September 2007
U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings;Sep2007, Vol. 133 Issue 9, p6
Conference Proceeding
The article presents comments of army personnel Bob A. Cabbert and commander Robert H. Downie on an article on the U.S. navy and its DDG-1000 by R.H. Smith. According to Smith's article, DDG-1000 have a tumble-home, whaleback design. Downie believes that Smith's comments are right on target. Downie says that the U.S. needs sufficient numbers of Captain Smith's ships that are good at many tasks and not only a handful of gold-plated warships, that are capable of meeting all threats.
