The US aerial fleets have a new vessel entering service – the battlecruiser Lexington.
The Lexington’s unique layout has her four heavy-bore guns in huge semi-circular sponsons, able to rotate through 110° arcs. Secondary armament is a more conventional broadside layout, with smaller guns arrayed either side. Two torpedo tubes fire through the front hull.
The Lexington is an all-metal model consisting of six parts – upper and lower hull, two funnels, tail and mast.
