Here’s a great article on the progress of the future USS RAFAEL PERALTA discussing it’s recently completed ALPHA Trials. There are two trials still ahead — BRAVO TRIALS and CHARLIE TRIALS. Both are expected to be completed in 2016. The ship is anticipated to depart Bath, Maine in Spring 2017, arriving in San Diego in Summer 2017. Commissioning date is still TBD pending the completion of these trials, but it’s anticipated to be in mid to late summer 2017.
