the top weight is awesome in this one! but drawing is good!
She's got a lot of top weight because of all she packs in - things like task force command spaces are volume intensive. Just for the record, her SPY-1 faces are about as high above the water line as Atago's are - on a hull that is about 2000 tons smaller.
How dare you insult the Burkette
You sure there aren't supposed to be an SVTT or two somewhere?
If I had to guess, the other side of the hull. I don't have any rendering of the port side - only the starboard.
