Navy Stealth Destroyer Ready for New Sea Trials


The Bangor Daily News reports that the USS Zumwalt “stealth destroyer”, the first in a 3-vessel line, will leave Bath Iron Works for a second round of trials later this month.

The Zumwalt-class DDG 1000 completed its first round of sea trials in December before returning to the Bath, Maine, shipyard for repairs to one of the vessel’s 12 propulsion motor drives in mid-January. Delivery of the vessel to the Navy is scheduled for April, 2016.
