The Navy kicked off DDG(X) by establishing a new program office to oversee development, Defense News reports. The office will manage DDG(X)’s “design, technical data package development, construction, testing, fleet introduction and sustainment plans,” with an eye toward ordering the first ship in 2028. If everything stays on track, the first ship should enter Navy service around 2032.
The DDG(X) will also likely have a multi-purpose 5-inch gun and large silos capable of carrying the Navy’s new hypersonic-missiles. The ships will need standard-sized Mk. 41 silos for air defense-missiles, long-range anti-submarine rockets, cruise missiles, and anti-ship-missiles. The loss of the Ticonderoga class, with their 122 silos, means the next-generation ship will likely have at least 100 silos, and maybe more.
