    Guided-Missile Cruiser (Nuclear Powered) Long Beach class

    A single ship class, Long Beach was the first nuclear-powered surface warship and the last of US Navy traditional cruiser hulls (all subsequent cruisers were mostly scaled-up destroyer hulls). The ship received multiple reffits including the replacement of the 5in guns per Tomahawks and Harpoon launchers. The SAM capabilities were also upgraded to allow using the Standard missile.
