Battleship - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (7384 words)
The Imperial Japanese Navy's Satsuma was the first battleship in the world to be designed and laid down as an all-big-gun battleship, although gun shortages only allowed her to be equipped with four of the twelve 12-in (300 mm) guns that had been planned.
Instead of further attacks by aircraft, on Monday 27 May the Royal Navy's battleships King George V and Rodney with 2 cruisers and a number of destroyers engaged her with guns and torpedoes, such as the HMS Dorsetshire.
The ships, while comparatively big for a cruiser, are not battleships in the traditional sense; they adhere to the design premise of a large missile cruiser and lack traditional battleship traits such as heavy armor and significant shore bombardment capability.
