By the s, there was an increasing similarity between battleship designs, and the type that later became known as the 'pre-dreadnought battleship' emerged.
These were heavily armored ships, mounting a mixed battery of guns in turrets, and without sails. The intermediate and secondary batteries had two roles.
Against major ships, it was thought a 'hail of fire' from quick-firing secondary weapons could distract enemy gun crews by inflicting damage to the superstructure, and they would be more effective against smaller ships such as cruisers.
Smaller guns pounders and smaller were reserved for protecting the battleship against the threat of torpedo attack from destroyers and torpedo boats.
The beginning of the pre-dreadnought era coincided with Britain reasserting her naval dominance. For many years previously, Britain had taken naval supremacy for granted.
Expensive naval projects were criticised by political leaders of all inclinations. The principle that Britain's navy should be more powerful than the two next most powerful fleets combined was established.
This policy was designed to deter France and Russia from building more battleships, but both nations nevertheless expanded their fleets with more and better pre-dreadnoughts in the s.
In the last years of the 19th century and the first years of the 20th, the escalation in the building of battleships became an arms race between Britain and Germany.
The German naval laws of and authorised a fleet of 38 battleships, a vital threat to the balance of naval power. In , the United Kingdom had 38 battleships, twice as many as France and almost as many as the rest of the world put together.
In , Britain's lead was far smaller due to competition from France, Germany, and Russia, as well as the development of pre-dreadnought fleets in Italy, the United States and Japan.
Pre-dreadnoughts continued the technical innovations of the ironclad. Turrets, armor plate, and steam engines were all improved over the years, and torpedo tubes were also introduced.
A small number of designs, including the American Kearsarge and Virginia classes , experimented with all or part of the 8-inch intermediate battery superimposed over the inch primary.
Results were poor: recoil factors and blast effects resulted in the 8-inch battery being completely unusable, and the inability to train the primary and intermediate armaments on different targets led to significant tactical limitations.
Even though such innovative designs saved weight a key reason for their inception , they proved too cumbersome in practice. While the Japanese had laid down an all-big-gun battleship, Satsuma , in  and the concept of an all-big-gun ship had been in circulation for several years, it had yet to be validated in combat.
Dreadnought sparked a new arms race , principally between Britain and Germany but reflected worldwide, as the new class of warships became a crucial element of national power.
Technical development continued rapidly through the dreadnought era, with steep changes in armament, armor and propulsion. Ten years after Dreadnought ' s commissioning, much more powerful ships, the super-dreadnoughts, were being built.
In the first years of the 20th century, several navies worldwide experimented with the idea of a new type of battleship with a uniform armament of very heavy guns.
Admiral Vittorio Cuniberti , the Italian Navy's chief naval architect, articulated the concept of an all-big-gun battleship in The Russo-Japanese War provided operational experience to validate the "all-big-gun" concept.
During the Battle of the Yellow Sea on August 10, , Admiral Togo of the Imperial Japanese Navy commenced deliberate inch gun fire at the Russian flagship Tzesarevich at 14, yards 13, meters.
When dealing with a mixed and inch armament. The —04 design also retained traditional triple-expansion steam engines. As early as , Jackie Fisher had been convinced of the need for fast, powerful ships with an all-big-gun armament.
It was to prove this revolutionary technology that Dreadnought was designed in January , laid down in October and sped to completion by She carried ten inch guns, had an inch armor belt, and was the first large ship powered by turbines.
She mounted her guns in five turrets; three on the centerline one forward, two aft and two on the wings , giving her at her launch twice the broadside of any other warship.
Her armor was heavy enough for her to go head-to-head with any other ship in a gun battle, and conceivably win.
Dreadnought was to have been followed by three Invincible -class battlecruisers, their construction delayed to allow lessons from Dreadnought to be used in their design.
While Fisher may have intended Dreadnought to be the last Royal Navy battleship,  the design was so successful he found little support for his plan to switch to a battlecruiser navy.
Although there were some problems with the ship the wing turrets had limited arcs of fire and strained the hull when firing a full broadside, and the top of the thickest armor belt lay below the waterline at full load , the Royal Navy promptly commissioned another six ships to a similar design in the Bellerophon and St.
Vincent classes. An American design, South Carolina , authorized in and laid down in December , was another of the first dreadnoughts, but she and her sister, Michigan , were not launched until Both used triple-expansion engines and had a superior layout of the main battery, dispensing with Dreadnought ' s wing turrets.
They thus retained the same broadside, despite having two fewer guns. In , before the revolution in design brought about by HMS Dreadnought , the Royal Navy had 62 battleships in commission or building, a lead of 26 over France and 50 over Germany.
Major naval powers raced to build their own dreadnoughts. Possession of modern battleships was not only seen as vital to naval power, but also, as with nuclear weapons after World War II , represented a nation's standing in the world.
