Yea I know, we called those Robo cruisers too.
when I was on the Ike we had the Tico pull along side us to get some JP for her engines.

Awh, one of those Arleigh-Burke class destroyers, the USS O'Kane (DDG-77) was my baby! I precommed her, was there for her mast-stepping & launch from Bath, Maine.
Sailed her to her homeport: Pearl Harbor, HI.
We played wargames against a few other nations & sub fleet there. Good times!
It's interesting how a "surface target" can hide but she was fast & our skipper, tricky.

Looks normal on the outside, but from the reputation, it's gotta be beautiful. Actually, I heard about the Arleigh Burke, but was too lazy to search or do anything to find about it. Thanks for this useful post!

having had the honor of being a plankowner (ships company before the ship is comissioned) on the USS Momsen DDG 92 and now serving on the USS Halsey DDG 97, these Aegis destroyers are absolutely incredible in what they are capable of doing..

it's no wonder that they, or their idea have been copied by so many foreign navy's (Japan, and South Korea directly, with Norway, Spain, and Australia indirectly in making a frigate size Aegis warship)

The Burkes are fine ships, second to none as surface combatants.
