Its worth noting that the terms heavy and light cruiser are more to do with armament and armour than overall size. While the more combat oriented heavy cruisers were usually larger owing to the extra armour thickness and larger caliber main armament, some larger light cruiser designs made for long range patrol duties, or commerce raiding, actually out massed contemporary heavy cruisers.
