Side view of USS Phoenix (CL-46), 1939
Here we see a side view of the Brooklyn class light cruiser USS Phoenix (CL-46), in 1939, before the later wartime radar sets were added. Her five triple 6in turrets can be seen, two at the stern and three at the bow. The unusual bow configuration, with the central turret superfiring over the front turret, but the third turret in a rather restricted position.
