from The Year in Defense
The new Zumwalt-class destroyer is described as an "electric ship." The next-generation carrier is more "electric" by far than any predecessor. Probably the same will be true of the coming cruiser. There has also been talk of electric (nuclear) submarines. What is happening, and why? What is so special about electric drive and electromagnetic catapults? And why is this happening right now?
