On the Front Cover
It seems useful to mount powerful, long-range weapons on fast, sea-kindly, and inconspicuous ships. At least, thinking along such lines must have lain behind the decision to mount Harpoon missiles on foil-borne small combatants. Used with foresight and skill, such craft can help in the struggle to control the central oceans by denying the foe passage through the straits and narrows upon which so many of his ships are dependent. This painting, created especially for Naval Review 1978 by R. G. Smith, shows such craft at work. It is reproduced through the courtesy of McDonnell Douglas.
