Littoral Combat Ships in Action
Gourley, John
ISBN: 9780897478069
Squadron/Signal Publications  2016 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, SS14036. Sea power in the 21st Century is rapidly taking on a new look, vastly different from the massive and ponderous navies of the past. Littoral combat ships or LCSs are a class of small surface vessels that are meant to operate in coastal areas where they can neutralize the many fluid localized threats that are so characteristic of the modern age. Designed for deployment in place of the destroyer or cruiser, the LCS was envisaged by the Navy as a networked, agile, stealthy surface combatant capable of defeating anti-access and asymmetric threats in the littorals. The U.S. Navy operates two basic classes of LCS: the Freedom class and the Independence class, the latter being characteristically a trimaran. In keeping with the basic LCS concept, crew size, like the size of the vessel itself, is to be small. Deployments will thus involve 50-percent fewer ships and 25-percent smaller crews than previously, the technical sophistication, versatility, and speed of the LCS is to more than make up for the difference in quantity. LCS versatility partly consists in the vesselís ability to be reconfigured for different duties and roles by changing mission modules. Mission modules consist of weapon systems, sensors, etc., that are designed for specific types of task. Specific personnel will accompany relevant modules. Modules have been designed for anti-submarine warfare (ASW), mine hunting (MCM), surface warfare (SUW) and special warfare missions. Littoral Combat Ships in Action puts you inside these cutting-edge fighting ships and introduces their various configurations and their modern weapons systems. Packed with more than 250 photographs.   As New

Nimitz-Class Aircraft Carriers
Elward, Brad
ISBN: 9781846037597
Osprey Pub Co  2010 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG174. The Nimitz class aircraft carrier is the ultimate symbol of the United States superpower status. A true behemoth, this is an unsurpassed weapons platform that overshadows all of its nearest rivals. A history of the largest aircraft carriers in the world, with runways over 300 meters long, this book looks at the development and deployment of the nuclear-powered Nimitz class aircraft carriers from 1975 when the USS Nimitz, the lead ship of the class, was commissioned, to the present day. All of the class are still operational and the tenth and last of the class, the USS George H. W. Bush, was commissioned in 2009. Here, Brad Elward provides a detailed overview of their design and development, highlighting their unique features, from jet blast deflectors to cutting edge radar systems, and a history of the Nimitz class in service, from deployment in the Gulf during Operation Desert Storm, through to the enforcement of the no fly zone over Bosnia.   As New

Ticonderoga Class Cruisers in Action
Gourley, John
ISBN: 9780897478335
Squadron/Signal Publications  2017 
 Soft Cover New book, 80 pages, SS14038. Ticonderoga-Class Cruisers were originally conceived in the late 1970s as a new guided-missile destroyer ship class of nuclear-powered escorts. Instead, cost forced planners to build the new cruisers with modified destroyer hulls and gas-turbine propulsion. The end result was a longer, sleeker cruiser with a formidable variety of offensive and defensive weapons as well as cutting edge radars, sonars and a full electronic warfare suite. Ticonderoga-class vessels eventually totaled 27. They have shown the flag in ports all across the globe, maintained peace, and effectively performed their primary role to protect the aircraft carriers with anti-submarine and anti-air systems. Armed with Tomahawk cruise and Harpoon anti-ship missiles, ships of this class have destroyed targets on the seas, air, land and have even eliminated a damaged satellite flying 133 miles above the Pacific Ocean with a missile impact at a velocity of 22,000 mph. While the first five ships of the class have been decommissioned, 22 Ticonderoga-class ships navigate around the planet to protect Americaís interests, more than 200 photos and 2 line drawings,  As New

US Nuclear Submarines: The Fast Attack
Christley, Jim
ISBN: 9781846031687
Osprey Pub Co Oxford, United Kingdom 2007 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG138. The adoption of nuclear power revolutionized submarine design and means that vessels can stay underwater for months, trailing the enemy or training weapons on land targets from secret positions, "always there, never seen." Jim Christley, a former submariner, explores here the influence of Admiral Hyman Rickover in cautiously introducing these stealthy machines of war, and frankly discusses the power and perils of using nuclear reactors at sea. Using unique and detailed artwork, he outlines the many evolving aspects of design within the submarine classes, from the very first nuclear submarine, USS Nautilus, to the classes under construction even now. Contents: Introduction, The Propulsion Problem, Evolution: Nautilus to Virginia, Fast Attack Submarine Sensors, The Fire-Control System and Weapons, History and Operational Use, Bibliography, Index.  As New
