That stealth is just bullshit. Russian radar can easily pick that one up.

Just an other example of wasting taxpayers money so that the US Military Industrial complex can enrich itself.

10 Mind-Blowing Facts About US Navy's New 'Batman' Destroyer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyOibz0QkTM

Oct 18, 2016 geobeats

Here are 10 extraordinary facts about the USS Zumwalt.

The US Navy recently commissioned the USS Zumwalt or as some call it the 'Batman' ship, the first of three super stealthy guided missile destroyers designed to aid in land battles. Here are 10 fascinating facts about the United Statesí latest water borne innovation.

Number 10. Itís enormous. The ship measures roughly 600 feet in length and weighs in at more than 14,000 tons.

Number 9. On radar, it looks like a fishing boat. Thanks to it unique shape and careful interior arrangement of typically telltale battleship equipment, people on the lookout for gargantuan military vessels will, literally, never see it coming.

Number 8. The ship is aircraft friendly. Among those it is likely to house are Seahawk helicopters and Fire Scout UAVs.

Number 7. Zumwaltís gas turbine engine system packs some serious power. A single unit produces enough juice to light 780,000 100-watt bulbs, and the system is capable of keeping 47,000 homes up and running.

Number 6. The captainís name may cause confusion among some. The individual charged with commanding the Zumwalt is none other than Captain James Kirk. He is said to take the Star Trek-related questions often directed his way in stride.

Number 5. Zumwalt carries a substantial arsenal. The ship has 80 bays for missiles, 2 advanced 155 millimeter gun systems, and 2 30mm Close In Guns. Itís also capable of shooting lasers.

Number 4. It runs with a relatively light crew. Typically, sailors on board will be limited to between roughly 150 and 175, which is modest for a ship of its size. As such, accommodations will be fairly generous, with even lower-ranking personnel being assigned to staterooms that house only 4. Plans also include a library and lounge areas.

Number 3. The ship is spacious enough to accommodate a forklift. One is used for bringing ammunition onto the ship and into an elevator that carries the rounds down to a well-concealed weapons station.

Number 2. Itís ready to help out a Navy SEAL team. Among the many extras stashed inside the ship are a few smaller boats, vessels that may come in very handy for the elite team.

Number 1. Itís really expensive. The estimated price hovers around $4 billion dollars. Those whoíd like to pick up a destroyer of their own need not be discouraged, as opportunity may someday arise. The Navy has been known to sell decommissioned vessels for a fraction of the original sticker price. What do you find most fascinating about the Zumwalt?
