Indeed, it is a repair thing! Burke DDGs have those stack caps removed frequently. It would be interesting, however, for a Flight I like Fitz to be upgraded with a few FlightIIA features!

The ship from what I can see seems to be still under reconstruction. If you notice in the photos all the vent lovers are missing. They may have remove the upper portion of the stacks to repair or replace parts within the structure.

Went back and looked at some older pics of Fitzgerald. You are correct!

I'm not sure the stacks were upgraded, inasmuch as the conical exhausts were simply removed, perhaps as part of the maintenance period - the photos in the article (and also on the Navy's own gallery site) are from during the ship's repairs, so there's the possibility that the cones will be added back on at the end.

Not sure how to post links, so hope this works! USS Fitzgerald is back in the water. Of note is the upgraded stacks with the shrouded exhausts like later Arleigh Burke class ships. Looks like some upgrades being incorporated into the repair work.

The two cranes were omitted and replaced by three additional cells each. The cells are arranged in groups of eight (8 x 8, 4 x 8 ).

Are there anybody to teach me how to change 90 cells VLS of burke class into 96 cells? The basic form was 32 + 64 = 96 , deduction 6? for 2 crane arm, but how the 96 cells were arranged? Is crane arm removed?

The lines on the lower yard arm are for the flags. The upper yard arm are antenna wires and you can clearly see that they go to the arms located on the forward and upper side of the bridge area.

In this photo you can see where the ones for the upper yardarms terminate: http://www.navy.mil/management/photodb/ ... 8-0167.JPG

In this one, you can see the lower yardarms terminate on the flag bags deck: http://www.navy.mil/management/photodb/ ... 7-0226.JPG

I'd look for more, but gotta run. Go to this site and just type in "ddg" and look for shots that might show you the flag deck and download the high-rez version: http://www.navy.mil/gallery_search_results.asp

does anybody has some clear pictures or a layout of the rigging for these ships? The attachments on top of the masts for the wires are easy to find, but how and where do these enter the hull?

Yep. She should have a serious deck gun on her (either a Mk45 Mod6 155mm/60 or Mk71 Mod2 8"/60), a SPQ-9B, SeaRAM aft controlling a pair of Millennium Guns (port and starboard) atop the super structure, and a Phalanx Block 1B forward. Add 8 a Harpoons amidships between the stacks.

This would be a worthy ship.

Just saw the pictures from her sea trials. Significant changes to top of aircraft hangar, eliminated port anchor, added new satcom dome to foreword superstructure. Is this the start of the “Technology Insertion” flight I wonder?

Does that mean you agree, or disagree with my suggestion?

It looks very similar to the new additions to the Canadian Halifax Class Frigates.

Elisra NS-9003A-V2 -V2/U ESM, DF - Israel
An integrated naval ESM/ECM suite which receives and identifies over-the-horizon signals and uses the Multi Beam Array Transmitter system to counter threats. performs Instantaneous frequency and DF measurements. Can be fully integrated with other on-board systems, chaff/flare launchers, hard kill weapons, fire control systems, radars and navigation systems.

Unfortunately I also do not know for what this antenna is. But I have recently (January 2017) some ships of the class with it and other without, e.g. USS Higgins and USS Russel:

USS Sterett and ? with:

USS Dewey without:

USS Spruance without:

USS Decatur without:

USS Howard with:

Obviously there is no link to the batch of the class.
