Developed under the DD(X) destroyer program, the USS Zumwalt is the lead ship of a class of next-generation multi-mission surface combatants tailored for land attack and littoral dominance with capabilities that defeat current and projected threats. It triples naval surface fires coverage as well as tripling capability against anti-ship cruise missiles. DDG 1000 has a 50-fold radar cross section reduction compared to the Arleigh Burke class destroyers, improves strike group defense 10-fold and has 10 times the operating area in shallow water regions against mines.
