Navy CG(X) Cruiser Design Options: Background and Oversight Issues For Congress [December 20, 2006] [open pdf - 71KB]
From the Summary: "The Navy would like to use the design of its new DDG-1000 destroyer as the basis for its planned CG(X) cruiser. A CG(X) design based on the DDG-1000 might not be affordable to procure in the numbers the Navy desires. Basing the CG(X) on a smaller hull would produce a CG(X) design that was individually less capable but more affordable. In deciding on a design for the CG(X), policymakers may wish to weigh unit capability against unit affordability. This report will be updated as events warrant."
