A $13 billion U.S. aircraft carrier is about to hit the open seas. It’s the USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78), the most expensive and most advanced warship ever built.
The Naval behemoth can house more than 4,500 people and weighs 90,000 tons. The CVN-78 is the lead ship in the Ford-class of aircraft carriers, replacing some of the U.S. Navy’s existing Nimitz-class carriers. The Ford-class introduces a series of technical innovations designed to improve carrier’s operating efficiency, and reduce operating costs and crew requirements. Let’s see if China and Iran can compete against this.
