It was actually a pretty cool ship. I had the pleasure of doing a Tiger Cruise on it when I was a kid. Saw my first sonic boom from an F-14 Tomcat, and it scared the shit out of me. Damn plane snuck up right behind me haha. A lot of fish died that day.
"Was" being the operative word. By the time it served as FOB Afloat during Restore/Uphold Democracy it was far from 'cool'
