Navy’s New $7.8 Billion Destroyer Is Now Running Six Years Late


Recommended Posts

The first of three new destroyers for the U.S. Navy won’t be delivered with full combat capability until the first quarter of next year, another slip in a $23 billion program that’s now running six years late.

The previously undisclosed delay for the first ship, the $7.8 billion USS Zumwalt, was confirmed by Colleen O’Rourke, a Navy spokeswoman, via email. It was supposed to hit the milestone of having full combat capability last month, which already was more than five years later than originally scheduled and 10 years after construction began. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-09/navy-s-new-7-8-billion-destroyer-is-now-running-six-years-late
