Amazing how much damage an angry sailor can do- maybe more than an anti ship missile??!
Maybe the next generation of naval warfare will be getting Chinese and Russian sailors mad at their own navies!

Let’s just hope the Navy has learned important lesson from this. Like the Falkland war when it’s not a great idea to make ships structures out of aluminum.

I guess they will wait until the sailor is formally charged but still no reason given. The latest is he tampered with the fire suppression system. I am sure it was the automatic system. The only real way to give the fire the head start it would need to be unmanageable once discovered.

I’m sure it will be litigated in court during a trial and thus many details will be held until then.
