The Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday says the Navy can sustain about 300 ships with the budget it has now. One rule to prevent him from getting more money is bunk, according to Seamus Daniels, Associate Director and Associate Fellow for Defense Budget Analysis at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

  • Daniels said the “rule of thirds” to split money equally between the services has not been followed historically and does not make sense strategically.
  • As the country tries to operationalize a new defense strategy, there may be a change in which branch receives the greatest share of the budget, said Daniels.
  • Daniels said it could be time to redivide roles and missions among services, considering new challenges facing the United States defense enterprise, such as gray zone threats and different technologies.
