There were some questions about the Navy’s 355 ship goal in comments; this is a slightly older piece at the Diplomat that hopefully answers some of them…

The US Navy is struggling to achieve its ambition of a 355-ship fleet with a budget that remains relatively flat. In the last few days, Defense News has reported on several memos proposing cuts to new construction and retirement of existing ships in order to save money. The memos should be understood as salvos in a bureaucratic battle with the Department of Defense to establish priorities for the Navy’s future shipbuilding plans.
