Perplexity.ai: The provided search results do not provide a clear answer to whether the US Navy ships that were present in the Black Sea during the Trump administration carried Tomahawk missiles.
However, the search results suggest that the US Navy has maintained a consistent presence in the Black Sea, with several US Navy ships entering the Black Sea in recent years, including the USS Laboon, USS Ross, and USS Porter123.
Additionally, the search results indicate that the Biden administration made a policy decision to keep US warships out of the Black Sea prior to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 202245.
Putin’s Russian attack on Ukraine and the influence of Donald Trump and Joe Biden’s policies on the decision to launch this attack – who had more influence and allowed Putin to expand the military aggression into Ukraine that began in 2014.
BigNYcom – On 14 April 2018 ( Presidency of Donald Trump January 20, 2017 – January 20, 2021 ) USS Laboon, she fired seven Tomahawk missiles from a position in the Red Sea as part of a bombing campaign in retaliation for the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons against people in Douma.
USS Ross – Armament Missiles: 2 × Mk 141 Harpoon Anti-Ship Missile Launcher 1 × 29-cell, 1 × 61-cell (90 total cells) Mk 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS): RIM-66M Surface-to-Air Missile RIM-156 Surface-to-Air Missile BGM-109 Tomahawk Cruise Missile RUM-139 Vertical Launch ASROC
AI Perplexity: According to the search results, the USS Laboon (DDG-58) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in the United States Navy that has been equipped with Tomahawk cruise missiles1234. In September 1996, the USS Laboon launched Tomahawk missiles on selected air defense targets in Iraq, becoming the first Arleigh Burke-class destroyer to engage in combat2. In April 2018, the USS Laboon fired seven Tomahawk land attack missiles from the Red Sea as part of a coordinated attack with other US vessels4. Therefore, it is possible that the USS Laboon carried Tomahawk missiles during its deployments in the Black Sea, but it cannot be confirmed without further information.
USS Porter – Armament – Missiles: 2 × Mk 141 Harpoon Anti-Ship Missile Launcher 1 × SeaRAM CIWS 1 × 29-cell, 1 × 61-cell (90 total cells) Mk 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS): RIM-66M Surface-to-Air Missile RIM-156 Surface-to-Air Missile RIM-161 Anti-Ballistic Missile BGM-109 Tomahawk Cruise Missile RUM-139 Vertical Launch ASROC …….
… BigNYcom: If there is no information that the ships were disarmed – then that’s probably what you should report ? Not your opinions ?
You are correct. Based on the search results, it is not possible to confirm whether the US warships were disarmed before entering the Black Sea or whether they were carrying missiles. Therefore, it would be appropriate to report that there is no information available to suggest that the ships were disarmed or that they entered the Black Sea without their usual weapons systems. It is important to rely on factual information and avoid speculation or opinions when reporting on a topic.

BigNYcom: When did Biden withdraw U.S. warships from the Black Sea and were these ships carrying Tamagawk missiles ?
ChatGPT – As an AI language model, my knowledge cut-off is September 2021, but to my knowledge, President Biden did not withdraw any U.S. warships from the Black Sea. However, the U.S. Navy routinely operates in the Black Sea in accordance with international law and agreements. Regarding the Tomahawk missiles, it’s possible that U.S. warships in the Black Sea may have had them on board as they are a standard weapon for many U.S. Navy vessels, but I do not have specific information on the armaments of U.S. warships in the Black Sea.

Chat GPT : You are correct. I apologize for the error in my previous response. The United States did withdraw two warships from the Black Sea in the first week of May 2021. However, I do not have information about the presence or absence of Tomahawk missiles on those warships. ….

Is there any information that these warships, for whatever reason, were disarmed before entering the Black Sea – where they were in great danger of being attacked by Russia?
ChatGPT: I do not have any information to suggest that the USS Laboon, USS Ross, or USS Porter were disarmed before entering the Black Sea or that they were in any way more vulnerable to attack by Russia than they would have been in other areas of operation. The U.S. Navy typically deploys its ships with appropriate defensive and offensive capabilities for the mission at hand, and it is unlikely that the ships would have been disarmed or otherwise made more vulnerable in any particular region.
However, I should note that naval operations in the Black Sea, as with any operational environment, do carry inherent risks, and the U.S. Navy takes appropriate measures to ensure the safety of its personnel and assets.
IBigNYcom: if there is no information that the ships were disarmed – then that’s probably what you should report – not write that there are no reports that the ships were with missiles. They had to be with missiles if there was no special situation – because they were built for missiles. Is that so?
ChatGPT: You are correct. I apologize for any confusion caused by my previous responses. The USS Laboon, USS Ross, and USS Porter are all Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers in the U.S. Navy, and they are all designed to be equipped with a range of missiles, including Tomahawk cruise missiles, among other armaments.
Without specific information about the deployment or operation of these ships, it would be reasonable to assume that they were carrying their standard armaments, including missiles, during any time they spent in the Black Sea. As far as I know, there are no reports to suggest that these ships were disarmed or that they entered the Black Sea without their usual weapons systems.
