Do you think they will restart that review in to carriers again that looks at possibly of limiting the Ford class to 4 and developing a fleet carrier design.Whats depressing is it pretty much says that there has been little movement in the last year. Weapons elevators don't seem to have progressed much in the last few months either (perhaps understandably with COVID). Think its been stuck at 6 working for a while..
I do believe the USN will eventually fix it and get it working (and they'd better do), but the odd thing is that all the recent public pronouncements seemed to have implied that the worst was behind them and that it was reaching an acceptable state. If the report is true its hard to trust any more pronouncements from the Navy regarding this. I know there is always a political angle of buying time for a fix to go in etc., and thats to be expected to a degree..... But the report really does clash with public statements to an unwise amount.
