USS CHANCELLORSVILLE (CG 62) is the 16th
Ticonderoga class guided-missile cruiser and the 12th ship in that class built
by Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
USS CHANCELLORSVILLE's primary mission is
to operate with aircraft carrier battle groups or as part of surface action
groups in extreme threat environments well into the 21st century. The purpose
of the ship is to detect, classify and track hundreds of potential targets
simultaneously in the air, on the surface, and under the sea. It can destroy
targets using a variety of weapons: ship and helicopter launched torpedoes,
deck guns, surface-to-air and surface-to-surface missiles, rapid-fire close-in
weapons, and electronic jammers and decoys. USS CHANCELLORSVILLE is
forward-deployed to Yokosuka, Japan, and assigned to Carrier Strike Group Five
supporting security and stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
November 4th, 2019 will mark the 30th
Anniversary of the commissioning of USS CHANCELLORSVILLE. Feel free to browse
around, learn more about us and meet some of the finest men and women the Navy
has to offer.
The crest's trident is symbolic of sea
power. The three tines of the trident represent USS CHANCELLORSVILLE's
anti-air, anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare capabilities. The AEGIS shape
and Civil War cannon embody new and old weaponry.
