In size and gun power the Penn
sylvania is greater even than the
Queen Elizabeth of the British navy,
which led - the recent terrific assault
of the allies, on ?the forts . of the
Dardanelles. . While the British mon
rter .carries larger guns, her main
battery is only two-thirds the size of
that of the Pennsylvania in number
Mid the-American battleship is 3,000
tons greater In size.
The main . battery of the Pennsyl
rania will consist of twelve 14-lnch,
46 calibre, rifles, set In four turrets,
three guns to a turret, the plan of
big gun arrangement adopted in the
Bister ships- which preceded her, the
' Nevada and . Oklahoma. Her -tonnage
measurement is 31,400 against
27,500 for the Nevada and Oklahoma
and the Queen Elisabeth. . The Jatter,
however, carries eight 15 -Inch rifles,
45 calibre, set two to a turret, while
the Nevada and Oklahoma have ten
J 4 -inch rifles each In two 3 -gun and
E-gun turrets. : In all these ships, in
cluding the Pennsylvania, the turrets
are all on the center line to concen
, Irate their fire on either broadside.
Five battleships of the British navy
yet to be launched will have less ton
nage than the Pennsylvania, the ships
of - the Royal Sovereign class being
tof 24,500 tons displacement, and none
svill equal the Pennsylvania in arma
ment Each la designed to carry
eight 15-lnch guns.
Details of four other British" battleships,-
already authorized, are not
known here officially.
Five ships the Japanese navy
estimated for in ,1914 and with their
displacement of 30,000 tons, but will
carry the same main battery -of
twelve 14-ineh rifles. They wjll ex
eed the Pennsylvania in speed, esti
mates calling for 22 knots against 21
knots for the Pennsylvania.

the Royal Sovereign class will, make
at least 22.2 knots.
Since the outbreak of the war de
tails as to foreign naval programs
have been jealously guarded and it is
probable' that Great Britain, Germany
and France have laid down many
vessels of which no report has been
made. So far as is known, however,
no vessels have been planned which
will exceed in size the three Ameri
can ships of the California class,
wrrk on which has barely started.
These will have a . displacement of
32,000 tons each , and . armament
equal to that of the Pennsylvania,
The cruising' radius of the Penn
sylvania will be considerably increas
ed by .the fact, that she will be
equipped for oil fuel exclusively and
will have a capacity of 2,322 tons of
fuel oil. - The Queen Elizabeth has a
capacity of 4,000 tons of oil because
of her high speed . requirements.
From her enormous main battery
the Pennsylvania will be able to hurl,
with the pressure- of a single firing
lever, 7 1-2 tons of steel on either
broadside. In addition she will carry
a secondary battery of twenty-two 6
inch rifles for defense against tor
pedo boats. She will be fitted also
with four submerged 2 1-inch torpedo
tubes and her ships company will be
composed of 65 officers, 8 63 blue
jackets and 74 marines. The ship
measures 608 feet over all and 9 7
feet beam and her mean draft is 28
feet, 10 inches, almost the limit in
size for the Panama Canal and pres
ent navy dry docks. There are only
few docks in. the world which can re
ceive her and she could not enter
many busy harbors except under
most favorable conditions of tide and
When completed the Pennsylvania
will have cost the government more
than $13,000,000. She will be ready
for commission, under contract,- by
February 28, 1916. Her keel ,was
laid October 27, 1913.
The enormous size of the new ship
and the startling rapidity with which
oattleship misconstruction had devel
oped, even before the great war, is
indicated by comparison of the Penn
sylvania with the British battleship
Dreadnaught, first of - all-big-gun
ships in' any navy. The Dreadnaught
was estimated for in 1907. She was
designed to displace 17,900 tons but
actually is considerably larger. In
the main battery are ten 12-inch guns
with a broadside fire of six guns and
her trial speed was 21.2 knots.
' The Pennsylvania will be equipped
with turbine engines as Is the Okla
homa, the Queen Elizabeth and all of
the newest English, German and

tleships of the California' class will
have turbine engines and the other
reciprocating in line with the navy
department's policy - of -not entirely
abandoning the reciprocating type
until a thoroughly satisfactory ma
rine turbine is found. If the experi
ment on the California with electric
drive, current to. be generated by
steam turbines running at high speed,
is successful, the engine problem
may be solved. It already has proved
satisfactory in a navy collier and the
experiment with the California only
needs to " determine' ; whether it is
equally efficient in high power, plants.
