The USS Gerald R. Ford Hits The Open Waters

Huntington Ingalls Industries, America’s largest shipbuilding company, first started construction on the USS Gerald R. Ford in 2009. Now, eight years later, the new aircraft carrier is hitting the open waters for sea trials. The ship is the first in its class and first newly designed aircraft carrier in 40 years. The new, futuristic carrier promises more advanced technology that’ll help the Navy launch and recover aircraft at sea, detect enemies, and generate more power to support its new weapons, including directed energy lasers. Since they started construction, they faced several costly setbacks that pushed the cost to a total $13 billion.
