USS Cushing (DD-797) was an American destroyer from World War II and the post-war period. The keel for this vessel was laid in May 1943, and the launch took place in September of the same year. The total length of the ship at the time of launching was 114.8 meters and a width of 12 meters. Full displacement reached approx. 2,500 tons, and the maximum speed was approx. 36-37 knots. The armament at the time of the launch consisted of five 127 mm guns, 6 40 mm guns, 10 20 mm anti-aircraft guns and 10 533 mm torpedo tubes.

USS Cushing (DD-797) was one of 175 Fletcher-class destroyers. Units of this type were designed and built on a massive scale to accelerate the decommissioning process of the obsolete US Navy destroyer dating back to the First World War. Fletcher-class ships were designed from the beginning to work with large ships of the US Navy, as well as had strong anti-aircraft armament. They were also characterized by the so-called a smooth hull without a step amidships. USS Cushing during World War II operated in the Pacific region, beginning its combat route by supporting American operations in the Mariana Islands and Palau in 1944. The unit also supported operations in the Philippines and participated in the Battle of Leyte Bay in late 1944. She also shelled Japanese positions on Iwo-Jima and Okinawa in 1945. In 1947, the destroyer was transferred to a reserve, but returned to active service during the Korean War (1950-1953) and took part in this armed conflict, including shelling the coast of North Korea. In 1961, it was handed over to Brazil, and in 1973 it was withdrawn from service with that country's navy.
