Re: Too bad it took a collision

The touch screen system was obviously conceived of and agreed to by people with no experience or concept of damage control in battle situations.

In the old days in the British navy there were articificers who could maintain and repair almost anything on the go, including jury rigging steering and things like mechanical throttles.

How would damage to your touch screens and associated coms for them, be dealt with in battle conditions today?
