The Navy's new destroyer passed a round of sea trials in which it sailed through two storms off California and Alaska, moving it into the next phase of testing, set to take place in March, 2021.
The stealth destroyer Zumwalt passed sea trials that put its unique design to the test in waves up to 20 feet high, Naval Sea Systems Command announced this week. The tests took place during two storms, which officials said exceeded expectations in terms of testing the ship's mettle in heavy seas.
Now, a scale-model replica of Zumwalt will repeat similar conditions in what's known as the Navy's‘indoor ocean’–a massive pool in Bethesda, Maryland, that holds more than 12 million gallons of water and mimics real wave patterns.
