The New Orleans class is the last class of the second-generation "treaty-type" heavy cruiser built between the two world wars. The seven heavy cruisers of this class are all similar in appearance. Their standard displacement during the war was 10,136 tons, and their full load displacement was 12,436 tons. Due to the increase in radar, electronic equipment and air defense weapons, the displacement is also increasing year by year. During World War II, the New Orleans class was considered the most frequently used warship in the U.S. Navy. They participated in almost all major combat operations, although only four remained after 1942. The New Orleans-class heavy cruiser won a total of 63 battle star medals in its operations against Japan on the Pacific battlefield.
