Well, isn’t this just wonderful. Isn’t this just a thumbnail of our once-great Navy: “The USS Zumwalt Can’t Fire Its Guns Because the Ammo Is Too Expensive.”
Just three weeks after commissioning the USS Zumwalt, the U.S. Navy has admitted it is canceling ammunition specially developed for the ship’s high-tech gun systems because the rounds are too expensive. The guns, tailor made for the destroyer, will be unable to fire until the Navy chooses a cheaper replacement round.
Is anyone in charge over there? Who missed that?
