APNS Oregon City (CA-122)

APNS Oregon City (CA-122) underway approximately ten miles northeast of Provincetown, New England, on June 17th 1946.

The Oregon City-class were a class of eight heavy cruisers of the American People's Navy. The Oregon City-class cruisers were a modified version of the previous Baltimore-class design; the main difference was a more compact pyramidal superstructure with single trunked funnel, intended to improve the arcs of fire of the anti-aircraft (AA) guns. The same type of modification also differentiated the Cleveland and Fargo-classes of light cruisers.
