Friday Video

As we head into the long weekend, here's a video the Navy put out last month about USS Maine (SSBN 741):

A couple videos with more in-depth information about Maine put out at the same time are here and here.

Meanwhile, the Russians are reporting that they'll put one of their new Borey-class boomers in each ocean. That means NUC opportunities for both east and west coast American SSNs (as well as spare-part cannibalization nightmares for the Russkie supply officers). w00t!

Have a great Labor Day weekend, everyone!

Update 1405 31 August: While you're at it over the long weekend, you can have fun reading the ill-informed captions that go with the excellent photos in this Business Insider story about Virginia-class boats.
