As the U.S. Military tightens its budget, Ingalls Shipbuilding officially starts the construction of a billion dollar navy ship. It is an amphibious transport dock ship. It will be named John P. Murtha Ship LPD 26, after the U.S. Pennsylvania Representative John P. Murtha. The Navy warship is expected to be in service in about two and a half years.
A ceremony for keel authentication was held at the Ingalls shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Pride and patriotism soars high as shipbuilder Wilfred Bolds, Jr. carved his initials in the keel plate.
“It is a bit overwhelming to sit back and think of what it means,” Bolds said. “It means my name is now attached to a warship, a ship that is going to go into battle and will provide housing to many of our soldiers.”
Ingalls President Irwin Edenzon keeps
a positive outlook, despite the military budget cuts.
“I think the nation is a bit concerned about what the future will bring. There are lots and lots of plans being talked about in Washington now and nobody is settled on a particular plan. We have a fairly good order book for the next couple of years, and we are up in Washington selling every day.”
Navy warship is an important part of military operations and the John P. Murtha Ship will the latest addition to its valiant fleet.

Enormous, futuristic and expensive – as what the Navy leaders of Maine, City of Bath, would describe their new technology-laden warship. The warship “Zumwalt” is currently being built in Bath Iron Works. The warships seen as one of Obama Administration’s Asia-Pacific strategy and is said to be a representation of the US Navy’s future.
The stealthy warship features a wave-piercing hull, composite deck house, electric drive propulsion, advanced sonar, missiles, and powerful guns that fire rocket-propelled warheads as far as 100 miles. The 600-foot-long warships are so big that the General Dynamics-owned shipyard spent $40 million to construct a 106-foot-tall building just to assemble the giant hull segments.
Originally, the Navy leaders planned to build 32 ships but then, it was reduced to 24 and then became 7. Eventually, the production of the costly warship was down to 3. Jay Korman, an industry analyst from The Avascent Group, said the warship uses so much new technology that Navy says it’s their “silver bullet” to threats and that the only problem is the cost.
The Zumwalt’s new technology will allow the warship to determine, defeat aggression of their opponents and to maintain operations in areas where an enemy seeks to deny access – both on the open ocean and in operations closer to shore, the Navy says. The Zumwalt and the other 2 warships to be built will be out on the ocean next year and will be delivered to the Navy around 2014.
