I hope they do a better job than they dud with the KC-46.

"Shipbuilder Bath Iron Works has replaced one of the massive turbines on the future USS Michael Monsoor, and the stealthy destroyer is scheduled to depart for San Diego in November."

"Shipbuilders noticed an unusual vibration during sea trials and discovered afterward that a foreign object had damaged some of the blades, Lesko said. Although the turbine still worked, the Navy decided to replace it rather than repair the unit."
