    The 178m-long USS Virginia (CGN-38) was a nuclear-powered guided missile cruiser of the US Navy that was commissioned in 1976. Its first taste of combat was in 1983 when the ship fired approximately 300 five-inch rounds into Lebanon. Its 500 crew members also provided assistance after the bombing of the Marine Barracks in Beirut. In 1990 the USS Virginia deployed to the eastern Mediterranean in support of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. During this conflict, the cruiser fired two Tomahawk missiles into Iraq, thereby achieving the longest combat firing of a Tomahawk up till that time. The 11,000-ton ship was eventually decommissioned in 1994.
