Navy re-ups guided-missile destroyer USS Arleigh Burke for another 5 years

Recommended Posts

The Navy last week approved plans to keep the guided-missile destroyer USS Arleigh Burke in service another five years, meaning the first-in-class ship will have sailed for four decades before its retirement.

The destroyer, homeported at Naval Station Rota, Spain, was slated for decommissioning in 2026 at the end of its anticipated 35-year service life. With the extension, the ship will operate until fiscal year 2031, according to a March 14 news release from Naval Surface Force Atlantic.
