USS Chosin Engages in Pre-Aim Calibration Fire

Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Chosin (CG 65) recently conducted a pre-aim calibration fire.

During the drill, USS Chosin crew fired a short burst with the MK-15 Phalanx close-in weapons system and tested a 5-Inch 54-caliber Mk-45 lightweight gun. The drills were conducted in the Pacific Ocean on January 27 as part of the vessel’s routine training.

USS Chosin is named in honor of the Battle of Chosin Reservoir of the Korean War. Commissioned in 1991, the vessel is currently deployed in the Pacific Fleet, based in Pearl Harbor. Chosin has participated in Operation Southern Watch, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
