Maybe they could start a museum and put them in with the 3 Zumwalt-class destroyers.

Total cost including development is $7.5 Billion per ship.

The gun will not have shells since each was going to cost between $800,000 to 1 million each. This leaves them unable to fulfill the naval gunfire support role it was designed for.

The 3rd one might get a railgun.

:mrgreen: Further to 'meaninglessness of LIF' & DoD 'Budgetting' 2020 according to some via following post - more details. :devil:


"...He [Capt. Philip Malone, the program manager for CVN 79, CVN 80 and CVN 81] also said JFK will receive modifications to operate the F-35C strike fighter after its post-shakedown availability. The modification involves changes in the squadron ready room and the flight deck’s jet-blast deflectors, among others. He said his office is evaluating the impact of the installations on the carrier’s schedule." https://seapowermagazine.org/navy-consi ... y-for-jfk/
