Navy To Congress: Here’s Your F-35C Carrier — How Do We Pay For It


Recommended Posts

On Monday evening, the Navy awarded Newport News Shipbuilding a contract valued at up to $315 million for modifications to the USS John F. Kennedy so it can operate F-35C fighters. Normally, such deals would be a routine contract modification, buried amid the billions the Pentagon contracts for on any given day.
