This is my Arleigh Burke class Guided Missile Destroyer, representing the Flight I ship USS John Paul Jones. My model is 22 studs long, about 1:950 scale, and took about an hour to build plus 2-3 hours of tinkering. The real ship is 505 x 66 feet in size, and weighs 8900 tons at full load.
The Arleigh Burke class DDGs are some of the most potent and versatile Destroyers ever created. Over 50 are in active USN service, every one of which outclasses any surface warfare opponent, barring Russia's Pyotyr Velikiy.
As a Flight I vessel, the John Paul Jones is armed with 1 5"/54 caliber automatic gun, 2 Phalanx CIWS, 8 RGM-84 Harpoon ASMs, 2 triple torpedo tubes, and 90 VLS cells. The VLS cells are the key to the versatility and power of the Ticonderoga class (from CG-52 Bunker Hill on) and the Burkes. These cells can carry any combination of RGM-109E Tomahawk cruise missiles, RIM-66M Standard SAMs, quadruple RIM-162 ESSM SAMs, or RUR-5 ASROC ASW rockets.
The Burke DDGs are also equipped with the AN/SPY-1D "Aegis" radar system, a great radar roughly similar in concept to the AESA radars being fielded in the most modern fighter jets.
