So I'm not into theoretical physics...

I want some area of physics that doesn't involve something that I will never use in a real world setting, like string theory, or cosmology, both are interesting, but I don't think they'd pay the bills?

Computational astrophysics involves, I think, a lot of computational fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodyanmics simulation. That type of skill could be applicable to fluid dynamics simulations in defense engineering, although I've heard that there is a trend of engineering companies using generalized CFD software more than in-house software...so you might want to ask a real CFD engineering before you believe me.
