The Gloucester-class cruiser (aka CGN-1 class) was developed as a result of fears that the Carrier battle group was vulnerable to saturation attacks. That fear has been mitigated by the addition of the nearly equally heavily armed DGN-93 STAR destroyer to the fleet. They were recently retrofitted to carry Mk58 VLS cells instead of Mk41 VLS amidships, in order to carry the KEI from the Old Dominion. Prior retrofits resulted in the first two ships getting the STAR system. Every ship since the third has carried the STAR system from the beginning.
