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.

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 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 ).

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.

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.

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

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.

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!
