The Ticonderoga-class carriers were Essex-class aircraft carriers modified with a clipper bow to allow the placement of a second 40 mm quadruple gun mount on the bows. The Ticonderogas are also often only regarded as the "long hull" group of the Essex-class. All Essex-class ships that underwent the postwar SCB-27A/C modifications finally received the clipper bows. However, the clipper bow caused excessive slamming into the seas. Therefore, all ships modernised during the SCB-125 program received an enclosed "hurricane bow".
