The USS Zumwalt DDG-1000 guided-missile destroyer is the largest and heaviest stealth destroyer in the US Navy, which appears as a “fishing boat” on radars.

The Zumwalt destroyer is considered an army by itself, as it can carry 132 Rim-162 surface-to-air missiles, or 80 “Tomahawk” surface-to-surface missiles, with a length of 195 meters and a water displacement rate of about 15,000 tons.

However, its strength lies in its high electronic warfare capabilities, jamming, and espionage, and it is considered the most powerful in the world in this respect.

There were plans to build 32 destroyers for the US Navy, but due to its high cost, only 3 destroyers were made, as the value of each destroyer is estimated at $4.5 billion.
