    In this video we explore why over 90% of the Zumwalt class destroyers were cancelled. We bet you know why right off the bat, but we dig deeper and explore what led to the cost overruns.

Americans are having more important question to think through: what if after heavy and victorious fight on zumwald ships (also) it will appear, that they were fighting for the interest tiny minority of aliens, who have turned all the citizens into zombi status and murdered by "depopulation" or vaccination some 90% of population? Just for their fun and satisfaction, that they can to do everything, like God? Stary

What killed the Zumwalt Destroyers was Russian Migs disabling the Zumwalts with EMPs in the Mediterranean Sea. Now go watch them videos from 5 years ago.

This is ridiculous, for the hype and money they put in these ships, well rebuilding the U.S. Monitor and the C.S.S. Virginia into a hybrid, more floating capable, more modern design could have worked better?.

The problem was the US Navy for a period of time, decided to go with an Revolutionary approach to its warship building rather than Evolutionary. The Zumwalts no doubt are technical marvels, but they weren't the ships the US Navy really needed, and proof of this is that they have gone back to building the excellent, all round class the Arleigh Burkes.

Of course they got more expensive as they reduced the number of ships being procured - the fewer ships, the less number to spread costs over.

The Littoral Combat Shp. "Land Attack" These ships were intended for rushing into shore to pick up shipments of stolen high-value goods from corporations in the country - like computers destined for desks at organisations in the nation are diverted to the nearest beach where one of these (and many other types of "land attack" or "amphibious support" ships with suspiciously easy mechanisms to drop doors onto the beach. These were never intended to drop troops - they're there so cars can drive onto the beach and onto those carriers to be taken back to the very large mountain-like ship with plenty of floors to put vehicles containing stolen goods on them. Yes this goes back further than WWI and WWII. The USA and UK are the only types of militaries with amphibious support ships that rival the size of aircraft carriers. Aircraft carriers. like Nimitz-class carriers. When they have all the planes on the deck, obviously that's not convenient. Why are they there? Because the plane floor is carrying trucks full of stolen goods. The back of the ship has a retractable system that extends to the beach so the ship can be driven on to without grounding it. The propellors are well back from the back of the ship to serve this purpose. The extractable boom has properties like - it can be driven onto safely by large cargo carrier lorries and sit there on the beach waiting for others to arrive as the ones driving on have reached the ship - i.e. it's like a road which can be mistaken for being submerged when necessary. Obviously these trips take place at night while the nuclear powered carrier can move in on almost any beach with precision to extend this roadway back sufficiently to mean the ship will remain afloat and not grounded while trucks can be driven on board in convoy. With military personnel on the ship using night vision goggles, on any misty, cloudy or moonless night, shipments of hundreds to a thousand vehicles can go missing from a country in under an hour. Usually these shipments are intended for delivery first thing in the morning, lorries loaded the night before by terrorists from the US navy dropped on shore at the port just a short while before. Or placed there months in advance to move around shipment times, and delay orders of machines like computers so they can all be diverted on this one night. Billions stolen in hours. The LCS, littoral combat ship is the same thing as the aircraft carrier, except smaller, easier to beach and quicker to respond. And less obvious to surveille. The military radar system sees the ship as slightly out to shore, and not actually at a dock, so the operators are disracted by the many 'support' ships which are really there to disguise the stealing and keep an exclusion zome away from the area so no-one can see what's going on onboard. They also use tactics such as rape gangs - stealing personnel from the ship going into town to cause havoc and a distraction for the police so no-one goes investigating what's going on on a nearby beach. This happens in nations outside of Europe because the EU and the US were engaged in constant self-manipuation in order to be the biggest stealers in command of the most stealers in the world. This is a situation that was exhibiting a high level of information about stealing on the news, and the Cabal of terrorist paedophiles - yes that sounds ridiculous until you realise what they're compulsive about and how threatening that is to families with chidlren - the Cabal of paedopihles were always there to cause disruption and competition, hiding the fact that somewhere in the system they were sliding in pieces of information to distract teams with false information to make payments directly to them rather than the CIA or MI5.

As much as I love new toys and safety for those in service... I think two things: A)Increased cost due to smaller order shouldn't be held against the project so detrimentally. I would rather make all projects start off on a smaller scale so expanding it generates more savings as things go well. That's true conservation of resources imo. B) If the disparities were at 80+% someone was making unfounded claims about development. Either in hopefullness or more likely expecting to get away with it for an expected amount. When things really did need more work they had already used up what should have been a reasonable buffer but for their bad faith claims. Sadly I doubt those contract bidders and Govermental supporters got put in the time out block. I'd be happy to be wrong though.
