A broad, informal review is provided of the problems involved in justifying heavy expenditures for development of new types of Naval vehicles. It is argued that questions of need and worth are commonly treated too shallowly. A number of frequently urged simple justifications are examined and dismissed. The author closes by urging that vehicle proponents attempt to justify their proposals in terms of special impact on the results of realistic Naval Scenarios.
