    I thought the LITTORAL COMBAT SHIP (LCS) had to be towed back to port, because the drive train didn’t work. The F-35 still doesn’t work right either. If you want to go to war with the Russians, or whoever the enemy of the day is, at least have some military equipment that works.

    These idiots are going to get us all blown up. How much you wanna bet a Sarmat works?

  3. Danielle Stanley says:

    War is the chief National Product of the USA. Major General Smedley D. Butler had it right: WAR IS A RACKET, A few profit. The many pay.
    Anyone can buy a copy of this short book by writing: Veterans for Peace, P.O. Box 142562, Gainesville, Florida, 32614.

  4. Mark Ribbit says:

    Great compilation as usual Christian.
    It’s kind of ‘weird’ that the U.S. has no qualms about arming its enemies. 🙁

    A couple of suggestions that will make reading and digestion of these numbers a lot easier.
    For each section, could you sort by total sales numbers per company rather than alphabetically?

    Also could you come up with a total sales figure across all categories, also sorted from biggest to smallest
    by company?

    • Christian Sorensen says:

      Excellent suggestions, Mark. Thank you very much. I will heed that advice during the distillation process for this current month and see how it looks 🙂
      Please continue to share these monthly lists with your friends and family.
