The project envisioned a formidable light cruiser armed with fifteen 152 mm dual-purpose guns, representing a theoretical advancement of the Worcester class. In the early 1940s, the United States explored designs for vessels equipped to combat high-altitude aircraft. Among the armaments contemplated were 152 mm dual-purpose guns mounted in triple-gun turrets, a concept that never progressed beyond the planning stages.
