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 (305 mm) guns that had been planned.
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.
Like museum ships, HMS Victory is open to the public, but she is technically still in service with the RoyalNavy, being the flagship of the Second Sea Lord/Commander-in-Chief Naval Home Command and the oldest warship still in commission in any navy.
