HK new United States buttle ship Kentucky will be the most powerful
war boat in the navy. The Kentucky is one of four sister ships, all of
which will soon be finished. The Kentucky hears on her forward and after
deck a double turret. Bach of these turrets carries two thirteen-inch guns. No
Kuropeiin power lias placed on the deek of a war ship any gun more than twelve
inches.. Thus can the Kentucky strike a b'ow with which the power of no’ other
ship can compare. A single blow of this kind would disable, if not sink, the
strongest ship of battle afloat. From bow,and stern tile Kentucky can fire sim
ultaneously a thirteen-inch gun. Tlie Kentucky will draw only twenty-five feet
of water, tliroe feet less than the lightest boats now on tlie sen. She will he
aide to sail into all the haibors. and can he docked with less difficulty than the
three other boats now building. The “ waist-tire" consists of fourteen five-inch
quick-firing guns anti tin* second batteries will he composed of twenty six-pounder
rapid-firing, six one-pounder aud four machine guns. Two military tops, mount
ing guns, complete the ship's armament, which is fur heavier than that of any
ship of the Kentucky's displacement in the world. No war ship can deliver more
metal at a broadside than can the Kentucky, ami none will have the ready con
centration of fire. The feature of the Kentucky is the form of her turrets, which
is quite new. There is a large saving in weight, which gives the bout more room
for heavy armament and more powerful machinery for propulsion. She will
carry 1,210 tons of coal, which will enable her to steam ti.iMkl miles at the rate
of ten knots an hour.
