The US Navy will replace the touchscreen throttle and helm controls currently installed in its destroyers with mechanical ones, says USNI News. The move comes after the release of an accident report from the National Transportation Safety Board about a collision between the USS John S. McCain and a tanker ship in 2017, which cited the controls as a factor in the accident.
