Well, here’s an absolutely fascinating bit of Navy contract news.
“Huntington Ingalls Inc., Pascagoula, Mississippi, is being awarded a $12,511,359 cost-plus-award-fee contract modification to previously awarded contract N00024-12-C-4323 to provide long lead-time material procurement and planning yard services for CG-47-class cruisers and DD 963-class destroyers.“
The DD-963 class is the Spruance class and, as far as I know, they’ve all been converted to uni-directional diving submarines.
I don’t know if this is some kind of outdated cut and paste error or what. I know there’s waste and fraud in the Department of Defense but working on non-existent ships seems a bit over the top!
Do any of you have any idea what this is referring to?
