"Her 5-in guns and Sea Sparrow missiles have all been landed; her armament is limited to two RAM launchers and two Phalanx close-in defensive guns. Remarkably she retains the dome of her SPQ-9 fire control radar, atop her lattice foremast. The two objects at the forward end of the island are GMS and aft of it, the WSC-6 satellite dish. A USC-38 satellite antenna occupies the small radome just forward of the RAM launcher. The larger of the two radomes on the lattice foremast is for a WSC-6 satellite antenna. The lower lattice structure carries an SPS-40 air search antenna. Just below and abaft of it is the box antenna of the SLQ-38 countermeasures set. A Tacan antenna (URN-25) is visible at the foremast. At its head, the mainmast carries the antenna of Mk 23 Target Acquisition System usually associated with NATO Sea Sparrow. Below it is the SPS-43 carrier controlled approach radar; the radome associated SPN-35A is visible abaft of the island. The big flat faced radar antenna is for the SPS-48E three-dimensional set. Below is the radome of a second USC-38. The antenna just forward of the mainmast is the SMQ-11A for receiving meteorological data. A,D. Baker"
