ONLY THREE WILL BE IN SERVICE DUE TO COST OVER RUNS OF AT LEAST 50%. The Navy canceled a planned buy of the 2,000 rocket-assisted Lockheed Martin LRLAP rounds that were custom-designed for the AGS system that was set to be the heart of the Zumwalt class. However, the cost of each round rose to about $1 million and proved too costly for the service. In 2016 the Navy was moving toward modifying the Raytheon Excalibur guided 155mm artillery round to fill the space of the LRLAP, but the service has since scrapped those plans.
To my knowledge, the USN will use the three DDGs as a platform for support in amphibious landings. A complete waste of money. The USN will build more Arleigh Burke class DDGs
