The design drawings for Measure 33/22D for the Atlanta
class light cruisers dated April 18, 1944. The vertical colors would be pale gray (5-P), haze gray (5-H) and navy blue (5-N) with a pattern of deck blue (20-B) and ocean gray (5-O) on horizontal surfaces. Measure 32 would be light gray (5-L), ocean gray (5-O) and dull black (BK).
This design first appeared as a pattern for Measure 16 in June 1942. It was later drawn in December 1943 for the Fletcher and Allen M. Sumner classes of destroyers and later drawn for the Porter and Benson classes of destroyers. The battleship USS Missouri (BB-63) used Design 22D in Measure 32 colors of dull black, ocean gray and light gray. Design 22D was used for the Atlanta class light cruisers USS San Juan (CL-54) and USS Flint (CL-97). They were painted using Measure 32 in three colors, even though the drawing specified Measure 33 colors.
