Renwal USS King Guided Missile Destroyer model kit 1/500Revell Monogram
Farragut-class Guided Missile Destroyers like the USS King carried surface to air, surface to surface, and anti-submarine warfare missiles to give them kill capability against the entire spectrum of possible threats. Its primary early armament of a Terrier missile battery was intended to swat enemy aircraft out of the sky from far beyond the range of anti-aircraft artillery. In service, the USS King launched search and rescue operations and protected other vessels from air attack off the coast of Vietnam.
