Flying the Flag
Throughout a long and decorated career, the USS Springfield served with distinction as a Cleveland-Class light cruiser and a Providence-Class guided missile cruiser in two different classes. Her wartime service during WWII consisted of shore bombardment and anti-aircraft picket roles in the Pacific. From 1957-1960 the vessel was converted to a guided missile cruiser. In this role, she served in the Mediterranean as a fleet flagship. In 1974 Springfield was retired and scrapped. Kit features deck guns, display stand, and Terrier guided missiles.
