The US Navy’s newest destroyer broke down while transiting the Panama Canal, colliding with the Canal lock walls and forcing the $4 billion dollar ship to resort to a tow from a tugboat. The USS Zumwalt was towed to a former U.S. naval station in Panama where it will undergo emergency repairs. This is just months after a similar incident in September.
Yeah, yeah, I know. Every ship has a shake down cruise to iron out the bugs, but it”s not supposed to shake itself to pieces.
