    The Zumwalt is a Destroyer NOT a Battleship.

    That is correct. While she is a warship, she is not a battleship.

    Amazing how the Pentagon/US Goverment emphasis that we need such weapon and yet we can not invest 4 billion dollars in our : roads, bridges, train stations, waterways, education, for better public good and our citizens....this is why I cringed as a business owner every time I have to pay my quarterly taxes...I do not mind pay taxes, but this is what I hate, we already have enough sophisticated weapons out there...this is just another toy that the Navy wanted and got.

    The ship generated many jobs in Maine where it was built and California where it will be home ported.
