    Beautiful job! Looks great!

    Only a minor quibble...The USS HARRY W. HILL (DD-986) was one of seven SPRUANCE class destroyers never fitted with the Mk-41 VLS.

    As built, the Spruance class could carry two SH-2 LAMPS I helicopters. Some - not sure if all - of the class were later fitted with the RAST (Recovery Assist, Secure and Traverse) system which enabled them to operate the larger SH-60 LAMPS III.

    They could also accommodate the SH-3, normally the ASW helo on aircraft carriers, but I am not aware of those ever being assigned to Spruances.

    Seeing a helo reeled onto a heaving flight deck was much fun.
