The public outcry in 1946 at the idea of sinking a number of ships at Bikini Atoll that (in the public mind) were still useful prompted the Navy to calculate the value of the sunken vessels as scrap metal. Their total? $3.7 million US. The cost of a new Zumwalt class destroyer in 2014? $3.5 billion US.
