The United States Navy is the most capable force in the world with a fleet boasting hundreds of ships and numerous aircraft. Boasting an annual budget of nearly $380 billion the US Navy is well-supplied to ensure success.

The cause of concern was revealed the US Navy released their Strategic Readiness Review (SRR). The reports show that despite their best efforts the Navy is not as well suited for combat as they would have hoped for and needs to establish that readiness as a priority.

In summation, the Navy has hit their limit as numbers dwindle and morale begins to fall.
