This up-to-date electronic book on CD-ROM has comprehensive coverage of the U.S. Navy's fleet of Ticonderoga-class cruisers, with extensive photo galleries. In addition, it has historic material about America's battleships. This extraordinary, encyclopedic collection contains more than 9,000 pages reproduced in Adobe Acrobat PDF files. CRUISERS (CG) - Large combat vessel with multiple target response capability. Modern U.S. Navy guided missile cruisers perform primarily in a Battle Force role. These ships are multi-mission [Air Warfare (AW), Undersea Warfare (USW), and Surface Warfare (SUW) surface combatants capable of supporting carrier battle groups, amphibious forces, or of operating independently and as flagships of surface action groups. Cruisers are equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles giving them additional long range strike mission capability. Technological advances in the Standard Missile coupled with the AEGIS combat system in the Ticonderoga class cruisers have increased the AAW capability of surface combatants to pinpoint accuracy from wave-top to zenith. The addition of Tomahawk in the CG-47 has vastly complicated unit target planning for any potential enemy and returned an offensive strike role to the surface forces that seemed to have been lost to air power at Pearl Harbor. The lead ship of the class, USS Ticonderoga (CG 47) through CG-51 have been decommissioned. BATTLESHIPS - Illustrated histories of these remarkable vessels from the first true American battleship, the USS Texas, through the decommissioning of the last battleship on active duty, the USS Missouri, in 1992. Complete list of all the battleships that served with the Navy - ship names, dates of commissioning and decommissioning, eventual fate.
