US Tomahawk cruise missile strikes in Syria launched from USS Ross.

USS Porter (DDG-78) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the United States Navy. Porter is the fifth U.S. Navy ship to be named after U.S. Navy officers Commodore David Porter, and his son, Admiral David Dixon Porter.

USS Ross (DDG-71) is an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer in the United States Navy, and is named for Medal of Honor recipient Donald K. Ross.

The Arleigh Burke class of guided missile destroyers (DDGs) is the United States Navy’s first class of destroyer built around the Aegis Combat System and the SPY-1D multifunction passive electronically scanned array radar. The class is named for Admiral Arleigh Burke, the most famous American destroyer officer of World War II, and later became Chief of Naval Operations. The class leader, USS Arleigh Burke, was commissioned during Admiral Burke’s lifetime.

Strategic land strike with Tomahawk missiles is only one function of the destroyer. The warship includes Aegis radar and surface-to-air missiles; antisubmarine warfare (ASW), with towed sonar array, anti-submarine rockets, an ASW helicopter; antisurface warfare (ASuW) with a Harpoon missile launcher, which is an all-weather, over-the-horizon, anti-ship missile system.
