The Navy’s largest and costliest destroyer was sent out to sea Monday for final trials before its delivery to the military. The future USS Zumwalt features an angled hull that looks like a hybrid of something out of Soviet Russia and a James Bond movie.
Staff from Bath Iron Works, the Maine shipyard that built the destroyer, and Navy crew members will be on board during the trials for testing and to help prepare the ship for delivery. Once this round of trials is complete, the Navy will begin its own testing, determining the ship’s capabilities in different sea conditions, including extremely rough waters.
