After the war, CB-3 Hawaii was left unfinished. There was no need anymore for another Alaska class, so numerous proposals were made how to repurpose this ship. Among those proposals, were a conversion to missile test ship, missile conversion (either along the lines of Boston & Canberra or along the line of the CLG's) command ship (in addition to or as alternative to the Northampton and Wright) and finally an conversion to Talos/Polaris ship. In the end, in 1958, the still unfinished ship was towed to the breakers for disposal.
The Polaris/Talos proposal, done in Februari 1957, removed all guns off the ship, fitted 20 Polaris missiles on the stern and converted the rest of the ship into an similar configuration as USS Albany, With Talos and Tartar. Of this proposal, only a few sketches and descriptions have been published and I wondered how she would look if carried out. The drawing posted here is the result of my bit of research and drawing out of this design.
As I did this primarily for research, any comments on what I might have forgotten, misunderstood or otherwise done wrong are very welcome! If no terrible errors are found, I will upload her to the test.shipbucket.com archive soon.
