Worcester Class Light Cruiser

The Worcester class was the last of the all-gun cruisers ( along with the Des Moines Class) built for the US Navy. The class consisted of ten ships in which only two were completed (Worcester and Roanoke). The ships were the successors to the Juneau and Cleveland class light cruisers. The ships were armed with twelve 6"/47 caliber Mark 16DP guns in six twin turrets, having a fire rate of 13 shots per minute. The term DP means that the guns are able to fire at both surface and air targets.
