Description: The CG 47 Ticonderoga class cruisers were designed to perform anti-air warfare (AAW), anti-surface warfare (ASuW), and anti-ship warfare (ASW) supporting carrier strike groups, amphibious forces, or operating independently and as flagships of surface action groups. These ships can be armed with Tomahawk cruise missiles achieving a long range strike capability. The Ticonderoga-class cruisers were the first US Navy to be equipped with the AEGIS combat system. The SPY-1 radar and the Standard SM-2 missiles give to the Ticonderoga cruisers and unprecedented anti-air warfare capability, even against multiple airborne threats. Ticonderoga cruisers were employed for the first time during operation Desert Storm against Iraq. Since then, the Ticonderoga cruisers have been deployed in several conflicts demonstrating their capabilities as fleet escort and their land-attack capability using Tomahawk cruise missiles.

The first five Ticonderoga cruisers (CG 47 through CG 51) were equipped with 4 Mk 26 missile launcher ramps. They feature the SPY-1A radar system. On 3 August 2004, the USS Ticonderoga returned to its homeport at Naval Station Pascagoula after completing its final and most successful deployment. The ship was decommissioned on 30 September 2004 after 21 years since she was commissioned. The second Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser, named USS Yorktown, was decommissioned at Naval Station Pascagoula on December 3, 2004, after more than 20 years of service. The third cruiser, USS Vincennes (CG 49), was decommissioned on 29 June 2005 at Naval Base San Diego, California.
