…Cruise Missiles: The Case of the Zumwalt Class

"The US Navy and the surface fleet is very much engaged in our strategic and tactical thinking about how to defend against the emerging Hyper-Sonic Cruise Missile threat.

Of course, the best way to stop a HSCM is to sink the enemy sub before it has a chance to fire.

A new player which could play a key role in a kill web approach could be the new Zumwalt class destroyer. There are three ships in this class, but rethinking the key role it could play in a kill web approach to the HSCM and other threats might lead to a rethink…."

Best way to kill a sub is another sub. Just saying.

Best way to defeat the hypersonic missiles is to eliminate them before they can be launched.

I suspect we have more capability to do that than others do to us, at least currently.

Having the "will" to use that strength is the real trick though.
