FORWARD DEPLOYED SUPPORT BASE/DOCK

mobile forward deployed base/drydock

This idea is based on an an essay I am writting  on the cost of fighting wars in modern times.

Basically would it not be more cost effective to have mobile forward deployable base/docks instead of the exspensive permanent land based bases?

The base could be moved as world events dictate, have enhanced drydocking caabilities.Large enough to have flight decks if required.

Good point! I was thinking Helo pads but never got around to it. The design thought been why not have full port or base resources including dry dock and repair

Just found your site-very cool. Also agree with your views regarding government decision processes, all about looking after their arse after they're booted out
