Now that’s something you don’t see everyday
The future USS Zumwalt DDG 1000 returned from the at-sea portion of INSURV acceptance trials last Thursday after two days underway at sea.
She is breathtaking.
And, at 600-feet oal and 14,500-tons, this new breed of destroyer is the size of a WWI predreadnought or a WWII heavy cruiser.
And it shows.
She is set to commission 15 October and her first sistership, USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001), is scheduled to be christened on 18 June.
