Christening Of Navy's Final 'Stealth' Destroyer Scheduled For April

Mar 29, 2019

The christening of the Navy’s final "stealth" destroyer is scheduled for April 27 at Bath Iron Works.

The future U.S.S. Lyndon B. Johnson is one of three Zumwalt class high-tech guided missile destroyers, all built by Bath Iron Works. Cost of the destroyers has been a major concern for the Navy, which truncated production to only three ships. The Navy has reverted back to buying Arleigh Burke-class destroyers.
