The US Navy will buy a new ship in 2023 which will be larger than a destroyer but which is not yet called a cruiser. It will be bigger and more expensive than the Arleigh Burke Flight III design and will have more room.
The US Ticonderoga class of guided missile cruisers was first ordered and authorized in the 1978 fiscal year. The cruisers displaced 9600 tons.
The most recent Arleigh Burke Flight block III displace 9600 tons.
The US Navy bought three super-advanced Zumwalt destroyers which displace 15,000 tons.
China’s new Type-055 destroyer displaces 12,000 to 13,000 tons.
It seems likely that the US will go for a 13,000-ton to 20,000-ton ship design with an integrated power system to support railguns and lasers. The US will build a larger hull and fill in the railgun and lasers and power systems at a later time.
The US previously canceled the CG(X) cruiser project. This would have been a 20,000 to 25,000-ton ship.
