Last of New Class of Navy Warships Departs Shipyard

Jan 15, 2022
BATH, Maine — The last of a new class of warships recently departed a Maine shipyard.

The USS Lyndon B. Johnson was constructed at Bath Iron Works and is the last in a class of three ships the U.S. Navy has described as the largest and most technologically sophisticated destroyers in its history.

The ship previously left for sea trials in late August. That was the first time it made it to the Atlantic Ocean.

The ship left for the trials 113 years to the day after Johnson was born. It was christened in 2019.
