This is a refit I designed for the Pensacola in 1943, which I'm going to use in my AU.

Original design by Karle94

I have. I just preferred the lighter grey color so I changed it

What i meant, is that you should change the underwater hull, from the old, to the new.

Hi Tristan,

Looks good, but I see a lot of topweight (radars, directors, not to mention the MGs and AA) - any bulges to mitigate the stability changes there? One option would be to remove the spotting top, which, if the radar and the directors are working, is largely redundant, I think. I think another favourite of the USN was to take away the plane, which, if my memory serves, again fulfilled the spotting role and so wasn't as important once your directors and radar are available to fulfil that duty..

You should copy/paste the entire underwater hull. It's looks wrong the way it is now.

This is how the Pensacola was refitted in real life: http://acepilots.com/ships/ca24.jpg

This was an armor upgrade from WoWS. So their are deviations from real life.

I have added two more links. You should still look at them, they might help take away some of the top heavyness that the Pensacola class was famous for.
