Well, this is embarrassing. The US Navy's newest destroyer is stuck in Panama for ten days (reportedly) undergoing repairs for another engine problem.
Supreme stealth at the expense of firepower versus extremely powerful, but antiquated, weaponry. Place your bets.
The Navy officially took delivery of its very first Zumwalt-class destroyer, and is now ready to begin certifications for the ship's nearly 150 sailors.
The USS Zumwalt is so stealthy there's genuine concerns that civilian vessels won't be able to pick it up on radar in bad weather or at night.
The US Navy's newest and biggest toy is the imposing Zumwalt-class guided-missile destroyer, a svelte, stealthy entry designed to complement the Navy's large fleet of Arleigh Burke-class DDGs.
