27th February 2020 - 14:15 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) completed the second builder’s sea trials of the Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer Delbert D. Black (DDG 119).

The vessel spent 72h completing a range of tests in the Gulf of Mexico.

George Nungesser, DDG 51 programme manager at HII, said: ‘Our team will continue to prepare DDG 119 for the next set of trials and its future as a state-of-the-art [US] Navy destroyer.’

The company has delivered a total of 31 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers to the USN and it is in the process of completing a further four vessels. Construction of these ships began in May 2018.
