I suggest you read your last post and correct it, any further questions or wrong quotes should be posted in the HISTORY forum already posted.

Guys,
Look, the US has over 15 of her ships from WW2, and Britain has i believe two, HMS Belfast and one of your Destroyer, i cant remember her name right now, it would have been nice to keep at least one Battleship.. surely you all cant disagree with that right?

Belfast ??????LIGHT CRUISER ?????? WTF .

I think Belfast can reasonably be described as a light cruiser iaw the London Naval Conference armament specs. No matter that all bets were off when the WW2 kicked off.

The RN can't afford its modern fleet (sorry, squadron) let alone museum pieces. Are any of the following really HM Ships / Submarines?
HMS Cavalier, HMs/m Alliance, HMS Warrior
or museums erroneously prefixed HMS?

Thare's a few pre and post war knocking about (Chatham and Pompey for starters). There's an O boat up North with HMS Plymouth that are advertised as HMS so I assume the MoD are happy with it.

IIRC correctly, the difference between light and heavy cruisers was in the size of the gun they carried - although BELFAST came out with a 12600 tonnage, she came out as a light cruiser (4x3 6"), whereas the SAN FRANCISCO class of the USN weighed in at somewhere around 9950 tons (pre-war), they carried 9 x 8", thereby making them heavy cruisers (CA as opposed to CL), like the COUNTY class (4x2 8"). Could be wrong though...........
