The US Navy will be standing up a post graduate tactics school for Professional Surface Warfare Officers in the same manner as the
Navy Strake and Air Warfare Center (NSAWC), TOPGUN.
The surface Navy will take a page from the naval aviation community and standup a new command to teach combined surface tactics to the service’s top surface warfare officers by the end of the year, Vice Adm. Tom Copeman, commander of U.S. Surface Forces said in a Tuesday presentation at the Surface Navy Association symposium 2014 in Crystal City, Va.
Naval Surface and Expeditionary Warfare Command (NSEWC)—modeled in part after the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center which trains pilots in strike and air to air combat —will train high preforming SWOs across several warfare disciplines.
I think this idea has been long past due.
xbradtc asked a question I didn’t think of: How are they going to do aggressor squadrons?
My only question is “When does the movie come out?” :)
