DDG 1000 Zumwalt on Acceptance Trials

Bath Iron Works, General Dynamics’ ship-building unit, just released this awesome footage of the Navy’s new futuristic destroyer. USS Zumwalt (DDG-1000) is a guided missile destroyer of the United States Navy. She is the lead ship of the Zumwalt class and the first ship to be named for Admiral Elmo Zumwalt. Zumwalt has stealth capabilities, having a radar cross-section akin to a fishing boat despite her large size. On 7 December 2015, Zumwalt began its sea trial preparatory to joining the Pacific Fleet. She is to be homeported in San Diego, California.
