The future USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) has departed departed Bath Iron Works to set sail for the first time, conducting at-sea tests and trials in the Atlantic Ocean, Dec. 7.

A video of the ship underway is available here.

The Navy said the newly built multimission ship will provide independent forward presence and deterrence, support special operations forces, and operate as an integral part of joint and combined expeditionary forces.

DDG 1000 is the leading guided missile destroyer of the U.S. Navy's Zumwalt class.

A $1.4 billion contract was awarded to General Dynamics in 2008 for the construction of Zumwalt at Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine, with production officially commencing in February 2009.
