A famous French song. santa’s biggest present in 2016 went to dcns!
Only a return of Tony Abbott to the Prime Ministership in 2017 would return Australia to the Soryu.

The Barbequed Chickent looks particularly yummy "バーベキューチキン1ピース ¥650
国内産のジューシーな骨付もも肉を特製のタレに
漬け込んで、香ばしく焼き上げました。
仕上げのBBQソースは、まろやかな味わいです"

Have a great Christmas to.

Regards

Hope you have a Merry Christmas ans a Happy New Year!

Hopefully, we'll find out more about the USN's new "Super" Mk-48 Torp next year:

"The U.S. Navy is now prototyping a new, longer range and more lethal submarine-launched
heavyweight Mk 48 that can better destroy enemy ships, subs and incoming weapons at longer
ranges, service officials said.

Many details of the new weapon, which include newer propulsion mechanisms and multiple
kinds of warheads, are secret and not publically available. However, senior Navy leaders
have talked to Scout Warrior about the development of the weapon in a general sense."
