The attached calendar year 1986 command history of USS BUNKER HILL (CG 52), a newly commissioned AEGIS cruiser, is forwarded in compliance with reference (a). As BUNKER HILL was officially commissioned on 8 September 1986, the chronology and narrative begin on that date. However, enclosure ( 1 ) provides a detailed account of all precommissioning activities which occurred from the formation of the Precommissioning Unit and Detachment in 1985 until official commissioning in 1986. Enclosures (2) through ( 1 1 ) provide additional background data on the command and its personnel. </p><p>2.

QUAST </p></li><li><p>Command Composition and Organization </p><p>1. Characteristics. USS BUNKER HILL is an AEGIS Guided Missile Cruiser of the TICONDEROGA class. However, it is the first ship of the class equipped with the MK 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS) for missiles (Standard Missile 2 Block 11, Tomahawk Cruise Missile) which sets it apart from predecessors delivered with the MK 26 Guided Missile Launching System. BUNKER HILL is the first combatant designed from the keel up to carry the Tomahawk Cruise missile. Sixteen hundred of twenty three hundred class design drawings were re-engineered to accomodate these changes in BUNKER HILL. Enclosures (3), (8) and (9) provide more specifics on the ship's design and characteristics. </p><p>2. Missions. BUNKER HILL'S mission areas include: </p><p>- Anti-Air Warfare (AAW) - Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) - Anti-Surface Warfare (ASUW) - Strike Warfare (STW) (Tomahawk) - Electronic Warfare (ELW) - Command, Control and Communications (CCC) - ~obiiity (MOB) - Naval Gunfire Support (AMW) </p><p>3. Organization. Upon official commissioning 8 September 1986, BUNKER HILL came under the administrative control of the Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet and the operational control of Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Atlantic Fleet. On 22 October 1986, during transit to Pacific waters, the ship switched operational control to Commander, Third Fleet. Upon arrival at BUNKER HILL'S permanent homeport of San Diego, California, operational and administrative control shifted to Commander, Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet throughout the remainder of calendar year 1986. Captain Philip M. Quast, USN, 393-34-6965/1110, lineal number 001793-30 assumed command of BUNKER HILL on 8 September 1986 and retains command at this time. </p><p>4. Subordinate Commands. Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light 45, Detachment One was permanently assigned to USS BUNKER HILL upon commissioning. The detachment's parent squadron is based at Naval Air Station North Island California. The detachment's Officer in Charge is LCDR Larry E. Larson, USN. One aircraft, an SH-60B LAMPS MK I11 helo, nLonewolf 4011, Bureau Number 162134, was assigned with the detachment through the end of 1986. Further information on aircraft statistics can be found in enclosure (6). </p></li><li><p>5 . Summary a f l o a t . I t E N T I R E C a r r S o v i e t a i r , </p><p>.

The Precommissioning Unit BUNKER HILL (PCU) was established in August 1985 at the Ingalls Shipbuilding Division in Pascagoula, Mississippi. The primary missions of the precommissioning unit were to establish the administrative framework of the ship's organization, monitor the progress of ship construction, and train/familiarize the crew with BUNKER HILL. The Precommissioning Detachment BUNKER HILL (PCD) was established in March 1985 in San Diego, California at the 32nd Street Naval Station. Its primary focus was to serve as a training ground for newly reported personnel by funneling them through a myriad of required FTC and NTC schools. The precommissioning unit was disestablished upon commissioning; the precommissioning detachment was previously disestablished and transferred all its personnel to the precommissioning unit on 4 September 1986. Enclosure (1) provides more detail on the activities of both the precommissioning unit and detachment. </p><p>2. BUNKER HILL was one of the first AEGIS cruisers to bring its LAMPS MK I11 helicopter detachment aboard early in the ship's life to allow full integration into the ship's workup and training process. Detailed description of detachment organziation and capabilities can be found in enclosures (6), (8) and (9), and in Part I of the basic document. </p><p>3. BUNKER HILL (CG 52) became an officially commissioned U.S. Navy ship on 8 September 1986. The traditional ceremony was postponed until arrival at Boston, Massachussets on 20 September in order to capitalize on the recruiting and public relations benefits from the event, as well as the involvement...</p></li></ul>
