The 6 NORTHAMPTON class Heavy Cruisers were built to add more firepower to the US Navy's battle fleet which could not build any additional battleships due to the 1922 Washington Naval Treaty.  This treaty called for a building holiday for the construction of any new battleships for 10 years and also limited the size, armaments and total tonnage allowed to build cruisers.  Because of this all the cruisers built during this time were referred to as' Treaty Cruisers. The NORTHAMPTON class cruisers possessed good firepower and speed at the expense of adequate armor protection and anti torpedo defense systems.

The PRINZ EUGEN was an improved ADMIRAL HIPPER class heavy cruiser, and was the last of her type to be completed by the German Navy.  With her raked Atlantic Bow and long profile she was considered one of the best looking cruisers of all time.  Her profile was very similar to the BISMARCK, resulting in the Battlecruiser HOOD firing on her, instead of the battleship during the fateful battle of the Denmark Strait.  The PRINZ EUGEN continued to serve throughout the war, and was turned over to the US Navy in late 1945, eventually being expended in an Atomic bomb test.  Some nice photographs of the Eugen, taken at Philadelphia prior to that are availble from the Floating Drydock.

The GRAF SPEE was the last of 3 "Panzerschiffe" (Armored Ship) built by the German navy during the early l930's. These ships were most commonly referred to as "Pocket Battleships" in the naval publications and the news media of the time. After the GRAF SPEE had been lost the 2 remaining ships were reclassified as Heavy Cruisers. When these ships were first completed they caused quite a stir in the naval community, with their 11" turrets mounted on such a small displacement and diesel engines that could propel them to 28 knots. The idea of German naval planners was that they could "out-run anything they could not out-shoot". The GRAF SPEE was the first large ship loss of the German navy in World War 2, when she was scuttled off Uruguay in December of 1939. This hull features molded in anchor recesses, armor belts, porthole locations, shaft exit housings and strut locations. A detailed set of plans is included.
