Fine looking old ship. The new cruisers are faster and maybe ultimately more formidable in terms of fire-power, but none of them have the lines and style of these old gals.

Hey! Thanks a lot Old Swabbie. That is a good photo of the Newport News too. Glad to see you on Pixdaus. I hope you will stay awhile.

One of the three Des Moines Class heavy cruisers( Des Moines, Salem, Newport News ), she displaced 21,000 tons, had a flank speed of over 32 knots, and like her sisters, was armed with the fastest firing major caliber guns in the world. And she may have been the last ship in any navy to have a teak wood main deck.
