mk48 production was already stopped and restarted once before. Honestly I'm not remotely worried about the USN having enough of those; the PLAN would run out of ships and subs long before the US ran out of Mk48s with the current inventory. I'm hoping that a follow on is in the works; it seems to me the USN could benefit from something quieter.
I don't even think this is even stopping production (aside from a temporary gap), it's just moving production. I see SAIC just got orders for a bunch of Mk 48 components, so production is clearly still happening.
