    And the "Ticonderoga" class is slowly leaving the scene and of the 27 built, more than 50% have already been decommissioned.
    Last year, 5 cruisers were decommissioned, this year 4, and the plan is for 5 more for next year.
    Last year I wrote about cruisers of this class that were withdrawn from service, and this year the following cruisers also went to the eternal hunting grounds;

    * CG-52 Bunker Hill; decommissioned on September 22, 2023. Active for 37 years and two days.
    * CG-53 Mobile Bay; decommissioned on August 10, 2023. She was active for 36 years and 179 days.
    * CG-56 San Jacinto; decommissioned on Septmeber 15, 2023; She was active for 35 years and 235 days.
    * CG-57 Lake Champlain; decommissioned on September 1, 2023. She was active for 35 years and 20 days.

    13 "Ticonderogas" remain active until next year.
    Yes, the USA has 73 destroyers of the "Arleigh Burke" class, so they are not in a problem, but even that destroyer is a project that is almost 40 years old. On 3 April 1985, Bath Iron Works received a US$321.9 million contract to build the first of the class, USS Arleigh Burke. It's hard to put makeup on a grandma forever and expect her to remain desirable.

    These ships are very important to moving of U.S. military equipment overseas.

    U.S. operations have been delayed?
