    Navy to Commission Destroyer Michael Monsoor

    Office of the Navy Chief of Information

    WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy will commission its newest destroyer, USS Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001), Saturday, Jan. 26 during a 10 a.m. (PST) ceremony at Naval Air Station North Island, San Diego, California, where the ship will be homeported.

    The second ship in the Zumwalt-class of destroyers, DDG-1001 is named in honor of Medal of Honor recipient Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class (SEAL) Michael A. Monsoor, who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions in Ramadi, Iraq, Sept. 29, 2006.

    Scott Peters, U.S. Representative from California’s 52nd District, will deliver the commissioning ceremony's principal address. Sally Monsoor, Petty Officer Monsoor’s mother, will serve as the ship’s sponsor. The ceremony will be highlighted by a time-honored Navy tradition when Mrs. Monsoor gives the first order to “man our ship and bring her to life!”

    “USS Michael Monsoor is one of the most capable warfighting assets our nation has to offer,” said Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer. “This ship will provide independent forward presence and deterrence for decades to come and I am confident the crew will operate this vessel with the level of expertise, courage, and strength needed to overcome any challenge.”

    On Sept. 29, 2006, in Ramadi, Iraq, Monsoor was part of a sniper overwatch security position with two other SEALs and several Iraqi Army soldiers when an insurgent closed in and threw a fragmentation grenade into the position. The grenade hit Monsoor in the chest before falling to the ground. Positioned next to the single exit, Monsoor was the only one who could have escaped harm. Instead he dropped onto the grenade, smothering it to protect his teammates. The grenade detonated as he came down on top of it, inflicting a mortal wound. Monsoor’s actions saved the lives of his two teammates and the accompanying Iraqi soldiers. His Medal of Honor citation reads, “by his undaunted courage, fighting spirit and unwavering devotion to duty in the face of certain death, Petty Officer Monsoor gallantly gave his life for his country, thereby reflecting great credit upon himself and upholding the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.”

    The future USS Michael Monsoor includes new technologies and will serve as a multi-mission platform capable of operating as an integral part of naval, joint or combined maritime forces. The Zumwalt-class fields a considerably larger flight deck and has capacity for two MH-60R and three VTUAVs to execute a wider array of surface, aviation, and undersea missions that deliver more manpower, firepower, and computing power to the fight. The future USS Michael Monsoor’s Vertical Launch System (VLS) features cells physically larger than similar cells on today’s ships, allowing this class to fire larger and more advanced land and anti-ship missiles in the future.

    Type 055 is better. This ship has too much reflective surface. Too big radar signature. Look at the size of the bridge.

    Tell me how, it has a RCS of a fishing boat, tumblehull design is far better Stealth, with a semi stealth ( more conventional) design of Type-55 @undertakerwwefan ;):enjoy:

    Fishing boat is made of wood. Wood has way smaller radar signature than steel. No way Zumwalt has RCS of fishing boat.

    this beast is entirely made of carbon reinforced plastics and stealth shaping that's why it is so expensive @undertakerwwefan :crazy::crazy::crazy:

    Steel.

    USS Lyndon B. Johnson (DDG-1002), the third and last ship in the tiny fleet of ships, is under construction. It will feature a heavier and more radar reflective deckhouse and hangar deck made out of steel instead of composite materials—another cost-cutting measure. The decision could impact seakeeping as well as the ship's radar signature.

    Not really. Just ordinary shaping.

    There's nothing special about the shape. A 4 years old kid can draw a block like that.

    Type 055 looks way better.
