Infobox question[edit]

Shouldnt the Class Name in the infobox be simply Ticonderoga and not Battle of Ticonderoga? I've changed it(tough retaining the link to the battle so people can see where the name come from) Abel29a 03:23, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

Regarding the Class Overview table, the name of the ship-class is listed at the top. The "Class name" field illustrates what the class's name is derived from. For other examples of the Class Overview succession box in use, see Iowa class battleship, Providence class cruiser, etc. --Kralizec! (talk) 06:23, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
AH I see - sorry - I'll leave well alone from now on..... Abel29a 21:57, 2 June 2006 (UTC)

Shouldn't there be a reference to the replacement USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) class of ships?[edit]

Here's a quote from USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51):

"The Arleigh Burke's designers incorporated many lessons learned by the Royal Navy during the Falklands campaign and from the USS Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruisers. The Ticonderoga-class cruisers were supposedly becoming too expensive to continue building, and were supposedly too difficult to upgrade. The Arleigh Burke's design includes what is now better known as stealth technology, which improve the ship's ability to evade and/or destroy anti-ship missiles. Furthermore, her all-steel construction provides good protection for her superstructure, while her Collective Protection System allows her to operate in environments contaminated by chemical, biological, or radiological materials."

The Burkes were not seen as replacement ships for this class. Intothatdarkness (talk) 14:38, 24 May 2012 (UTC)

Ticonderoga has 128 cell[edit]

61 cell launcher on USS Normandy. Please note the 3 cell strikedown crane.
A photo of the strikedown crane on USS Hopper, a DDG, but similar to the crane on the cruisers.

Ticonderoga has 16 Mk. 41 VLS with 8 cell. 8x16 is 128. With number of cells are problem in all Wikipedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:39, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

I don't mean to be difficult here, but you are flat out wrong. There is a 3 cell strikedown crane on early models of the Mk-41 VLS. I will allow that perhaps some cruisers may have been modified, but I know that as built they all had 2x 61 cell launchers each. --Dual Freq (talk) 00:33, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
