Boston Class
- converted 1952 to 1956 -

Partial guided missile conversion of Baltimore class heavy cruisers. The forward 5" and 8" guns were kept, forward superstructure partially modified; the two funnels trunked and entire aft superstructure replaced. Two Terrier SAM launchers (144 missiles) fitted aft in place of the original aft 5" and 8" guns. Ships were obsolete by 1964. Both ships became CAs in 1968, with the 8" guns considered the main armament. Both were decommissioned in 1970 and later scrapped.

Galveston Class
- converted 1956 to 1960 -

Converted from Cleveland Class Light Cruisers, these ships carried the twin Talos SAM missile system (46 missiles) in lieu of the Terrier SAM missile system installed on the identical Providence Class. All but Galveston had most of their forward weaponry removed with the aft deck rebuilt for missiles. The Galveston retained all her forward guns. Little Rock is now a museum ship.

Providence Class
- converted 1959 to 1960 -

Also converted from Cleveland Class Light Cruisers, the conversion was identical to the Galveston Class except that the newer Terrier Surface-to-Air (SAM) missile system was installed. The ships had most of the original armament removed and the aft superstructure was rebuilt to carry the Terrier system with a twin-rail launcher on the stern and 122 missiles stored.  Topeka is noticeably different than her two sister ships in that Topeka retained all her forward guns. The final two conversions (CA-124 Rochester, CA-130 Bremerton) were cancelled. The entire class was taken out of service and disposed of by 1980.

Albany Class
- converted 1958 to 1964 -

Built from guided missile conversions of earlier Baltimore and Oregon City class heavy cruisers, the old superstructure, weapons and much of the interior were removed. Replaced by a new, very high superstructure to carry an extensive array of radar antennae, the conversion added long-range Talos missiles (with 104 missiles) fore and aft; a Tartar missile launcher (with 84 missiles) on each side; one ASROC; two triple torpedo tubes and two 5" guns. Entering service in 1962-64, Albany and Chicago were to be re-fitted to extend their service through 1985 but this was cancelled due to the age of the Talos system, and both were decommissioned in 1980. Columbus had been decommissioned in 1975.

Double-end guided missile destroyer leaders (DLG) re-classified as Guided Missile Cruisers (CG) in 1975, they were given an AAW upgrade during the 1960's and early 1970's with Terrier launchers modified to also fire Standard missiles; the 3" guns replaced by eight Harpoon missiles and two Phalanx were.

Belknap Class
- commissioned 1964 to 1967 -

Originally classified as Guided Missile Destroyer Leaders (DLG) these ships were re-classified as Guided Missile Cruisers in 1975. The multi-mission ships, designed to operate at high speed for extended periods of time in support of aircraft carrier task forces, could fire extended range standard missiles at any attacking aircraft or missile, had long range sonar to fire ASROC or deploy torpedo-carrying helicopters against submarines, and could fire Harpoons against enemy ships over the horizon. Also, they could conduct shore bombardment in support of amphibious operations. All ships received the New Threat Upgrade which included combat system capability improvements. The class was retired in the early 1990s after roughly 30 years of service.

Virginia Class
- commissioned 1976 to 1980 -

Nuclear powered and equipped for multiple tasks in all warfare areas, the Virginia Class was able to operate for extended periods and great distances. Equipped with two twin-rail missile launchers, two 5" guns, two triple torpedo tubes, and LAMPS helicopter the 1980's saw added eight Tomahawks, eight Harpoons, two Phalanx and the AN/SPS-49 air search radar. Planned re-fueling was canceled in the early 1990's due to the expense of maintaining the nuclear propulsion components, and the ships were all decommissioned after a relatively brief service life averaging less than two decades.
