Design features and systems
The Zumwalt-class destroyer represents what the US Navy describes as a next-generation destroyer technology for deployment in land attacks and anti-surface and anti-air missions.
Workers at General Dynamics' Bath Iron Works in Maine will continue working on the ship through the year. The timetable is to deliver the ship to the Navy in late 2014. The first Zumwalt is expected to be sailing the seas and fully operational sometime in 2016, the Navy said.
