This is NASHVILLE (CL-43) in October of 1944 while operating in the Philippines. The ship is camouflaged in the light pattern system of Measure 33/21D.
NASHVILLE shows the standard mid-war refit scheme applied to the BROOKLYN class ships, which drastically reduced the superstructure fore and aft. This refit moved the foremast aft 7' and added a large platform forward to accommodate an SK air search radar, with an SG on the foretop above. A second SG was fitted to the small platform on the mainmast. The prominent searchlight and radio direction finding platform between the stacks has been reduced by one deck level, and 20mm Oerlikons in tubs have been added amidships and abeam the searchlight platform. Mark 4 "FD" radar has been fitted to the Mark 33 directors for the 5" guns. NASHVILLE's Mark 34 forward main battery director has received the modern (for the time) Mark 8 "FH" ranging radar, while the aft director retains its Mark 3 "FC" radar, likely due to supply issues. A Vought OS2U Kingfisher of VCS-15 (Cruiser Scouting Squadron FIFTEEN) is spotted on the catapult aft.
NASHVILLE would survive the war to be sold to the Chilean Navy, where it would serve until 1982 as the CAPITAN PRAT.
