Megadestroyer Zumwalt Delivered to the Navy After Years of Setbacks

The Navy has accepted delivery of a next-generation stealth destroyer more than three years after its commissioning, the service announced Friday.

The destroyer Zumwalt has a working combat system and will move onto a new phase of developmental and sea testing, according to a news release from Naval Sea Systems Command. The ship was commissioned in 2016 and broke down a month later while passing through the Panama Canal.

The $4 billion ship has since faced other delays and cost overruns.
