About this product

Product Information

As the Cold War intensified, Soviet antiship missiles and jet aircraft posed an increasing threat to the viability of the US Navy's (USN) surface fleet. It was therefore essential to get air-defense missiles to sea as fast as possible, but early USN missiles and their electronics were large and cumbersome. The solution lay with guided missile cruisers. Initially these were conversions of redundant World War II cruisers, but a series of purpose-built guided missile cruisers soon followed, as well as a handful of expensive nuclear-powered cruisers, including USS Long Beach, the USN's largest-ever missile cruiser. The USN's 38 guided missile cruisers were the most capable and important surface combatants in the fleet throughout the Cold War. They served as carrier escorts and flagships, and saw combat from Vietnam to the Persian Gulf. This book explains the development, technology, and service of these ships, from the first primitive guided missile cruisers up to their replacement by the Aegis-equipped warships of today's US Navy.

I made an offer to the seller and he accepted. It was a good deal for the both of us. The Sahariana model was not all that well packed. Just loosely wrapped in bubble wrap and placed in a box with foam peanuts. The model arrived with a broken barrel, and the missing piece was not in the box with the model so I couldn't fix it. I communicated with the seller and sent a picture of the model with the broken barrel, and the seller refunded the full amount. That made me quite happy.
