The USS Ross is one of four Arleigh Burke class destroyers assigned to European Theater Anti Ballistic Missile duties and forward based in Rota Spain.
As part of this task, the aft Phalanx CIWS mount has been replaced by a SeaRAM mount in an attempt to address concerns that the defense of the ship itself is weakened when the AEGIS system is focused on ABM duties.
