The lead guided missile destroyer in the Zumwalt class will carry the designation and hull number DDG 1000. Developed under the DD(X) destroyer program, Zumwalt is the lead ship of a class of next-generation multi-mission surface combatants tailored for land attack and littoral dominance. It has a 50-fold radar cross section reduction compared to current destroyers, improves strike group defense 10-fold and has 10 times the operating area in shallow water regions against mines. Under the Navy's dual lead ship acquisition strategy, Northrop Grumman Ship Systems and General Dynamics Bath Iron Works will concurrently build the dual lead ships. Zumwalt will be delivered in 2012. Raytheon Image
