US Navy commissions most advanced stealth destroyer Zumwalt

US Navy commissions most advanced stealth destroyer Zumwalt
18 October 2016 Current Affairs: The US Navy has commissioned its largest, most expensive and technologically advanced destroyer, prompting a top admiral to say, "If Batman had a ship, it would be the USS Zumwalt". 

The Zumwalt, costing nearly USD 4.4 billion, is striking in appearance, with sharp angles and weaponry concealed behind flat surfaces, a design that makes it many times more difficult to spot on radar than conventional destroyers. 

The 610-foot-long ship, commissioned in Baltimore yesterday, also has an advanced power plant and weapon systems that can move the Navy into the future, said Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. 

The ship is named after Adm. Elmo R "Bud" Zumwalt, a Bronze Star winner from World War II who went on to serve in the Korean and Vietnam wars and as chief of naval operations from 1970 to 1974. 

A larger flight deck that enables operations with new F-35 fighters and MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft .

Larger vertical launch missile tubes that can fire larger and more advanced land attack and anti-ship missiles .

An electrical power system that generates almost as much electricity as the nuclear power plants on aircraft carriers. 

The ship can operate all of its systems and still generate enough electricity to power a small town .

It has the ability, with that extra power, to accommodate weapons of the future, such as electronic rail guns and laser.
