USS Bainbridge CGN-25 Ship Models

Kit# DC047 Resin kit 18" long. $259.95


The USS BAINBRIDGE was commissioned on October 6, 1962. The world's first nuclear frigate was powered by two pressurized water reactors, and carried two twin Terrier missile launchers, two twin 3" .50 caliber radar controlled gun mounts, two torpedo mounts, an ASROC launcher, and was equipped with state of the art electronics and communications suites. In April 1964, during her second Mediterranean deployment, she joined USS LONG BEACH for the first time and later in May, along with USS ENTERPRISE, formed the world's first nuclear powered task group, Task Group 60.1. She entered dry dock at Mare Island Shipyard in August 1967 for her first refueling. In 1974 she began a 27 month shipyard modernization and overhaul in Bremerton, Washington. While in the shipyard, her 3" .50 caliber guns were removed and replaced with 20MM cannon, she received the AN/SPS-48 radar, and the Naval Tactical Data System was installed. Additionally, the aft superstructure was constructed and an additional level was added on the forward superstructure to support the SLQ-32. On 30 June 1975, BAINBRIDGE was re-designate a cruiser during the Navy's reorganization of ship designations; DLGN 25 became CGN-25. After deactivation, BAINBRIDGE was towed to Norfolk Naval Shipyard for de-fueling and preparation for the final movement of the hull to Bremerton, Washington.
