    Is Malabar Exercise what India withdrew from this year to avoid antagonizing the Chinese?

    No, Malabar is a bilateral series...

    What India withdrew from was to be trilateral series between India Japan and US somewhere in Pecefic ?

    I noticed an artical that says the new aircraft carriers the USA builiding will have 3 times the electrical power generation of the old carriers for power directed energy weapons. I wonder what is out there we dont know about.

    The new A1B reactor plant is a smaller, more efficient design that provides approximately three times the electrical power of the Nimitz-class A4W reactor plant. The modernization of the plant led to a higher-core energy density, lower demands for pumping power, a simpler construction, and the use of modern electronic controls and displays. These changes resulted in a two-thirds reduction of watch standing requirements and a significant decrease of required maintenance.[23]

    A larger power output is a major component to the integrated warfare system. Engineers took extra steps to ensure that integrating unforeseen technological advances onto a Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier would be possible. The U.S. Navy projects that the Gerald R. Ford class will be an integral component of the fleet for a staggering ninety years into the future (the year 2105
