THE FASTEST SHIP IN THE US NAVY: BOEING PEGASUS-CLASS HYDROFOILS !

In 1945 while working with a new radar system the scientist noticed that the chocolate bar in his pocket has melted. Believe it or not this was the actual birth of the microwave oven. Development of military technology has brought us a very big number of new everyday usable discoveries. But to be fair, not all new military technologies are perfect and some just needed to go back to the drawing board or maybe they just created expenses that were greater than the advancement they provided. This can be said about one of the fastest and most efficient naval vessel, the Boeing Pegasus-Class Hydrofoil. While it was able to slice thru heavy seas with its bow raised above the waves there were still many other concerns with this fast attack weapon system that caused its discontinuation. This video is one of the best way to see this vessel in action since All ships of the Pegasus class have been decommissioned since 1993.
