[QUOTE=Lee Shore;187528]“The U.S. Navy’s newest aircraft carrier isn’t ready for warfare. The $12.9 billion USS Gerald R. Ford — the most expensive warship ever built — may struggle to launch and recover aircraft, mount a defense and move munitions, according to the Pentagon’s top weapons tester.”[/QUOTE]
That’s what you get with the lowest bidder on a government contract.
Should’ve stuck with Northrop Grumman
The first carrier to use impulse magnetic rails to launch catapults. Instead of good old steam and hydraulics… getting way too cute for themselves…
Hopefully, when it is finally ready, it will work in hot and cold water unlike the new frigates in The UK that don’t like the heat. LOL
Just like Obamacare - hastily dreamed up, poorly thought through, and still not working. With government, the bigger it is- the harder it fails!
Should have subcontracted it to China, they would have knocked out something that didn’t work in half the time. And at half the cost!
