20th AEGIS Destroyer Launched

The newest Arleigh Burke class guided-missile destroyer, McCampbell (DDG 85), was launched on 2 July 2000, during a ceremony at Bath Iron Works, Bath, Maine (USA). DDG 85 is equipped with the Navy's modern Aegis combat weapons system, in which communications, radar and weapons technologies are combined in a single platform for mission flexibility.

The ship's aircraft handling and support facilities include dual aircraft hangers (port & starboard), a dual Recovery Assist, Securing and Traversing System, and associated machinery systems providing significant enhanced helicopter launch and recovery, command and control and maintenance/repair capabilities. She ship will be assigned two SH-60B Seahawk Undersea Warfare helicopters. The ship is 509.5 feet in length, and has a waterline beam of 59 feet. Four gas-turbine engines power the 9,195 ton ship to speeds in excess of 30 knots.
