The USS Ticonderoga (CG-47) was a United States Navy guided-missile cruiser and the lead ship in the Ticonderoga Class. It was named for the capture of Fort Ticonderoga in 1775 as well as the aircraft carrier USS Ticonderoga (CV-14) that was nearly sunk in World War II. It was the fifth U.S. Navy ship to bear this name. The ships keel was laid on January 21, 1980 and on May 16, 1981 it was christened by first lady Nancy Reagan. The Ticonderoga was commissioned on January 22, 1983 and called the US Navy base in Norfolk Virginia its home port until 1996 when it was relocated to Pascagoula, Mississippi. The Ticonderoga (CG-47) was decommissioned on September 30, 2004 after which she was towed to the Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility in Philadelphia. In May 2013 the ship was stricken from the Naval Vessel Register.

The Ticonderoga Class ship was first conceived as a low cost, large production number vessel with a hull based on the Spruance Class Destroyer, but was later redesigned as a cruiser. Over time the Ticonderoga Class evolved in to one of the most advanced ships in the United States Navy inventory. The Ticonderoga Class was the first combat surface ship to be equipped with the AEGIS weapon system that can detect threats 200 miles away and provide defense against the threat. Originally there were 27 ships built but 5 have been retired.
