The result was a disaster for the Royal Navy's battlecruiser squadrons: Invincible, Queen Mary and Indefatigable exploded with the loss of all but a handful of their crews The German battlecruisers were better armoured, although L├╝tzow was damaged and had to be scuttled, and Seydlitz was heavily damaged.
After the war the Royal Navy de-emphasized battlecruisers in the orginal sense of the word and all but three were scrapped by the mid-1930s.

 cruiser   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Cruisers were also attached to the main battlefleet and used for reconnaissance, sweeping ahead of the fleet looking for the enemy.
The weakness of the battle cruiser concept was further demonstrated in the Second World War, during the hunt for the German battleship ''Bismarck'' by the British fleet in 1940.
From the 1950s to the 1970s, US Navy "cruisers" were large vessels equipped with heavy offensive missiles (including the Regulus nuclear cruise missile) for wide-ranging combat against land-based and sea-based targets.

 Cruiser   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
For much of 19th century and the first half of the 20th, the cruiser was a navy's long-range "force projection" weapon, while the larger ships stayed nearer to home.
Light cruisers were defined to be armed with 6.1 in (155 mm) guns or smaller and heavy cruisers to be armed with larger calibers, 8 in (203 mm) being particularly common.
The Royal Navy quickly scrapped most of theirs after the war, and upgraded the armor on the rest to the limited extent that was possible.

 Cruiser   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
For many years cruisers filled a sweet spot between very light craft such as the torpedo boat, and the ships intended to take part in fleet combat, later generally referred to as battleships.
Cruisers were large enough to fend off attacks from smaller ships and "ad hoc" military craft, but light enough to do so at very long ranges from their home bases.
The German Navy was the last to use this class, their post-war "pocket battleships" being used in the long distance raiding role they had originally been intended for.

 Dreadnought
The term "Treaty Cruisers" refers to the cruisers built under the treaty restrictions of the Washington Naval Treaty of 1921 and the London Naval Treaty of 1930.
As with the renamed cruisers, the name of the Princeton was immediately given to a new carrier, CV-37, which was originally supposed to be the Valley Forge.
When, after a fashion, it was revived, as the "heavy cruiser" under the regime of the Treaty Cruisers, with CA hull numbers, these were considered cruisers proper and were given city names like other cruisers.

 Ticonderoga Class Cruiser Encyclopedia Article, Definition, History, Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Ticonderoga class cruisers are the first warships in the world to use phased-array radar; the increased combat capability offered by the AEGIS combat system and the AN/SPY-1 radar system justified the changing of the classification of Ticonderoga and Yorktown from DDG (guided missile destroyer) to CG (guided missile cruiser).
The two VLS systems allow the ship to have 127 launch tubes that can carry a wide variety of missiles, including the Tomahawk cruise missile, the Standard surface-to-air missile, and the ASROC anti-submarine missile.
However, more importantly, the VLS system enables all missiles to be fully standing by at any given time, shortening the ship's reaction time.
