US to christen new futuristic Zumwalt warship

Image released by the US Navy shows the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Barry launching a Tomahawk cruise missile, as it sails the Mediterranean Sea on March 29, 2011The US Navy on Saturday will christen the USS Zumwalt, the first of a new class of futuristic, costly destroyers — of which only three are to be built. The Zumwalt, named in honor of a former chief of naval operations, was planned as a multi-mission ship equipped with two long-range, high-powered guns. The US Navy currently has 62 Arleigh Burke-class destroyers, of which 25 are equipped with an anti-ballistic missile defense system. The USS Zumwalt will be followed only by the Michael Monsoor and the Lyndon Johnson, many fewer than the 24 Zumwalt-class destroyers the US Navy originally planned on.
