US Navy applies lessons from costly shipbuilding mistakes

Recommended Posts

🤔 Ya' know... I'm only enlisted but I could have told the upper chain about that before they went on a rampage. ("Let's build something and install future technology that doesn't exist yet.")

BATH, Maine (AP) — The U.S. Navy appears to have learned from its costly lessons after cramming too much new technology onto warships and speeding them into production as it embarks on building new destroyers, which are the backbone of the fleet.

Military officials say they’re slowing down the design and purchase of its next-generation destroyers to ensure new technology like powerful lasers and hypersonic missiles are mature before pressing ahead on construction.
