TOKYO, June 18. /TASS/. The guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville, equipped with the latest Aegis Baseline 9 combat system, arrived on Thursday at the US base in Yokosuka, Japan, at the entrance of Tokyo Bay, where it will be deployed on a permanent basis.
This is the first out of three ships fitted with the integrated naval weapons system designed to track and guide weapons to destroy enemy targets. The others will be deployed there by late 2017.
The command of the base said the deployment of three additional ships outfitted with the Aegis system is part of a strategy of a shift towards the Asia-Pacific region.
The US will send 14 ships to Yokosuka led by the Ronald Reagan Nimitz-class nuclear-powered supercarrier that will arrive in Japan this autumn. This will be the major grouping of the base since the end of the World War II.
