World’s 1st Carrier-Based UAV, US Navy Announces Return Of USS George Washington To Japan To Replace Ronald Reagan

Recommended Posts

The George Washington will be deployed in Yokosuka for the second time. It was first forward-deployed to Japan in 2008 and became the first nuclear-powered carrier to do so. It served there for seven years until it was replaced by Ronald Reagan in 2015. 

The George Washington is amid a multiyear process of refueling and complex overhaul in Virginia, carried out once during a carrier’s 50-year lifespan and involves refueling its two nuclear reactors.
