      I think the navy should paint some of their modern ships in these camo schemes to honor the great ships of the past.

      In these days of radar etc camo schemes are mainly redundant, so painted ships would look good - but budget cuts......

      Budget cuts true, but in the normal upkeep and constant painting to keep corrosion at bay they could do camo then. Would be cool to see and with radar and all the imaging they have your right camo would be redundant... but that means that it would not affect the combat surviability. Unlike aviation where visual ID and not being seen as long as possible is important.
