US Navy will Scrap Amphibious Assault Ship that was destroyed from July Fire

US Navy decided not to rebuild and refurbished the assault ship USS Bonhomme Richard that was destroyed after a fire as it will cost $3.2 billion and taken within five and seven years.

Another option the US Navy considered, which was turning the 41,000-ton Bonhomme Richard into a hospital ship, would have cost $1 billion but taken the same amount of time

The final decision is that the ship will be decommissioned and it will cost $30 million.

“We did not come to this decision lightly, Following an extensive material assessment in which various courses of action were considered and evaluated, we came to the conclusion that it is not fiscally responsible to restore her.”

“Although it saddens me that it is not cost-effective to bring her back, I know this ship’s legacy will continue to live on through the brave men and women who fought so hard to save her,” Secretary of the Navy Kenneth Braithwaite told the Times of San Diego.
