Description

The armored cruiser, or armoured cruiser (see spelling differences), is a type of cruiser, a naval warship. The armored cruiser is protectArmored Cruisered by a belt of side armor, in addition to the armored deck and protective coal bunkers that define the protected cruiser. Armored cruisers were the chief combatants in two naval battles the Battle off Ulsan in the Russo-Japanese War, and the Battle of Coronel in World War I and played important supporting roles in other battles of the period. The development of the explosive shell in the mid-1800s made the use of armored warships inevitable, despite the cost and weight. Armored cruisers began to appear in large Western navies around 1873 and the type continued to be built until 1908. Around this time they were rapidly being outclassed by the new 'all big gun' dreadnought-type warships, notably battlecruisers, which compared favorably in all aspects and thus succeeded armored cruisers.
