The Atlantas were a class of Light Cruisers that had a main battery of 16x 5" Cannons. With short range, high anti-air capabilities, and fast speeds for American Cruisers, they were leading Destroyer Squadrons during WW2.
The Atlanta Class had a Semi-sister, the Juneau Class. The primary difference is the Juneaus had only 12x5" Cannons, and no torpedoes, in exchange for more low-caliber Anti-aircraft (40mm, 20mm Cannons)
Of the Atlantas, two were sunk, both in the First Battle of Guadacanal.
