The USS Mustin (DDG-89) is a modern American missile destroyer, the keel of which was laid in January 2001, the launch took place in December 2001, and entry into service with the US Navy took place in 2003. The total length of the ship is 155.3 meters and a width of 20 meters. Full displacement is around 9,200 tons and the maximum speed is just over 30 knots. The destroyer is armed with: 2 VLS Mk. 41 - one 32-rail and one 64-rail, single 127mm gun or one 20mm Vulcan Phalanx CIWS set. The ship can operate with the use of two on-board helicopters, eg the Sikorsky SH-60.

The USS Mustin (DDG-89) is one of 65 active service destroyers belonging to the Arleigh Burke class. Units of this type were designed, were and are being built as multi-role destroyers, in which, however, special emphasis was placed on countering air targets. In the construction of these ships, the British experience from the Falklands war was used, and as a result, Kevlar armor was added to the most viable parts of ships of this class. At the same time, the Arleigh Burke-class ships have the revolutionary AEGIS network combat system, cooperating with the AN / SPY-1 radar, which provides them with unprecedented possibilities to control the airspace and counter air targets. This is the same system used on the Ticonderoga-class cruisers. One of the units of this class is the USS Mustin (DDG-89). The ship was built at Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi. It was constructed in accordance with the Flight IIA standard, which means that compared to the Flight I standard, it has larger VLS launchers, the barrel of the 127 mm cannon has been extended, thanks to which its ballistic properties have improved and it has more modern electronic equipment. In addition, the USS Mustin sub-type has only one Vulcan Phalanx kit compared to two such kits mounted on standard vessels: Flight I, Flight II and the initial Flight IIA. The unit set sail for its maiden voyage in 2005, and a year later the destroyer was directed to the base in Yokosuka, Japan. Thus, he was assigned to the 7th United States Fleet. In 2008, the unit was sent to Myanmar to provide humanitarian aid related to the passage of the cyclone through this country, but due to the lack of consent of the country's authorities for assistance, USS Mustin (DDG-89) returned to its base. Three years later, the destroyer - this time actively - took part in relief after the tsunami wave and the earthquake that hit Japan. During its service, the destroyer received the Battle Efficiency Ribbon several times. USS Mustin (DDG-89) remains in active service.
