      How did scrapping basically every ship of note from both world wars go for the Royal Navy? Have the savings on museum ship upkeep manifested in a capable fleet?

        Admirals always want the latest toys. Old ships cost money even in mothballed. Often there are also limits on how many ships they can have. That's why they are quick to scrap old ships.

        Huh?
        We literally have Belfast moored in the Thames.
        Warspite or Vanguard would have been nice to have kept though. You can go visit Hood, but I don't think that counts as a museum.

      it is idiocy to say such a thing. Cultural narratives are critically important to the functioning of a nation; nations themselves are nothing BUT cultural narratives.

    Turns out that carriers are money sinks and america is already littered with museum ships. In any case, i don't see any drop of morale specifically because muh reddit supership didn't turn into another floating tourist trap.

    Enterprise is a massive bawd, though. Rightly deserved.

      I dont have a link to the image itself, but it was that every U.S ship named after the enterprise will have a piece of the OG enterprise's keel in their hull.
      The machine spirit would be absolutely unfathomable.

    CV-6 died so it could be reincarnated as CVN-65.
    CVN-65 died so it could become CVN-80.
    Because of this, the USS Enterprise will get to sink PLAN carriers in the Sino-American War of 2030.

      You can use the name even if a museum ship still exists. USS Alabama is both BB-60 and SSBN-731.

        It's not just the name, though. It's also the continuity of the steel. On all levels except the mundane, CV-6 and CVN-80 are the ship.

    >Tfw you'll never win the lottery and buy a museum ship to recommission it
    >Tfw you'll never make it a cruise ship crewed by a motley crew of artists
    >Tfw you'll never do random humanitarian work, and vaporize pirates with the main deck guns
    This isn't fair
