90 aircraft would be about the size of the air wing of the Forrestal and later class ships in the late 1960s and 1970s. Of course not all of the aircraft would be fighter bombers.

The seven missing crew members were found dead in a flooded compartment. My condolences to their crew mates and families.

The Perry class FFG that hit a mine was the the USS Samuel B. Roberts. Also the Perry class USS Stark was hit by Exocet missiles. Both were repaired and returned to service.

Fantastic series Caddaric. A couple of questions on the Military Intelligence Company- Should there be RQ-7 UAVs in the UAV platoon? Or do the drones belong to another organization and "loaned" to the MI company? The M88A1 seems a bit odd in the MI company since there are no other tracked vehicles. ...
