Warships are usually one of the main components of any Navy. Powerful countries such as the United States of America, Russia, China and the NATO Alliance maintain a powerful navy so as to project power far from their shores. These warships are usually armed with missiles that can strike targets located very far away with great accuracy.
Recently, a US Navy guided missile destroyer was spotted leaving the coastal city of San Diego. This is according to a social media statement that read, "USS Micheal Monsoor, a Zumwalt-class guided missile destroyer spotted leaving San Diego."
The statement was then followed by a video showing the USS Micheal Monsoor leaving San Diego while skyscrappers appear in the background.
USS Micheal Monsoor is the second ship of the three-ship Zumwalt-class of guided missile destroyers. The Zumwalt-class destroyer is a class of three United States Navy guided missile destroyers designed as multi-mission stealth ships with a focus on land attacks.
The cost per ship including research and development is $7.5 billion.
