Talk:USS Samuel B. Roberts (FFG-58)
|WikiProject Ships||(Rated Start-class)|
From what I could gather in about three minutes reading articles that are linked to from this article, the US had been operating in the Persian Gulf in anti-Iranian efforts for a while when the mine incident happened. Not mentioning any of that, and portraying the whole thing as if Sammy B was just out for a little drive when attacked by the evil Iranians seems a bit.... weird. Perhaps someone might want to fix that? 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:29, 12 January 2008 (UTC)
Just noticed that the Operation Praying Mantis article states one frigate, one smaller vessel sunk, yet here it says one frigate, three smaller vessels. Rolinator 02:53, 24 September 2007 (UTC)
Nice cleanup work, Wwoods. Two qs: why "variable-pitch" prop instead of "controllable-pitch," as the USN calls it? And why the Don't Tread On Me flag, which is flown solely by the active USN ship with the longest time in commission? Bbpen 16:18, 26 Jan 2005 (UTC)
- The DTOM flag is now flown by all commissioned ships in the USN. See First Navy Jack for the specifics. Don't know about the other. Jinian 02:41, Jan 27, 2005 (UTC)
- I had thought variable-pitch was the usual term, but okay, I've changed it back. (Maybe someone should write the article :-). Personally, I think the DTOM jack demonstrates why flags shouldn't include writing, but there it is.
- By the way the template I'm using is User:Wwoods/Perry class frigate page template. If you've any other suggestions for changes, feel free.

Just a thought, but should this pic of the ship showing the mine damage be used on this page? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Ffg58minedamage2.jpg -m-i-k-e-y- 21:29, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
