Default The 8 Deadliest Warships To ever Set Sail

There are eight of'em,and all 8 served in WW2...

Nazi Germanys Bismarck and Von Tirpitz

Imperial Japans Yamato and Musashi

The other 4 are American,USS Missouri,USS New Jersey,USS Iowa,and finally the USS Wisconsin

All of these great battleships have been recalled and recommissioned more than once,since the end of World War II, and have served in the Korean conflict, in Vietnam, and in the first Gulf War.

No country builds warships like these anymore. Few can afford it. Their hulls have withstood 14 and 15 inch shells fired from enmy ships, and the ferocious attacks of Japanese Kamikaze aircraft, which sunk many of our less well armored ships in the bloody fighting for Okinawa and Leyte Gulf.

Farther into the future, as different and more dangerous threats appear, it is possible that naval planners will again turn to the construction of this type ship. Remember the USS Kentucky, and the USS Montana, keels laid in the waning days of the war, and scrapped as the war ended.

(Pictured below):Bismarck,Von Tipitz(Germany)

Yamato,Musashi(Japan)

USS MIssouri,USS New Jersey,USS Iowa,USS Wisconsin(United States)

I'd say there's a few British warships that should be in there.

The reason no one builds huge battleships anymore is because they have no purpose in naval warfare anymore. WWII saw the beginning of Carriers dominating the seas, and ever since, battleships have been relegated to shore bombardment duty. The real anti-ship work is done by aircraft launched from carriers.

All four non-American battleships you listed were sunk by allied torpedo planes launched from carriers. The American ships you mention are preserved as museum ships today, and the one to see action the longest was the Wisconsin as it did some shore bombardment during the first gulf war.

I don't see why you say that battleships are even a consideration anymore.

Bismark was destroyed by HMS Hood

Von Tripitz was sunk by Lancaster bombers

Surely some early ships by either England/France or Spain should be in there - those 1700/1800 wars were nuts and allways at sea.

Even further back - the Greeks/Egyptians/Romans or even the Vikings should be mentioned.

HMS Hood was sunk in an engagement involving the Bismarck. Some days later the Bismarck was disabled by torpedo planes launched off HMS Ark Royal, allowing British surface ships to blast it for 2 hours until it finally sank. While technically not sunk by carrier launched planes, they did the damage necessary to put the killing blow on the Bismarck.

My bad on the Tirpitz, you're right about the bomber planes.

Um. The USS Ohio? How many of those ships could sneak up to enemy forces and launch 12 ballistic missiles at them, containing numerous nuclear warheads. I think this one is a no-contest.
