The second USS Astoria (CL/CA-34) was a United States Navy New Orleans-class cruiser that participated in both the Battle of the Coral Sea and the Battle of Midway, but was then sunk in August 1942 at the Battle of Savo Island. Originally, Astoria was the lead ship of the Astoria-class of cruisers, as she was the first ship of that class to be laid down, but received a hull number higher than New Orleans because she was launched second. Early in 1943, after Astoria had been sunk, the remaining ships of this class were refit and reclassified.

  • The second USS Astoria (CL/CA-34) was a United States Navy New Orleans-class cruiser that participated in both the Battle of the Coral Sea and the Battle of Midway, but was then sunk in August 1942 at the Battle of Savo Island. Originally, Astoria was the lead ship of the Astoria-class of cruisers, as she was the first ship of that class to be laid down, but received a hull number higher than New Orleans because she was launched second. Early in 1943, after Astoria had been sunk, the remaining ships of this class were refit and reclassified. Immediately following the Guadalcanal Campaign the remaining ships of the class would go through major overhauls to lessen top-heaviness due to new electrical and radar systems and advanced anti-aircraft weaponry. In doing so the ships took on a new appearance, most notably in the bridge, becoming known as the New Orleans-class. (en)
