USS Zumwalt, cea mai noua si mai avansata tehnologic nava de lupta a US Navy, s-a alaturat oficial flotei in cadrul unei ceremonii care a avut loc in Baltimore.

Cap de serie a unei clase dintr-o noua generatie de distrugatoare multirol, Zumwalt dispune de un sistem de propulsie electric de ultima generatie, de o coca proiectata special pentru randament maxim la spargerea valurilor, un design stealth si de ultimele tehnologii de lupta si arme disponibile la acest moment.

Prezent la ceremonia de la Baltimore, secretarul Marinei, Hon. Ray Mabus, a declarat:

“This ship is an example of a larger initiative to increase operational stability and give the U.S. a strategic advantace. Our Navy and our Marine Corps, uniquely, provide presence – around the globe, around the clock – ensuring stability, reassuring allies, dettering adversaries, and providing the nation’s leaders with options in times of crisis.”

USS Zumwalt este prima nava de razboi a Marinei SUA care utilizeaza un sistem integrat care produce suficienta putere pentru functionarea sistemelor din prezent, precum si pentru cea necesara pentru armele, calculatorele si sistemele de senzori care vor veni in viitor.

Zumwalt genereaza aproximativ o putere de 78 megawati, aproape la fel de mult precum un portavion nuclear. Ceea ce ofera posibilitatea  suplimentara de utilizare a unor arme cum ar fi tunul electromagnetic la care se lucreaza in prezent.

“Today’s ceremony marked the culmination of over three years of dedication and hard work by some of the fines Sailors I have had the pleasure to lead.” a declarat Capt. James A. Kirk, comandantul distrugatorului Zumwalt. “The only thing more impressive than the capabilities of this ship are the capabilities of its fine crew.”

Secretarul Marinei, a adaugat:

“This destroyer, like the others in our fleet, is capable of projecting power, no doubt. The Zumwalt-class is much larger than today’s destroyers with a considerably larger flight deck – enough space to operate host Joint Strike Fighters, MV-22 Ospreys, and unmanned systems and a Vertical Launch System second to none.”

Ceremonia de intrare in serviciu a distrugatorului DDG 1000 – USS Zumwalt:

Amiralul John Richardson, Seful Operatiilor Navale, a vorbit de asemenea in cadrul ceremoniei:

“Admiral Zumwalt, especially during his time as CNO (Chier of Naval Operations), ensured that our institution lived by its values.” “He was  the “Sailor’s Admiral”, looking  at new ideas, acting to the limit of his authorities, and adjusting along the way to make his Navy ready for combat – but also with full cognizance of the impact on the Sailor that made up that Navy.”

Distrugatorul Zumwalt va incepe calatoria catre San Diego, avand planificate cateva vizite in porturi dar si instalarea, testarea si evaluarea sistemelor de lupta, precum si integrarea operationala in cadrul Flotei.
