• Navy Ops, Bd. 13/2023: USS Dwight D. Eisenhower

    Issue 13 of Navy Ops contains reports and features on the current deployment of the carrier battle group around the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) and its escort ships in the Middle East region, on the service of the Australian aircraft carrier HMS Melbourne from 1955 to 1982 and on the current status of the construction programme for the Virginia-class fighter submarines.
    We also portray the Douglas A-3 Skywarrior naval bomber, which is the heaviest aircraft in the world that was regularly deployed from aircraft carriers. In the second part of our multi-part series of articles on the Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates, we shed light on the development of the US Navy standard frigate in recent decades. We report exclusively on the port visit of the South Korean Navy to the Hanseatic city of Hamburg at the end of October 2023 and take a look at the different types of submarines of the secretive North Korean Navy.
