SAN DIEGO (Tribune News Service) — With slick sides and sharp angles, the Michael Monsoor and its sister ship Zumwalt cut a distinct silhouette along the waters of San Diego.

Unlike a nearby aircraft carrier whose radar juts into the air, the Monsoor’s composite material deckhouse is polygonal and covered with material that can absorb radar waves and increase the destroyer’s stealth. Its “tumblehome” hull looks like something you’d see on a ship built before World War I. https://www.stripes.com/news/navy/navy-s-newest-destroyer-is-as-much-an-experiment-as-a-ship-killer-1.566144
