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 CG 52 through CG 73 ships were equipped with the Mk 41 vertical launch system instead of Mk 26 ramps. CG 52 through CG 58 feature the SPY-1A radar system. The remaining ships feature the more capable SPY-1B radar system. Starting in 2004 the US Navy began decommissioning the early Ticonderoga-class cruisers from service and upgrading those ships (22) of the same class which were originally equipped with VLS in lieu of missile ramps. The US plans called for the extension of the cruisers fleet lifespan through 2045 but as of late 2019 the plans are to phase out the entire fleet by 2030.
