The first of 31 "Spruance-class" destroyers and 4 similar "Kidd-class" destroyers built during the 1970s and 1980s. Named for Admiral Raymond Spruance, the commander of the fleet at the Battle of Midway in June, 1942. The 4 "Kidd-class" destroyers were originally intended for the Iranian Navy, but were impounded while still under construction after the Shah of Iran was deposed in 1979, and they were eventually completed for the U.S. Navy.
