https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wyoming-class_battleship#Modifications If you're to lazy to read yourself, I'll just tell you the important bits myself: Under the terms of the 1930 London Naval Treaty, Wyoming was to be demilitarized and converted into a training ship. During the demilitarization process, her anti-torpedo bulges, side armor, and half of her main battery guns were removed. Wyoming was modernized at Norfolk Navy Yard from 12 January to 3 April 1944; the reconstruction removed the last of her three 12-inch gun turrets, and replaced them with four twin and two single enclosed mounts for 5"/38 caliber guns. New fire control radars were also installed; these modifications allowed Wyoming to train anti-aircraft gunners with the most modern equipment they would use while in combat with the fleet. Modifications to Arkansas during World War II were kept to a minimum. In 1942, Arkansas received a new tripod foremast and bridgework, along with more anti-aircraft guns throughout the war. By 1945, she carried nine quadruple 40 mm Bofors mounts and twenty-eight 20 mm Oerlikons, and the number of 3 in guns had been increased to ten. This tells us that they essentially turned it into an AA escort, and a CL/CA. Could this possibly be a replacement for the Cleveland once it is changed to the CA (I believe so - Correct me if I'm wrong). Perhaps WG could take a look at this?
