The Omaha-class cruisers were 10 light cruisers produced by the United States Navy during the interwar period after World War I, utilizing designs from that era. Built in the early 1920s after World War I, this class of cruisers had improved speed, better forward guns, and torpedo tubes. During World War II, this class of cruisers mainly operated in secondary duties, such as convoy escorts, patrols, and shore bombardment both in the Atlantic and Pacific theaters. None of the ships in the class were lost during the war and were all sold for scrap shortly after.
