The Surface Fleet, ASW and Defeating Hyper-Sonic Cruise Missiles: The Case of the Zumwalt Class
03/08/2019

By Ed Timperlake

The US Navy and the surface fleet is very much engaged in our strategic and tactical thinking about how to defend against the emerging Hyper-Sonic Cruise Missile threat.

Of course, the best way to stop a HSCM is to sink the enemy sub before it has a chance to fire. 

A new player which could play a key role in a kill web approach could be the new Zumwalt class destroyer.  There are three ships in this class, but rethinking the key role it could play in a kill web approach to the HSCM and other threats might lead to a rethink.
