The US Navy took delivery of the guided missile destroyer Daniel Inouye from General Dynamics Bath Iron Works on Monday, March 8.

Prior to delivery, the ship successfully conducted a series of at-sea and pier-side trials to demonstrate its material and operational readiness.

The future USS Daniel Inouye is an Arleigh Burke-class Flight IIA destroyer equipped with improved integrated air and missile defence capabilities and radar upgrades that improve detection range and reaction time against modern air warfare and ballistic missile defence threats.
