USS Zumwalt

Recommended Posts


Very interesting Fubar,

 

A new generation warship... "à la Jules Verne"!

 

Another concept... around 1860-70.

And the future project "Frégate de Taille Intermédiaire"... if France can afford it!

 

The FTI programme in order to replace the "La Fayette" light warships.

Destroyers sure have come a long way. Trying to picture the Zumwalt engaging in a Red Storm Rising style engagement against 180+ cruise missiles.

If we still can call this a destroyer, two 155mm, heavier than a Ticonderoga and larger than the Virginia CGNs. This class remember me the Truxtun cruiser, designated for a time as DDGN, then getting back its CGN status.
