The newly christened ship looks as space-age as it performs.
The USS Zumwalt is a collection of angles topped by what looks like the conning tower of a submarine. That design will make it no larger than a fishing boat on radar, allowing for more stealth operations.
The Associated Press reports three of the boats were ordered at a cost of $3 billion each. That cash will bringf along with it a world of high tech features.
The vessels are 610-foot-long, and are equipped with the technology to find submarines and uncover minefields all while driven by the fleet's first electric propulsion.
The power plant also means the boats will be armed with an electromagnetic rail gun.
Sea tests for the weapon are scheduled to begin in 2016.
Another big advancement for the Navy is cost savings.
The ships are so advanced they can be operated by around 130 sailors. The smaller Arleigh Burke class destroyers require crews of over 200 to operate.
Paul Szoldra of Business Insider calls the boats "a Swiss-army knife for missions of the future."
