US Navy wants long-range missiles, more maintenance money in wish list

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Navy would not buy more ships if it were given more money in fiscal 2023.

The Navy often uses its so-called unfunded priorities list sent to Congress to ask for another destroyer or connector vessel. But the service is standing firm in its belief that it doesn’t want a fleet any larger than what it can afford to keep ready — having enough sailors, funding for training, dollars and shipyard capacity for maintenance and modernization work, munitions to fill missile launchers, spares to fill stock rooms, and more.
