Task Force AC Light Cruisers


 These two are Brooklyn-class Cruisers Classified as Light Cruisers because of their 6 inch Guns.  They are in fact heavier and longer then many of the treaty class Heavy Cruisers like the New Orleans class which is 18 feet shorter and more than 2000 tons lighter.
 With 15 6-Inch guns the Brooklyn Class can put a lot of fire down on a target.  Some of these cruisers had such a high rate of fire in action that men on other ships thought they had caught fire.
I have not named these ships yet but I am leaning toward USS Boise and USS Nashville
