The Leahy-class were "double-end" Guided Missile Destroyer Leaders (DLG), which were reclassified as Guided Missile Cruisers (CG) in 1975. The class was given an Anti-Aircraft Warfare (AAW) upgrade during the late 1960's and early 1970's with Terrier launchers modified to fire either Terrier or Standard missiles. Additionally the 3" guns were replaced by eight Harpoon missiles and two Phalanx CIWS were added.

All were further upgraded under the late-1980's New Threat Upgrade (NTU) program which included combat system capability improvements to the ship's Air Search Radars, Fire Control Radars and Combat Direction System. These improvements provided an accurate means of coordinating the engagement of multiple air targets with SM-2 Extended Range missiles. During the NTU overhaul, all spaces were renovated, berthing and food service areas were refurbished and the engineering plant was fully overhauled.

The entire class was taken out of service in the early 1990's, stricken and transferred to the Maritime Administration for disposal.
