    These ships will be used as the missile shield of any navy battlegroup. That should say how seriously bad-arse they are.

    Anyways, launching of the #1 most powerful destroyer in the world (not in size, but number of vertical launch cells and max missile payload / cell) equipped with 360 degrees non-moving radar on June 28, 2017. There is currently no USN warship made or planned that matches the firepower of the Chinese Type 055 DDG:

    P.S: Four of them were built in parallel and have reached similar stage of completion. They each will be launched in the coming days...

    USN warships still use the old-fashioned rotary radar system that spins its radar dish around to scan the surroundings:

    The radar mast of the Chinese Type 055 DDG has 360 degrees radar coverage without any moving parts:

    P.S: This is the destroyer China wants to mass produce, with 4 preparing for launch (or already) and at least 4 more planned, pretty soon the East and South China Seas will be swimming with these beasts...

    The Type 055 DDG can output more Watts than any USN warship to supply power to high energy weapons like railguns and lasers (it was designed to accommodate these weapons in mind in addition to regular cold-launched missiles).

    This is the ship that truly terrifies the navies of the West officially launched on June 28, 2017. What makes the Type 055 DDG particularly dangerous is China just doesn't want a few of these ships but dozens of them.

    World's best, the most sxxy, powerful and elegant so far...

    A few factual data (why the Type 055 DDG is the most powerful destroyer in the world):


    Size:

    PLAN Type 055 DDG: 12000t
    USN Zumwalt: 15000t


    Energy output (for railguns, lasers, etc.):


    PLAN Type 055 DDG: 113MW
    USN Zumwalt: 78MW


    Vertical missile launch cells:


    PLAN Type 055 DDG: 112-128 (each cell's xsection significantly larger than rest of world navies = more hitting power / missile)
    USN Zumwalt: 80
