The Navy has laid the keel for its first new, Flight III DDG 51 surface warfare destroyer armed with improved weapons, advanced sensors and new radar 35-times more sensitive than most current systems, changing attack and defensive options for the surface fleet.
The Flight III Destroyers will be able to see and destroy a much wider range of enemy targets at farther distances.
