Navy Shouldn't Build Next-Gen Destroyers Until Tech is Proven, Navy Secretary Signals

Recommended Posts

The Navy should consider buying Arleigh Burke-class destroyers until the technology it wants to install in its next-generation destroyers is ready for prime time, Secretary Carlos Del Toro said.

“Perhaps a better strategy might be to build a few more DDG Flight IIIs to ensure that we have the capacity necessary to deter China and do the other things that we need to do until such moment in time when” the DDG(X) and other new ships are ready, he said during the U.S. Navy Memorial’s SITREP event Tuesday.
