Such an odd looking ship class. It feels like an old metal lunch box or maybe a giant dumbbell with square weights bolted onto a ship hull. I do prefer the look of the Arleigh Burke.

Still a pretty good workhorse class of ship.

Damn...

Hard to believe the Ticonderogas are actually reaching the end of their service lives.

Wild to think I was just barely out of high school when they came out.

Red Storm Rising was such great press for that ship.

That class cruiser was the mainstay of the fleet when I was in young as well. It served during the Cold War with great distinction. The class while odd in appearance, was the final transition phase in USN development of cruisers. 

The Arleigh Burke would be Ticonderoga's successor. And the lessons, innovations, and testing of Ticonderoga class paved the way.
