I present to you a class of ships that appear to have escaped being captured by this site; the Tennessee class of armored cruisers.
They were a quartet of armored cruisers, the last of their kind built by the US Navy. Built to rectify some issues the navy had with the last class; the Pennsylvanias. With other nations moving to, or away from 8 inch guns the US cruisers would be undergunned compared to other armored cruisers. To rectify this, the US would move from 8"/40 caliber guns to 10"/40 caliber guns, and with the addition of smokeless gunpowder gave them a range of 20000 yards at 15 degrees elevation. The Tennessee was regarded as among the best armored cruisers in the world, as their guns were not placed close to the stem and stern as on other cruisers, this plus her high freeboard and a tendency to pitch, rather than roll, made it possible to fire the guns even in rough weather. The class was designed for a top speed of 22 knots, a speed they easily reached, even without using full power. With the addition of the secondary battery of 16x6"/50 caliber guns and 22x3"/50 caliber guns gave the Tennessees the heaviest broadside of any cruier until the advent of the Blücher and the battlecruisers. Even though the armor belt was reduced in certain places, it was stretched, and heightened to cover more areas, giving the ship better overall protection against cruiser caliber guns. With the introduction of the dreadnought-type battleship and battlecruisers, the US navy lost the belief that armored cruisers were useful as battleships were just as fast, and battlecruisers even faster still. Future cruiser designs would either be smaller, and lighter scout cruisers, or larger cruisers with 12 inch guns on a hull of similar shape and size to the Tennessee.
Initially named after stated, the cruisers were renamed after cities in the states they were originally named to free up names for future battleships.
