74) left Naval Base Kitsap, in Bremerton, Wash., for deployment in October, and will ultimately enter a four-year mid-life refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) at Huntington Ingalls Industries Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia. Stennis’ arrival marks the first time a Navy aircraft carrier operated in the region since March when USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) left the area. In October, Wasp-class amphibious warship USS Essex (LHD-2) entered the Persian Gulf, bringing for the first time a squadron of Marine Corps F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighters to the region through the Strait of Hormuz. Joining Stennis in the Arabian Sea is Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 9, Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Mobile Bay (CG-53) and Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Decatur (DDG 73) and USS Mitscher (DDG-57). #USNavy #USS # USWarship #Carrier #Aircraftcarrier
