The article focuses on the U.S. warship DD(X). The hull configuration observed for the DD(X), particularly forward, may be dandy for the comparatively low sea states of the littoral, where DD(X) is presumably going to be doing much of its business. The DD(X) hull, as portrayed, that must transit them would seem destined to be a virtual semi-submersible, with that sliver of a bow plunging downward into mighty swells and thence struggling back up to daylight as it sheds mountains of solid blue water.
