USS Chancellorsville Deploys for Indo-Asia-Pacific Region Patrol

The Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Chancellorsville (CG 62) departed Fleet Activities (FLEACT) Yokosuka, for an Indo-Asia-Pacific region patrol, July 22.

Chancellorsville is the latest addition to the Forward Deployed Naval Force (FDNF) in Japan, from her previous homeport in San Diego.

While in San Diego, the ship underwent upgrades to include a new Aegis Baseline 9 system. Chancellorsville arrived in Japan, June 18, and underwent a maintenance period prior to getting underway.

Chancellorsville, with a crew of more than 350 Sailors, will perform theater security cooperation engagements and maritime security operations while maintaining stability in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.
