USS Gerald R. Ford Finally Set Sail on its First Deployment

Recommended Posts

The US Navy's newest aircraft carrier — the first-in-class USS Gerald R. Ford — is setting sail on its first deployment.

The ship is the Navy's most advanced aircraft carrier and features a suite of new technologies intended to help the Navy maintain its edge over rival powers like Russia and China. These advanced capabilities, however, have come at a cost. The carrier is way over budget and years behind schedule.
