Aloha Everyone,

 

We have many Cruiser type hulls scattered about the Navy boards. Time to form up and post them here.

 

This topic is for all Cruiser type hulls, both Light, Heavy and Nuke including CA, CL, CLG, CC, CG, CGN. We have started a specific topic for the DLG to CG conversions here http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/288949-dl-destroyer-leader-conversions-dlg-dlgn-to-cg-cgn-ddg/ but feel free to post any and all Cruiser Hulls.

 

First up, Cleveland class light cruiser (CL-66) converted to USS SPRINGFIELD (CLG-7) in service 1944 to 1978

USS OKLAHOMA CITY (CL-91/CLG-5/CG-5) Another WWII Cleveland cl. to Galveston cl. Guided Missile Light Cruiser in service 1944 to 1979. She was converted to CLG-5 in 1957 and redesignated CG-5 in 1975. During the Vietnam War she was also the Flagship of the 7th Fleet homeported at Yokosuka, Japan. She was a squared away ship with beautiful wood decks, I'd usually see her pierside beside the USS MIDWAY when she was in port.
