The Navy reported that it had won out in a great engineering adventure which has made U.S. warships, pound for pound, the most efficient craft on the seven seas. Its new high-pressure, high-temperature steam turbine has succeeded beyond its rosiest hopes. The new design:
> Saves up to 35% in fuel.
> Adds up to 1,000 miles to a warship's cruising range.
> Enables each ship to carry more armament.
> Increases the effective size of the Navy by allowing more ships to be on the line at all times.
