27th April 2020 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Huntington Ingalls Industries (HII) delivered its newest Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer, Delbert D Black (DDG 199) on 24 April.

The vessel and its documentation were passed over to the USN and it is expected to leave the HII shipyard in August 2020.

Four other DDGs are currently under construction at the site including Frank E Petersen Jr (DDG 121), Lenah H Sutcliffe Higbee (DDG 123), Jack H Lucas (DDG 125) and Ted Stevens (DDG 128).

On the same day, HII confirmed that it had been awarded a $107.9 million contract modification to exercise an option of the existing Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) Planning Yard contract.

The Planning Yard (pictured) provides post-delivery life-cycle support including fleet modernisation programme planning, design engineering and modelling, logistics support and maintenance services.
