Its also worth noting from this article that the reason why ships like the Cleveland and Brooklyn class cruisers with heaps of 6" guns were built was to counter the new Japanese destroyers equipped with a large amount of long range and deadly type 93, 610mm, "Long Lance" torpedoes via the use of long range accurate gunnery with the help of radar.
