US Navy scraps NINE warships – some under three years old – as $3.2bn fleet’s tech already obsolete

The US Navy will scrap nine warships worth $3.2 billion – despite some being just three years old – because their technology is already obsolete. 

Anti-submarine systems on the Freedom-class combat warships, four of which were commissioned in 2019 and 2020, ‘did not work out technically’, the Navy’s operations chief said.

Admiral Michael Gilday asked Congress to sign off on the scrapping, which will save the Navy $391 million.
