It's interesting that this would be termed an "arsenal" ship.
The last time I can recall arsenal used was when Admiral Boorda announced the Arsenal ship.
That did effect ship design going forward, but the original all missile concept ended.
Considering how cautious/superstitious some senior leaders can be, it's surprising they didn't find another name from Roget's Thesaurus.

"These things must be done delicately-- or you hurt the spell."  - The Wicked Witch of the West.
"We've got the torpedo damage temporarily shored up, the fires out and soon will have the ship back on an even keel. But I would suggest, sir, that if you have to take any more torpedoes, you take 'em on the starboard side."   Pops Healy, DCA USS Lexington.