By virtue of geography, the Royal Navy was able to use her imposing battleship and battlecruiser fleet to impose a strict and successful naval blockade of Germany and kept Germany's smaller battleship fleet bottled up in the North Sea : only narrow channels led to the Atlantic Ocean and these were guarded by British forces.
The German strategy was therefore to try to provoke an engagement on their terms: either to induce a part of the Grand Fleet to enter battle alone, or to fight a pitched battle near the German coastline, where friendly minefields, torpedo-boats and submarines could be used to even the odds.
Submarines were the only vessels in the Imperial German Navy able to break out and raid British commerce in force, but even though they sank many merchant ships, they could not successfully counter-blockade the United Kingdom; the Royal Navy successfully adopted convoy tactics to combat Germany's submarine counter-blockade and eventually defeated it.
The first two years of war saw the Royal Navy's battleships and battlecruisers regularly "sweep" the North Sea making sure that no German ships could get in or out.
Even some of those that did manage to get out were hunted down by battlecruisers, as in the Battle of the Falklands , December 7, The results of sweeping actions in the North Sea were battles including the Heligoland Bight and Dogger Bank and German raids on the English coast, all of which were attempts by the Germans to lure out portions of the Grand Fleet in an attempt to defeat the Royal Navy in detail.
On May 31, , a further attempt to draw British ships into battle on German terms resulted in a clash of the battlefleets in the Battle of Jutland.
Less than two months later, the Germans once again attempted to draw portions of the Grand Fleet into battle. The resulting Action of 19 August proved inconclusive.
This reinforced German determination not to engage in a fleet to fleet battle. In the other naval theatres there were no decisive pitched battles.
In the Black Sea , engagement between Russian and Ottoman battleships was restricted to skirmishes. In the Baltic Sea , action was largely limited to the raiding of convoys, and the laying of defensive minefields; the only significant clash of battleship squadrons there was the Battle of Moon Sound at which one Russian pre-dreadnought was lost.
The Adriatic was in a sense the mirror of the North Sea: the Austro-Hungarian dreadnought fleet remained bottled up by the British and French blockade.
And in the Mediterranean , the most important use of battleships was in support of the amphibious assault on Gallipoli.
The threat that German U-boats posed to British dreadnoughts was enough to cause the Royal Navy to change their strategy and tactics in the North Sea to reduce the risk of U-boat attack.
Whilst the escape of the German fleet from the superior British firepower at Jutland was effected by the German cruisers and destroyers successfully turning away the British battleships, the German attempt to rely on U-boat attacks on the British fleet failed.
In large fleet actions, however, destroyers and torpedo boats were usually unable to get close enough to the battleships to damage them. She was sunk by destroyers during the night phase of the Battle of Jutland.
The German High Seas Fleet, for their part, were determined not to engage the British without the assistance of submarines; and since the submarines were needed more for raiding commercial traffic, the fleet stayed in port for much of the war.
For many years, Germany simply had no battleships. The Armistice with Germany required that most of the High Seas Fleet be disarmed and interned in a neutral port; largely because no neutral port could be found, the ships remained in British custody in Scapa Flow , Scotland.
The Treaty of Versailles specified that the ships should be handed over to the British. Instead, most of them were scuttled by their German crews on June 21, just before the signature of the peace treaty.
The treaty also limited the German Navy, and prevented Germany from building or possessing any capital ships. The inter-war period saw the battleship subjected to strict international limitations to prevent a costly arms race breaking out.
While the victors were not limited by the Treaty of Versailles, many of the major naval powers were crippled after the war. Faced with the prospect of a naval arms race against the United Kingdom and Japan, which would in turn have led to a possible Pacific war , the United States was keen to conclude the Washington Naval Treaty of This treaty limited the number and size of battleships that each major nation could possess, and required Britain to accept parity with the U.
These treaties became effectively obsolete on September 1, at the beginning of World War II , but the ship classifications that had been agreed upon still apply.
The treaties also inhibited development by imposing upper limits on the weights of ships. Designs like the projected British N3-class battleship, the first American South Dakota class , and the Japanese Kii class —all of which continued the trend to larger ships with bigger guns and thicker armor—never got off the drawing board.
Those designs which were commissioned during this period were referred to as treaty battleships. As early as , the British Admiral Percy Scott predicted that battleships would soon be made irrelevant by aircraft.
In the s, General Billy Mitchell of the United States Army Air Corps , believing that air forces had rendered navies around the world obsolete, testified in front of Congress that "1, bombardment airplanes can be built and operated for about the price of one battleship" and that a squadron of these bombers could sink a battleship, making for more efficient use of government funds.
Navy, but Mitchell was nevertheless allowed to conduct a careful series of bombing tests alongside Navy and Marine bombers.
Although Mitchell had required "war-time conditions", the ships sunk were obsolete, stationary, defenseless and had no damage control.
