  1. Very informative talk. I see that today a Russian LST was lost. I can’t tell if was the result of an accident onboard or if the Ukranians managed to get a missile into it. I had a strange thought about taking over the oligarch’s yachts, weaponizing them with pintle mounted missiles, paint them grey and reflag them as Ukrainian naval vessels. I get crazy ideas sometimes!

  2. My thought is why don’t we give the Ukrainian some Minds to drop in their territorial Waters. They have c-130 that could be used.
