USS ANZIO (CG-68) Facts and Figures

The AEGIS Weapon system is the heart of ANZIO's awsome warfighting capability. The AEGIS system is an extensive integration of electronic detection, command and decision progeams, and engagement systems. ANZIO's weaponry and state of the art electronics truly distinguish her as a multi-mission warship able to simultaneously engage air, surface, and subsurface threats.

The AN/SPY-1B is the primary sensor of the AEGIS system. This computer controlled phased array radar eliminates the need for separate search and tracking radars by simultaneously performing both functions. The four fixed arrays of the SPY radar form small beams of electromagnetic energy, and steer them to provide near instaneous full radar coverage. It is capable of tracking hundreds of contacts.

ANZIO's layer anti-air capability centers around the MK 41 Vertical Launch System (VLS), a multiwarfare missile launching system capable of firing a variety of missiles against airborne and surface threats. Standard Missiles provide ANZIO anti-air defense out to long ranges. For closer air targets, ANZIO wields an air gun capability with its five inch guns. To complete its anti-air defenses the Phalanx weapon system delivers a lethal punch to close inbound missiles.

Ths ship's surface and subsurface weapons are extremely capable. Tomahawk and Harpoon cruise missiles provide stand-off strike capability while Standard Missiles and five inch guns handle short range engagements. For anti-submarine warfare, ANZIO is the first AEGIS cruiser to be equipped with the powerful AN/SQS-53C Hull mounted sonar. This system yogether with the AN/SQS-19 towed array, AN/SQQ-28 sonobuoy processor, and the LAMPS MK III weapon system form the most advanced sonar suite placed on a surface ship. ANZIO can deploy torpedos using its LAMPS MK III helicopter, MK 32 SVTT, or inorganic ASW aircraft assigned to ANZIO's control.

ANZIO's hard kill weapons are complimented by electronic warfare countermeasures, decoys and passive detection systems. She possess excellent aircraft control capabilities. Her superior command and control ability is augmented by a computer controlled radio center and an extensive display system. Four large screen displays enable the Commanding Officer and Tactical Action Officer to evaluate assets and hostile forces anywhere in the world and clearly display the battle picture. She is elegant, capable and BUILT TO FIGHT.
