Naval Warfare | Military History
Outfitted like battleships, Battlecruisers were purposely-designed to maintain the speed of traditional cruisers at the expense of armor protection.
A British naval development, Battlecruisers were championed by Admiral Fisher of the British Navy as an attempt to mate the destructive firepower of the Dreadnought battleship with the speed of a cruiser. The resulting design did not prove cohesive enough to warrant a new naval revolution and only the British, Japanese, and Germans went on to adopt such warships. Despite their generally flawed concept, several of the type did go on to find successes in the various wars of the 20th Century.
