The U.S. Navy Is Building Cruisers—It’s Just Not Calling Them That

There is, at first glance, a stark difference between the world’s leading navies when it comes to building cruisers—the biggest, most heavily armed surface warships now that battleships are long gone.

In just three years starting in mid-2017, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Navy launched eight new Type 055 cruisers. Each Type 055 displaces 12,000 tons and packs 112 vertical-launch cells for anti-air, anti-ship and land-attack missiles.
