Navy Considering Extending USS Dwight D. Eisenhower Past 2027

Recommended Posts

The Navy is weighing if it will extend the life of USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) past its planned 2027 inactivation date, USNI News has learned.

While Ike is listed as departing the fleet just a year after USS Nimitz (CVN-68) as part the latest long-range shipbuilding plan, service officials are considering the viability of squeezing one more deployment out of the 46-year-old aircraft carrier before its planned inactivation, a defense official told USNI News.
