Response to Apparently, there was a ship mounted reactor

I wasn't aware the Army had ship mounted reactors but I did know that the Army played around with a bunch of reactor designs during the cold war in order to provide power to isolated outposts. Generally, the US Army had a pretty spotty record when it came to successful reactor designs. I don't know a whole lot about their operational history but Army reactor operators (and one Navy CEC operator) did provide us with the "stuck control rod criterion" for reactor design following the SL-1 accident.

Any event where an operator gets nailed to a ceiling with a control rod through the chest is a pretty spectacular failure.
