Aegis Destroyer Christened At

Ingalls Shipbuilding

America's newest Aegis guided mis- sile destroyer, Preble (DDG 88), was christened last month at Ingalls Ship- building, a Northrop Grumman compa- ny, when U.S. Rep. Edward L. Schrock of Virginia called for increasing the number of ships built annually by seven to eight ships.

In naming DDG 88 PREBLE, the

Navy for the sixth time honors Com- modore Edward Preble (1761-1807), a pioneer in U.S. naval and merchant marine service. Connie Rae Clark, wife of Chief of Naval Operations Adm.

Vcrn Clark, USN, did the honors of christening the 38th ship in the Arleigh

Burke Class of Aegis guided missile destroyers.

Measuring 509.5 ft. (155.2 m), the 9,300-ton Preble has an overall beam of 66.5 ft. (20.2 m), and a navigational draft of 32 ft. (9.7 m). Four gas turbine propulsion plants will power the ship to speeds of more than 31 knots. Operated by a crew of approximately 383 officers and crewmembers, the vessel, upon its completion in 2002 will be homeported in San Diego as part of the U.S. Pacific fleet.

DDG 88 is the 38th ship in the Arleigh

Burke (DDG 51) Class of Aegis guided missile destroyers — the Navy's most powerful destroyer fleet. _Y
