L. . ' - tttar USS REID HISTDRY USS REID is the eighth Oliver Hazard Perry Class Guided Missile Frigate built for the U. S. Navy by Todd Pacific Corporation, Los Angeles, California. On her commissioning of 19 February 1983, REID joi- ned the Pacific fleet. The concept of the class began in 1971 when the United States Navy initiated a program to build fifty Patrol Frigates. The class was later redesignated as Guided Missile Erigates and the class leader - USS OLIVER HAZARD PERRY was commissioned on 17 December 1977. It is the largest Naval Destroyer class to be built since World War II. REID's operational role is to complement the fIeet's ability to keep the world's sea lanes open and free and to provide for in-depth protection of military and merchant shipping, underway logistics groups, amphibious forces and aircraft battle groups. To achieve this the ship has been specifically designed to simultaneously counter threats posed by air, sur- face and subsurface launched missiles and enemy warships. In today's defense environment, the ability to re- spond rapidly and effectively is the key to success. All of REID's systems are designed to meet this important requirement. The Combat System is a new and inno- vative design, integrating a computerized command 2 and decision system with the ship to reduce the num- ber of crew members required. Designed to provide quick reaction defense against surprise anti-ship missile attack, REID com- plements the capabilities of other ships of the fleet in ensuring thorough multi-threat protection. Sensors and Weapons. Two digital computers provide rapid evaluation of potential threats detected by the radars, the digital sonar, or other shipboard sensors. Should the need arise, surface-to-air and sur- face-to-surface missiles, a rapid fire gun, Close In Weapons System, ASW torpedoes, and an embarked helicopter can be employed effectively in countering potential threats. Quick reactions are not limited to combat systems alone. Two computer controlled Gas Turbine Eng1I195 operating through a controllable pitch propeller glye the ship high acceleration speed and maneuverabllltl' and the ability to be "on line" in less than one tenth of the time required by steam turbine shipS. TWO for-I ward mounted auxiliary propulsion units give the Sl11P excellent maneuverability in confined harbors and 3 secondary means of propulsion. . Habitability has been improved over. Previous designs and labor saving devices and maintenance techniques have been incorporated.
