High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Minas Geraes, spelled Minas Gerais in modern sources, was an encouraçado (English: battleship) built for the Brazilian Navy. Named in honor of the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, the ship was laid down in April 1907 as the lead ship of her class, making the country the third country to have a dreadnought under construction. She was completed in 1908. Although frequently in poor condition, the major warships constructed under Brazil's 1904 building program Minas Geraes, her sister São Paulo, the cruisers Bahia and Rio Grande do Sul, and most of the ten Pará-class destroyers formed the core of the Brazilian Navy from their completion in 1908 1910 until the beginning of the Second World War. Not long after her commissioning, Minas Geraes was featured in the 19 March 1910 edition of Scientific American, which described her as "the last word in heavy battleship design and the [...] most powerfully armed warship afloat". Seven months later, she was the focal point of the Revolta de Chibata (English: Revolt of the Whip). The mutiny spread from Minas Geraes to other ships in the Navy, including the recently commissioned São Paulo

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.

British Battleships 1914-18 2

In 1906, the Germans began building their own dreadnought fleet armed with larger guns, word of which soon reached the British Admiralty. This raised the spectre that the British dreadnought fleet would be outgunned, and prompted the Admiralty to order the building of their own 'super dreadnoughts'. The first of these new dreadnoughts were laid down in 1909, and entered service three years later. The British public supported this programme, and the slogan 'we want eight and cannot wait' became popular, a reference to the building of eight of these super dreadnoughts. Four more super dreadnoughts entered service in 1914. By then the Admiralty had developed a new programme of 'fast battleships', armed with 15-inch guns. These powerful warships entered service in time to play a part in the battle of Jutland in 1916. World War I broke out before the Royal Navy had fully evaluated these new warships, and so lessons had to be learned through experience - often the hard way. Although none of these super dreadnoughts were lost in battle, their performance at the battle of Jutland led to a re-evaluation of the way they were operated. Still, for four years they denied control of the sea to the enemy, and so played a major part in the final collapse of Imperial Germany.
