Think on it, if your are standing in a field staying your oponent down from 100 yards away,

Even the finest Katana forged by a master sword maker who has put the most well crafted folds in the steel, can cut through a body today just effectively as it did 500 years ago.


But if you oponent has equally expensive rifle, then novelity of the Katana soon gets over shadowed by it's usefullness today.

The battleship is the Katana, the Carrier Strike group the rifle, up close and personal, a Katana would be devastating, however...

In a world full of men with rifles... Your going to have to change with the times.

A battleship today, would be a Novelity Item, moreover than anything practical.

Ask me? Ever bought something expensive that you claim you could use for only a handful of situations?

But in the End you find that either those situations you claimed are few and far in between, or just are not even relavent nowa days? Now you are having trouble justifing the costs?

Thats the Battleship today.

Sure You could use it for one or two scenarios on today's plain of Naval weapons deployment, but with new factors, you won't use that ship as much as you may think on paper.

And like that lead sinker kit I bought a few months back, looked great, bought it, but I can only claim using it about twice...
