USS ROBERT SMALLS (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 ROBERT SMALLS'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 ROBERT SMALLS 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 ROBERT SMALLS. Feel free to browse around, learn more about us and meet some of the finest men and women the Navy has to offer.
