Landing ship Bonhomme Richard will be incapacitated by the US Navy due to damage from a fire that broke out on it this summer.
This was reported in a press release issued by the US Navy.
“After careful consideration of the issue, the Navy decided to write off the USS Bonhomme Richard … in connection with significant damage received during the fire in July,” – said in the message.
The US military estimates that repairing a ship in San Diego could cost more than $ 3 billion and take five to seven years.
In this regard, the Navy concluded that the restoration of Bonhomme Richard was not advisable.
