Thank you Ian. Saves me time there!
In all honesty, I was looking through the site to check for further updates. I missed this one...
Erik: Yes, they did. Both the Providence
and, to somewhat lesser degree, the Springfield
, were kept to the highest possible standard, when it concerned their electronic communication suit, but money simply was not forthcoming to replace or digitize the Terrier directors, or, for that matter, upgrade the Terrier system itself. Although the system had one channel per arm, as latter systems before Aegis, the system faced block obsolescence by the end of the 1960s. Hence why the USS Topeka
, in every other respect a fine and fairly well-kept unit was withdrawn after only about nine years of service!
