Wichita — American Tier VIII cruiser.

A heavy cruiser that inherited architecture and arrangement from the Brooklyn-class light cruisers. Unlike ships of the previous New Orleans class, Wichita had a new design of the main battery turrets which provided a higher firing accuracy. In addition, she had heavier armor and carried more advanced dual-purpose guns.
