Arleigh Burke-class Destroyer Delbert D. Black has departed from Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Ingalls Shipbuilding division, sailing to its homeport in Mayport, Florida. The construction of the new Aegis destroyer has been completed recently. Ingalls has delivered 32 destroyers to the US Navy and currently has four more under construction. Arleigh Burke-class destroyers are highly capable, multi-mission ships and can conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power projection, all in support of the United States military strategy. Guided missile destroyers are capable of simultaneously fighting air, surface and subsurface battles. The ship contains myriad offensive and defensive weapons designed to support maritime defence needs well into the 21st century.
