Details

The last major American warship to be lost during World War II, in the greatest sea disaster in American naval history, was the ship that had just delivered the core of the first atomic bomb to the war zone, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis. The two ships of the Portland-Class were the last American cruisers completed with clipper bows and aircraft hangers between their two stacks. Built in Camden, New Jersey and commissioned in November 1932, Indianapolis (CA 35) was an improved version of the preceding Northampton-Class, displacing 9,800 tons and mounting nine (9) 8-inch guns on her 610-foot hull. Her 107,000 shaft horsepower could sustain 32 knots.
