Description Extended Information
Hobby Master HSP1001 US Navy Ticonderoga Class Guided Missile Cruiser - USS Ticonderoga (CG-47) (1:700 Scale) "Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead!"
- Admiral Farragut sailing aboard his flagsphip Hartford while entering Mobile Bay, Alabama, August 23, 1864

USS Ticonderoga (DDG/CG-47), fifth to bear the name, was a guided-missile cruiser, homeported in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The "Tico" was the lead ship of her class. The United States Navy built the first Aegis cruisers using the hull and machinery designs of Spruance-class destroyers. Ticonderoga was ordered as a guided missile destroyer, but redesignated as a cruiser before she was laid down.

The contract to build DDG-47 Ticonderoga was awarded to Ingalls Shipbuilding on September 22nd, 1978. On January 1st, 1980, she was redesignated as a guided missile cruiser, CG-47. Her keel was laid down on January 21st, 1980, and launched April 25th, 1981. She was delivered on December 13th, 1982, and commissioned on January 22nd, 1983, with First Lady Nancy Reagan, the ship's main sponsor, having the honor of christening the ship May 16th, 1981. She completed her final deployment on August 3rd, 2004, and was decommissioned on September 30th of that year. After her decommissioning, she was towed to the Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility in Philadelphia, with no decided fate.

Historical Account: "Defending the Fleet" - The Aegis Combat System on the Ticonderoga class guided missile cruiser is an integrated naval weapons system developed by the Missile and Surface Radar Division of RCA, and now produced by Lockheed Martin. It uses powerful computer and radar technology to track and guide weapons to destroy enemy targets.

Initially used by the United States Navy, Aegis is now used also by the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force, Spanish Navy, Royal Norwegian Navy, and Republic of Korea Navy. Over 100 Aegis-equipped ships have been deployed in five navies worldwide. The Royal Australian Navy selected the Aegis system for placement on its new Air Warfare Destroyers, and it is part of NATO's European missile defense system.

The Aegis Combat System (ACS) is an advanced command and control (command and decision, or C&D, in Aegis parlance) and weapon control system (WCS) that uses powerful computers and radars to track and guide weapons to destroy enemy targets.

The ACS is composed of the Aegis Weapon System (AWS), the fast-reaction component of the Aegis Anti-Aircraft Warfare (AAW) capability, along with the Phalanx Close In Weapon System (CIWS), and the Mark 41 Vertical Launch System. Mk 41 VLS is available in different versions that vary in size and weight. There are three lengths: 209 in (5.3 m) for the self-defense version, 266 in (6.8 m) for the tactical version, and 303 in (7.7 m) for the strike version. The empty weight for an 8-cell module is 26,800 lb (12,200 kg) for the self-defense version, 29,800 lb (13,500 kg) for the tactical version, and 32,000 lb (15,000 kg) for the strike version, thus incorporating anti-submarine warfare (ASW) systems and Tomahawk Land Attack Cruise Missiles (TLAM). Shipboard torpedo and naval gunnery systems are also integrated.

Great Model and Great service September 25, 2018
Reviewer: J. Pujol from Woodside, NY United States  
Nice 1/700 Model of CG-47.  Nice detail.  I'm not a good model builder, so this is a nice, fully assembled model.  Hope they come out with a 1/700 DDG.
