USS Atlanta

USS Atlanta Hull

Originally designed as “flankers” to protect the U.S. battle fleet from enemy destroyers and aircraft, this handsome class of light cruisers found their niche as a dedicated anti-aircraft platform. They saw wide service throughout the war in every theatre of operations.

RC Warship Combat Captains are finding the USS Atlanta class a useful addition to fleet battles as a fast “hit and run” shooter, able to get in, cause damage, and then get out of trouble quickly, and as a secondary ship in campaign events. The Atlanta is available as either a full kit or as a fiberglass hull only.
