Check out this awesome drone video of a US Navy destroyer cruising the Bosphorus Strait near Istanbul, Turkey, compliments of contributor and pilot gokhanakman.  The USS Ross is a guided-missile destroyer of the Arleigh Burke (DDG-71) class, of which about five dozen have been built.  Launched in 1996, the ship is just under 155 meters (just over 500 ft.) long, with a displacement of about 9k tons.  Powered by four gas turbines producing over 100k of shaft horsepower, the ship can cruise at 30 knots.
