Strange outlay of her funnels here. Taken in 1985 (22 years since), is this 'Class' still in commission?

Hello David: During the later 1980s these ships underwent a large update which altered their profiles/armament etc. Now classed as DDG, only three of the original class of four remain and will so until at least 2010 although now over 35 yrs, they are still quite serviceable since upgrade.Rgds, Ken
