I got to go on the CVN 78 (USS Ford) today.  After my meeting, I walked around the ship a bit.  I saw the AAG (advanced arresting gear) and a few other systems, walked up to the bridge, and walked around the flight deck.

Docked across the pier from the Ford was the Enterprise.  Sort of sad to see it empty and partially stripped.  In with the new, out with the old, I guess.

Is EMRG electro-magnetic gun tech? Wasn't the US Navy doing that, but decided to abandon it?
