A class between a cruiser and a battleship; got the firepower to out gun anything that can catch it and the speed and maneuverability to out run anything that can out gun it.

Do you see them in the game?

I think that'd be the light corvette.

... What? No one said anything about armour!


We need "Alpha" and "Beta" Camo Patterns! Just plaster the Word all over the ships hull in various sizes and angles !

The battlecruiser was a type of warship poised dangerously between the true battleship and the cruiser. They carried the big guns of the battleship, but without the armour needed to take on similarly armed ships. The battlecruiser was a short-lived concept. It officially emerged in 1912 to describe ships already in service, while the last battlecruiser to be completed was HMS Hood in 1920.

The first ships to be considered as battlecruisers were the three ships of the Invincible class, laid down in 1906 and completed in 1908-1909. They were initially described as armoured cruisers, and followed the standard pattern of such ships. Over the previous decade the Royal Navy had been building increasingly large armoured cruisers, starting with the 12,000t Cressy class of 1897, armed with two 9.2in and twelve 6in guns and protected by up to six inches of belt armour. The last class before the Invincible was the Minotaur class, of 14,600t ships armed with four 9.2in and ten 7.5in guns. These ships were based on the Lord Nelson class battleships, but with reduced armour to provide increased speed.
