I am at a loss as to how anyone can conclude that the three last ships of the Fiji Class/Colony Class Cruisers, can be construed as anything other than Colony Class Cruisers. All eleven Cruisers were named after Colonies of the British Empire, as their names portray. Just because the later versions were modified, does not mean in my view that they have to be called anything other than Colony Class. The modifications were simply the removal of X Turret, and the addition of a 4" Armoured Belt. Also the addition of AAA Armament, which caused the need for the redistribution of weight to save the Ship turning Turtle when firing a Broadside with its 6" Guns.
