To quote from a famous movie:

"A one-eyed monkey hanging from a 10 cent balloon could blow 'em all to hell with a hand grenade!"

Bad idea.

POLL DESCRIPTION
The Arsenal Ship, originally proposed by the late Admiral Joseph Metcalf III in the 1980s, was described in concept as a ship built to transport missile systems… and not much else. Its goal: maximum ordnance on target.

Should the U.S. Navy revive this concept?
