US Navy’s Stealth Destroyer Departs From San Diego On First Operational Cruise

U.S.S. Zumwalt (DDG-1000), a 16,000-ton next generation guided-missile destroyer, left its San Diego homeport for its first “operational period at sea,” the U.S. Navy said in a March 8 statement.

The Navy said the milestone demonstrates the service's commitment to advancing the lethality of stealth warships through cutting-edge technologies in combat systems, weapons, and engineering plant.

“Zumwalt is designed for stealth,” said Capt. Andrew Carlson, the ship's commanding officer.

“This aids her role as a multi-mission surface combatant and improves the fleet commander’s options for delivery of naval combat power to meet the Navy’s emergent mission requirements.”
