Modern Warfare - America spent $7 billion of their money to develop the most sophisticated war ship that would increase their naval supremacy in the world. The DDG-1000 Zumwalt class is the first stealth destroyer launched by the US Navy, the destroyer carries a rail gun and of course it could launch surface to air missiles. The US Navy is expecting that by 2014 they could produce more stealthy war ships like DDG-1000 to cater the growing tension in South China Sea. China says it will only take a few fishing boats to blow up the DDG-1000.
"It would be a goner," Rear Adm. Zhang Zhaozhong of China's National Defense University tells the nation’s CCTV military channel.
Adm. Zhaozhong claims that the stealth destroyer impressive design could be easily besieged by a mere fleet of fishing boats that are laden with explosives. Its high-tech hull could be blown apart sending the boat straight to the bottom of the sea.
DDG-1000 has wave-piercing hull that would get rid of the noisy wave, its size is smaller than the usual size of a typical destroyer so who ever can see it they will misjudge it as a fishing vessel.
If America owns their first Stealth destroyer the Chinese have their own stealthy ship but this one is a mere missile launcher. They said it is China’s weapon for the small warships of the Philippines and Vietnam. The stealthy speedboat will be deployed in the East China Sea or the South China Sea, where Beijing has sovereignty disputes with neighboring countries.
