CA-136 and CG-11 are the same hull and considered the 3rd USS Chicago, so there have only been 4. See Chicago III, the US Navy's Dictionary of American Fighting ships, by the US Navy which discusses the 3rd USS Chicago CA 136 / CG 11. And also the CG 11 (ex-CA 136) page on the Naval Vessel Register. --Dual Freq (talk) 23:06, 24 November 2014 (UTC)
