USS Long Beach (CGN 9) was a unique ship, principally because she was the only vessel in her class. She was a nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser commissioned into the US Navy (USN) on 9 September 1961. She also had the distinction of being the USA’s first all-new cruiser design since WWII, and since cruisers since then have generally been based simply on scaled-up destroyer hulls, her crew aptly described her as “The Only Real Cruiser.” USS Long Beach had a pair of 5-inch 38-calibre guns mounted amidships, and in 1979 she began a midlife upgrade at Puget Sound. At that point the original aft-mounted RIM-8 Talos launcher was replaced by twin four-cell Harpoon anti-ship missile launchers. The cruiser saw combat in the Gulf of Tonkin during the Vietnam War, and also endured long enough to provide support during the 1991 Gulf War as a carrier escort.


Dragon have selected three Cold War-era USS warships, namely Virginia CGN-38, Albany CG-10, and Long Beach CGN-9 from 1980, for production in 1/700 scale. These models have been unavailable in the market for quite some time, and ship modelers are expected to be highly enthusiastic about obtaining them after all these years. These models showcase the intricate details of three distinct classes of warships. Additionally, photo-etched parts are included to enhance the level of detail even further.
