    Zumwalt is back in the barn, apparently as scheduled. The article is a whole of nothing as far as details, but at least she wasn't towed back to port.

    Three ships in class (current plan):

    USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000)
    PCU Michael Monsoor (DDG 1001)
    PCU Lyndon B. Johnson (DDG 1002)

    With USS Zumwalt named after Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt Jr., why is the ship not named USS Elmo R. Zumwalt, or USS Elmo Zumwalt?

    Seems odd.






































    Or maybe not...

    The Nimitz class carrier names follow exactly the same pattern, FWIW...

    The hulls are "PCU's" until they are commissioned, then they get their "USS" prefix; I was confused, too, when the LCS hulls were "PCU's" initially.
