The BAV Division of VSE Corporation (VSE/BAV) announced today that it had completed the reactivation of two ex-Kidd Class guided missile destroyers.I am sorry. To this day, this is my favorite non-Arleigh Burke class warship afloat - The Ayatollah Class. As a MIDN, I loved this ship. Glad she and her sisters are back out there - they belong at sea. Yea, they're top heavy....but that is because they are pound for pound a warship.
Harry Flammang, the Division Manager of VSE/BAV, said the final of four ex-USS Kidd Class guided missile destroyers [was] reactivated in Charleston, South Carolina for the Taiwan Navy. The departure of these ships for Taiwan draws to a close a successful, high-visibility program that has spanned three years.
