The 7th US Fleet, based in Japan, is building up its strength. As reported by the command, the fleet was replenished with the destroyer Rafael Peralta (USS Rafael Peralta, DDG-115) of the Arleigh Burke class.


The destroyer USS Rafael Peralta DDG-115 on Thursday arrived at the Yokosuka naval base in Japan for permanent deployment. In command fleet stressed that the destroyer is one of the "newest and most advanced" ships of the US Navy.

The presence of the destroyer Rafael Peralta strengthens the national security of the United States, its allies and partners, and improves the ability to protect strategic interests

- said in a statement.

The increase in the number of surface ships in the 7th Fleet in the United States has traditionally been explained by "a commitment to ensuring regional security in the implementation of the rule of law" in the Indian-Pacific region.

    This is already a classic ... without any newfangled quirks.

      Yes, they mold all the latest on new vessels ... (Well, maybe not THE SAME, but definitely not old!)

          It seems that during the Cold War, the Americans abandoned the practice of changing the TZ during construction.

            When a product has been in production for many years, changes are inevitable ... for technically complex products, it is imperative.

              There were some articles about their mass production program, there was just this condition to speed up construction.

                So the product always has the potential for modernization ... this is normal, correct.

    Objectively, the T-34 became the best WWII tank not because it was the most, the most, the most.
    But because it was decent, reliable, technologically advanced, inexpensive and massive.
    So is Arleigh Burke, alas, to our regret.

      UV. Prior, if you leave from "the most, the most, the most", then, IMHO, you need to remove the word "worthy". Honestly, I don't even understand what you mean.

    As far as I understand, since the destroyer is the newest and most advanced, then the crew should be from transvestites. Biden gave permission to serve these "cream of the American society", it is not bad that one of them became the Captain of the boat.

            The same as the Russian military personnel in Syria. Just don't talk about the fight against terrorism.

    "commitment to regional security in realizing the rule of law" in the Indian-Pacific region
    And tell me where the United States does not care about security and the rule of law? Already even to the moon got together to defend the extraction of minerals. The "rule of law" was vividly shown in the United States itself during and after the elections.

    Japan's tacit consent, I personally despise. The Yankees burned them with an "atom", and these now bow. Ugh! And where is their pride?
    pc The steamer is worthy, we would have an analogue.

        In my opinion, Shaposhnikov approached, the others are lagging behind. In addition, they are 30-40 years old, there are only 8 of them, and modernization is needed hi

    This is already a classic ... without any newfangled quirks.

    So here we are not talking about a newly built ship. It has been in service for more than 3 years. Here we are talking about the fact that it was the 7th Fleet that received a new combat unit, that is, the matter is in the usual translation or even simple rotation. ...
