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.
