For some reason I have never been happy with this ship. The idea is ok, with a follow up heavy cruiser on the same hull, same sort of thing the Japanese (Mogami) and US (Brooklyn/Wichita) did with their ships. A redraw may well be in this ships future. To me it just does not look right, maybe its the turrets or superstructure.

Last of the pre-war cruisers the pair of Triton class cruisers were Atlantis' reply to the large multi-gunned US, Japanese, and UK cruisers. First cruisers built for Atlantis without an integral aircraft handling area.
