The article reports that the U.S. Navy's leadership has turned against the long-touted DDG-1000 program, which appears to be backing a move by several members of Congress to reopen the construction of destroyers of the Arleigh Burke class. DDG-1000 program originally aims to provide 32 destroyers at almost 15,000 tons full load. Accordingly, the Navy later reduced the DDG-1000 to seven ships, having only the explanation of higher-than-expected costs.
