    As international tension grew in the 1930s, news that Japan's new Mogami-class ships could outperform many of the Royal Navy's existing heavy cruisers eventually resulted in the commissioning of ten Town-class cruisers between 1937 and 1939. This history profiles each of the vessels, which saw extensive service throughout the Second World War, including the last of the line, HMS Belfast, which is now a museum ship, permanently moored on the Thames in London.
