This is the design drawing for Measure 33/8C for the Brooklyn
class light cruisers drawn on July 28, 1944. The vertical colors were specified to be pale gray (5-P), haze gray (5-H) and navy blue (5-N) with a pattern of ocean gray (5-O) and deck blue (20-B) on the horizontal surfaces. Measure 32 would use light gray (5-L), ocean gray (5-O) and dull black (BK) on the vertical surfaces.
Design 8C shows themes and influences from some other designs. The port bow panels are reminiscent of similar panels on Design 10A and both port and starboard stern areas show influences from Design 16D. There have been no other drawings of Design 8C found.
