The USS Arleigh Burke is the lead ship of the Flight I sub-class of these powerful guided missile destroyers. They are the US Navy's first destroyers built around the Aegis Combat System and the SPY-1D multi function phased array radar. The class is named after Admiral Arleigh Burke, the famous American destroyer officer of World War II, and later Chief of Naval Operations.
With an overall length of 155 m, displacement of 9,200 tons, and weaponry including over 90 missiles, the Arleigh Burke class are larger and more heavily armed than most previous ships classified as cruisers.
The class was scheduled to be replaced by Zumwalt class destroyers beginning in 2020 but an increasing threat from both long- and short-range missiles caused the US Navy to restart production of the Arleigh Burke class and consider placing littoral combat mission modules on the new ships.
