US Navy to commission DDG 1001

25th January 2019 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The US Navy is set to commission its second Zumwalt-class destroyer, USS Michael Monsoor (DDG-1001), at Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego, California, on 26 January.

The future USS Michael Monsoor’s vertical launche system (VLS) features larger cells, allowing this class to fire larger and more advanced land and anti-ship missiles in the future.

The Zumwalt-class has a larger flight deck that can accommodate two MH-60R helicopters and multiple UAS to perform a wide range of surface, air and undersea missions.

The fleet will be capable of performing a range of deterrence, power projection, sea control and C2 missions.
