WASHINGTON – The U.S. Navy sealed the deal on a 10th ship in its latest iteration of the Virginia-class attack submarine, issuing a $2.4 billion adjustment on a contract initially awarded in December 2019.

The original contract was for nine boats with an option for a 10th, which brings the total cost of the contract with Prime Contractor General Dynamics Electric Boat to $24.1 billion dollars. The net increase for the contract is $1.89, according to a General Dynamics release. Huntington Ingalls Newport News is GDEB’s partner yard in the program.
