US Navy says its new carrier only needed a fraction of the repairs required the last time a flattop did 'shock trials' 34 years ago


Recommended Posts

On March 1, the US Navy said its newest carrier, USS Gerald R. Ford, had completed its first planned incremental availability, a six-month modernization and maintenance process intended to give the carrier its final touches before its first deployment.

Ford entered its PIA after completing full-ship shock trials last summer. Those trials involved detonating three 40,000-pound explosives in the water around Ford. They marked the first such tests the Navy has conducted on a carrier since 1987.
