Fisher's "large light cruisers" COURAGEOUS and GLORIOUS probably take out the prize - 15" guns, 22690 tons deep load.

Despite their size, both of Fisher's tinFOIL clads were even worse than many later light cruisers, when it came to protection! DFO

I was reading the wiki page on her and it said that she was actually brought to the scrappers under her own power. Problem is there was no cite listed and I couldn't find anything saying that but I was wondering if anyone here knew otherwise? I wouldn't think she did vomit you never know.

Nice looking ship certainly shows the potential of the Kent class design

Cristobalite Colon is currently in Australia helping the RAN with the introduction into service of her close relative HMAS Hobart.
This follows the long deployment of Cantabria in 2013 and cements a strong relationship between the RAN and the Armada

Cristobal Colon has completed her 4 month deployment to the RAN and has sailed from Sydney on 19th June.
During her deployment she played a major role in training the ships company from HMAS Hobart and her own crew benefitted from the high tempo ops whilst in Australia.
