The second ship in the futuristic Zumwalt class of guided-missile destroyers arrived in San Diego on Saturday in preparation for its commissioning in January.
Zumwalt-class destroyers are armed with 80 missiles in vertical-launch tubes and two 155-caliber long-range guns. The USS Zumwalt, the first in the class, is already in San Diego.
The latest ship is named for a Navy SEAL and Long Beach native who died in Ramadi, Iraq, in 2006.
The third ship in the class, the future USS Lyndon B. Johnson, is set to be delivered to 2020.
