Inside America’s Lethal New Stealth Destroyer

National Interest – The Navy is preparing to fire long-range precision guns and missiles from its lethal, stealthy new destroyer — in anticipation of its ultimate deployment on the open seas, service and industry officials explained. The new Destroyer, called DDG 1000 or the future USS Zumwalt, is a 610-foot land and surface warfare attack ship designed with a stealthy, wave-piercing “tumblehome” hull. On Friday May 20, the new ship was formally delivered to the Navy at Bath Iron Works in Portland, Maine.
