New destroyer in the U.S.Navy

How incredible. It will enter the U.S.Navy today as USS Zumwalt, and is just amazing. Sure - it has a spectacular pricetag at $3billion, but must be the pride of the fleet.
Well done the U.S.Navy.

Re: New destroyer in the U.S.Navy

looks like it might have arrived just in time with Russia (Putin) calling its people back to the mother land.....

The shape somehow reminds me of a throwback to the Merrimack

Re: New destroyer in the U.S.Navy

More like the CSS Albemarle sunk in the 1860s
I wonder what the radar signature would be without that smoke stack ?
