DDG-1000 Zumwalt class - Latest images

Postby krnl » 16 Oct 2013, 12:48

The destroyer Zumwalt is one of the most strikingly different warships ever built, in any age. Angular and stealthy, the ship’s lines are almost as different from other destroyers as the Monitor and Virginia/Merrimac were from the sailing ships of their era. In some ways, the Zumwalt’s silhouette actually harkens back to Confederate-built Civil War-era ironclads, as well as the North’s Dunderberg.

The Zumwalt’s formal christening party scheduled for Oct. 19 has been postponed due to the government shutdown, but the shipbuilders up at Bath Iron Works continue to ready the ship for launching, likely to take place before the month is out.

These images were released Oct. 15 and 16. All photos courtesy US Navy/General Dynamics Bath Iron Works.
