USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) is a modern American missile destroyer, the keel of which was laid in 1988, launched in September 1989, and commissioned by the US Navy in 1991. The total length of the ship is 154 meters and 20 meters wide. Full displacement is around 8,800 tons, and the maximum speed is slightly above 30 knots. The destroyer is armed with: 2 VLS Mk. 41 - one 29-rail and one 61-rail, 2 quad Harpoon rocket launchers, a single 127mm Mark 45 cannon or two 20mm Vulcan Phalanx kits. The ship has a helipad, eg Sikorsky MH-60R.

USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51) is the first of 62 built destroyers belonging to the class of the same name - the Arleigh Burke. Units of this type were designed and built as multi-purpose destroyers, with special emphasis, however, on countering airborne targets. In the construction of these ships, the British experience from the Falklands war was used, and as a result, Kevlar armor was added to the most viable parts of ships of this class. At the same time, the Arleigh Burke-class ships have the revolutionary AEGIS network combat system, cooperating with the AN / SPY-1 radar, which provides them with unprecedented possibilities to control the airspace and counter air targets. It is the same system that is used on the Ticonderoga-class cruiser. The leading ship of this class is the USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51). The vessel was built at Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine. As early as 1993, she was directed to the Adriatic Sea, where she took part in the Provide Promise operation. Two years later, the ship returned to this reservoir. in 1998, USS Arleigh Burke took part in numerous exercises and tests that were conducted in the Mediterranean, Black and Red Seas. In 2003, he took an active part in the coalition's offensive against Iraq. In May 2007, the ship ran aground, but returned to service as a result of the towing action. Three years later, the ship underwent modernization and renovation works. In 2014, he took part in operations against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. The unit remains in the line.
