Lockheed Martin Developing New, Larger VLS For DDG(X)

Recommended Posts

Lockheed Martin is developing a brand new Vertical Launching System (VLS) for the U.S. Navy’s Next-Generation Guided-Missile Destroyer program, also known as DDG(X). A company official revealed the preliminary details of the VLS to Naval News during an interview at Sea Air Space 2023 (SAS 2023). 

The new VLS is called Growth-VLS (G-VLS), a completely new and separate VLS from Lockheed Martin’s Mk.41 series of launchers. As this is a relatively new development by Lockheed Martin, Naval News could not obtain photos or concepts of the launcher.
