What Was the Point of Building the Zumwalt Destroyer?

These stealth ships need to be revised and the Navy needs to finally decide what to do with them.
by Sebastien Roblin

Key point: These ships cost too much and cannot do what they were promised they could. Can they find a new purpose?

In January 2019, the Navy will commission its second hi-tech Zumwalt-class stealth destroyer, the USS Michael Monsoor. The third and last, USS Lyndon B. Johnson was launched this December 2018 and will be commissioned in 2022.
