: "The Navy is revamping the Zumwalt-class
: destroyer’s requirements and will morph it
: into a focused surface strike platform, the
: director of surface warfare (OPNAV N96) told
: USNI News today. The ships were originally
: designed to support embarked forces ashore
: with long-range gunfire with GPS-guided
: shells fired at fixed targets. The new
: emphasis on surface strike would make the
: stealthy ship more effective against other
: surface ships in blue water as well as
: closer to shore."
: My note: But only if the tugs have the range
: to get them there....
