The Pentagon intends to expand the military fleet

U.S. officials are planning to increase the size of the navy with drone ships and new submarines.

This is reported by the publication “Defense News”, referring to the documents of the Pentagon.

The military department conducted a study, according to the conclusions of which the American fleet should become lighter. In this regard, the United States will not rely on aircraft carriers and will be engaged in the creation of unmanned ships, submarines and the expansion of the logistics network.

“It will be a balanced force of more than 350 ships – manned and unmanned – built on time and on budget”, – said the U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper.
