BAE Systems refits another Arleigh Burke-class destroyer
The USN Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer USS Mitscher (DDG 57) is to undergo a refit from March 2022 to April 2023.
The contract is initially worth $1.9 million but it could reach $101.2 million if all options are exercised,’ BAE Systems announced on 6 January.
Under the Docking Selected Restricted Availability (DRSA) contract, BAE Systems will place Mitscher in dry dock at its shipyard in Norfolk, Virginia; perform underwater hull preservation work; support USN efforts to upgrade C2 equipment and the Aegis combat system; and refurbish accommodation facilities for 285-strong crew.
BAE Systems is already performing DRSA work aboard USS Stout (DDG 55), another Flight I Arleigh Burke-class vessel, at its Norfolk shipyard.
