Navy's $7.8 Billion Destroyer Now Due for Delivery 5 Years Late


Recommended Posts

The first ship in the U.S. Navy’s $23 billion program to build a new class of destroyers is scheduled for a September delivery -- more than five years later than originally scheduled and 10 years after construction began on the stealthy vessels built by General Dynamics Corp.

Delivery plans for the Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer have been a roller-coaster of changing milestones, most recently moved from May of this year to September, according to budget documents confirmed by a Navy spokeswoman. The ship isn’t expected to have an initial combat capability until September 2021, at least three years later than planned. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-27/navy-s-7-8-billion-destroyer-now-due-for-delivery-5-years-late
