    It is a prototype and much still needs to be developed.

    The question is, how expensive will Kennedy, Enterprise and 004 be?

    you could've given some positive spin to the Ford like 'tremendous amount of data gathered', 'exciting challenge', 'great opportunity to learn', ... LOL

    by the way she's a "prototype" of how NOT to design/develop/procure in the future

    no positive spin inside

    The US Navy fixed the propulsion problems on its $13 billion supercarrier, but the ship still has serious issues https://www.navytimes.com/news/your...arrier-but-the-ship-still-has-serious-issues/

    either

    IT’s still installed in some Nimitz class carriers so they train for it. It takes time for the navy to rip the system out. Form your Own link.
    If the system is installed it’s still trained and qualified on even if it’s flawed.

    to me, the main point of https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zo...ning-to-use-unreliable-anti-torpedo-torpedoes
    seemed to be Sailors spending time on operating trash, t-r-a-s-h as in Anti-Torpedo Torpedo Defense Systems, instead of being able to rest (in between other tasks assigned to them)

    R09 PWLS IS LOOKING GOOD
    With the engines having been tested (again) earlier this week it’s clear that R09 Prince of Wales is making steady progress to be ready for her builders sea trials soon.
    Here she is earlier in 2019 with the local press now saying mid September is the date but there is no recent official update to corroborate this, and its likely to be them reiterating the long targeted start date rather than reality.
    The crew have yet to move on board which in itself is a sign that her Basin trials can begin with all relevant crew procedures for checking to systems are ready to go and the crew are fully up to speed for departure including some key emergency procedures.
    The day is certainly getting closer when the UK will have 2 “super carriers” at sea!! bSaW73z.jpg HMS QE PREPARES FOR WESTLANT19
    Taken on Sunday 11 Aug 19 HMS QE is seen berthed at PRJ Portsmouth with the flight deck still festooned with contractors equipment and tentage as preparations continue for her departure on WESTLANT19 and a transatlantic crossing to the US East Coast.
    No specific departure date is yet publicly available but she’s not likely to still be here by early September!
    Removal of the flight deck tentage (being used to update the F35B hover surfaces) will be a good indicator that her departure will not be far off! 67870255_10156276350811481_978088560106143744_n.jpg

    Better than no system at all. Until the system is removed they have to qualify on it. I doubt that training takes up everyday of their lives.
